Soulive’s ‘Heavy Touring Break’
Without uttering the ‘h-word,’ Soulive has announced that it will take an extended break from touring after August. The groove-trio will continue to work on its next studio album throughout the fall, before focusing on a variety of extracurricular activities. ‘We have no intentions of disappearing and have some really cool things planned for you during our heavy touring break,’ drummer Alan Evans says. ‘[But] we are going to approach the making of this record and all related business to this new album different this time.’ Soulive will begin its ‘heavy touring break’ after appearing aboard New York’s Rocks Off concert cruise on August 13. The group will perform next at Texas’ Taste of Dallas festival on July 7.
