I really enjoy The Raven... but PT on hold ?  This is the band that put him on the map, for crying out loud !
 
When you can't (or won't) make the time for something, usually, it's because it doesn't matter that much to you anymore. 
 
It’s always conceivable that we could get back together in a year or five years, or 10 years.
 
PT fans, the dreaded day has come.  Wilson is no longer into PT, and is moving on.
Indefinite hiatus is another way of saying goodbye folks. Other PT members will go on with their musical careers, and IF Wilson ever wants to get the band back together, being the talented musicians they are, they'll be too busy to reform and will have moved on themselves.
 
Sad day indeed... I knew the sh*tty weather announced something sad !
 
 

Not so downhearted about it, frankly. PT always sounded better to me as a solo project rather than as a band (the exception being the brilliant Stupid Dream). Wilson's solo work should suffice for me (loved Insurgentes and am a bit indifferent to GfD, but at least it wasn't as bad as In Absentia, parts of Deadwing or the whole of The Incident. Still haven't heard Raven...).
Bigger on the inside.

Sounds like Steven doesn't plan on releasing any Porcupine Tree albums any time soon.Cry

From Prog Magazine:

Steven Wilson has confirmed that Porcupine Tree are on indefinite hiatus while he concentrates on his solo career.

He admits he doesn’t have time to pursue all the projects he’d like, and so he’s had to make a choice on which ones matter most to him.

And for now, it’s his latest album The Raven That Refused To Sing And Other Stories – meaning that Porcupine Tree and Blackfield must take their chances.

Wilson tells Something Else Reviews: “Blackfield has made a new record, though I’m not as involved with it as much as I once was.

“Aviv, my partner in Blackfield, wrote all of the songs, but I helped him to produce and record, and I sang on a few songs. They have some great guest singers, so Blackfield is certainly moving forward. The last thing I want to be doing is holding other people back.”

But he describes Porcupine Tree’s position as “slightly more complex,” explaining: “It can’t really happen without me instigating it, being the main writer and director.

“I don’t have time in my life to do that and do what I’m doing now. I guess I have made the decision, right now, to concentrate on the solo career.

“But that’s not to say the band has broken up or anything like that. It’s always conceivable that we could get back together in a year or five years, or 10 years. I really can’t say – there are no plans at the moment.”

Wilson recently told Prog of The Raven That Refused To Sing: “It’s still a solo album – but it’s become a band in its own right, and because of that, it hopefully has more of a sense of cohesion.”

Porcupine Tree’s last release was live album Octane Twisted in 2012, but the frontman earlier this year announced plans to release a number of tracks recorded when he used the title as his solo monicker
