Ben Kweller has been in the middle of a self-imposed hiatus from the music business, but he used his New Year’s Eve to remind fans that he’s ready to come back.
Kweller published a quick post simply saying “2019 is here and my 5yr hiatus is over. I’m starting everything back up and I can’t wait to see you out on the road!” He goes on to say that he’s working with Little Dan, Spanky, and Matter Mistery this month on band rehearsals and that they are learning his entire catalog. Pretty exciting!
