US band go their separate ways
Vivian Girls have announced their decision to split-up after seven years together.
The US trio, Cassie Ramone, Ali Koehler and Katy Goodman, formed in 2007 and released three albums. The band’s last album, ‘Share The Joy’, came in 2011 with the individual members choosing to focus on solo projects in recent years.
Announcing the decision on Facebook, a statement from the band reads: “Brooklyn, New York, March 2007: we started making music together and became what we know as Vivian Girls. It’s been a long and crazy journey in the seven years since, and we feel as though the time has finally come to let our band rest in peace. It’s been an experience that we’ll look back on and cherish and we’d like to thank you for sharing it with us. We have had such an amazing time being a band, touring the world, releasing records and meeting all of you.”
The statement continues: “Thank you to everyone who has helped us along the way, everyone who has come to our shows, bought our records and supported us, and everyone we will meet in the future.”
Vivian Girls will play two final shows before going their separate ways, and will perform in Los Angeles on February 14 and New York on March 1.
