Late Of The Pier have announced they will be taking a break from playing live shows.

However, the band intend to use their time constructively, and will launch a monthly singles club in the meantime.

"We're going to take some time out from Late Of The Pier live shows for a while. Figure things out properly. Do it bigger and better next time," wrote the band's Andrew Faley in a mailout.

"In the meantime we're going to be working on a heap of other projects, one of which is dedicating a lot of time to setting up our label Zarcorp Inc," he added. "Something that'll allow us to present other records/artists we're involved with, love, wish we'd made or simply just honest music we feel deserves to be encased in time. It'll also be the way we release all physical copies of upcoming/future LOTP records."

The label will intends to have a regular monthly release, limited to to 500 copies of heavyweight white vinyl. There will be now downloads.

"We're doing everything from our bedrooms, completely DIY," explained Faley. "Meaning we have complete quality control, selling it entirely via paypal on the MySpace - and a few copies will be stocked in Escalator Records in Tokyo - and processing/posting them all from home."

The label's next release will be by New Jersey duo called Pink Stallone, and is described as being "a pretty little disco number/dubby little disco number".
