Volcano Choir Adds Dates, Bon Iver Are Not Breaking Up

Volcano Choir, the collaborative project featuring Bon Iver’s Justin Vernon and Collections of Colonies of Bees, have confirmed a series of new dates. The band’s latest round of dates includes stops on the three-date Australian Harvest Festival in November as well as a North American West Coast tour in January. All dates, including a new stop in Justin Vernon’s home town of Eau Claire, are listed below. Volcano Choir will also make their TV debut on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday, September 10. The group is touring support of their new album Repave.

When asked about the future of his Bon Iver project, Vernon recently “told Triple J,”: “I don’t really write songs anymore. The last Bon Iver record was a very ‘sitting down with a guitar and writing’ kind of record. I really have to be in a specific headspace to even begin to illuminate an idea that would create another Bon Iver record, and I’m just not there. I’m really honored that Bon Iver gives me a platform to do whatever I want, but there’s only so much time you can spend digging through yourself before you become insular. I’m not in a hurry to go back to that temperature. All of the music I’ve been making shifting away from Bon Iver feels really good … so if I ever do go back to Bon Iver it will be all the better for it.”

Consequence of Sound followed up with Bon Iver’s label, who explained, “Bon Iver is not over by any means. Justin isn’t currently writing Bon Iver songs, but that doesn’t mean he won’t write them in the future. Bon Iver is off-cycle, and that is not new news. Right now Justin’s concentration is on preparing for the Volcano Choir tour, the first date being in Chicago on Friday.”

Vernon will also contribute to a Grateful Dead tribute project organized by members of The National.
