Rock Band Jet Breaks Up
Jet scored a massive hit in 2004 with "Are You Gonna Be My Girl," but they haven't had much luck in the music industry since then. On Monday, the Australian rock band officially called it quits.
"After many successful years of writing, recording and touring we wish to announce our discontinuation as a group," they said on their official website. "From the many pubs, theatres, stadiums and festivals all across the world it was the fans that made our amazing story possible and we wish to thank them all. Thank you, and goodnight."
The band consisted of lead guitarist Cameron Muncey, bassist Mark Wilson, and brothers Nic and Chris Cester on vocals/rhythm guitar and drums, respectively. Previous members include Doug Armstrong and Jason Doukas.
Prior to disbanding, Jet's debut album, Get Born, went platinum in the United States. They released two more albums, Shine On, in 2006, and Shaka Rock, in 2009. Their other hits include "Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is," "Cold Hard Bitch" and "Look What You've Done."
