The band have recently released a statement on their website that they have decided to call it a day.
Jack and Meg wrote on the site:
'The White Stripes would like to announce that today, February 2nd, 2011, their band has officially ended and will make no further new recordings or perform live.
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.'
