Sonic Youth co-founders split up

Sonic Youth co-founders Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon have separated after 27 years of marriage and the future of the noise-rock band is uncertain, its label’s parent company said Saturday.

Sonic Youth, including indie rock pioneers Moore and Gordon, will go ahead with its South American tour in November as planned, Catherine Herrick, a spokesman for Beggars Group, the owner of the band’s Matador label, said in a statement.

The couple, “married in 1984, are announcing they have separated,” the statement said.

“Plans beyond that (November) tour are uncertain. The couple has requested respect for their personal privacy and does not wish to issue further comment.”
