Hey! My post count is still higher than yours, newbie. (Barely.)

Hard to believe it's been nearly three years since our last show.

We're really excited to announce our first festival appearances for this summer,
at which we'll be debuting material from our forthcoming new album...

You can catch us at...

June
29 - Peace & Love Festival, Borlange SE

July
13 - 15 - Melt Festival, Ferropolis DE

it will be all FOUR of us.

For more announcements watch the space in front of your face.

Russell

Nope. All four originals. Russell has been tweeting pics from the studio the past couple months, usually with Matt, Kele, Gordy or Russell in the background or walking out of frame. The pics have been mostly focused on their instruments.

I like bands that stay together.

Coincidentally, this is one of my favorite bands in the entire world.

Nice to see you around, fitzy. On this Saturday afternoon I think I'll hit up some choice tracks from each of the three studio albums.

Might have to just start it off with "Like Eating Glass." Just for fun.

So many good songs, but I still dig Ion Square the most.

Thanks. I like to pop in every once in a while.

And they're definitely in my Top 5 favorite bands.

2 of my faves. 'Like Eating Glass', 'Waiting For The 7.18' and 'Ion Square' are my favorites.

I love Bloc, but . . . sorry, not this song. It's not their worst, but for me, it's definitely in the bottom half.

I like Intimacy and Weekend in the City. Don't love either.

Silent Alarm on the other hand is in my top 10 or 15 for the decade.

And Kele's always kept his sexuality ambiguous, no? I remember maybe reading somewhere that he hasn't really let on because it shouldn't be an issue/talking point, since it's irrelevant.

All I've heard is that Kele is extremely difficult to interview.
