Two months into Dopapod’s year-long hiatus, they’ve released a new music video for their song “Mucho.”
“Mucho” was featured on the band’s 2017 release MEGAGEM. The band announced their hiatus in September, a few weeks before the album’s release date. They assured fans that the band was not breaking up permanently, but rather taking a break to “refocus on themselves” and explore other projects.
“Going into the unknown like this is extremely scary for many reasons, but I think it is one of the most necessary things people need to do every once in a while just to shake things up and not get too comfortable,” keyboardist Eli Winderman wrote in a statement about the hiatus. “It forces you to rethink everything you’ve worked for in your life and in turn it hopefully gives you a whole new perspective.”
Currently, Winderman is touring with his side-project Octave Cat, and drummer Neal Evans and bassist Chuck Jones have partnered up to form Mom And Dad. Lead guitarist Rob Compa has made recent appearances with Pink Talking Fish, his own project Oval Sandwich as well as a newly announced acoustic duo show with Mike Gantzer of Aqueous.
