    Nooooo fuuuuuck. Last album had a few gems (Lighthouse). I listen to MTB almost every day. I feel they never blew up like they should have. I figured they would at least do an omni tour before a fairwell tour. Oh well. See u on 10/25 gents!

    They had a good peak during Planet of Ice era, selling out decent sized venues. Seeing them in a half empty venue for the Planet of Ice 10-year tour bummed me out. I'll make sure to get the crowd moving for them one last time in SF.

    Sad to see them go, but I will 100% be at that chicago date.

    Thats a damn good one. Definitely my favorite band whose name refers to a blow job.

    Also folks they did post a "new" song online called Fair Enough. I remember hearing this live a few years ago and assume its a B-side to Voids. I hope the EP had a few new songs or at least a gem or 2.

    Really sorry because I'm going to miss them a lot, but I did feel a bit special yesterday to see the leaked Toronto show before it got pulled before the press release. Absolutely will not not miss the tour, especially since Caspian is opening!

    Fair Enough is pretty cool, if it's a Voids b-side then it should have 100% made that album

    What’s this about their band name being a reference to a BJ?

    Sad as they were a staple band for my youth, but they are including Austin and at a decent venue this time around so i have that going for myself, which is nice.

    Menos El Oso made me dip my toe in the water, but OMNI is what made me dive in for a full plunge.

    One of my all time favorite bands. I will be at Detroit show.

    D'oh! Prestigious

    Bad news ehh, not happy about it for sure. But also could somehow see this happen at some point, well. Tour with Caspian and Tera Melos, lovely! ;d ;d

    D'oh! Prestigious

    Oh the song is really decent! and it does sound like it could fit on Voids. I'm sure the EP will be solid!
     
  23. Still not too keen on Voids -- I'd call it their weakest album by far -- but this band meant a lot to me growing up and I'm sad to see them go.

    Was wondering the same thing. No idea where to find the alleged "Facebook" presale code either.
