Trapped Under Ice to Go on Hiatus

by | Feb 23, 2013

Trapped Under Ice have announced plans to go on hiatus.

“Beginning in August 2013, Trapped Under Ice is going on a pretty lengthy hiatus” the band said. “We are NOT breaking up. This is by no means the end of TUI. We just decided that it was important to keep the band fresh and something the five of us enjoy. We don’t wanna spin the wheels for nothing and just write music because we feel like we have to. We don’t really feel right about just putting out another record for the sake of touring right now. So, while its still fun, we’re gonna go on a little break, do all our own things, then take it from there.”

“At this time, we just want to emphasize that TUI, as a band, and as people, all still love hardcore and punk music. We all play in other bands and still tour. More importantly, we’re five people who still love each other and love playing music together. None of that has changed. We’ve been around the world and back a couple times together and all grown a lot as individuals in this band. Made amazing friends and played with some of our favorite bands. We just wanted to keep it honest for people that have stuck with us through thick and thin over the years. There’s no beef, no drama. So anything you hear or read thats not in these paragraphs is 100% NOT true. After a lot of deliberation, we just all felt it was a good time to step back, take a breather, and get a fresh perspective on things.”

The band’s last show will be at This Is Hardcore Fest in Philadelphia, PA in early August.
