Wolf Parade’s Dan Boeckner and his wife Alexei Perry have ended their musical collaboration Handsome Furs. The band writes on their Facebook, “With a heavy heart the time has come to let all of you know that Handsome Furs are no more.”

The statement continues, “The most important thing that needs to be said right now is how extremely grateful we are to all the fans all over the world that showered us with love and support over the years. Thank you for everything! It’s been an incredible 6 years and we owe it all to you.”

During their six-year existence, Handsome Furs released three studio albums, including Face Control in 2009 and Sound Kapital in 2011. Below, watch their video for “What About Us”.
