Following a lack of activity and a solo performance from Heems at Munich's On3 Festival over the weekend when the group were set to perform, the confirmation of Das Racist's demise has finally been announced.

Heems broke the news at the festival, announcing "You guys wanna know the secret? Alright, so I’m going to do some Das Racist songs, but Das Racist is breaking up and we’re not a band anymore."

Kool A.D. then want on to confirm the news via Twitter:

The third and often forgotten member of the group, Dapwell, went into further detail with Spin: I was bummed when we actually broke up, when it was done, mostly because it was a way to make money really easily. Now, I probably won't be able to make money that easily ever again. But we had a plan to break up around May. We had just signed this record deal and we were going to put out one proper album and then go on a farewell tour, release a proper breaking up statement that could have been really funny, maybe a weird, stupid video. Now, all of that has gone to shit."

He continued: "... it was just about money, which some people can do, but apparently, we’re not good at doing things we don't want to do anymore. It made everyone go crazy and get angry in such typical band fashion: guys arguing and then drinking. It's just stupid. Because in the beginning, it was just us. We'd all hang out all the time, we all lived in this apartment together. Not that we were super friends, but sort of, you know? Really, it's a huge opportunity squandered."

A shame, but totally inevitable.
