Thurston Moore And Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth Announce Split

The indie rock power couple have separated after 27 years of marriage, their label confirmed. The rock couple released a statement yesterday (October 14) through their label Matador Records revealing that they were separating after 27 years of marriage.

"Sonic Youth, with both Kim and Thurston involved, will proceed with its South American tour dates in November," their rep said in a statement. Moore and Gordon met upon the former moving to New York in 1976 and went on to form Sonic Youth with LEE RANALDO and then-drummer Richard Edson the following year.

Moore and Gordon, who have a a 17-year-old daughter named Coco, were also one of the coolest couples in rock, and their long-lived relationship helped to show that committed matrimony and progressive artistry weren’t mutually exclusive things.

The couple has been playing music together since 1980 when they first formed Sonic Youth in New York City with guitarist Lee Ranaldo and later drummer Steve Shelley. In June, Thurston Moore told NME that the band were hoping to meet and record new material this year.
