Chicago duo Gauntlet Hair have split up. They announced yesterday on Facebook "Gauntlet Hair has reached its end. Thank you all for your support these past 4 years," and this had been backed up by the band's representative.

Making guitar driven experimental pop, Gauntlet Hair released two albums together; 2011's self titled record and last month's Stills, which spawned the single 'Human Nature'.

They were due to play shows the coming months, but there no official statement as to whether these will be going ahead.
