    It was quite bittersweet, but I actually just spun TTWTWM for the first time in a while since it turned 5 years old on monday and i still love it as much as I always have. One of the few records I know nearly every word and out of the three LPs its definitely my favorite but they're all amazing imo. Such a great discography too, especially when you take into account all the splits/EPs (I might even rank Revelation as their best non-album track AND one of their best tracks period). I've been missing these guys tons since they ended things to say the least.

    If any band needs to reunite it needs to be them. The way they went out is such a shame. My favorite band by far. Every time I put on ttwtwm it gives me chills. That album is perfect

    Posted this in the Coward thread, but Jon was on Strange Nerve recently, he announced that his new solo project/stage name is going to be Creeks and that he aims to have some music out by the end of the year.

    Not to stir the pot too hard, but he actually did say that B&C might “play some shows”. No timeframe or location details. He lives in North Hollywood now so I wouldn’t necessarily expect it anytime too soon

    That album is seriously like... one of my favorite albums. It is really surprising to me that people don't seem to just absolutely adore it nearly as much as I do. I know that the fanbase in general for this band really loves the first album, and then around here I hear about a lot of Light We Made fans.

    At the very least, it would be nice to see them come back and do a proper farewell tour. That's the weird thing about bands from their era of popularity - whether it's them, Man Overboard, Seahaven, Transit... none of those bands did a proper farewell tour - although I realize Seahaven may actually have never broken up, who knows.

    If these guys wanted to exist in sort of a Moving Mountains type capacity that would be A-OK with me

    It’s not looking good as far as any type of reunion which makes me super sad

    Short summary for those who don't want to watch: not everyone wanted to be in B&C anymore and it sucks but he's come to terms with it. It also sounds like he really loved doing B&C which seems contrary to what folks reported about their last few tours where he seemed checked out.

    God this video killlllllls me. Been spinning Light We Made since the weather is turning here.

    I know the production on this gets a lot of flack but I love that every instrument is in the red.

    Miss this band. Light We Made is so good. Really been enjoying it lately. It only gets finer with age imo

    just wish we could get the full story ? It obviously has to do with the sound the band was taking.
    I think some wanted to be more rock and some wanted to go more mellow like their last record, seems
    like they couldn't get on the same page. its clear that jon is mad about it

    No man they just weren’t making enough money for it to be a viable thing anymore. These are people in their 30’s that are getting married and wanting to be able to like, buy homes and start families and stuff. There’s no “full story”. Any information being held from us is being held from us because it’s none of anyone’s business.

    Seriously dude you’ve gotta drop it. It’s literally been a year of this

    Who do you think needs who more?

    I love B&C, but I really just want to hear Jon sing over some rock music again.
