Klaxons likely breaking up after nine years
After nine years, English indie and new rave stars Klaxons are probably breaking up. As seen on Stoney Roads, the band Tweeted yesterday that “the upcoming dates will be [their] last headline tour.”
Klaxons burst onto the scene in 2006 with hit singles including “Gravity’s Rainbow” and “Atlantis to Interzone.” 2007 was even bigger for the band, who released singles “Golden Skans,” “It’s Not Over Yet,” and “As Above, So Below” as well as their debut album, Myths of the Near Future. Klaxons won a Mercury Prize, multiple NME Awards, an MTV Europe Music Award, and more. Remixes of their tracks by dance music titans like Soulwax, Erol Alkan, Surkin, Todd Edwards, Simian Mobile Disco, and Van She have proven to be some of the most influential songs of the mid-2000s.
