It seems R.E.M. splitting up has had a much bigger impact than you'd think, as Ponytail have finally called it a day. Ok, it's unlikely that the indie dinosaurs had anything to do with it, but it's sad all the same.

Here's the statement from the band's manager:

“We regret to inform you that the wonder group known as Ponytail have officially called it a day. After releasing their amazing album Do Whatever You Want to All the Time they were unable to make the touring portion come to life as the members have dispersed across the country in search of other life experiences. It's a bummer the world will never see Ponytail live again because it was truly honest music that filled you with extreme joy. An experience like that is rare these days and if you did see Ponytail live consider yourself lucky. Hopefully more bands will come along like Ponytail and shed light on the fakers. Much love to the future. Xoxo. Sir james winnie”
