You Say Party have announced that they have parted ways as a band.

Originally named You Say Party! We Say Die!, the Canadian band have issued a statement on their decision to split. Stephen O' Shea, the band's bassist has said: "Becky, Derek and I are announcing the immediate cease to activity as You Say Party. Call it a hiatus. Call it a break. Call it whatever you want. It's been a hard year for us. Not a bad year. We've experienced wonderful support from people. But you've got to listen to your body and your mind when it begins to revolt against what you think it is you have to do."

The band changed their name last year after the death of their drummer Devon Clifford, last year.
