I'll believe it when I'm at the show and they get on stage.

Thats EXACTLY what I said yesterday when I got the little email from Spaceland with the listing in it. Im doing it like the last two times, Im waiting until like the day before or that day to get my ticket. The last two US tours, I was about to go buy my tickets both times and literally that afternoon they would announce "Oh sorry someones got a cold, tour is off!"

Just come out with it like Godflesh and tell us "Sorry touring is a bit of a pain so we're not really doing it ever again, but we will do the occasional high paying festival, or one off shows near our home." Quit building up my hopes every couple of years already. At least that first one they cancelled I got to see Unsane that year play all of Scattered, Smothered, Covered so that kinda wrapped up needing to see any more shows that year anyway for me.

I saw Killing Joke once in 2010 and Geordie's tone live was the best I've ever heard a distorted electric guitar sound. I know they're flaky, but if you do get them on stage it's going to be worth it.
Life...life...I know it's got its ups and downs.

In the someday, what's that sound.

Did anyone notice that Absolute Dissent got re-issued for Record Store Day? Seemed odd since it just (2010) came out. But maybe there was a high demand for it? Who knows.

Any of the first three are the best, my personal favorite is What's THIS For...! Unspeakable!

Redline, be prepared for Riot Fest. A few people on Reddit and KJ's Facebook page say that they are also playing a club show in Chicago for a televised performance. JBTV? lol

I also saw rumors of TJL playing at Riot Fest too, as they are in Detroit on the 14th with the rest of the weekend open. Oy vey.

I can't decide between the first S/T, the second S/T, Revelations, "Dirt....," Absolute Dissent, and Pylon. Their new shit is great.

C'mon, the first S/T...It's like the new Breeders lp. A fully formed egg of an lp.

It's done. No loose ends...
