Scissor Sisters have announced they are taking an indefinite hiatus from music.

The ‘I Don’t Feel Like Dancing’ group performed their last UK gig at Camden’s Roundhouse in London last night (24 October), and said they have no plans to work together again.

Putting on an extended gig as a thank you to the fans, gay lead singer Jake Shears shocked the crowd by saying: ‘This will be the last time we will play in London for quite some time.’

The group played a selection of their biggest hits at the gig, including ‘Take Your Mama’, ‘Fire With Fire’, and ‘Filthy/Gorgeous’.

Following the show, band members confirmed to Gigwise there were no plans for the band to return to the studio to record a follow-up to their 2012 album Magic Hour.

Gay guitarist Del Marquis revealed he has solo work in the pipe line, and Ana Matronic is close to completing work on a comic book project.

However, Matronic said it would not necessarily be the end of Scissor Sisters.

‘Don’t you worry – this isn’t the last you’ve heard of us,’ she said.

Scissor Sisters have sold over three million albums worldwide, have worked with Elton John and Kylie Minogue and their first debut record is consistently listed as one of the best records of all time.
