Hiatus is when someone or something goes on a break. Many people think one direction are still on hiatus , no no they actually broke up. Fall out boy went on hiatus for a while , and now dan and Phil are on hiatus .
'Hey so uhm we are going on hiatus! Bye for a few years'

A break from something for a certain amount of time. Most notably used by musical groups who break up with the intention of not staying broken up (even if they don't know how long they'll be that way).

List of notable bands on Hiatus at the time this definition was written:
Foo Fighters
Sonic Youth
Disturbed
Fall Out Boy
Fugazi
I saw the Foo Fighters at their last show before going on Hiatus.
