After 27 years of marriage, the first couple of indie rock Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore have announced their separation. What this means for the future of Sonic Youth is unknown at this point.
The news comes via a statement from Matador Records, who wrote, "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."
