Much beloved Winnipeg band the Weakerthans have apparently decided to call it a day.

The group has been pretty quiet as of late — their most recent studio album, the Polaris-nominated Reunion Tour, was released way back in 2007 — and on Tuesday, drummer Jason Tait tweeted the band is “done.”

The song referenced is the 1957 recording of Abide With Me, by John Coltrane and the Thelonious Monk septet.

Last year, in an interview with the Free Press, band member Stephen Carroll had expressed similar sentiments, saying “We’re not active and there’s no foreseeable activity planned.”

Weakerthans singer John K. Samson was contacted for comment but did not immediately respond.
