TVOTR frontman Tunde Adebimpe told MTV at Outside Lands last weekend, in a statement that just surfaced yesterday, "We've decided to take, well, the going theory is to take about a year off, because you have to go and live a life and change things up."

But lest you think the band will be sitting on couches eating Hot Pockets and watching So You Think You Can Dance, various solo and side projects are already released or in the works. Rain Machine, the new moniker for guitarist/singer Kyp Malone, has an album due Sept. 22 on Anti; Dave Sitek has already been working with Israeli act Pink Noise for a soon-to-drop release; and Adebimpe is featured on a new jam by Massive Attack. Phew, these folks will be keeping busy.
