Aly & AJ Took a Break From Music Because it 'Wasn't Fun... Anymore'

Aly & AJ took a ten year hiatus from music before coming back to release the retro pop hit “Take Me” — and now they are opening up about what inspired such a long break from the band.

“We were in a place where making music wasn’t fun to us anymore,” Aly Michalka told Billboard. “It felt like a business.”

They also didn’t have “radio support,” which made success difficult.

“Nobody was really playing Disney acts on the radio,” Aly continued. “When we were signed with Hollywood Records…we didn’t really have radio support over there during that time.”

“I think were also a little wiped out, just from you know touring a lot and, you know, being away from home and our dogs and our dad, and you know at that time we still lived in our family house together.”

They were only 16 and 18 when they decided to take a break, so it’s totally understandable that they needed a breather after so many years in the spotlight at such a young age.

We’re just glad to have them back!
