I understand their choice, and respect it, but it still burns like hell. All of my favorite bands have broken up or gone on hiatus in the last 6-8 years. Streetlight going on hiatus is like the final nail in the coffin haha. I wish them the best though, I'm super happy I went to see them in November, and at Warped last year.
can we call a moratorium on the term "hiatus" please? not wanting to tour so much anymore because you're an adult doesn't mean your band ceases to exist. it's sort of the exact opposite of when RXB said they would stop making new albums and everyone started treating it as a breakup. this band has been touring ALL THE FREAKING TIME for ten years. are there really that many streetlight fans out there who haven't had enough opportunities to see them live and are super let down? let it be. they had their time, and you can enjoy their "reunion" tour in a few years.
