Bon Iver

EDIT: Contrary to Blogular Belief, Bon Iver is Not Going On Hiatus

Justin Vernon of Bon Iver announced on Minnesota Public Radio station, 89.3 The Current’s Local Show, that it may be time to pull the plug on the band.

According to City Pages, when asked what the band was up to these days, Vernon replied, “Winding it down. I look at it like a faucet. I have to turn it off and walk away from it because so much of how that music comes together is subconscious or discovering. There’s so much attention on the band, it can be distracting at times. I really feel the need to walk away from it while I still care about it. And then if I come back to it – if at all – I’ll feel better about it and be renewed or something to do that.”

Vernon has been on tour with Bon Iver ever since the band’s wildly successful self-titled album was released last year.

Bon Iver’s entire performance at Radio City Music Hall in NYC on September 21 is available to stream on YouTube. Watch it below, it may be the last performance Bon Iver fans get to see for a while. The video will be taken down in two days.
