Bloc Party announce hiatus
Speaking to Postmedia News, Russell Lissack explained that the poor dears are tired from touring and are looking to take an extended break after the festival season ends.
Lissack expects that the break will last, "at least six months, maybe a year, maybe two years... It's hard to say. Once we start taking time off people start doing their own thing… extending how long we spend apart."
The band have taken a lengthy hiatus before, the last being in 2009. If the break keeps the band together, it's probably a good idea.
