The `Decode` hitmakers have enjoyed a hugely successful 2010 with a world tour and singing at numerous award shows, but they have decided to retire from the spotlight next year to concentrate on their music.
Guitarist Taylor York said: "The year has kind of been topped. We don`t have much more for the rest of this year. We`re going on a tour in South America and then we`re taking time off and we`re writing for a new record."
While they are keen to create new music, Taylor admits it`s difficult to move on from their album `Brand New Eyes` because it`s been so successful.
He told MTV News: "We`re kind of at the end of this record but it`s bittersweet."
Lead singer Hayley Williams says the group are thrilled with the success they`ve had over the past 12 months but couldn`t pick a highlight.
She said: "There`s been so many big ones. We got to play the VMAs, we went on the biggest US tour we`ve done to date, played two shows at the O2 arena in London. It`s just been like, one thing after another. It`s like a high climb, and I hope we get to keep climbing for a little bit longer."
