A message was sent out by the folk duo The Civil Wars late last night to all their fans concerning the cancellation of all their tour dates, the message which used the divorce language of “internal discord and irreconcilable differences” as the reason suggested this was temporary with the last line hoping for “new music for you in 2013”. The statement attracted over 2000 responses on their facebook page leaving fans sad and confused.
We sincerely apologize for the canceling of all of our tour dates. 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.
– Joy Williams & John Paul White.
With such a vague explanation one can only assume that there has been a call for some diplomacy in dealing with the issue, needless to say there is plenty of speculation arcoss the net today but at least their is some hope in the message.
