Pendulum have said they will not be touring in 2012 as they're taking a year off to rest and make a new record.

The band, who have been touring their third album 'Immersion' solidly since it was released last year, said from the stage at V Festival this evening (August 21) that they will return in 2013 with a new album.

Singer Ben 'The Verse' Mount said to the packed crowd:

We want to thank everyone who has supported Pendulum over the last five years. We're going to take next year off to make a new album and then we'll be back in 2013. We look forward to seeing you all then.



Pendulum have been a constant across the UK festival circuit this summer, having played Glastonbury, Download, T In The Park and Oxygen as well as over 20 others across Europe.

The Australian dance rockers also still have sets at Bestival and South West Four weekender to complete before their UK and Ireland festival run is over.
