Chromatics, whose last tour featured Desire as an opening act, announced their breakup last year. The band’s announcement was made by all the members aside from Johnny Jewel, and Jewel went unmentioned in the announcement. Jewel’s representative confirmed the breakup in a statement, which did not mention the other three members by name.
