The Knife have announced that their upcoming set of shows for the Shaking The Habitual Show Tour will be their last, which was confirmed by Pitchfork.
From the band:
In the autumn we will round up the Shaking The Habitual Show Tour with a number of European dates. After the touring last year we reworked the show during the winter. The performers, previously known as dancers, learnt how to sing and play instruments, the stage got three levels, Shannon Funchess joined us and the show became more fun and shiny. We performed it in the US in the spring and now we would love you to join us in our dance for some last shaking moves.
“A handfull elf pee
That’s my soul
Spray it allover
Fill the bowl
An axe to grind
Generous actions with the speed of light
Without you my life would be boring”
See you on the dance floor…
/Olof and Karin, The Knife
