After postponing their long-awaited album into the new year, The Reasoning have now cancelled their upcoming tour, and the release of the album may be postponed further.
The band will be spending more time working on their next album, which currently has the working title of Horrorscopic. They say, “We’ve decided to take some time away from the music, in order to allow it to grow and develop more naturally. This will also enable us to think carefully about how best to produce, record and promote it.
“There’s no finite limit to said breather: whether it takes us six months or two years to create an album that we’re genuinely proud of, then it will have been more than worth the wait. We hope that you will agree and understand. In the interim, of course, you’ll still see many of us out and about at other gigs, pontificating online and (if you’re really lucky) doing the weekly shopping [insert supermarket of your choosing].”
Despite the ostensibly upbeat tone of the announcement, you can’t help wondering about the long-tem future of the band with news like this.
