look up any word, like seattle snorkeler:
 
1.
when a band doesnt know when they are gonna get back together and perform or release another album
Blink-182 are on an "indefinite hiatus" so they can spend some more time with their families

A fancy term for 'break up'. Bands use it to think it will soften the blow on their fans, when they infact know the harsh truth.

Can also be used when you don't believe anything will ever get done
Ex. 1: Blink.182 and Sleater-Kinney say they're on 'indefinite hiatus', but everyone knows they've broken up...

Ex. 2: Pete Wentz says that Release The Bats 2 has been put on 'indefinite hiatus'. He might as well say it's never going to be released.
