Historically, no one has known what the fuck to do with British outfit the Klaxons
. Are they pioneers of new rave? Or is it acid-rave? How about sci-fi- punk-funk? Psychedelic progressive pop? How about shut up and dance...
... And for 9 years, the shut up and dance method was working pretty well for the boys, who are currently touring in support of their fourth — and possibly final — album Love Frequency
. With no further explanation the group announced via Twitter that their currently scheduled tour dates will be their last as a band.
A few hours later they followed up their abrupt and unexplained announcement by confirming more international tour dates...
No one from the band's team has confirmed or denied the band's official break-up, but it seems as though the boys are calling it quits on the live performance front. The psuedo split announcement has generated a rush of fans calling for the Klaxons to "Show Me A Miracle," and say "It's Not Over Yet" (#punintended #sorryi'mnotsorry). The band has had an impressive run either way. They won the Mercury Prize in 2007 for their debut album Myths of the Near Future
, and their most recent effort includes collaborations with LCD Soundsystem
's James Murphy
and The Chemical Brothers
While we wait for the official word, it may not be a terrible idea to put some hopeful Klaxon clicks out there
Because, "There Is No Other Time."
So, "Show Me A Miracle,"
and tell me "It's Not Over Yet."
It's almost as if their whole career was building to this very moment.
DISCLAIMER: There is absolutely zero evidence to support that Kiera Knightly, who is an absolute treasure and the wife of Klaxons keyboardist James Righton, has Yoko'd the Klaxons. That said, there is absolutely zero evidence to support that she hasn't. #Justsayin
