Chairlift Announce Their Final Shows

Chairlift released their third album, Moth, last January via Columbia. Back in December singer Caroline Polachek and multi-instrumentalist/producer Patrick Wimberly announced that it’ll be their last; that they are breaking up. Now the duo has announced their final shows, which will go down in April. The dates are below, followed by a selection of their videos.

There doesn’t appear to be any bad blood between them, Wimberly wants to focus on producing other people and Polachek will concentrate on her solo career. In 2014 Polachek released Arcadia, a very good solo album as Ramona Lisa.

Chairlift was started in 2005 by Polachek and Aaron Pfenning, with Wimberly joining in time for their 2008 debut album, Does You Inspire You. Pfenning left the band in 2010 and both 2012’s excellent sophomore album, Something, and Moth were recorded as a duo. Polachek and Wimberly hope to work together again, writing: “The two of us are family at this point, and will undoubtedly turn up on each other’s work in the future, but the time has come to take the next step towards where our passion is pulling us.”

Moth made it on Under the Radar’s Top 100 Albums of 2016 list. Read our interview with Chairlift on Moth. Also read our 2014 print article on Polachek’s Ramona Lisa album as well as our 2014 bonus website interview with her.
