The Civil Wars Cancel Tour

The Civil Wars have announced that they have cancelled all of their upcoming shows. Joy Williams and John Paul White issued a statement via Facebook that addresses the situation.

Their note reads:

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.

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 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.

For a look back at the pair in less volatile times, watch this Live at Relix performance of “20 Years.”
