Cabinet Announces Indefinite Hiatus
Pennsylvania roots act Cabinet was formed in 2006 and have progressed to the level of hosting their own annual festival at a large amphitheater in their home state. The band will soon embark on a three-night New Year’s Run and has just announced they will begin an “indefinite hiatus” following the shows.
Cabinet explains, “We have reached a point where we feel it necessary and healthy to take a break. Take a step back, reflect, focus on our families, on ourselves, breathe and be grateful.” All of the members of the group issued a note detailing the decision, which can be read below. For now, fans will have chances to see Cabinet on December 29 in Burlington, December 30 in Syracuse and on December 31 fittingly in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania.
Here’s the full statement from the band:
Dear Cabinet Family and Friends,
Since the band was formed in 2006, each passing year has been part of an evolution. We as musicians have evolved, our individual lives and families have evolved, the music has evolved.
Through this evolution over the better part of 10 years we have reached a point where we feel it necessary and healthy to take a break. Take a step back, reflect, focus on our families, on ourselves, breathe and be grateful.
Starting January 1, 2018 Cabinet will be going on an indefinite hiatus. We urge you all to be with us through the end of the year. Your warm presence and support is the good juice that has kept us going!
We are proud of what we have accomplished in the past 10 years and couldn’t be more grateful to have the support from all of our family, friends, and fans. CabFam is real and it has brought us much joy to watch all of you interact with us and each other through out the years. We wouldn’t be able to do what we do without you. So thank you, for being with us through out this journey and evolving with us!
We dont know what the future will hold but we fear not the unknown. We will continue to be positive in our actions and hope to share many more memories with you all as time rolls by.
With love in the name and power of music,
JP, Mick, Pappy, Dylan, Josh and Todd
