Despite uncivil end, The Civil Wars have new disc

  • Print

NASHVILLE -- The Civil Wars are returning with a new album.

The duo announced the news on their website May 1. They posted an image of the new self-titled album's cover, along with a pair of handwritten notes from Joy Williams and John Paul White thanking fans for their patience.

The album will be released late summer by Columbia Records and is the followup to The Civil Wars' debut, Barton Hollow. That album earned the duo two of their three Grammy Awards and a rapidly growing fan base. But their future together appeared in doubt when they cancelled a European tour mid-trip, citing irreconcilable differences and internal discord.

The album cover is a column of smoke from a fire.

White writes in his note to fans: "Patience is a virtue. Yours has been appreciated."

There is no indication of whether the record will be a posthumous release or if the duo is planning on reuniting.
