Are The Civil Wars breaking up?
Announced today on their Facebook and Twitter, the duo confirmed that they are canceling the rest of their tour dates.
“We sincerely apologize for the canceling of all of our tour dates” the duo wrote. “It is something we deeply regret. However, due to internal discord and irreconcilable differences of ambition we are unable to continue as a touring entity at this time. We thank each and every one of you for your amazing love & support. Our sincere hope is to have new music for you in 2013.”
The Civil Wars, made up of Joy Williams and John Paul White, did not disclose if the differences remain between them or between them and their label. However, they give fans hope that there will be some more music coming next year.
The duo also wants to make sure that the tour cancellation does not affect their traveling fans. “We understand that there are many of you stuck with service charges and travel reservations due to our abrupt cancellations Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if there are costs incurred that you would like to be reimbursed for, include a scan or attachment to your receipt(s) of the costs, and we will do our best to reimburse you for non-refundable charges.”
Earlier this year, the duo won two GRAMMY awards for their collaboration with Taylor Swift on the song “Safe and Sound.” In addition, The Civil Wars were nominated for CMT Awards and CMA Awards. They also received high critical acclaim for their first studio album, Barton Hollow.
