The Knife Break Up

By Tom Breihan / August 21, 2014 - 12:21 pm

The relentlessly fascinating Swedish electro duo the Knife have spent the past 15 years playing with ideas of image, advancing radical agendas, and recording amazing tracks. They have four studio albums, one opera, and more than a few brain-bending live shows to their existence. And when they get done their current round of touring, they will cease to exist.

In a new interview with Dazed & Confused, Karin Dreijer says, “When we finish the tour now in November we will close down, it’s our last tour. We don’t have any obligations to continue, it should only and always be for fun.” Reps for the group confirm that the Knife will “officially be no more” after this tour.

Here are the group’s final tour dates and a short promo for them:

10/31 Stockholm, Sweden @ Annexet
11/01 Gothenburg, Sweden @ Film Studios
11/03 Berlin, Germany @ Arena
11/05 Manchester, UK @ Academy
11/06 London, UK @ Brixton Academy
11/08 Reykjavik, Iceland @ Iceland Airwaves Festival
