Genre-blending Detroit rocker troupe Wilson is calling it a day -- for now, at least.

The quintet has announced an "indefinite hiatus...hanging it up for the unforeseeable future." It will play a final night on Dec. 28 at the Crofoot complex in Pontiac, including a show on the Crofoot Ballroom and then another set in the smaller Pike Room, where Wilson will play its debut album, "Full Blast F*ckery," in its entirety.

"Every story comes to an end," guitarist and co-founder Jason Spencer says in a statement. "This show is a way of closing the book. We hope this night serves as a memorable way of closing out the past decade of relentless touring, roller coaster rides of events and an endless amount of memories. This isn't for us. This is for all the friends we've made along the way who made Wilson more than a band."

Wilson released its third and most recent album, "Tasty Nasty," during 2018.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, Nov. 8, via Ticketweb.com. Tickets for the Ballroom show are $12 advance, $15 day of, and $15 for the Pike Room set, which includes a CD copy of the "Full Blast..." album. A pre-party that afternoon, beginning at 4:30 p.m. is $20.
