Basement go on indefinite hiatus after US tour
Basement have announced plans to go on an indefinite hiatus after wrapping up their U.S. tour which kicks off today at Santa Barbara’s Sound & Fury Fest.
The band just finished recording their 2nd LP, Colourmeinkindness, with producer Sam Pura in Northern California this week.
The album will be released by Run For Cover Records this fall.
The band issued the following statement:
Now Colourmeinkindness is finished, we head out to play a string of shows across America. Due to a number of personal commitments, this record and these shows will be the last thing we do as a band for a very long time. Basement has never been about achieving anything; it was simply an enjoyable outlet for creativity and emotion. That being said, we are incredibly grateful for the support we have received over the last two years. We have managed to do some amazing things and see some incredible places and the people we have met along the way will be our friends forever. We seriously cannot express sufficiently how much this means to us. We all have things going on outside of the band that require a lot of time and attention and now more than ever these things have to come first.
