Phish star Trey Anastasio is taking a break from recording the band's new album to embark on a solo tour.

The rocker is currently in the studio working on the group's forthcoming Wingsuit record, their first in four years, but he is going on a brief hiatus to hit the road on his own with the Trey Anastasio Band.

The U.S. tour, which will mark the first time the band has played since 2005, will kick off its tour on 28 January (14).

Before Anastasio goes on his solo tour, Phish is set to play four sold-out shows at New York City's Madison Square Garden, starting on New Year's Day (01Jan14).
