In a sad state of affairs, Pakistani pop-rock band, Strings’ Bilal Maqsood, and Faisal Kapadia have announced the end of their iconic music band. The news was announced just a few hours ago today on the band’s social media. Since then, thousands of people on social media are heartbroken.
The post said, Hey guys. This post is a bit different from the usual. We have decided that today, 25/03/2021, is the day we graciously get to conclude STRINGS.
The past 33 years have been incredible for both of us. It’s so rare to have the chance to be able to do things like this, and we are infinitely grateful to all of our fans for making it possible. We hope you found it worthwhile as well.
While the band technically may not be together anymore, both of us share an inseparable bond that will connect us no matter where life takes us.
The news broke our hearts! Strings is one of those bands in Pakistan that is rejoiced by huge audiences. Not only was their music enjoyed but also live the youth celebrated their performances.
The internationally acclaimed Pakistani pop-rock band also included four live band members from Karachi. The band was initially formed by four college students — Bilal Maqsood (vocals and guitars), Faisal Kapadia (vocals), Rafiq Wazir Ali (synthesizer), and Kareem Bashir Bhoy (bass guitar) — in 1988. In 1992 the quartet disbanded, only to make a comeback with Maqsood and Kapadia in 2000, says stringsonline.net
While the initial band rode the new wave of Pakistani pop music, the later lineup ushered a revival in the Pakistani music industry.

No Strings Attached anymore. The end of an era! When I'll be 50, listening to Titliyan Yadon Ki Urti Jayen will seem to be more related to Strings Union than anything. Thanks String for the best Worldcup Anthem and so many beautiful songs which are still in our playlist. ♡ pic.twitter.com/5YOYc6tTvC
