Oxford alt-rockers today announced a temporary break to focus on babies, moving abroad and general life stuff. Original Facebook post below.
An update from things in the Toliesel camp. December 2015 will see our beloved bassist and producer, Gabs Catalano, head back to his home country of Italy. On top of this, December will see the arrival of our first band-baby as Jack begins life as a family man.
For this reason, we have decided to take a rest from Toliesel for a while.
We have had an amazing few years together and are really proud of everything we have achieved; We headlined the O2 Academy here in Oxford and have supported acts like Dawes during their tour with Mumford & Sons, The Twilight Sad, The Fauns, played at festivals like Truck and Cornbury and Are You Listening, as well as being featured on XFM and BBC Introducing.
We released two EPs that feel distinct and completely personal (to us, at least).
We are in no way calling time on the band, just taking a bit of time to focus on some other projects and life stuffs.
We want to send a huge thank you to everyone who has supported us so far.
In the meantime, enjoy our EPs and videos and watch this space for more Toliesel news in 2016.
