Great music is coming out on my birthday. Good stuff. I would get it if I was into vinyl.

Have you read (I think it was) Riley's blog where he talked about the impending break/hiatus/whatever? He made it seem pretty indefinite.

Hey dude! Do you think you could link to that post? I was looking on his blog and couldn't find anything about the hiatus. Thanks!

Here it is. Guess it was written for Flip Collective, not his own personal blog. Anyways, here's the main quote:

Quote:
And now…now it’s gone. “The band thing” as I’ve come to know it over the past thirteen years, is done. The touring, the writing and recording, the dream that became a career, all…done. Maybe for a while. Maybe for good. It’s not really my choice to make.

It's certainly possible that they'll be back with a new album in no more than a few years, but there is no reason to expect it as if it's by any stretch of the imagination guaranteed. Bands always say they aren't really breaking up, and sometimes go on to not play together for years and years afterwards.
Yes, I read that. I just didn't think it was fair to the band to call this an "end to their career" when the first line of their hiatus announcement was that they weren't breaking up. Whether or not they make more music together is up to them.

Fair enough. It may not be the end, but it has a good chance of being the end, at least for a long time if not forever, and I'm pretty sure that's why people (Riley included) are talking about it in terms of at least some finality.
