    It's cool to see them back. I really loved Wide Eyed and liked parts of Cinematographic. Would love to see a reunion tour of staples from this era of Victory Records emo:

    The Forecast
    The Junior Varsity
    The Audition (I don't know if they're actually dead but I haven't heard from them in a while)
    The Sleeping
    and June

    June was the best and one of my favorites from that era. So underrated. Make It Blur was such a great album.

    Love this band. I submitted this story after I was poking around their social media page. Would love me some Wide Eyed on vinyl. Surprised Victory hasn't just put out their back catalogue roster at this point.

    Cool, never got to see them live, probably never will. But that would be cool.

    Cinematographic was an awesome album.

    Same. I always feel like this band only existed to me because they never get mentioned. Wide Eyed hit me at the right time and the right place and it's still my go to for when I'm feeling a certain way.

    Seeing this news, even if I won't be traveling out there, is blowing me away. People apparently do care enough for them to come back for a run of shows. That's cool to hear.

    Park will be playing in Springfield and St. Louis.

    What an awesome time that would be.

    I saw that! Thinking about making the 5 hour drive from Milwaukee to it. Park was supposed to be working on a new full length but it's been pretty silent from their camp.

    Closest one for me will be Bloomington (and at the last place I saw them)...but I'll be in MN to do my kidney transplant work up. I asked the band about a possible live stream. That'd be pretty sweet.
