Sitting Down With Steve Choi
 
In a new interview, Rx Bandits' Steve Choi talks about the bands' writing process, as well as their indefinite hiatus.
InterviewIt doesn’t feel like it, because it’s not really. People rely on a regular touring schedule from us, and all we’re doing is taking a break from that. We’re not setting anything into stone. We are by no means breaking up [in the way that] there’s no way we’ll ever play together again.

You're right. After re-reading the headline, "decline" does sound a bit strange for a band that's just taking a hiatus. Going to change it now...

well the interview makes the situation sound a bit more hopeful than i thought, at least they'll possibly still make music together, it's a shame they won't tour again because they're one of the best live bands i've ever seen

I had heard about this. I really hope they release another album in the future.

I'd be fine if they just keep releasing music and not even touring

TomWhaley 07/03/11 11:51 PM

Seeing them on Sunday. It's going to be dirty. What a good band

Part of the problem with the "witty" headlines on this website. I'm hoping that shit falls by the wayside with the new version. /justsayin

I'm just the opposite. Their last album left me cold, and only seeing the songs performed live could get me to reconsider. I fully realize they'll never remake Progress or The Resignation, but even ATBB left me wanting more and seeing those songs live gave me a greater appreciation for them. Whatever the case, I'm looking forward to seeing them again in a few weeks - maybe it'll convince me to give Mandala another spin.
