From Facebook:

With a heavy heart the time has come to let all of you know that Handsome Furs are no more.

The most important thing that needs to be said right now is how extremely grateful we are to all the fans all over the world that showered us with love and support over the years. Thank you for everything! It's been an incredible 6 years and we owe it all to you.

xoxo

Maybe they're getting divorced or something and we'll hear more from Dan? I was always on team Dan when it came to Wolf Parade. All three of the Handsome Furs albums seemed underrated to me.

This really bums me out. I too was always a "Dan Fan" when it came to Wolf Parade, and agree that his solo stuff is awesome.

Maybe his wife's going into rehab. She looked like she was on coke when we saw them back in January.

Love the first 2 albums. The 3rd never really grabbed me as much, but they were always good fun live.

Aww. I really liked their albums, they were a lot of fun.

I am glad I got to see them live

Actually, no, don't. There already is one (http://www.coachella.com/forum/showthread.php?9995-Spencer-Krug-Appreciation-Thread).

A bit of an odd pairing, but I'm curious to hear what they've come up with.
