PORTLANDS POISON IDEA Declares Indefinite Hiatus; Cancels Upcoming Tour Dates

Upon returning from their successful European Tour which consumed the past several weeks, POISON IDEA has returned home and announced that the band is going on hiatus for an undetermined amount of time. The band has issued that they need to address some health issues and personal matters, and all upcoming shows for the undeterminable future have been cancelled or postponed. Additional details on the band’s future plans will be announced at a later date.

In a statement on Social Media the band says:

Poison Idea is going on an indefinite hiatus following a successful month long European Tour due to some health/sanity issues, personal matters and addressing some unfortunate band behavior. All upcoming shows for the undeterminable future will be cancelled or postponed indefinitely. Poison Idea recently released a critically acclaimed new album “Confuse & Conquer” on Southern Lord Recordings.
“See you soon”.

Portland, Oregon’s undisputed kings of punk, POISON IDEA released their critically acclaimed Confuse & Conquer LP through Southern Lord Recordings in April of this year. Setting everything in its path ablaze with the energetic pummeling assault the band has assaulted the planet with for three-and-a-half decades, and by incorporating the use of epic piano segues, the album is an instant classic for all POISON IDEA fans as well as one of the most undeniably important releases in the punk/hardcore realms this year. The band’s first new album since 2006’s Latest Will And Testament, and first since the passing of their great friend and guitarist, the iconic Tom “Pig Champion” Roberts, Confuse & Conquer boasts thirty-five minutes of thundering, infectious rage recorded in the band’s hometown by Joel Grind (Toxic Holocaust) and mastered by Brad Boatright (From Ashes Rise) at Audiosiege, and proves that absolutely nothing can stop this legendary act and all attempts are a futile waste of time.
