The Gaslight Anthem Going On Hiatus After August Tour (Week In Review)

On Thursday The Gaslight Anthem Going On Hiatus After August Tour was a top story. Here is the recap: The Gaslight Anthem announced on Wednesday that they will be putting the band on hiatus to focus on individual projects. The break will begin after the band complete their upcoming European tour.

The tour is scheduled to kick off on August 14th in Budapest at the Sziget Festival and will conclude with an appearance at this year's Reading Festival in the UK on August 30th.

The band did not indication how long the break would last. Here is the message that they posted on their Facebook page "We wanted to let everyone know that we'll all be taking a break from The Gaslight Anthem after this next European tour in August. We're all going to do other projects and stay active in some way or another, both in and out of music, but we'd like to step away from the band until we decide what we'd like to do next.

"We'd like to recharge and take a step back until we have something we feel excited about rather than going right back to making a record just for the sake of making the next record. We all feel this is the best decision we can make and it feels like the right one for us.

"Thank you to everyone who came out and supported our band for the last eight years and we'll see you down the road!" -
