Bon Iver

Bon Iver main man Justin Vernon has said that he may bring the project to a close at the end of his next stint of activity, or at least put it on hiatus, to ensure it comes to an end “while I still care about it”.

Asked by US radio station The Current what plans he had for Bon Iver after the band’s current touring stint, he said: “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”.

So, you’d probably better get yourself tickets for those upcoming tour dates in November just in case.
