So there’s no breakup, and there’s no hiatus. I guess this teaches us all a valuable lesson. Don’t believe what you read on the internet until you hear it from the band themselves!
…and it’s not anything at all that we wanted to hear. : (
The band has made the announcement that they are on an “indefinite hiatus,” or an “ihateus,” as they’re calling it.
Taylor Hawkins told Artisan News:
“[It’s] not because we don’t love each other, or don’t want to make music together. We did so much in the last five or six years, we as a band could go into the studio tomorrow and have just as much fun as we ever had, but I think the world needs a break from us for a little while.”
