The Civil Warsâ€™ highly anticipated sophomore self-titled album will be released August 6 on Sensibility Music/Columbia Records. This is the follow up to the three-time Grammy Award-winning duoâ€™s acclaimed debut, Barton Hollow, which is now certified RIAA Gold in the U.S.

The duo is still on ‘hiatus’, which was announced last year due to irreconcilable differences. Joy Williams told the Associated Press “John Paul and I aren’t speaking right now but to me that doesn’t determine the outcome of the band because if we’re not speaking we can’t determine the outcome of the band at this moment, so the other elephant in the room is what’s happening with the band? The reality is I’m not even quite sure.” John Paul refused to comment.
