Sonic Youth's Lee Ranaldo Updates on the Bands Current Hiatus

Sonic Youth's Lee Ranaldo released a new side-project last month entitled, 'Between The Times and the Tides', which has been described as 'a sparkling collection of ragged folk and psychedelically warped rock.'

In a recent interview with Spinner the New Yorker offered his opinion on the bands current 'much needed' hiatus:

"It's up in the air," says Ranaldo, speaking from his home in Brooklyn. "We're taking a much-needed break and leaving it at that. We're not saying anything final, but we're not discussing anything for the future either. We're just letting it be."

He added: "Our lives and careers are so intertwined that, even if nothing is happening as far as new recordings and new performances, we'll be tied to each other. We've had an amazing 30-year run. We'll see what the future holds."

Sonic Youth co-founder Ranaldo released his ninth solo LP 'Between The Times And The Tides' in March.
