The band Hey Monday is on hiatus. Have you ever heard of Hey Monday? They're the proverbial opening act to every alt pop punk show you will ever go to. They could have simply hiatused themselves but instead they actually made it a press release.
I suppose their handful of fans are on their knees crying, but truth be told no one knows who they are so no one knows what they're missing. Hiatus means broken up by the way.. please give me a list of five band who have gone on hiatus and returned to work..good luck.
Here is the silly statement from their guitarist:
Hey Monday guitarist, Alex Gentile has released a statement regarding the recent announcement of the band going on a hiatus and what he plans to do during the break.
"hey guys so i’m just going to fill you in on a few tidily bits. Hey Monday is still a band. The band is not broken up, however we are currently focusing on other aspects of our musical expression. as you all know, Cassadee is pursuing a solo endeavor. she has posted her info about it on her facebook page, so if you would like to go scope that! In lieu of this down time, I am pursuing new music; playing and writing with a new band. this will be my main focus. i’m extremely excited about this, and am looking forward to releasing information about my new band very soon. i’m working some things out, new bands don’t just happen over night! for what alex, pat, and christopher are up to in the meantime, keep up with their twitters and other social networking sites. Keep posted to my blog and twitter for details, ill be leaking little tidbits of info here and there until things are ready to be fully set in motion! whether it is with my new band, other friends that i have been playing/filling in for, or hey monday, i’ll be seeing you guys soon! p.s.- it’s extremely hard to be a band in today’s music industry. anything that will happen with my new band will happen because of you guys. i love you all to death, you guys are the fucking best. <3"
OMG I love you too ALEX!!! SQUEEE ( I edited out the ridiculous smiley face he had in his original statement, for no grown man should use them..wtf)
They're done and they never were. Hey Done With. Looks like theres going to be some tough to fill opening act jobs up for grabs soon.
