The Civil Wars Bite the Dust

Posted on the 09 November 2012 by Notlobmusic @notlobmusic
The news, broke at last night's Mike and Ruthy concert at the Loring-Greenough Hosue in JP, today has been confirmed by Rolling Stone, the Americana pop duo "The Civil Wars" have indeed broken up.
The philosophical and practical Ruthy quipped "maybe if they had named themselves "Longevity" they would still be together."
American pop music cheerleaders NPR music and local AAA pop purveyor WUMB hyped "The Civil Wars" beyond reason. Personally I was never a fan, but wish them well.
