One of Australia’s biggest boy bands, In Stereo are no more.
Chris Lanzon and Jakob Delgado announced that the band is breaking up with posts on their group and individual Instagram accounts today.
“To all our wonderful supporters and friends, Thank you for being here all this time, instereo is something we’re very proud of. After giving it a lot of thought, we’ve come to a decision which was not easy for us to make, but we feel it’s the right one. Today we’re closing the “instereo” chaper of our lives,” they wrote on the group post.
“We feel the time has come for the two of us to move in our own individual directions. We are still very good mates and this decision is wholly based on each of us wanting to pursue different things.”
Each of the boys posted their own thank you messages on their accounts and gave fans an indication of what the future holds for them.
“I have an exciting vision for what the future holds. It may take some time, but I can’t wait to share it with you,” Lanzon said.
Delgado posted a photo of himself.
“I have been working on my own music for some time now and have fallen deeply in love with it, I am hoping that when I release this music to the world, that you will also fall in love with it,” he said.
In Stereo were a three piece band until Ethan Karpathy announced his departure last December. Chris and Jakob released their first and what is now their only single as a duo Cruel in January.
The last time they posted on their group account was in February. The boys have been very quiet and inactive since then, leaving fans guessing what might be happening. The fandom, known as ‘Stereonators,’ had different opinions. Some had the feeling that they were splitting while others thought that they may be taking a break to concentrate on school as they are in Year 12.
Now that the split has been announced, there are a lot of heartbroken fans but, as Chris and Jakob said, “this is not the end, it’s a new beginning!”
These boys have bright futures and their loving fans will continue to support them and follow their journeys always.
