Hip-hop boy band Brockhampton has canceled its upcoming tour, announcing an “indefinite hiatus.”

They are still planning to play the upcoming Coachella music festival in April, but after that they are splitting up for the foreseeable future.

“Brockhampton’s upcoming appearances at London’s O2 Academy Brixton and at Coachella will be their last appearances as a group,” they said in a statement quoted by Billboard. “All other upcoming tour dates are cancelled, effective immediately.”

Their statement assured ticket holders: ‘Refunds for all tickets and VIP packages will be available at the point of purchase.’

The group, which has been in existence for over 11 years, added: ”After these remaining shows, Brockhampton as a group will be taking an indefinite hiatus. They invite their fans to join them in celebrating the end of an era at these final performances.”

Brockhampton’s latest announcement comes a month after they canceled most of their European tour dates for 2022, citing the spread of COVID-19.

Kevin Abstract, Ameer Vann, Dom McLennon and Rodney Tenor – then known as Mic Kurb – formed the original group in Texas in 2010.

Back then they were known as AliveSinceForever, but in the meantime they have switched to their current name and have gained and lost multiple members.

In early 2018, Ameer Vann was accused of sexual misconduct towards multiple women and of having sex with a minor during the #MeToo movement.

Although he denied the allegations of wrongdoing, he was removed from the group, whose statement read: “We have been lied to and we are sorry we didn’t respond sooner.”

From the original lineup, only Kevin Abstract and Dom McLennon remain in what is now Brockhampton, which also has 11 other members.

Their show at the O2 Academy Brixton is scheduled for February 7, about two months before they give their farewell performance at Coachella.

Brockhampton, whose most famous songs are Bleach, Junky, Queer and Infatuation, released their latest album last year.

Entitled Roadrunner: New Light, New Machine, the record fell in April 2021 and climbed to number 11 on the Billboard 200.
