You'd think a band who's been name checked on All My Children would be swimming in millions of dollars, but that doesn't seem to be the case. The band released a statement saying they are going on an indefinite hiatus. That's a total bummer to a dude such as myself, who's a big fan of the band. At one point, I thought that their style of electro-grind was the future of metal. Clearly, these guys are ahead of their time, because the current time does not afford them the luxury of just making music. Here is the band's statement:
Things have been pretty quiet for Genghis Tron recently, which has led some folks to ask us if we’re breaking up. Well, we definitely aren’t breaking up, but we have decided to take some time away from the band.
It will be a while before we release another record — and probably even longer before we play shows. However, this was the best thing we could do to make sure that GT keeps writing some real toe-tappers. Whenever we come back, it will probably be pretty weird and really good.
Thanks for all of the support,
– Mookie, Michael, and Hamilton“
Check out this interview we conducted with Mookie and Michael around the release of Board Up The House two years ago which came out rather hilarious.
