Taking to social media, the American synthpop duo have revealed plans to call it quits next year, following one final tour. After that, singer Caroline Polachek will be branching out as a solo artist and Patrick Wimberly will go on to produce records full time.
“Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all the love and support you’ve given us, for bringing us all over the world, for waiting to meet us after shows, for learning the dance moves and for singing loudly,” the pair’s statement reads.
It’s not known whether or not their final tour dates will include Australia, or whether Aussie fans have just had their last chance to see the pair live. We’ll keep you posted with any more info as it develops.
Chairlift was founded by Polachek back in 2005, with Wimberly joining the group before the release of their debut full-length Does You Inspire You in 2008. Their last LP was 2016’s Moth.
