The band confirmed that they have ended their 10-year career and will now part ways to concentrate on their own individual projects.
Announcing the news on Twitter, Rob Swire upgraded his bio to read: "There will be no further Pendulum live shows. There are no current plans for a new album in 2013."
Swire, who is currently touring with his side-project Knife Party, was the group's main songwriter and multi-instrumentalist.
However, the star recently confirmed that his main priority is now Knife Party as he is having fun with the act.
He told Australian radio station Triple J (via NME): "The Knife Party thing is going so well we don't really feel like going back to junior school anytime soon.
"We're having too much fun with this project. It's also great because Pendulum towards the end sort of felt like we were doing it because we had to and that's never a fun way to do music.
"Whereas Knife Party is pretty much solely us doing what we want to and if no-one likes it we don't care."
Meanwhile, fellow Pendulum band members Paul Harding and Ben Mount are continuing to book DJ sets under the group's guise.
