    No marriage is safe, it seems.

    Sonic Youth co-founders Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon have separated after 27 years of marriage, which will affect their future tour plans. Matador, the band's label, issued a statement saying that the noise rock icons would proceed as planned with a South American tour in November, but all plans beyond that are undetermined and uncertain. The statement read: "Plans beyond that (November) tour are uncertain. The couple has requested respect for their personal privacy and does not wish to issue further comment."

    Moore and Gordon married in 1984. They have one daughter, Coco, who is 17.

    We hope the end of the marriage doesn't mean the end of the band.
