Handsome Furs, the project of Wolf Parade’s Dan Boeckner and his wife Alexei Perry, have decided to breakup. The group released three albums in recent years on Sub Pop. The following was posted on their Facebook:
With a heavy heart the time has come to let all of you know that Handsome Furs are no more.
The most important thing that needs to be said right now is how extremely grateful we are to all the fans all over the world that showered us with love and support over the years. Thank you for everything! It’s been an incredible 6 years and we owe it all to you.
No word on the future plans for the members or if this is any indicator about their personal relationship, but we can all hope that maybe Wolf Parade will get back to being an active band.
Plugging away since 1999, The National finally hit mainstream success with the release of their 2010 album High Violet. Of course, this entailed their first world tour, but in the new documentary Mistaken For Strangers, it’s only the backdrop for the relationship between lead singer Matt Berninger and his younger brother Tom, who had no idea that these short videos he was shooting would turn into a public document of their troubled, if still loving brotherhood.
