The Knife have announced that they'll be calling time on proceedings after their upcoming European tour. A post on their website yesterday stated, "We are doing out last tour!", before Dazed and Pitchfork confirmed that this would be their final activity as a band and they would be splitting up afterwards. Speaking to Dazed, the band's Karin Dreijer said: "When we finish the tour now in November we will close down, it's our last tour. We don't have any obligations to continue, it should only and always be for fun."
