Vagabond have announced their decision to split up. Luke Fitton has posted this message on Twitter:
«We have all moved on to new projects as things haven't worked out the way we would have hoped with Vagabond. We are all very much in support of each others decisions to move on musically and there is no hard feelings. I'd personally like to thank everyone who has supported us and we assure you that everything we are currently working on is very exciting and we hope you enjoy it just as much.»Luke Fitton and Stephen Carter will continue to work on various projects with Xenomania. You can follow what they're up to on Twitter:
Karl Penney and Sam Odiwe are doing various session work and Alex Vargas has started a new solo project. On his MySpace, Alex says that "electro rock'n'soul" is now his musical path. He posted this message on Vagabond's MySpace: «Currently I am in LA recording. Gotta love the sun! Changes are happening, it's all very exciting! The new material is sounding great and some of it will be ready for you guys to hear in a matter of days.»
