The White Stripes Announce Their Break Up

Today one of the worlds best band’s The White Stripes decided to call an end to their 13 year career as a twosome. With their last release coming out last year ‘Under the Great White Northern Lights’ this album though was not new material and maybe that was a good thing to end on, a live album of their greatest works. With hits such as Seven Nation Army, Hardest Button to Button and Icky Thump the Stripes dominated the alternative rock scene for the last decade and their fresh sound helped to shape modern rock music in my own personal view. Apparently New Unreleased music will still be releasing through Jack’s label Third Man Records along with what I assume are his other projects such as The Racounters. So lets say farewell to one of the best bands of the last 10 years.

Read the Official Statement from the White Stripes official website below :

-“The White Stripes would like to announce that today, February 2nd, 2011,
their band has officially ended and will make no further new recordings or perform live.

The reason is not due to artistic differences or lack of wanting to continue, nor any
health issues as both Meg and Jack are feeling fine and in good health.

It is for a myriad of reasons, but mostly to preserve What is beautiful and special about
the band and have it stay that way.

Meg and Jack want to thank every one of their fans and admirers for the incredible
support they have given throughout the 13 plus years of the White Stripes’ intense and
incredible career.

Third Man Records will continue to put out unreleased live and studio recordings from
The White Stripes in their Vault Subscription record club, as well as through regular
channels.

Both Meg and Jack hope this decision isn’t met with sorrow by their fans but that it is
seen as a positive move done out of respect for the art and music that the band has
created. It is also done with the utmost respect to those fans who’ve shared in those
creations, with their feelings considered greatly.

With that in mind the band have this to say:

“The White Stripes do not belong to Meg and Jack anymore. The White Stripes belong
to you now and you can do with it whatever you want. The beauty of art and music is
that it can last forever if people want it to. Thank you for sharing this experience. Your
involvement will never be lost on us and we are truly grateful.”

Sincerely,
Meg and Jack White
The White Stripes-”
