BY Calum SlingerlandPublished Mar 4, 2016

After two full-length records and two EPs, Montreal duo Majical Cloudz have announced they are calling it quits to pursue other musical endeavours.

"Over the last few months Matt and I decided that Are You Alone? would be the last Majical Cloudz record, and that after doing some touring we would be moving on to other projects and adventures," vocalist Devon Welsh wrote in a Facebook post.

"The band was an opportunity for us to grow into the kinds of people and the kinds of artists we wanted to become. We both feel it to be the completion of something very positive," he continued. "So thank you very much to everyone who has taken interest in the project, listened to the music, bought the records, come to the shows, etc, to everyone who believed in us, gave us a chance, worked with us!"

Additionally, Welsh took the time to shed some light on future musical projects from both himself and Otto. "I will be releasing music and playing shows under my own name, Devon Welsh," he revealed.

"Matt will be making music under his new project, The Dahlia, which he'll be sharing with the world soon enough. At the moment, he's composing a film soundtrack and producing a couple of records which you'll be hearing about in the next few months!"

The duo will play one final show as Majical Cloudz in their native Montreal at La Sala Rossa on March 11, opting to forego an opening act in favour of playing a longer set.
