The Knife announce plans to split

The band will come to an end following their November tour dates

The Knife have announced plans to split up following their autumn European tour dates.

The Swedish duo, who will play two UK shows in November, told Dazed & Confused that after their autumn dates, they will call it quits. “When we finish the tour now in November, we will close down, it’s our last tour,” said Karin Dreijer Andersson. “We don’t have any obligations to continue, it should only and always be for fun.”

The Swedish duo will perform in Manchester and London as part of their 2014 Shaken Up Show tour. They will appear at Manchester Academy on November 5, followed by a show at the O2 Academy Brixton the following night.

The duo released their fourth album ‘Shaking The Habitual’ in 2013. It followed their self-titled 2001 debut, 2003’s ‘Deep Cuts’ and 2006’s ‘Silent Shout’. The band is made up of Karin Dreijer Andersson and her brother Olof Dreijer.

When asked if she had plans to work again under the Fever Ray name following the end of The Knife, Dreijer Andersson responded, “When we finish The Knifeā€™s last run in mid-November, I will start thinking about what is to come next!”
