Arab Strap Over; To Inspire 'There Is An Ending After All', 'Last Romance' Headlines

The website for French music magazine Magic: Revue Pop Moderne reports that sources have confirmed Arab Strap's Malcolm Middleton and Aidan Moffat have mutually decided to split ten years after the release of their first single, "The First Big Weekend".

The duo will still release Ten Years Of Tears, an "audio rockumentary", on Oct. 23 in the UK and France. Arap Strap (while they were still Arab Strap) picked the tracks themselves and said the album contains the "requesite early demos, B-sides, rarities, previously unreleased songs, a couple of "classics" and the occasional surprise."

A 7" single will precede the album and include the 7" edit of "There Is No Ending" and a Four Tet remix of "The First Big Weekend".
