The Verve finally call it a day?

Nick McCabe has said the reunited band is on "permanent vacation"...

According to McCabe, The Verve have once again split up. In a post on his MySpace page, the guitarist says, "The Verve seems to be on holiday and shows no sign of not being on holiday. I've been hesitant to breach Official Secrets-style policy with any missives from the, well, from any front, basically. Don't ask me anything about the big V."

McCabe and bassist Simon Jones have already started a new band, The Black Ships, while a story in The Mirror states that, "as far as Nick and Simon are concerned The Verve no longer exists. They think Richard was just using the reunion as a vehicle to get his solo career on track."
