Swedish indie-pop quintet Those Dancing Days have announced that they'll be putting the band 'to bed for a while' after almost six years together.

Posting on their website the band, who this year released their second album Daydreams & Nightmares, explained the decision:

We have decided that we will be putting Those Dancing Days to bed for a while. We have been together as a band for almost six years now and have had such an amazing time - we have grown up together, created together, seen the world together. We have been so incredibly lucky and feel so honoured that so many have appreciated our music. As a young band we have had the pleasure of being role models for other young musicians - something we have found incredibly fulfilling and important - and especially to young female musicians like ourselves. Go girls - never doubt yourselves and never stop dreaming!

After we played the Popaganda festival this last weekend we felt it was the perfect ending to the summer and a good time for us to say good bye for a while. We want to explore things on our own for a change; some of us will go back to school, some of us will be taking jobs - and without a doubt all of us will explore new musical settings.

To all our fans - thank you for being wonderful! We hope to see you again in the future and until we do - live and love!xxxx

As a parting gift the band will release one last single from Daydreams & Nightmares - 'Help Me Close My Eyes'.
