Hard Lessons + Baby = Hiatus


The Hard Lessons announced via their tumblr page some news: Korin and Augie are expecting their first child in July.  That's impending rock 'n' roll maternity leave for HL fans.

"To all who have supported The Hard Lessons over the last 8 years and 700 shows in 6 countries, we would like to share the following news with you. It is with great happiness and anticipation that we are announcing the impending July birth of our first child of an unknown gender and name.

The urgency we feel in preparing for said child’s arrival is matched only by our desire to properly cap off the end of this amazing first era of the band.

Our next four shows will be the last electric shows we perform before going on a hiatus of an indefinite length. While each of these finals shows will be extremely special to us, we are especially pleased to be ending this leg of the journey at the Metro Times Blowout for a show that will include songs new and old, as well as reunions with former members of the band. "

Whenever Korin and Augie return to music it'll be with a vengeance.  And I can't wait to see their kid play parent when the old man performs again: "No Dad!  Don't leap from the PA! Ya nuts?"

Also has anyone noticed how may rock 'n' roll couples have kids or are expecting?  2025 is going to be a great year for Detroit Rock 'n' Roll.

Congrats Korin and Augie!
