Justin Vernon Hints At The End Of Bon Iver


Last night, Bon Iver mastermind Justin Vernon was interviewed on Minnesota Public Radio station 89.3 The Current’s Local Show. During the course of conversation, Vernon had the following say concerning Bon Iver’s future:

“Winding it down. I look at it like a faucet. I have to turn it off and walk away from it because so much of how that music comes together is subconscious or discovering. There’s so much attention on the band, it can be distracting at times. I really feel the need to walk away from it while I still care about it. And then if I come back to it – if at all – I’ll feel better about it and be renewed or something to do that.”

To soften the blow of a potential end to Bon Iver, check out the band’s 9/21 performance at New York’s Radio City Music Hall. The video is only available until 9AM on 9/26, so check it out while you can.

    Damn. Well, I hope there’s more Volcano Choir to come at least. I’ll be paying plenty of attention to whatever Vernon and Carey do regardless.

    He said kind of the same thing a couple of years back. This band will never die.

    He’s preserving the sanctity of it as best as he can.
