Pavement's Stephen Malkmus has admitted that the seminal US rockers are currently "resting in peace" as he launches a solo career.
Malkmus, who returns to guitar world with his self-titled debut album in February, has attempted to put the record straight about Pavement, who have agreed to split for the foreseeable future.
Speaking to Billboard in the US, Malkmus explained: "It's over, as far as we know. It could pick-up steam in a few years or a few decades, but I don't know. I promise I won't bring it back for at least five years. Or 10."
According to the band's official website, any confirmation of the Pavement split - rumours of which began on the band's UK tour earlier this year - is inconclusive. The site states: "Pavementtherockband.com will be offline until further notice".
Malkmus's solo album was recorded in Portland, with drummer John Moen and bass player Joanna Bolme. A spokesman for Malkmus today confirmed that he will play solo shows in the UK next year.
