Regurgitator going onindefinite hiatus

During their keynote address at the BIGSOUND music conference in Brisbane earlier this month Regurgitator’s Quan Yeomans and Ben Ely explained that part of the reason they’re not as prolific as they used to be (they released their first albums Tu-Plang, Unit and in a productive four-year period) is how far apart they live now – Ely is based in Melbourne and Yeomans in Hong Kong. The wait between albums and tours is about to get even longer, with the band announcing that they’re going on hiatus.

As their recent Facebook update puts it, ”...QUAN is entering the ranks of parenthood with his debut child due with his partner in Hong Kong sometime early 2014. Hooray! Secondly this means the upcoming Dirty Pop tour will be the last trip out there for some time.”

Dirty Pop Fantasy, their eighth album, was released this month. The band are currently on the New Zealand leg of the Dirty Pop tour, and will kick off their Australian dates at Hobart’s Republic Bar on Wednesday, September 25.

Saturday, September 21 – Kings Arms, Auckland

i hope that they don't go the same way as dexy's midnight runners did back in the 80's. after taking two sabbaticals from the music business, their third album "don't stand me down" was all but ignored by the music media and the public alike. :-(

Every Regurgitator album since has been ignored, though.

Bit of triple j and some Hottest 100 love, but ultimately did not a lot better than Eduardo.
