Melbourne band Pagan have today announced their disbandment.
The group have taken to social media to share the news, with an obituary-style post.
"With a heavy heart, we announce the death of the rock and roll band Pagan who passed away peacefully in their home of Melbourne today, aged seven glorious years," it reads.
"The band leave behind a cult of beautiful followers and friends, a critically acclaimed album; Black Wash and memories of some of the wildest tours, shows, parties, late nights and dance floors imaginable; vivid to some, vague to many, but fond to all."
"The Pagan family (sister, Nikki Brumen and brothers, Matthew Marasco, Xavier Santilli and Daniel Bonnici) would like to extend its truest thanks and praise to the wonderful team of exceptional individuals; booking agents, record labels, publicists, recording engineers, visual artists, promoters and managers who believed in the band enough to want to play a part in keeping the band alive and well for so long.
"Each of you have been instrumental in developing the band’s music, ideas and messages to reach some unimaginable heights and places that only existed in their dreams.
"Above all else, the family’s eternal love and gratitude is sent to each and every single member of the Pagan cult. Without your faith, support and heart, there simply is no cult. Thank you and bless your wonderful souls to no end."
