Dead Can Dance Split

By shane

We've been waiting for the past week to hear some sort of official confirmation (which still hasn't been announced,) but it's now becoming painfully obvious that DEAD CAN DANCE have split up. The band had all but completed their next album, European tour dates had gone on sale and an American tour had been announced -- when suddenly the tour was abruptly cancelled. Many of the European gig promoters were told it was due to the band splitting. However, nothing has appeared as of yet on 4AD's official website. If the band has indeed split, this could spell trouble for the plagued 4AD label, who have now lost both Dead Can Dance AND Lush (the label's two largest sellers) to splits within the past two years.
