When Grammy-winning folk duo the Civil Wars made the announcement that their fall 2012 tour was canceled, music fans around the world were devastated. In fact, it looked like the band was going to break up for good, despite the fact that they teased new music in 2013. But now, Joy Williams and John Paul White have made an great news to share about their upcoming summer album.

According to Paste Magazine, the popular duo will be back late this 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 tour together again, new music should help satisfy 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. 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…"

A somewhat encrypted message, but the promise of new music is all we need! In a recent press release, more details were promised, and we'll keep you posted.

The Civil Wars, who received a Grammy Award for Best Country Duo/Group Performance in 2012, and won again 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!
