Progressive rock band The Reasoning have announced that they are to split after 10 years together.

Rachel Cohen and her bandmates say that they are parting on amicable terms.

In a join statement issued via Facebook The Reasoning say: “We part in the knowledge that we have achieved many wonderful and great things as a band and as individuals but, the time has come to be honest and realise that as a musical group, we have explored as much as we can.

“Though we have enjoyed our journey with you immensely, we have also had occasions where it seemed so tough to carry on and as we approach the 3rd anniversary of the disappearance of our dear friend Owain, this seems like the right time to gently put the band to bed,” they add. Guitarist Owain Roberts disappeared in Cardigan, Wales almost exactly 3 years ago and has not been seen since.

Continue the band: “We want to thank all the bands, press and fans for the amazing loyalty, support and love. We have done many incredible things, been to many amazing places and played to so many amazing people. Our music lives on with you and in our hearts. This is not the last you will hear of us as musicians but I’m afraid, it is the last you will hear from us as a band. We are all parting on good terms and with firm friendships established. This is a decision we all feel is the best thing for the band and its musical legacy.

They sign off: “Be well, take care and we’ll all see you on the road sometime soon.”

UK prog rockers The Reasoning have postponed the release of their new album.

Announcing the delay of their fifth LP until 2015, the band indicated that they were doing so in order to take advantage of recording and production opportunities that had come their way.

The Reasoning’s autumn dates around the UK, titled The Great Escape Tour, will be going ahead however, with performances of the band’s debut album, Awakening, in its entirety.

Said bassist Matt Cohen: “After the whirlwind experiences of the past couple of years, we’re going to take some extra time to really develop and embellish this new piece of work, and craft it to its very richest potential.

“This is going to be a big financial investment for us – outsourcing the recording of drums and, for the first time, vocals, to some big studios. We’re also in talks with several mix engineers, both here and on the other side of the Atlantic.”

Regarding the tour, Cohen said: “”The shows will feature Awakening in its entirety and will also showcase some brand new material.”

The delay of the new album means that it’s release will coincide with the band’s 10th anniversary.

The Reasoning will play:

24th of Oct: Talking Heads, Southampton
25th of Oct: Venue 2, London
30th of Oct: The Duchess, York
31st of Oct: Railway, Bolton
1st of Nov: CF10, Cardiff
2nd of Nov: Robin 1, Bilston
