Ok, so in an effort to be socially and culturally aware, I posted the simplest political poll I could. I am actually interested in your political leanings though.
Also, there's a new feature where you can sort of bookmark favorite blogs you read:



In other news, yes, the EP still isn't out, but there's a reason, and it's a positive one. At this rate maybe the new AFI album will be out before the EP. Speaking of AFI, we're currently holed up in a rehearsal studio pumping out the jams. Wolfmother is recording next door. That guy can hit some stratospheric notes.

Thanks for the EP update!

Hoetwat said...

It's good to hear some news on the EP. I'm interested in this positive reason for delay.

But yeah. I picked Obama.

Anonymous said...

Really looking forward to some new material from you guys... could definitely use the pick me up. Yay Wolfmother, go Aussie go!

Alex said...

Album > EP

I'm excited to hear some new music!
Thanks for the update =]

Blaqk Elektrik said...

Did I hear correctly that Wolfmother lost one of their members?

And either way, CD or EP, it'll be great to hear some new songs.

Nicholas May said...

GG from beyond the grave.. will win. Only to yell "SCUM F*** VOMITOSE" and puke all on the other candidates.

Nicholas May said...

I should let you know, though; aside from my whole country handicappiness, I would vote for Obama (I'm in Canada)

boys.dont.cry37 said...

Awesomeness can't wait for new stuff!!!

I also from Canada would vote for Obama!

Finally you guys tell us whats up! This is good, very good. thanks muchly! I was worried.

Jade is it true that you have an account on vampirefreaks??

Charlotte said...

this leaves me in a heap of punctuation-free anticipation

Marcus said...

Can't wait.

I enjoyed your selection of pictures.

Karlye said...

I'm for Obama for various reasons that would take too long to explain.

Thank you so much for the update on the EP and album progress Jade! I'd want an album over an EP any day.

That's pretty sweet that Wolfmother is next door, that's gotta be some great jams to listen to.

Miraenda said...

I'm confused on the part about the new feature for bookmarking blogs you read as I don't see the feature on your blog, but I'm easily confused so no worries there.

I'm happy no matter what gets released, the album or the EP. I really appreciate the update on the musical front.

Finally, totally nothing to do with your post besides the fact you mentioned bookmarking, but Google has a new browser called Chrome that they released today. It's pretty cool. Sadly, it's on Windows compatible currently, but it is supposed to be cross platform soon (so able to run on Macs or Linux shortly).

Continued good luck on pumping out the new album :)

Yo,

alittle sad that the new EP is being pushed back. Is it just a collection of stuff that didnt make it on the last two records?.... well now i see where your going..... so the extra songs from the new album should be on it too. Why dont you just make another full length album so it can be like "AFI 2 (In face)", that would be cool. So hey if you ever get bored on the internets hit me up on myspace www.myspace.com/withinamile I am allways interested in your musical equipment, and ideas. thanks jade.


Oh, and btw i saw wolf mother back at cains ballroom not to long ago. I actually wasent to digging it. Oh wait nevermind that was revolution mother with tiger army.

oh btw x2, geoff is coming to oklahoma in sept with viva la hate. I must say that he did a great job with nick 13 in tiger army. but, im not feeling (personally) the new band has as much cachyness that tiger army had. But i am really glad its kinda the same genre its awesome. poor nick. hope tiger army is still going.


allright well ive rambled enough. Holla back if you can :D thanks jade


Stay fresh :D

Boo™♥ said...

WOW! So glad to get an update!
Hope that all of you aren't working yourselves to death though.

Sucks that we won't get the EP for now though, oh well. Can't wait until the Album is finished and released.

XOXOX

Anonymous said...

So who are you guys wanting to produce this next full length?

By Wolfmother, do you mean the guy that left the band but retained the name, or the other two guys? Each side of the rift is writing new material. Stockdale's shit will probably blow; however, I'm interested in other members' output.

Anonymous said...

Also, to the other anonymous, Viva Hate is fucking fantastic. Fucking. Key word there.

Taylor said...

thanks for the update.
im excited for new stuff.

bloodstainxx said...

