Post The X Factor

On 18 August 2013, District3 released their self-titled debut EP, consisting of seven songs. However, just seven weeks later, the band announced that they had disbanded. In a statement on their official Twitter, they said "It's impossible to express our appreciation to you in one message, but 3EEKS, all around the world, you have been more than everything we could ever have asked for. The support you have given us has been overwhelming, which only makes it harder to tell you that we have decided to bring our time as District3 to an end."
