The Knife break up: “We will close down, it’s our last tour”

Swedish art-electronic duo the Knife will break up after its current world tour, Karin Dreijer told Dazed & Confused in an interview.

“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,” Dreijer said in the act’s final interview.

The current tour, which stopped at Denver’s Fillmore Auditorium on April 21, wraps up on Nov. 8 at the Iceland Airwaves Festival.

From our review of the Knife’s Fillmore show:

“Those expecting to see a traditional electronic, pop, or rock show instead were given something closer to an aggregated art show — more fitting in a museum than the Fillmore.”

The group formed in 1999 and has released four groundbreaking electronic albums throughout the last 15 years. In 2013 the Knife released “Shaking the Habitual,” the experimental album that landed on a number of critic’s year end lists.

The Knife tour dates:

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
