just a warm-up last week in Austin, this week in Dallas, and Coachella (though maybe other festivals too). I think it's a smart way to see if you want to do more or not without committing too much in advance.

I think they're also set for Reading and a couple other overseas festivals. Basically I'm hoping for a tour because I'm not going to go to Lollapalooza or w/e just to see them.

me either. I never saw them the first time, and if my early afternoon hadn't been crazy I would have tried to get tickets for tomorrow night's show.

I saw them twice back in college, and they were excellent. The first one was by accident, I went to see The Get-Up Kids with no idea of who the opener was. There was about 20-30 people in the student union for the show and they just went nuts.

2 weeks pass...

Was reading an interview with Cedric and Omar and they flat out said the main reason they got back together was because "Coachella threw an absurd amount of money at us to play". I think I appreciate bands being honest about why they are doing these reunion tours.

do most bands actually make a lot of money on reunion tours vs just getting back together for the sake of it? every reunion isn't a megafest-throwing-money-at

I think they make decent money, I just meant that in ATDI's case that they're pretty open that it was all thanks to Coachella $$$. I wonder how much they made for just that festival.

not all reunited bands make the same amount of money, but it seems like nearly all of them make better money for those shows than they did back when they were originally together, or with whatever 'current' project they'd been focusing on before the reunion

like even if a reunited band isn't headlining huge festivals, they're probably selling out multiple nights at larger clubs or the same venues they'd struggle to fill before

Yeah, that's pretty much what I thought. I really would be curious to see the rates for Coachella though, because as far as I knew Omar was really, really against ever doing this.

doesn't scientology cost a lot

that's cedric tho, redact

Oh noes. Is Cedric really sucked into Scientology? They're also playing Lolla on Sunday. I just got a ticket for Fri, for Sabbath, Afghan Whigs.

Scientology explains why it took him three years to write the lyrics for the new album.

it does take a lot of time to cut and paste together random passages of dianetics and battlefield earth sci-fi jargon.

10 months pass...

they should've been massive. they were about to be. an exciting original rock band to bury all the numetal post grunge tribal tattoo nonsense early on. ugh whatever. they had a couple years ahead of them

I could never not see them as a dollar shop Nation of Ulysses, but they had a couple of fun tunes.

what is a good take on this band (where they came from and what they became)?

1 year passes...

So, this ANTEMASQUE album is really growing on me. Pop-prog with occasional hints of like El Gran Orgo-era ATDI. Pretty cool.
