End of the road for Harwich X Factor star's band
10:00am Monday 7th October 2013 in News
AN X Factor star has split up from his band just weeks after their debut EP was released worldwide.
Greg West, formerly of District 3, along with bandmates Michael Parsons and Dan Ferrari-Lane have decided to part ways to concentrate on solo projects.
In a joint statement with his pals who he has known since they attended Sylvia Young Theatre School in London together, Greg thanked their fans, nicknamed 3eeks, who had supported the boys since before their time on X Factor.
“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's harder to tell you that we have decided to bring our time as 'District 3' to an end.”
