It was more a 'stop' to everyone, not just you in particular, though it did come off that way. It's just like, indefinite hiatuses seem more as a way to drum up ticket sales these days. They don't seem genuine, but our fandom is. I get it, it's a business, and I'm certainly cynical about it, but it's just like, they're gonna do their thing, recharge their batteries, and get back out there. Point taken, though.
I understand the cynicism, but don't think these two bands have warranted it. Thrice and Thursday both have never appeared less than genuine about the art they create. Of course they'll call it a hiatus. They love the music they've made and the fans they've garnered because we are as genuine about loving music as they are about making it--they have to hope that one day they get to enjoy that feeling again, so why rule out a reunion?

Are we really so cynical that we think two of the most credible and integrity filled artists (Thrice and Thursday) are going on hiatus as a means to trick fans to go see their shows? I don't buy it.
Exactly what I was trying to say, but in far less words. Efficiency is key.
