LOS ANGELES - Rock band R.E.M. said they had decided to "call it a day" after more than 30 years of making music together in a posting on Wednesday on the group's official website.

"To our Fans and Friends: As R.E.M., and as lifelong friends and co-conspirators, we have decided to call it a day as a band.

"We walk away with a great sense of gratitude, of finality, and of astonishment at all we have accomplished. To anyone who ever felt touched by our music, our deepest thanks for listening," the statement said.

R.E.M , made up of singer Michael Stipe, guitarist Peter Buck, bass player Mike Mills and drummer Bill Berry, have released 15 albums since forming in 1980. Their most recent "Collapse into Now" was released earlier this year.
