    TBD. That's the fate of Sonic Youth and the band's future.

    The band's status has remained in question since members Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore announced their split after 27 years of marriage and rocking. Now, guitarist Lee Ranaldo is talking about the band's future.

    When Gordon and Moore announced it was over in October, fans worried that the band could split up. Even their label Matador Records admitted they were "uncertain" of what was next. That makes us wonder if the split wasn't an amicable one.

    Ranaldo was honest but vague, admitting to Spinner, "It's up in the air. We're taking a much-needed break and leaving it at that. We're not saying anything final, but we're not discussing anything for the future either. We're just letting it be."

    He is not fretting if they do split and is content with the career they've had. In essence, he's satisfied with their 30-year career and history.

    Do you think Sonic Youth with survive?
