In May 2011, the band entered a nine-year hiatus, with both Matthew and Eleanor pursuing solo careers.[2] In February 2020, it was announced that The Fiery Furnaces would reunite to play at the Pitchfork Music Festival in Chicago. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic the event was canceled.[3] It was later revealed that the band signed to Jack White's Third Man Records label.[4][5]
