Stories Are Going On “Indefinite Hiatus” After Touring With Enter Shikari

We’re just gonna go ahead and file this under “Things That Are Not Okay”.

Despite teasing new happenings back in April, local post-hardcore legends Stories have today announced they’ll be slipping into hibernation following their national tour with Enter Shikari next month.

“We feel that this is for the best and we are all eager to pursue other passions and opportunities at this point of our lives,” the band said in a statement posted to their Facebook page this morning. “We want to say thank you to everyone we’ve been blessed to have met over the years and to anyone who has ever supported this band. We’ve had the opportunity to play with some of our favourite bands and made friends from all over the world whom we will never forget.”

Though timing seems odd, to say the least – the band had their breakout roughly a year ago with an acclaimed signing to UNFD and stunning The Youth To Become LP – the split looks to be an amicable one, with potential for a reunion down the track well alight. For now, though, “we are all eager to pursue other passions and opportunities at this point of our lives,” their post stated.

Stories’ tour with Enter Shikari kicks off on September 19th in Melbourne, before rolling through Brisbane, Sydney, Adelaide and Perth. A headlining farewell is set to go down in their hometown of Sydney before the year’s end, with more details TBA.

Take a look at Stories’ full statement below:
