Why did the police band break up – Everybody knows The Police, I don’t mean the authorities, the band, fronted by Sting.
Message in a Bottle is probably the most popular Police song but they had many hits and a long time as a band. Starting around 1977 and operating originally to around 1984 when they disbanded and abandoned their 6th studio album.
The band kind of disbanded and infighting between Sting and Summers led to the demise ultimately. Sting and the other members were at this stage already pursuing successful side projects.
Of course the story does not end there. In 2007 the band reunited for their 30th anniversary and performed throughout that year and into 2008.
As far as I can tell, the Police are still together. Will we see new material from the? Who knows…
