Autopilot Off has announced that they are going on an indefinite hiatus. The band posted the following message on their website:
So, it's been quite a while since we have posted any news. We've been off the road for well over 6 months now. We played a couple of shows over the holidays in NY. But that is about all that has gone on. Rumors have started to fly around about what we are up to. We think its about time that we filled you all in…..
We've decided to take an indefinite break from Autopilot Off. It has been nearly 10 years since the band started, and it has been full speed ahead for the majority of that time. We have all decided to take some time for our lives outside of the band. We are all still the best of friends. In addition to this we decided a few months back to leave our home of 4 years at Island Records. We apologize for leaving you all hanging for so long. Thank you so much for all the support and friendships that you all have given to us over the years. We could never have done it without you.
The band left Island after releasing their only album for the label, titled Make a Sound in 2004. Since then, guitarist Chris Huges has gone on to form Broken English with John Naclerio. The label is part of the East West incubator and released the first full length from Just Surrender.
