Controlling the Famous have announced an indefinite hiatus. The band had this to say:
Like with any band, its a tough job to be on the road, touring non-stop, constantly away from family and friends, have no money (flat broke), and live out of a van. It can really wear a person down and leave you questioning why you decided to start playing music in the first place.
However, some words were said about the tour about a week ago, and it became clear that some band members were ready to move onto the next stage in their life. It is sad and unfortunate, but its a decision each individual member had to make themself. Its a cliche situation, but again, everyone is still friends and everyone will continue on their own paths.
I will personally be keeping the spirit of Controlling the Famous alive, by finding new people to play music with. The band name may change, but the music will keep going.
The band released Automatic City earlier this year.
