The Civil Wars have announced that they have canceled all of their upcoming tour dates due to ‘internal discord and irreconcilable differences of ambition’ — seemingly spelling the end of the band! Read on for more details and their full statement.

It seems that the rising fame of The Civil Wars may have been too much for band members Joy Williams and John Paul White. The two have just announced a cancelation of all of their tour dates in a statement on their official Facebook page that leaves the future of the country duo uncertain!

It sounds like there was some serious fighting going on between the two, as the full statement 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.”

Joy and John add a postscript to their message, assuring fans that they hope to help them financially for any non-refundable money that may be lost due to the cancelation. “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 info@thecivilwars.com 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.”

While the reasons cited for the cancelation seem to point to a break-up, the mention of new music in 2013 is puzzling. As it stands, the future of The Civil Wars remains to be seen.

Are you shocked by the band’s statement, HollywoodLifers?

We saw the Civil Wars a couple of times last winter and were seriously blown away. We had bought tickets to a show of their’s scheduled for Miami in January to be followed by a cruise they were also booked on. Now we are just sad. I have been extolling their virtues to anyone who would listen for months now and am crushed that we may not get the chance to see them perform again.

I have followed Joy’s career for years and always loved her, was blown away at her musical pairing with John Paul, I unfortunately never saw them perform live, I imagine a newborn might have something to do with it. Possibly maybe later on down the line there can be a return or at least a studio album.
