More rumors

Hold back on cuing "History" for the moment; though news of a breakup has spread like wildfire, no one has officially confirmed it yet.

A simple Google search uncovered further reports (about 20) here, all quoting MySpace or the Mirror yet again. In addition, Pitchfork's report here, Guardian's here, and Audio Scribbler's report here.

If The Verve have indeed split again, this will be their third. The band split up initially in 1996 and then again in 1999, but reformed in 2007, releasing an album 'Forth' and headlining the Glastonbury Festival the following year.

V Festival curse anyone? Ironically, the band's last UK show the last time they split was the 1998 V Festival.
