Did The Civil Wars Just Break Up?

Joy Williams and John Paul White


Blink. Blink.  I just read an ominous and disturbing post byThe Civil Wars on Facebook.  I’ll post it and see what you guys think:

via The Civil Wars Facebook Page:

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.

PS – We understand that there are many of you stuck with service charges and travel reservations due to our abrupt cancellations. Please email us at info@thecivilwars.com 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.

It’s nearly a year to the day that we saw this incredible duo at The Neptune Theater in Seattle.  This is rather shocking, actually.  Joy Williams did recently have a baby boy, but had also been posting videos of everyone in the recording studio with legendary producer Rick Rubin at Shangri La Studios in Malibu.


Wow.  Just wow.  And I’m NOT cool with this. At all.
