I believe that this has been mentioned, but on Tuesday I went to the Huntington, NY show. I got a chance to briefly meet Brian afterwards and, of course with me wanting to indulge in more Gaslight shows, I asked if they would be coming over to the west coast anytime soon because I was out from California (I haven't been on the forum lately so I hadn't seen this update -- oops). He said no, that the band was gonna go home for a bit and take a break, but that he was gonna be out doing some stuff on his own.

Were you at the Hunting Village Tavern with your boyfriend before the show?? I think me and my cousin spent a good amount of time talking to you two. My cousin had the red hair, and I'm Mike the one with the black hair. It was nice meeting you guys, hope you enjoyed the show as much as we did and hopefully the rest of your NY stay was good!

And so now it's official... They just posted this on Facebook

Quote :
THE GASLIGHT ANTHEM
3 min. ∑

Hello all!
We wanted to let everyone know that we'll all be taking a break from The Gaslight Anthem after this next European tour in August. We're all going to do other projects and stay active in some way or another, both in and out of music, but we'd like to step away from the band until we decide what we'd like to do next.

We'd like to recharge and take a step back until we have something we feel excited about rather than going right back to making a record just for the sake of making the next record. We all feel this is the best decision we can make and it feels like the right one for us.

Thank you to everyone who came out and supported our band for the last eight years and we'll see you down the road!

With love and respect,
Brian, Benny, Alex and Alex.

At best it will be 2017 I say. I hope.

I agree there will be a Fallon project sooner than later.

That will help.

Just don't want to not hear these songs live again. Had so many great nights at these shows.

You would think for them to state this they will need at least a year before they hit a studio. They clearly need to separate, explore and than regroup.

Hopefully

Honestly, I don't think they're restricting themselves to a specific timeline. Like if you're taking time off till you have a good idea, you don't know when that will be. I imagine that 2 years and maybe some writing for other projects will give them each something new to bring to the table and allow for new inspiration, but I don't think it's like "yes, new album 2017, tour from july through november" They probably need just enough space from it, to feel refreshed and like they have a new perspective.

I've seen bands say they are going on an unspecified break and then come back within 6 months (Foo Fighters being one of the prime examples of that). Sometimes it can be a few years and sometimes they never come back.

At the end of the day, the band have to do what is right for them. On a personal level, I'm glad I got a ticket for the London show now, which I ummed and ahhed over for a while. Very Happy

My thoughts on this are still all over the place tonight.

They have given us hints for a few weeks but seeing the official announcement on FB tonight made my heart sink to the floor and below.

My practical self tells me that it is completely normal for any band to take a break after a record and tour and that it would be impossible for them to keep going like they have in the past if we want to see them for the next twenty years or more. †With most bands I like I am used to not seeing them for a couple of years after a tour.

My selfish self has been spoiled with my continuous Gaslight fix every few months and I will miss that. Even more so as the sets they have been playing this year have been the best ever. †It seems impossible theyíd †stop now but on the other hand, perhaps knowing theyíll take a break after this tour has made this tour better for them.

And my grateful self says thanks guys for the music you have given us over the past eight years. I canít imagine not having your songs in my life.

Going to Bridgeport on Saturday.

I'm not too panicked over this news only because they said they were taking a break and I see no evidence to believe that they won't eventually reconvene to make more music. In the meantime I hope we'll get another Horrible Crowes album or a Brian solo project. A lot of bands do this from time to time and I wouldn't worry about it. They deserve a rest and hopefully they'll come back in a few years ready to amaze us all over again.

I don't feel much one way or the other about the announcement, because it pretty much mirrors exactly what they've been saying to the folks who've chatted with them after the shows recently and we knew it was coming. If anything, I'm happy they made a statement rather than just quietly petering out for awhile and leaving everybody wondering what was going on. Plus after what Shelby said Brian told her about it not being super long, I'm really not that worried. I mean, it is what it is. I'm bummed that it'll be awhile before I see them again or get any new music, but they need a rest, and we'll survive till they come back.

Is it weird that i'm mildly excited for how excited I'll be when they come back? Don't take this the wrong way, I've never gotten bored of them but usually they come around again right as I'm about to be like "hmm, I think it's about time for another show". It'll kinda be nice to hit a point where I'm like "oh thank you Jesus it's about time!" I think it'll be great.

...She says only a week after her most recent show. 8-months-into-the-future-me will likely disagree.

I'm not too worried. Things with the group seem totally amicable, it's not like they're going to disappear for four years (I hope). They've been going at it for eight+ years straight, they've earned a breather.

The prospect of not getting a new album from them for some time is kinda shitty, but at least now Brian can rest his voice so he doesn't sound so bad and strained live.

Not posted on here in a long time guys so hi!

I honestly truly believe that a BF solo album will be better than anything we can ever imagine. As much as I love the dynamic, I think that Elsie proved to me and a lot of people that the major creative force behind Gaslight was Brian and the music he creates when he has the freedom by himself is mesmerizing. If a hiatus means a BF solo album, then I'm not upset in the slightest.

Although Iím obviously gutted that Gaslight are planning an extended break, Iím excited by the idea of side projects and for them to get a well earned rest.

Itís better to have them take this time now to relax and regain passion rather than release stuff they arenít happy with and possibly break up for good.

(Also rather cheekily crossing fingers for a new Horrible Crowes album or a Local Summer tour in England or something similar because Iím a greedy bastard)

But yeah we knew it was coming and they arenít speaking in terms of an actual break up yet, so hopefully thereís no reason to panic fully just because the statement has now been released

And luckily they've provided us with such brilliant material down the years that it'll definitely last the next few years! Enjoy the rest lads - you've earned it!

Eight years and five (and a half) good albums without a lineup change is good going by anyone's standards; they seem to work pretty hard and it must get wearing. At least they didn't get to the point of putting out awful records before realising they needed a break as some bands do (yes, I'm looking at you, Bon Jovi...).

I've seen a couple of bands on reunion tours after a break or breakup, and there's definitely a new fire and enthusiasm, so we've got that to look forward to in a couple of years.

And in the meantime, solo projects to be excited about, especially Brian's for me if the new songs are anything to go by. And of course tours will be back to smaller venues, which is always a plus.

Look on the bright side!

pretty much agree with what others are saying ,better to have a break and recharge do other stuff and generally after a while if they miss each other give it another go and i would be gutted if they just quit and say thats it without saying goodbye with a tour ,so have a rest and not growing to hate each other is best
