    Really excited about this release, especially after reading about what the liner notes will entail. I'm also excited about listening to these songs in that order... I'm always intrigued by greatest hits releases that don't do things chronologically. It's like the band went and made a mixtape of their favorite songs.

    Also pretty stoked on the upcoming tour!

    Was hoping for new music but I’ll take a few unreleased tracks and a tour. I haven’t seen them since 2007 when they did the “Taco Bell Menu Tour” with the three of them also performing as The Falcon and Sundowner. “Same shitty ingredients in a different order!”
