Sensationalism much? I expected the worst from the headline, but it doesn't sound like it's going to take them any longer than between their other albums, maybe another year or two. As much as they've been touring, Mike going to Harvard, and writing their own stuff, they deserve a break. INNW wasn't great, but every other album of theirs is amazing.
Last album was simply a misfire. I understand what they were goin for, but it wasn't executed very well and is just a hodge podge of a record. A few gems, but overall, it didn't suit their sound. They had something going with Light Grenades, but I guess the last hiatus killed it.
Light Grenades was their last solid album, so for me they're in hiatus since then. If Not Now, When? wasn't their best effort at all. Kudos for the picture in the cover though, it's a really good cover.
