Rain Machine & Tunde Adebimpe
TV on the Radio

"Exhausted from touring, TV On the Radio have announced they going on hiatus for a year. The band will use the time to recuperate, visit family, and release at least one solo album.

"The funny thing about this band is that I feel like everyone's amazed that we're on tour, and that we're even a band," singer Tunde Adebimpe told MTV News. "If you'd asked all four of us six years ago if we'd want to be in a band, unanimously, it would be like, 'Well maybe for three weeks, yeah.' It's great we've been able to do it for so long, but everyone's kind of got other projects they want to tend to."

"The going theory is to take about a year off, because you have to go and live a life and change things up."" [Guardian]

Kyp has been changing things up by devoting time to his Anti-signed Rain Machine project which he'll be performing as/with tonight (9/21) at The Bell House in Brooklyn. Sharon Van Etten and Candles of Paradise are also on the bill. More Rain Machine dates HERE.

Back when TVOTR were not on hiatus, they played a set in Philly as part of the Roots Picnic. This unpublished set of pictures is from that event, and they are continued below...
