Girlpool announced via Instagram that they’re breaking up. The Los Angeles-based duo of Avery Tucker and Harmony Tividad appear to have split amicably, adding “we are each other’s biggest fans and always encourage each other to stretch and evolve, whether that means it’s alongside one another or not.”
With the news, comes a number of show cancellations. The band’s September 23rd show at Philly’s Underground Arts, however, is still happening. “This upcoming tour will be our last one – it will be an ode to the past, a celebration for the future, and something we will pour both our hearts into completely.”
This year marks 8 years as a band for Girlpool, whose blunt poetic lyrics and offbeat harmonies – a breakthrough characteristic of the popular duo –remained constant through their many evolutions. Their latest album Forgiveness references accepting life’s changes as inevitable, albeit not powerlessly.
Tickets for Girlpool’s Farewell Show at Underground Arts are available at the WXPN Concerts and Events page.
