Thee Oh Sees have confirmed their intention to take a break.
Initially begun as a side project, Thee Oh Sees' brand of fetid garage punk has developed a (highly successful) life of its own. Sadly, it seems that the group are set to take a break - and there is no sign of continuing activity.
Playing a show at San Francisco's Great American Music Hall, John Dwyer told the crowd: ""This will be the last Oh Sees show for a long while... so dig in."
SFWeekly spoke to representatives from the band, who confirmed that Thee Oh Sees are to take a break. With members of the band moving to different cities across California, it looks as though keeping the group together has simply become unsustainable.
"They need a break after 5 years straight, so yes ... hiatus time," the band's booking agent Annie Southworth revealed. "Will be a little hard to continue with all the different locales so who know what is going to happen... Cross fingers, we all are that it's not completely over." (via Stereogum)
