Lee Ranaldo says Sonic Youth will be ‘ending for a while’

Guitarist Lee Ranaldo says that Sonic Youth will be ‘ending for a while’, sparking speculation that the band might call it quits altogether following the recent separation of co-founders Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon.

Speaking to Rolling Stone magazine, Ranaldo admitted that the band’s plans beyond the end of their November tour are unknown, and that there’s unlikely to be any new material recorded for a while. He also said that while there are plenty of archival projects on the go, he’s happy to let the future take its course.

Sonic Youth’s most recent album, The Eternal, was released in 2009 and Ranaldo is now working on a solo release. The band’s label Matador has made no comment about the future of Sonic Youth, but it looks like there could be at least a cooling off period while the band-members decide what to do next.
