Idlewild Announce Hiatus


Idlewild Announce Hiatus


'It seems after this year it's an appropriate time to take a break,' so the frontman Roddy Woomble says.

Scottish rockers Idlewild will go their separate ways once they conclude their current U.K. tour - blaming the hiatus on a lack of "demand" for their music. The band will take an extended break after they wrap up a series of gigs in Britain and Ireland in May.

Frontman Roddy Woomble announced the news in a post on the group's Facebook.com page, but did not reveal if the rockers expect to reunite in future. He writes, "At the end of this final part of the tour we will have played 40 gigs around the U.K. and Ireland in support of (the band's latest album) 'Post Electric Blues', which seems more than enough for some time."

"There isn't the demand for our music that there was in the past, especially not outside of Britain, so it seems after this year it's an appropriate time to take a break, a 'hiatus' or whatever you want to call it."
