Westbound Train has announced that they will be going on hiatus following two east coast shows in December.

The two remaining shows we have on the books -- The Middle East (Downstairs) in Boston on Friday, December 4 and The Highline Ballroom in NYC on Saturday, December 5 -- will be the last Westbound Train shows scheduled in the foreseeable future. Don't worry - we're not breaking up by any means - but we don't have any shows booked after December 4 and 5 and, extraordinary circumstances aside, it looks like it might stay that way for a while.

Many members of the band are transitioning into different phases in their lives - personal, professional, etc - and some time off the road will help to ensure smooth transitions for each member and for the future of the band as a whole.

The band released Come and Get It this year.
