Atoma, which released the "Skylight" album last year (reviewed here), has checked in with the following announcement about going on an indefinite hiatus:
"Atomic friends, we have been forced to put AtomA on ice for a while.
"As nationalism, racism and neoliberalism is on the rise in Europe we fear the well being of our families these coming decades, since we are immigrants in Sweden. Therefore we've been forced to put aside music to focus fully on studies and high education in order to be able to take care of our own when and if the shit goes down in these western countries.
"It pains us that we've had to take a break in the middle of writing the next album, but right now we must work and study hard to protect our families and loved ones from a very uncertain future.
We don't know when we'll be back, but you'll find out on our facebook page.
"We thank you deeply for the support you've been showing AtomA so far and we hope to be back soon to continue developing the vision we had, to create challenging albums that is no slave to any genre, but free to explore and roam through the universe of sound without imaginary prisons.
See you soon." More...
