Founded 10 years ago, Pendulum were an Australian-British drum and bass (DnB) cum rock band hailing from Perth, Western Australia. Its founders, Rob Swire, Gareth McGrillen, and Paul Harding produced three full-length records (the last of which being their 2010’s “Immersion”).
We say everything in past tense because a week ago, rumours were flying around on the interwebs claiming that the group might or might not split.
And just today, it was announced that the band has indeed part ways to focus on their individual side projects.
The announcement came via their official Twitter account, stating that they will no longer be touring or producing music together:
Pendulum’s main man Rob Swire, however, is all geared up to remain active and continue releasing music through his Knife Party Inc. project.
Just in case you haven’t heard any of Knife Party Inc.’s work, here:

Also, it’s highly possible that the remaining now ex-Pendulum members will do the same. As a matter of fact, word on the street is that they will still DJ occasionally under the name (who can give the name up anyway, right?) but Pendulum will no longer be an official group.
Aww. Those were good times though, we must say. We wonder now if they might just come together again sometime later or somewhere down the road to make another album.
You know, for old times’ sake.
