I recently heard that Parts & Labor are going on an “extended hiatus”. Here is their statement regarding the hiatus…
This January, Parts & Labor turns 10 years old. We’re planning a string of celebratory shows, in which we play selected material from all of our full length albums, leading up to a big 10th anniversary blow out on February 24th, 2012.
Following these performances, we’re going to take an extended hiatus. We feel incredibly fortunate having had a decade of amazing experiences — making records and new friends, performing with so many killer musicians and artists. But it’s time for each of us to focus on personal projects for a while. We’re all going to continue to make music through other endeavors.
We’d like to thank everyone who’s supported us, bought our albums, seen us live, offered us a floor to sleep on. We love y’all. As a token of our esteem, we’re giving away a final song called “No Nostalgia (featuring Todd Bailey and Where’s The Party At)”, which was recorded during the Receivers sessions, but suddenly seems all too prescient.

Here is that final song.

I don’t know about you, but when I heard the epic “Fractured Skies” for the first time I swear my brain melted. I had to find out who was playing, and I needed to hear more of it. This song restored my faith in punk rock. I hope it does the same for you.
