I am a sad panda. A sad panda indeed.
Here’s the band’s statement:
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.
Thanks for all of the support,
— Mookie, Michael, and Hamilton
While they never used the dreaded “H-word”, but that’s pretty much what they’re doing. Hopefully they come back at full force within a couple of years. I need some more Genghis Tron; Board Up The House was one of my favorites from 2008.
Here’s a video for “Board Up The House,” which makes me grateful that they decided to write real songs with dynamic instead of stringing random passages together like they did on Cloak of Love.
Come back soon GT. We’ll miss you!
