Music fans all over the world were devastated when Grammy-winning folk duo the Civil Wars surprisingly suddenly canceled their tour last autumn. In fact, it seemed that the band was possibly over for good, although they hinted at new music in 2013. As of today, Joy Williams and John Paul White have made an exciting announcement about their upcoming summer album.

According to Paste, the popular duo will return late summer with a self-titled album as a follow-up to their Gold certified record ‘Barton Hollow.’ While many are wondering if White and Williams will ever hit the road together, new music will satiate the demands of their fans — at least for the time being.

The Civil Wars both put a note up on their website, promising a sophomore album and expressing their gratitude toward their fans for patience and support.

White writes, “Patience is a virtue. Yours has been appreciated. Here’s to the hope you consider it rewarded. Williams says, “If you are reading this, I want to thank you for taking the time. I’m grateful for your patient support. I am very glad to say that new music is coming and I am fiercely proud of this album. A lot of soul, sweat and tears went into its creation. I hope you find the heart in each song, that it might connect with yours. We are, each one of us, all journeying, learning and growing along this ever-evolving path. Hope this note finds you well wherever you are…”

The band, who received a Grammy for Best Country Duo/Group Performance at the 2012 Grammys, and also took home some hardware this year for their collaboration on ‘The Hunger Games’ soundtrack with superstar Taylor Swift, is an incredible talent and an undeniable stage presence. Here’s to their continued success!
