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."
nooo this makes me sad
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.
At least they appear to most likely end up writing new material again. I like these guys
Digging: Culprate - Colours
What a shame, I was hoping they'd tour sometime soon. Still haven't seen them, but I've heard they're great live.
cloak of love is my favorite album of theirs
Not surprised that this happened.
kinda sucks. hopefully they will release en epic album when they get back together though.

Not gonna lie
This made me sad
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?
Board up The House was too awesome... please leave this hiatus thing and give us moar!
Noooooooooo! But Genghis Tron rules the largest empire in human history D:
Hope it doesn't last too long..
I Won't Come Back Alive is the best thing they've ever done, great song.
Digging: Das EFX - Dead Serious
Me so sad.
good to see a band doing this instead of a) releasing shit album after shit album, or b) running themselves into the ground and just breaking up
cant wait to hear the new stuff
nooo nooo NOOOOOOOOO WHYYYYYYYYYYYY?
Digging: Deafheaven - Sunbather
I Won't Come Back Alive is the best thing they've ever done, great song.Recursion + I Won't Come Back Alive is killer. Disappointing news...
Still need to check these guys out.
Luv this band
Oh well, there are lots of better bands to cry over.
Digging: Demilich - Nespithe
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?
Digging: Mutoid Man - Helium Head
Daughters is already done ;_;
