It seems only fitting that a musical duo currently in such a tempestuous state would perform under a name with such violent context, but “The Civil Wars” have enraptured listeners across the globe regardless. Musicians Joy Williams and John Paul White recently struck gold with their sophomore self-titled release, selling 116,000 copies in their first week and claiming the number one spot on the Billboard charts. The folk/soft rock album has buried competition such as Now 47, Robin Thicke, and Jay Z, despite not being backed by any heavy promotion or touring. The lack of promotion is due to the fact that The Civil Wars parted ways months before the album’s completion, making the extensive success bittersweet. Though the band has not officially broken up, they canceled a European tour and elected to take an indefinite hiatus as a result of “internal discord and irreconcilable differences of ambition”. In other words, Williams and White no longer share the same vision and have not spoken in months.
