Acclaimed Swedish electro duo The Knife will “officially be no more” following their final leg of European tour dates in November.

The Knife’s Karin Dreijer explained in an interview with Dazed & Confused: “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.” According to Stereogum, reps for the group have confirmed that they are indeed calling it quits.

Over their 15-year existence, The Knife released four studio albums, including 2003’s Deep Cuts, 2006’s Silent Shout, and 2013’s Shaking the Habitual. “Heartbeats”, from Deep Cuts, was named by Consequence of Sound as the 14th greatest song of all time. The duo was also known for their elaborate live shows.

These are The Knife’s final tour dates:
