    Come back!

    .. anyone have any ideas what the hell is happening with Ian's new project The Gentle Hits? It's been a long time since any updates.

    Last I heard they were mastering a new record, but that was also October 2015, so hopefully we get some good news soon!

    This thread needs some more posts/love.

    their two full lengths are two of my favorite albums.

    I still want to know what the fuck happened to The Gentle Hits (Ian Metzger's new band)

    @spencpants sorry for nitpicking, but would you mind editing the title to "Dear and the Headlights" please? Thanks

    Nah. I always made it D&TH when I'd go to shorthand, versus DATH. Personal preference (I really like ampersands!).

    @spencpants ugh that makes it so confusing and funny looking. But that's fine.

    The Gentle Hits out November 18th!

    Wish this was being released on vinyl. Really just happy to be getting the record though.

    The album is apparently an hour and three minutes.

    I cannot begin to describe how excited I am for this.

    Those two DatH records are a couple of my most listened to records of the last ten years.

    I actually went to the album release show of Small Steps, Heavy Hooves. Spoke with Ian before the band because there were hardly any people there. They even played "Run in the Front" for me, which was really cool of them.

    well now that is cool. Next time tell him the guy he played Run in the Front for at the album release show for Small Steps, Heavy Hooves is stoked for the new record ha.

    Hopefully we get a single soon.
