An Unfavorable "Disclosure": U.K. House Group Announces Hiatus
Now that we’ve got—and have kept— Howard and Guy Lawrence “in our space” for seven years, we’re reluctant to “let go” of them. Yet relinquish the Lawrence brothers, better known as the U.K. house/garage duo, Disclosure, we must, according to a letter posted this afternoon on Disclosure’s Twitter account.
The letter appears below, opening with a sincere expression of thanks to fans for their continued support of, and enthusiasm for the Reigate born brothers and their music. In a credit to their youth, Disclosure muses that their dance music track record has been an “incredible journey…filled with shows bigger and bigger than [their] childhood minds could have ever imagined.” And Disclosure’s history as a house duo has indeed been “incredible,” what with four Grammy award nominations, a world tour, and stream counts in the multimillions.
After years of unremitting momentum, however, the Disclosure brothers are understandably in need of a break, however unwilling fans may be to unlatch their expectations of new music from the duo. The letter advertises the continuation of Disclosure’s England based “Wild Life” festival before the group’s declaration of an official hiatus: “we’re going to be taking some time out and enjoying some much needed rest.” “We will be back!” vow Guy and Howard, but, in the words of the Lawrence brothers, “until then,” it’s only Disclosure’s previous releases that “help [us] lose our minds.”
