Exclaim is speculating that the Constantines recent appearance at the Dawson City Music Festival this past July may have been the band's last for the forseeable future. Frontman Bryan Webb played coy in a recent interview with CBC Radio 3, refusing to make any finalistic statments on the band's future but admitting:
I think we're just slowing down… We're in our early 30s and we have some different priorities than we did ten years ago, personally any way. It's time to focus on other things.
The band recently saw the departure of keyboardist / guitarist Will Kidman. The musician, who also performs as solo act Woolly Leaves, was sidelined due to an illness earlier in the year but left the group formally before their Dawson City performance. Guitarist / vocalist Steve Lambke continues to record and perform as his solo act Baby Eagle (they have a new record titled Dog Weather out on August 17th via You've Changed Records). Bryan Webb recently reloacted from Montreal to the band's original home of Guelph, Ontario. He's participating in the National Parks Project, which dispatches Canadian musicians to parkland in Canada to colalborate on new music. The frontman will be working with Sarah Harmer and Jim Guthrie at Haida Gwaii in northern British Columbia. Bassist Dallas Wehrle has started a band in Toronto called Deloro with members of One Hundred Dollars and Attack In Black.
The band's last album was Kensington Heights in 2008.
