According to The Vine (via Pitchfork), the quartet finished its set at the Meredith Music Festival in Australia on Sunday with Cave declaring, "That's it for Grinderman. It's over." The frontman added, "See you all in another 10 years, when we'll be even older and uglier."
Formed in 2006 as a side project to Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Grinderman released a pair of well-received albums, 2007's "Grinderman" and 2010's "Grinderman 2," on Anti- Records. The albums have sold a combined 88,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
A rep for Grinderman was not available at press time.
