Pakistani band Strings left many hearts broken when they announced their split on Thursday.

“We have decided that today is the day we graciously get to conclude STRINGS,” the band said on Instagram.

Strings was founded by four college students, Bilal Maqsood, Faisal Kapadia, Rafiq Wazir Ali, and Kareem Bashir Bhoy, in 1988, and inspired a number of young Pakistani as well as Indian artists.

Celebrities were quick to respond to the news, with many singers sharing how the band shaped their own music.

Singer Farhan Saeed said there was nothing more difficult than to hear about the band’s split.
