The Welsh band, who only released their debut album at the end of last year, wrote on their Facebook page this morning that they "are sad to announce that as of now Gallops is dead. We've been to some really great places over the last 6 years and met some amazing people but Gallops as we know it has unfortunately run it's course. We'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone that has supported us along the way.Watch this space for future projects from members of the band. Music will continue, Gallops will not."

This means the cancellation of several upcoming live performances, including a slot at this year's The Great Escape festival in Brighton.
