We’ve really enjoyed the music of Americana act The Civil Wars, a Nashville-based duo who offered an inventive spin on the Nashville-meets-Woodstock sound, so we’re saddened to read that the band has canceled all of their upcoming tour dates due to “internal discord and irreconcilable differences of ambition.”
Here’s the full statement from the band…
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.
We are a bit relieved to read the bit about having “new music for you in 2013,” but cancelling all your tour dates after your band has finally achieved a high level of critical and commercial success is not a good sign of the duo’s stability. In an unprecedented move, Joy and John Paul have committed to reimbursing non-refundable ticketing charges and more…
PS – We understand that there are many of you stuck with service charges and travel reservations due to our abrupt cancelations. 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.
Let’s hope absence makes the heart grow fonder and the pair resolve their differences.
