The Knife announce final tour

21.08.14

The Knife will end their 'Shaking The Habitual' tour with a handful of European dates.

Following the announcement of Brixton and Manchester Academy shows, The Knife have shared a few expanded dates that include stops off in Germany, Sweden, and Iceland.

"In the autumn we will round up the 'Shaking The Habitual' Show Tour with a number of European dates," the band say in a press release, "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."

What happens after this is anyone's guess, but hopefully we won't have to wait another million years for another album. In fact, they're already contributing new material to that anti-nationlist cabaret.

UPDATE: The Knife have confirmed to Dazed Digital that this is not just their final 'Shaking' tour, but their final tour ever – they will split up after the tour: "We will close down, it’s our last tour. We don’t have any obligations to continue." In terms of future plans, Olof Dreijer says that after the tour, he will produce an album with Houwaida Hedfi. The Knife's PR has told us that the band won't be making any further statements.
