After three albums and ten years together, electro-pop duo Chairlift are calling it quits. The announcement was made on Friday on the Brooklyn band’s Twitter page. While break ups are always tough, the good news is that Chairlift will do one more final tour this spring. Dates are expected to be announced in early 2017.
“It’s been an incredible 10 years as a band, and it blows our minds to be able [to] say that every goal we had when we started recording in 2006 has been accomplished,” the band wrote. “Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all the love and support you’ve given us, for bring us all over the world, for waiting to meet us after shows, for learning the dance moves, and for singing along loudly.”

In January of 2016, Chairlift released their final record Moth through Columbia Records. Following their disbandment, Caroline Polachek plans to continue her solo career while Patrick Wimberly plans to work as a producer.
