American pop rock band Walk The Moon have announced that they are going on an extended hiatus.
The Ohio-based band announced the news of their indefinite break in an emotional 11-minute video shared on YouTube.
“The time has come for us to take a good long break from touring and making records together,” said lead singer Nicholas Petricca. “When we do reconvene, that will be a glorious day. And the truth is, we don’t know when that’s gonna be.”
Reflecting on the number of shows and tours that he and his bandmates – guitarist Eli Maiman and drummer Sean Waugaman – played together and traveled together, the Walk The Moon frontman noted that they are “filled with love, gratitude, appreciation and some heartache.”
“It is an enormous act of love to carefully lift something like this from the center of our lives and place it gently to the side, out of focus, and let it rest for a moment,” Petricca said. “It’s a choice we made powerfully to follow our truth, to make space for new creations, for family, to serve our well-being and, in the long run, even serve the well-being of our community… to hopefully come back one day stronger than before.”
Walk The Moon has three more shows remaining on their current tour, which is set to conclude in Arcadia, Wisconsin, on August 12.