I say Obama :]

Glad to know the EP and the album is hopefully out soon :]

Avalon said...

Yay, thanks Jade!

Mathew Ballard said...

Can't wait to get my hands on both Albums. But I got to see NIN perform Sunday. So I have some amazingness in my mind to hold me over for a little while. But, you guys better get on it.

P.S. I'm a Obama supporter.

Mathew Ballard said...

awokennightmare said...

I think McCain just blew his chances for office with his poor VP choice. Who are the racist and sexist people going to vote for now?

Ebon said...

Its really cool to see a celebrity intrested in our thoughts as the normal masses on our leanings. I'm over all a Liberal and an independant. But this election I will vote Obama over GG Allen. I Know I know GG would be great. He'd shit over every thing.

And Yay on EP news. I hope you all are doing well on the CD and all now.

Edvinas said...

oh my god its so cool cant wait for new Album and EP

ThisSideUp said...

All the Canadians want Obama to win! Epic. We'll have fabulous international relations with you Americans!

The EP thing doesn't make sense to me, but then I've never recorded anything in my life, so it wouldn't. Anywho, I'm super excited for anything new from you guys! Yay!

Is Wolfmother recording something that actually sounds original? Wasn't impressed with their past work...

follow the white rabbit said...

ha ha! The picture references are quite funny :)

on another note - i saw the explosion's video for 'here i am' yesterday for the first time and smith was skateboarding throughout the whole video. which was cool.

Zoé Aimee said...

Good to hear from you Jade and fantastic to get a little AFI update!

I'm not in the States but if I were I'd pick Obama, no doubt!

Crimson Butterfly said...

Arigato Jade-kun for the update, honestly I'm not really interested in politics. Especially when your friends dog agrees with who ever is right...don't ask, but I can't wait to hear for more updates Ja ne Ja ne(good-bye)....Ja Mata Ne(good-bye), Mata Ashita(see you tomorrow)

Vainglorious said...

You forgot Harvey Dent.

I am totally writing him in.

angelic_cries said...

GG Allin! XD he'll litterally shit on us! ...if he were still alive. It is time to have a dead president. Or how about you for president, I think you'd win.

Thanks for the EP news. =]

Rehearsal studio! =D

Kørrlej said...

That wolf is seriously frightening.
I like jams. And jam.

I'm not American, but I would vote for Obama because I have no idea and he dances on Ellen. Actually I just don't like McCain and is dumb French fry name.

Haras said...

Obama, without a doubt. I don't agree with just about everything McCain is for and he's kind of insane anyways.

Thanks for the EP update :)

Hari said...

Oooo Yes that is very good news, I was thinking about the EP the other day which is freaky. This has really made my day, despite it being 8 in the morning!

Ashleigh said...

Ooh, excitement. Waiting for new stuff is never fun, but waiting for new album > waiting for new EP.

Stupidartpunk said...

Dose it ever feel like it doesn't even matter who you vote for, there all in it for themselves.For power. Music (and art) is more important it will out last the politics.

ahlix.mah said...

Its good to finally hear from you again
:)

It sounds like everything is really starting to come together

Hope the suns smilin at ya

peace, xox


p.s I vote for obama only cos i hear about him the most..I'm infact aussie so i hav the mighty fine Kevin Rudd -_-

Stix said...

Fuck American poltics. In Australia it's always in the news, damnitt.

Wolfmother are great. I saw them at Andy Warhol's exbition (they played) on the last day. T'was funtimes.

leongyiting said...

Way cool. Can't wait for the album (and the EP). & Blogger ain't letting me see your polls. Rah.

Chelley said...

um, basically, i love barack obama a huge amount. but. you mention gg allin and... my love for you somehow increased. wtf is that?

I'm really glad to hear about the album||EP Can't wait to hear your new stuff.

Oh yeah, I don't think it would be relevant for me to pick an american cadidate seeing as I don't live there, the Obama guy sounds pretty good :]

I hope you get back on tour after you're done with the album[s]. Come back to New Zealand!!

lezah said...

