Thee Oh Sees not breaking up, just a “well deserved break and transitional period,” new LP in 2014; Henry Rollins is a fan
Thee Oh Sees @ Irving Plaza, Oct 2013 (more by Ebru Yildiz)
Word got out last week that, after a barnstorming five years, Thee Oh Sees were going on "indefinite hiatus." What exactly that meant, we weren't sure but over the weekend, main man John Dwyer posted this on the band's site:
DEAR OH SEES FANS,
THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT.
THE BAND IS NOT BREAKING UP.
THIS IS JUST A WELL DESERVED BREAK AND A TRANSITIONAL PERIOD.
A NEW THEE OH SEES LP WILL BE OUT EARLY 2014
AND WE WILL SEE WHERE THE LIVE SHOW GOES FROM THERE...
UNTIL THEN, BE WELL
Given that Floating Coffin came out back in April, that is more than plenty of time for the mega-prolic Oh Sees to crank out another record, and we look forward to hearing that.
When I buy a record, it's usually a label thing. I'm into artists, certainly, but there's labels I support, like Castle Face, John Dwyer and his band Thee Oh Sees. And I buy one of everything from Johnny. Anything Castle Face puts out. I have one LP and one CD of it. You know, CD for the radio show and portability's sake and the LP to listen to.
