MANILA -- They just released their first full-length album this year.

But it looks like fans of promising indie math rockers Fools and Foes are going to have to wait for a while for some follow-up material, after the band announced this Thursday that it will be taking an indefinite break from making music.

In a statement posted on Facebook, the remaining members of Fools and Foes explained that the departure of drummer Gabba Santiago and their lead vocalist Isabelle Romualdez relocating to another country have forced their decision.

"Many of you have been confused and been asking if we've disbanded or will be on hiatus. The answer is: indefinitely," the band wrote. "As much as we’d love to continue making music together, LDR will be a challenge."

"So cheers to those who've been keeping tabs with us and been supporting our music. We hope we could share more with you guys in the future," they added.

Fools and Foes' self-titled album, which can be streamed online for free, has drawn positive reviews, with one noting how "fresh and multifaceted the band sounds."

The group was mainly associated with math rock and indie folk rhythms. Check out their song +63 below:
