– The Band Perry and Big Machine Label Group announced Tuesday they are splitting.
TBP, who were on the Republic Nashville label of Big Machine, said on Facebook, "We and Big Machine Label Group have made a mutual decision to bring our working relationship to a close. We are grateful for 6 years of the big moments and great strides we made with our BMLG family and will carry that foundation forward with us as we begin the next leg of our journey."
When someone asked on Facebook whether that meant "no new album," TBP responded, "Oh there def will be!"
There was no further information about the timing of a new disc or how it would be released.
The Band Perry is comprised of Kimberly Perry and her brothers Neil and Reid. They released an EP in 2010 followed by a full length later that year. "Pioneer" came out in 2013. A third disc, "Heart + Beat" was slated for the first quarter of this year.
TBP has enjoyed number one hits with "If I Die Young," "All Your Life," Better Dig Two" and "Done." Other hits included "You Lie," "Postcards From Paris" and "Don't Let Me Be Lonely."
"Gentle On My Mind," a song on the "Glen Campbell: I'll Be Me" soundtrack of the documentary about the singer, earned the group a Grammy in 2015 for Best Country Duo/Group performance.
The trio released the single "Live Forever," a highly produced pop song on Aug. 14, 2015 as the lead single for "Heart + Beat." The song only reached 29 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.
