Dan Reynolds and his wife, Aja Volkman, have called for his resignation.

The Imagine Dragons lead singer announced on Twitter on Friday that, after splitting in 2018 and openly working to repair their relationship a year later, the pair have split again.

“I’m sad to say that Aja and I have separated after many beautiful years together,” Reynolds, 35, write. “Our number one priority is to be great parents to our children.”

He added: “Thank you for always supporting us with love and care for all these years.”

Reynolds and Volkman, 42, share four children together: Arrow Eve, 10, twins Gia James and Coco Rae, 5, and Valentine, 2.

The pair first married in March 2011, but musician and band frontwoman Nico Vega first announced their separation in April 2018, after what they described as “seven beautiful years together”.

“Our children will always be the most important thing in our lives, and we will continue to co-parent them with all of our love,” Reynolds tweeted amid their first separation. “I ask that you respect our privacy at this time as we work through this as a family.”

Volkman and Reynolds eventually reunited less than a year later, and Volkman shared in a January 2019 post that the couple was working on a “rebuild.”

“I know it’s been a crazy road. We’ve both killed it in so many moments,” Volkman wrote on Instagram at the time. “Last year we killed each other and now we’re rebuilding. You can be your worst self in the eye of a huge storm. You have to do it yourself.”

In cover story 2019 for Parents, Reynolds and Volkman opened up about their separation, as Reynolds called the seven months they were apart an “apocalypse.” Reynolds also opened up to PEOPLE around the same time about the steps the couple took to get back on a strong footing, including going to therapy.

“We are going through marriage counseling and putting in a lot of work to keep our family strong,” he said. “Fortunately for us, we worked through it. If it wasn’t for us, there are a lot of people before us who have solved that path and raised wonderful children together or go on to be friends, or whatever it’s a story. Complex relationships.”

“She’s only 10 years old, but she feels like a fully developed soul,” Volkman wrote. “Arrow’s lust and enthusiasm for life is intoxicating. She is the heart of this family. Everyone’s blessing, everyone’s best friend, everyone’s entertainment. She is a diamond in this world. Happy 10 my child. Lucky I have to be in this world with you. ❤️.”
