Looks like a similar blueprint to 2014, gearing up for a big 2015. Hoping this just means a massive 2019!

This was some less than optimal news to wake up to. Selfishly hoping the reason behind this is a new album, but nothing would surprise me. Hope all is well in Jacket land.

Kind of sucks but on the same note maybe a good thing.
Folks around here have been down on their "stale" setlists recently, hopefully this year off gives them time to get in the studio and mix things up a bit.
i'll definitely miss them next year though.

I am upset that the band can't let us fans know this news directly. They are a band that doesn't really mingle with their fans.

I hope after this time off they can interact with their fans more.

Honestly I don't mind if they take next year off. I think Jack White will be touring and that will preoccupy me with MMJ off.

I've never interacted with anyone in the band other than Bo & Tom on Twitter (RIP @sometomguy), but I know many people who have met & talked to the guys, even seen pics of Jim doing singalongs at Newport after parties with fans. Not sure if you have a higher expectation for them to "mingle" but I think it's pretty rad that they even interact as much they seem to based on the pics I've seen on FB or here. 
Don't you ever turn it off

I've met and spoken to them all at various shows (theirs and others) - they are totally approachable and quite honestly the most open book and humble band I've ever interacted with.

I am not talking about in person as I have talked to all of them in person.  I am talking about the band being more interactive with their fans overall.  I compare it to what Umphrey's does with their fans.  They do livestreams, some for free. Always active on socials. Has ton of events. Tons of merch.

Just looking for more.

comparing is natural & we all do it, but not always fair to those being compared. If you're looking for MMJ to be more like UM in that way, you're probably going to continue to be disappointed and that's not the band's fault.

MMJ is an open book compared to Pearl Jam!

Yeah its 2017. I expect pretty much full on access to all band members. I think they should periscope everything. They also need to do a youtube show (and a podcast), and I don't mean daily--just two to four times a week. Really not a lot to aks.

lol - they should all send you clips of them taking a dump every Tuesday morning, farting on Thursdays, and waiting in line for coffee on Saturday mornings.  (well, maybe the pizza shop with Tommy)

Haha, the dump cam would be great for this band and its "brand".

I mean no offense with the exaggerations but one thing I like about certain bands/artists is elusiveness or mysteriousness. Led Zeppelin was my favorite band growing up and I never knew much about them besides their music. I think this added to their mystique, their power, etc.

Jim James agrees 100% with you and has said as such in multiple interviews. Part of why they are the way they are and I dig it. True rock star mystique that is missing from almost all modern artists as we get to know everything about them
Mona Lisa must'a had the highway blues, you can tell by the way she smiles.

The Zep mystique was real in the 70's. Brilliant marketing. Jimmy page set out to intentionally make the biggest band in the world, and he micromanaged every aspect of it, to brilliant success.
