New York rockers The Walkmen have just announced they have no immediate plans after they finish their upcoming Washington and Philadelphia shows; thirteen years and seven studio albums have gone by, and the indie band could be calling it quits.

"We really just have no idea," says bassist/organist Peter Bauer. "I don’t think any of us wanted to write another Walkmen record. Maybe that will change down the line, maybe it won’t, maybe we'll play shows. I think it's weird to make a hubbub about something if there's nothing to really make a hubbub about. At the same time, I don't think we’ve been a gang properly for a long time, so there's not much to break up, I guess."

Although they are not officially breaking up, the hiatus is not temporary: "It's been almost 14 years now," he adds. "I think that's enough, you know?"

The five members have been playing together since their teenage years, but now they are dedicating more time to their families; three of the members (including Bauer) are also working on solo projects. [via Washington Post]
