Last night, Manchester band WU LYF posted a new song to their YouTube account, but sadly, it’s not pointing in the direction of a new record. Instead, the description that accompanied “T R I U M P H” explains that the band is no more:
“By the time I wrote this I was all ready gone. You know you aint got nothing but time, but time isn’t an infinite currency I want to see wasted. If this is our last month living, apocalypse looming, I am not going to spend my final hours waiting in purgatory. I am done.

Break-ups are always so bittersweet, and it’s unfortunate that WU LYF decided to stop making music after only releasing one album, 2011’s Go Tell Fire to the Mountain. Listen to “T R I U M P H” below and read the rest of the comments from the band, as well as the lyrics to their farewell track, on YouTube.
UPDATE: It appears that WU LYF has removed the video from their YouTube account. Thankfully, a YouTube user has uploaded “T R I U M P H.” Check it out below.