I shall be patient. :D

Wolfmother's next door eh? They're awesome.

You guys, are most awesome. Thanks for the update! I'm excited.

cilliii said...

This is SOO good to hear.
Thank you soooo much for updates....

You have really no idea how happy this makes me right now!!!!!!

Though... hurry up in releasing new stuff!

You really rescued my day! :D

I love you && your awesomeness ôO

kisses && hugs

cilliii said...

btw. i would vote obama, but i'm from germany :]

frantic1 said...

Thanks for the update. We were begining to think the EP was with the BA video.
Poll results are interesting thus far. Obama needs to push youth voter registration.

Mina said...

awesome news indeed.. it'd be great to hear some new material from AFI and it doesn't matter really if it'll be EP or an album..
obama rocks! even though I'm super antipolitical creature..
right.. see ya, have lots of fun and soy milk up there..oh yeah and say hello to Munch =P

ps. heard bout Jerry.. I'm so sorry, man..
<3<3

ciel said...

Now I'm curious & want to know the reason behind the EP being pushed back.
Can't wait for the new stuff!

wendy said...

yay for the update Jade!!

I don't really follow the US politics, i don't even read about it in the papers...sorry.

So you say Wolfmother is recording next door?? Recently we (aussies) were hit with news that Chris and Myles have offically left the band, and Andrew was looking for new members to carry on Wolfmother. I am quite surprised to hear that Andrew was able to line up some people so quick. i haven't heard any news about it since the split.

umm yeah sorry about the long comment there :D

Anonymous said...

Dude! Don't tease us like that. At least tell us what the reason is. We're desperate from some fresh AFI tuneage.

Alright! Glad to hear about an album.

Always good to hear from you, Jade.

Mary-Jean said...

Ooooh. EP news. WOO. Album before EP? O_O; Wow. *dance* That must be fun to be nextdoor to Wolfmother, eh? (Yes that's my Canadianess shining through there with my little 'eh', eh?)

If I could vote and if I lived in the states, I'd vote for Obama. And apparently everyone else is too.

YAY! Can't wait to hear some new stuff!!

Of course they can't, they're drunk all the time.

Can't wait for either the album or the EP. Fantastic either way.

THANK YO?U!!!!!!
we needed news

CM said...

I still can’t make up my mind about the election. I can tell you this... I have seen Day of the Dead. In that movie, our commander and chief was black. I am concerned that if we elect Obama, Zombie Holocaust is nigh... While on the other hand, McCain seems like reanimated dead already...
In any case – GG seems like he would be great for foreign policy.
Enjoy your studio time. How’s the haircut?

kirstie said...

Well, I can't wait for something from Afi. I know it'll be great.

I also can't believe the vast majority here says they'd like Obama in office. Do you actually have any idea what he's going to do. Like raise taxes, for example? Thompson's speech last night was great. Be informed before you vote...goodness.

hello jade, since we want to win obama , for a change of mentality total.thanks by the information and ep album, everyone here hopes that in its next tour we viciten in ARGENTINA¡¡¡ esperamos que nos viciten

YazFace said...

How exciting! That way, the EP will be like, a special little something extra. Anyways, I love your picture postin'. I giggled way more than necessary at the awesome angry wolf. I'm for Obama, by the way.

Araceli said...

Ohai Jade! Thanks so much for the EP update it's really all I've been waiting for.

Oh and I picked Obama, though I am from Canadaland.

yograpefruit said...

Ah i'm so excited to hear that EP!
Wolfmother...ouch.

helen099 said...

Oh, dear Jade, I ‘m so glad you wrote. I hope you read this because I’m worried after hearing that “Ether” song (which I thought was indescribably bland and MOR).

Jade, I know you guys want the golden ring--we all do--but please don’t dilute AFI to get it. Let the golden ring come to you, if it was meant to be. (Playing in Madison square garden won’t bring real happiness.)

Don’t forget the Fire, Jade. You are not “A Vanilla Ice Cream Inside.” You are “A Fire Inside.”

And don’t let Davey stop screaming.

