Dance rockers part ways to pursue other projects

Does It Offend You, Yeah? have announced that they are going to be on hiatus for “the foreseeable future”.

The band recorded two albums, their 2008 debut ‘You Have No Idea What You’re Getting Yourself Into’ and 2011’s ‘Don’t Say We Didn’t Warn You’ and featured on the 2008 NME Awards Tour. You can watch an interview with the band from that tour by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking.

They announced their plans to go on hiatus on their official Facebook, writing: “We’d just like to announce that DIOYY is now on hiatus for the foreseeable future. After five years touring the world, playing alongside some of our favourite bands and visiting some awesome countries we’ve decided to concentrate on other projects.”

They continued: “James and Dan are working on a new EP for a purely electronic project which we’ll bring you news on soon, we’ll also keep you informed of what Chloe, Rob and Mattie are up to. We might do the odd very special gig if our schedules permit it.”

The band have not given any more details about their plans for a farewell gig as yet.
