Parts & Labor: Indefinite Hiatus


Posted at 4:45pm, 10/14/2011

Parts & Labor have just announced their 10th Anniversary and retrospective shows which will be followed by indefinite hiatus. We've copied their letter below as well as a Playlist featuring a few of our favorite tracks from Parts & Labor over the years.

From Parts & Labor in their own words:

Dear friends,

This January, Parts & Labor turns 10 years old. We're planning a string of celebratory shows, in which we play selected material from all of our full length albums, leading up to a big 10th anniversary blow out on February 24th, 2012.

Following these performances, we're going to take an extended hiatus. We feel incredibly fortunate having had a decade of amazing experiences -- making records and new friends, performing with so many killer musicians and artists. But it's time for each of us to focus on personal projects for a while. We're all going to continue to make music through other endeavors.

We'd like to thank everyone who's supported us, bought our albums, seen us live, offered us a floor to sleep on. We love y'all. As a token of our esteem, we're giving away a final song called "No Nostalgia (featuring Todd Bailey and Where's The Party At)", which was recorded during the Receivers sessions, but suddenly seems all too prescient.

Dan/BJ/Joe (Parts & Labor)
