Disclosure Will Be 'Taking Some Time Off' in 2017

After seven years of whirlwind success, Disclosure's Lawrence brothers (Guy and Howard) are taking some well-deserved time off.

The young, hugely influential duo changed the course of dance music with its debut LP Settle, moving the whole scene toward a garage / house revival that paved the way for acts like Duke Dumont and Flume to rise toward the top ranks. They helped build the careers of Sam Smith and AlunaGeorge with massive breakout hits “Latch” and “White Noise.” In 2015, the brothers released Caracal, a sophomore effort that featured pop stars The Weeknd, Miguel, and Lorde.

In its seven years, Disclosure started a touring festival brand called Wild Life, worked with Mary J. Blige, and simply became full-grown adults while establishing their super-successful career -- gifted and musically mature as they were, the brothers were only 15 and 18 when they started.

Now, they're ready for some time off the road and out of the studio. Disclosure took to Twitter to announce it will continue with Wild Life and a few other projects in 2017, but “For the most part however – we're going to be taking some time our and engaging in some much needed rest.”

Disclosure does promise to return, but did not specify when that would happen. Billboard Dance reached out for further comment. Read the full announcement below.
