Thee Oh Sees announce indefinite hiatus

20 December 2013, 09:38 | Written by Luke Morgan Britton

San Fran garage rock outfit, Thee Oh Sees are to take a break after more than a decade as a band.

The news comes after frontman John Dwyer recently told fans during the band’s show at San Francisco’s Great American Music Hall: “This will be the last Oh Sees show for a long while. So dig in.” The group’s tour manager also told SF Weekly that they “need a break after 5 years straight, so yes … hiatus time. Will be a little hard to continue with all the different locales so who know what is going to happen… Cross fingers, we all are (sure) that it’s not completely over”.

A main reason for the hiatus is that Dwyer is set to move from the Bay Area shortly, where the band have long been based.

The prolific group released their last two albums earlier in 2013.
