The band with the best haircuts in rock announce an "indefinite hiatus"....

AT THE DRIVE-IN have announced they are to go on "indefinite hiatus", beginning with the cancellation of a US tour due to begin on April 11.

In a statement released late yesterday (March 27), guitarist Omar Rodriguez said: "After a non-stop six-year cycle of record/tour/record/tour, we are going on an indefinite hiatus. We need time to rest up and re-evaluate, just to be human beings again and to decide when we feel like playing music again."

The five-piece formed in El Paso in 1994, but it wasn't until last year's 'Relationship Of Command' album that they finally began to taste some genuine success.

Despite the break, NME.COM understands that at present the band do not intend to split permanently. It is not known how the break will impact on De Facto, the side project formed by Rodriguez and AT D-I frontman Cedric Bixler. De Facto are due to release their debut album later this year.
