30 Seconds to Mars may go on hiatus "for ten years".
The 'Hurricane' group - fronted by Jared Leto - have been worn down by touring and are considering a long break from music when their current commitments end later this year.
Drummer Shannon Leto told MTV Canada: "We've been touring a long time man. I mean, look at us. We're broken down, sugar. We're tired."
When pressed further if this could lead to the band quitting, Shannon added: "Nah, we'll probably just take a break for, I don't know, 10 years."
Jared added: "A decade always seems to take the edge off."
The singer and guitarist recently suggested the band may not write a follow up to third album, 'This Is War', released in 2009.
He said:"When I start a new record it ends up being a pretty involved affair; you need the time, energy and space to appropriately address it.
"We're talking about it right now, but you never know, there could not be another record. We're not bound to continue walking down a path unless we're really inspired to do so."
