Bottomless Pit Announce Indefinite Hiatus


Bottomless Pit, the Chicago band fronted by former Silkworm guitarists Andy Cohen and Tim Midyett, is officially on hiatus. On July 24th, Midyett posted the following message on the group’s Facebook page:

Hi everyone—I would like you to know that Bottomless Pit is on indefinite hiatus. I wasn’t going to make a big thing of announcing it, but I do get inquiries as to our availability, and I finally decided it was best to make it official. We are all still good friends and pleased with what we have done. I’m making music now under the name Mint Mile, with Andy’s involvement. Likely Andy will get his own thing together at some point. I’ll post any updates on that front here. Can’t tell you how much we appreciate your interest. See you around. Very best, Tim
Bottomless Pit formed in 2005 after the death of Silkworm drummer Michael Dahlquist. They released three full length albums, including last year’s superb Shade Perennial on Comedy Minus One. Little information is available on Mint Mile at this time, but a Facebook page has been launched here.
