    I'm assuming the re-release means we probably won't get a new full-length in 2017.

    D'oh! Prestigious

    Hoping for more new music this year, especially seeing as I had listened to those amazing live versions of Funeral Pyre like 1000 times, and for starters every change made me feel a bit uncomortable, but after hearing it a few times I already truly love all of those new tweaks in the performance.
