Reports around the internets say The White Stripes have called it a day. Consequence of Sound reports the following statement from the band's website (currently down, probably due to massive traffic:

“The reason is not due to artistic differences or lack of wanting to continue, nor any health issues as both Meg and Jack are feeling fine and in good health. It is for a myriad of reasons, but mostly to preserve what is beautiful and special about the band have it stay that way.”

Sad news for both fans of good music and marching bands. No future albums, no future tours.
