Civil Wars in civil war? Tour dates cancelled amid 'irreconcilable differences'


Grammy-winning folk-pop duo The Civil Wars are calling off their upcoming tour dates, citing irreconcilable differences.

Joy Williams and John Paul White released a statement announcing that they could not continue touring because of "internal discord and irreconcilable differences of ambition".

They added that they hoped to have new music in 2013.

Williams and White are both married, but to other people. Williams had a baby this summer with husband Nate Yetton, the duo's manager.
