News: Silver Jews split up

Silver Jews have split up.

Front man and songwriter Dave Berman confirmed the news on the Silver Jews forum at Drag City earlier today.

Last year in an interview with musicOMH, Berman gave notice: "After this I will stop and try to work out where I want to put my energy next and I don't know if it will be writing songs."

He went on: "For the first time I can say that I could walk away from music because this album is an answer to the problems posed by the others I've written. Plus you always want to go out on a good note and I don't want to be like Pearl Jam, taking up space where other younger bands could come through."

The band's sixth album Lookout Mountain, Lookout Sea made musicOMH's Top 50 Albums of 2008 list, as voted on by our writers.
