I'm really sad to hear this. I actually just saw them less than two weeks ago, a few days before the announcement. My friend and I were commenting on how much we love to see them and how unique their shows are. Here's hoping the break they take is because it is (understandably) needed and they do continue as the band some day in the near future. The core trio (Stephen, Goose, Boots) are a fantastic unit but I also love what Sam Getz brings to their dynamic. I'll miss them!
