R.E.M. call it quits

After 30+ years of making music, 15 studio albums, and over 25 million albums sold, R.E.M. announced today that they are breaking up. Collapse Into Now, which was released this passed March, is (for now) their final album. Here’s the message straight from R.E.M.’s official website:

β€œTo our Fans and Friends: As R.E.M., and as lifelong friends and co-conspirators, we have decided to call it a day as a band. We walk away with a great sense of gratitude, of finality, and of astonishment at all we have accomplished. To anyone who ever felt touched by our music, our deepest thanks for listening.”
