Scissor Sisters Announce Indefinite Hiatus
You're going to have to find someone else to "take your mama out" for the foreseeable future -- after 11 years, four albums, two EPs and two DVDs, the Scissor Sisters are taking a break.
The band broke the news from the stage Wednesday night (Oct. 24) at London's Roundhouse theater, informing the audience that they don't have any plans to work together for the time being and hinting at a number of upcoming solo projects.
Vocalists Jake Shears and Ana Matronic were quick to comfort fans who feared the end of the Scissor Sisters, however. Shears took to Twitter to tell followers, "Don't worry, we're not going away forever. We'll be back before you know it. With bells on. Love you." Added Matronic, "It's not goodbye. Just good night."
The Scissor Sisters' hiatus comes just months after the band's fourth album, 'Magic Hour,' was released to generally positive reviews and strong worldwide sales. The album peaked at No. 1 on the U.S. Dance/Electronic Albums chart, while the set's latest single, 'Let's Have a Kiki,' topped Billboard's Hot Dance Club tally. An earlier release, 'Only the Horses,' broke the Top 15 on the U.K. Singles chart.
