“People throw out the word hiatus but that’s not what we’re doing,” declares bassist Adam Siska, defusing the hyperbole. “This is more vacation time; the off-season for us. When a band says they’re on hiatus, they’re breaking up. Hiatus means you’ll see them in five years on the reunion tour or when they come out of retirement. We’re just taking a step back. People can benefit from it sometimes. “
On a lighter note, they need this. Some down time will most likely benefit them.
