Good news and band news for fans of Dry The River. The good news is there's some new material with the band dropping a new EP today - the band news is that it's their last and they're splitting up. 

The band became favourites at festivals, but never quite amassed the following that matched the sheer scale and scope of their huge alt-folk sound from their two albums, Alarms In The Heart and Shallow Bed. 

As a parting gift, the band today release their final EP - Hooves Of Doubt. It's available now on iTunes here or listen to it below. 

"Sons & Daughters of the River, We've had an incredible seven years, but we've decided it's time to move on to new endeavours," say the band in a statement. 

"This message is a thank you, really - your figurative and literal support has single-handedly kept us going, through rough economic times, label and lineup changes. Although the music industry is changing the underlying transaction is always the same - when you buy records, tickets and t-shirts you keep the bands you love afloat, and we're grateful beyond words that you've carried us through more than 500 shows in 50 countries.

"Today we release a parting gift in the form of an EP 'Hooves of Doubt', a collection of songs recorded at the same time as Alarms in the Heart. You can listen / buy / stream that below. Thanks to Huw Stephens for playing the title track on his show last night."

They continued: "Love to everyone who's been part of our extended family for this unpredictable and unimaginable journey. Look after yourselves, and hopefully we'll bump into some of you in our new lives."
