Yesterday’s news that beloved Danish indie band EFTERKLANG parted ways caused a lot of sadness under fans and music lovers, also here at NOTHING BUT HOPE AND PASSION. Today the band reports back to clear up a certain misunderstanding. Not entirely surprising – as we already noticed yesterday the band did not specifically write about a “split” or that they won’t make any music together. It just seems to be the end of EFTERKLANG as we all used to know them.

In a new statement the band says: “Many people misunderstood our announcement yesterday. We are not splitting up. We are saying goodbye to Efterklang in its current form and to the idea of what Efterklang is. But our concert February 26th is not a funeral.” The band furthermore says that they were quite touched by the reaction of the fans. It just looks like they are somehow exhausted after the long touring for their last album Piramida. Something they already adressed in last year’s interview with NOTHING BUT HOPE AND PASSION. We’ll see what the future brings for EFTERKLANG and its members.
