Genghis Tron On Hiatus

2010-10-19 by Adam Thomas EMERITUS | 29 Comments
Electro-grindsters Genghis Tron are going on hiatus. A statement released by the band suggests that they were getting burnt out. It has been two years since the release of their acclaimed third album Board Up The House.

"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."

I didn't think this was news. I swear I read about this a while ago.


Edit: Nevermind, I just read about it on the 15th on LambGoat. That was only a few days ago.

What a shame, I was hoping they'd tour sometime soon. Still haven't seen them, but I've heard they're great live.

Bad news.

Board Up The House was immense.

At least they are brutally honest about their state of mind and that can't be ignored.

Those remixes are all official releases, they had a different colour vinyl for each release.

They could of released a new cd and then when on hiatus, it's been three years since their last. Doesn't really make sense as it stands, what have they been doing since then?

Recursion + I Won't Come Back Alive is killer. Disappointing news...

@ anotherdeadjuliet

They probably didn't want to release a new album just to do it, then split for a while and not tour on it.

First Poison The Well and Burst, now this... saddens me for real. Kinda looks like all the original and creative bands are doomed.

What next? Daughters? Converge?
