Controversial Antipodean rockers Jet have gone the same way as At The Drive-In; calling time on their grand story for now and going on an indefinite hiatus.
Singer and axe-wielder Chris Cester relayed the news through a MySpace bulletin posted from the band’s profile today (24 Oct). He put the decision down to the gradual erosion on health and family life caused by four years of continual touring.
"We've just decided to take some well-earned time off," reeled Cester.
"After touring for, well, ever, we sat ourselves down and realised that, with all the time we have spent away from home, Jet could finally use some down time."
DiS agrees. The members will walk various other musical avenues in the bleak interim that lies between Jet album two and Jet album three; solo projects birthing, production duties taken up.
