It's a sad day for indie rock lovers, as The Maccabees have announced they are splitting after 14 years. "The decision has obviously been an incredibly difficult one, given that The Maccabees has been such a huge part of our lives until now," the band said in a statement.

The London rockers, who are at their "creative peak," explain to fans there was no falling out with any members. The statement also reveals they will continue to make new music and that "there will be some farewell celebration shows announced in the near future."

The Maccabees first emerged in 2007 with their debut album Colour It In. The band released three more records, with the final one being last year's U.K. chart topper Marks to Prove It.

Celebrate the memory of The Maccabees by jamming to some of their biggest hits and watching a vintage Fuse interview where they talk touring with friend Florence Welch.
