Valencia have announced that they will be going on a hiatus. The five-piece will play a send off show on December 28th, in Philadelphia’s Electric Factory. A full statement from the band can be read below.
“Valencia originally came together back in 2003. Most of us were still just in high school, but we all had gotten to know each other through the tightly knit music community we grew up in around Philadelphia. We started this band because of a mutual need to create something heartfelt and to give everyone a message we needed to share. We all felt like music would be the most significant part of our lives, but never in our wildest dreams could we have predicted the things we’d get to do, or more importantly, the people we would meet because of this band and the songs we wrote and shared with the world.

In an interview with Radio One, Blink-182’s Tom Delonge spoke about why Blink-182 went on hiatus in 2005.
“The band got so big that the machine running the band took over. We were burnt out, we needed a break, but the machine won’t let you do that. The band had stopped communicating because the machine was so big.”
He also talked about Blink’s heavily anticipated new album, ‘Neighborhoods’:
“The album’s amazing. If you like our music, it’s our best work by far. It’s very modern, very relevant to rock music today, but we made sure to throw a couple of songs in there that sound like they’re from the mid 90s. It’s gigantic, it’s made for big places.”
