Live Announces 2 Year Hiatus

Filed under: Popular Music — Dr. Christopher Blackwell @ 01:43

View ImageOne of my all-time favorite rock bands, LIVE, have announced they plan to takeĀ a 2 year break from recording and touring. Although the band hasn’t released an official announcement, several band members have told fans through their Facebook and Twitter boards they plan to work on some other projects and take a breather from LIVE. Lead singer Ed Kowalczyk reiterated LIVE is not breaking up: “Live is not breaking up. We’re not boyfriends and girlfriends. [We’re just] creatively moving around in different spaces…all good.” Kowalczyk is working on his first solo album while the other members of LIVE are teaming-up with rock group Candlebox to record a new album. Luckily, I was able to see LIVE’s second to last performance last Saturday in Cleveland, Ohio. The show was incredible and was another example of LIVE’s incredible talent and musicality. Hopefully, the band will get some of their solo “itch” out of their system and bring LIVE back together very soon.
