The New York City historical rock band Sonic Youth, may be going through some bigchanges. Founding members, Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon, who have been married for 27 years are ending their relationship!
After 27 years of marriage and playing in Sonic Youth together since 1981, Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon have decided to separate. The Sonic Youth couple have been married since 1984 and also have a daughter, Coco, who is now 17 years old.
So what’s the future for Sonic Youth? And didn’t I read something months back about possible new material from the band? Guess we will all have to wait and see.
According to the bands record label Matador Records released this statement, “Sonic Youth, with both Kim and Thurston involved, will proceed with its South American tour dates in November. Plans beyond that tour are uncertain. The couple has requested respect for their personal privacy and does not wish to issue further comment.”
This means the last show Sonic Youth may play will be in Sao Paulo, Brazil at the SWU Music and Arts Festival. The show is scheduled for November 14th.
