Rush have announced that they will be going on hiatus following the wrap of their current Clockwork Angels tour.
"We've committed to taking about a year off," guitarist Alex Lifeson told Billboard. "We all agreed when we finished this tour we were going to take this time off and we weren't going to talk about band stuff or make any plans."
He made it plain that the band would eventually return: "We haven't stopped or quit. Right now we're just relaxing."
Lifeson added that, even though they are going to take a break, the band might use some of their free time to work on their next album.
"[We] typically get a little bored, and so we enjoy writing and working together and I wouldn't doubt that some time in the New Year we'll probably gravitate towards each other and start doing some writing."
