    old setlists have a bunch of weakerthans stuff so i'd probably choose to go to a tour no mater what

    Love me the Weakerthans but couldn't get into John's first solo album at all. Hoping this catches my ear because he's such a fantastic songwriter

  11. I've never anticipated a song more based on the title alone than "Virtute At Rest."

    My cat of 16 years is probably going to die shortly after this comes out. Depending on what that song is it might be very cathartic or it might break me.

    Here's John playing the (beautiful) title track during what appears to be some sort of hippie camp counselor gathering.

    Looks like he's touring as John Samson and the Winter Wheat. What do you guys think their setlists will look like as far as Weakerthans vs. his solo stuff?

    So Google has the track times and Virtue clocks in at 1:36. It's so short!