Thank you, sweet Jade. And I will wait optimistically for the new music.
♥♥♥♥

Col said...

thanks for the update jade!!can't wait to hear the new music. btw, is there a certain reason u chose the picture of the mom holding her baby?

Danii. said...

Oh Jade.
The Wolfmother thing is hilarious.
Thanks for the update though, it's greatly appreciated.

I picked Obama.
Oh, look my dad just put on the news.
Guess who's there?

derek said...

Thanks for the update on the EP. I wonder how the material from the Sing the Sorrow sessions will mesh with the new album if the EP is released after the LP. New insight into the new albums style, perhaps?

Mia said...

Thanks for the update!! Can't wait for all the new music! I'm sure whatever it is will be awesome. *manical grin*

Say hi to the rest of the band for me! XD

And what do the pictures mean?? I'm so confused.

PEACE OUT

missing you

NightShade said...

Thanks for the EP news, Jade. I was kinda worrying about a trend there - missing video, missing ep....

Great to know it's all for the right reasons. Of course, you've just made us all the more eager. Tease!

allmylove said...

its been a while! i am glad to see and update though :D it always makes my day especially when it has to do with afi news ;) i am extremely happy to hear that i will have some new afi tunes repetitively running through my brain very soon
I haven't really heard much of wolf mother but i'm loving your metaphoric pictures
xoxoxo

Ewica said...

It doesnt matter who we vote for J.M. is goin to win bcuz hes Bush's friend and their both doing things right now that most of you dont know about which I dont want to mention, but anyways he is gonna cheat just like Bush did that way they can finish their buisness.

I'll look at the bright side. More antisipation makes an album all the more sweet when you get to hear it! Just dont wait too long, making the album too sweet, or I might try to eat it and then I might die.

a nephilim giant said...

I dont have to worry about the nephilim returning in a few yrs as some say they will, bcuz if they do and they come to my house Im just goin to play them some afi and instead of eating me, and they'll dance the night away while I make my escape.

Cherol said...

Obamabama. Seeing him at the DNC solidified my decision.
I think McCain is one taco short of a combination plate.

eMMe said...

I'm just surprised that you were even in to this whole political fuckwittage (yes, I said it) so sick of those "i appove this message" like what good is that going to do you during the debate. **sigh**

You should do another poll and include " I'd rather pencil in kermit the frog" <--- he could do no worse. (hahahahaha)
Oh and thank you so much for the AFI update - didn't want to think that you guys was slacking

Susan said...

GG probably would have managed the past eight years better...Definitely voting for Obama, I can't take another GOP prison sentence. Bitterness and spite aside, I actually think Obama would do the country good.

Thanks for the AFI update...always welcome news. Can't wait to hear the end result and see it live!

Jordana said...

I honestly dont know anything about amer... ok i was gonna say american politics but i'd be lying, so i dont know anything about Any politics!!!
But I chose Obama coz when I'm crawling around on teh shop floor on a Saturday morning trying to organise the papers at 6.30 in teh morning (that hour should be made illegial btw) and i see pictures of him, he always smiles!!!
like this :D
lol yes i am sad and dont get out much!!!

haha gg allin as president, that would fucking awful!!! though that is who i voted for in your poll. he would fling his shit at his rivals(if he were still alive). =D

samanthaadele said...

GG Allin!
We could only imagine the wonderful things he would do for us.

Los Angelista said...

New AFI record is all good. Take your time, do it right!

I sure hope everybody in the band, and everybody over 18 reading this blog, is registered to vote... and actually goes to vote on election day.

Anonymous said...

So, basically we've waited 9 months for the fucking EP news, just so you come in and say "there's a good reason"?
What's that good reason? Davey making faggot clothing, or Hunter reuniting with his defunct lame band?
And now it supposedly coming after the new album? When is the new album coming out? "soon"? What the FUCK happened to the "it will be out soon(ish)?

Fuck your bullshit and fuck your fucking sell out label.

Hevv. said...

You're brilliant.

Anonymous said...

yes finally!! I hope we get the album before the ep now!! stoked!! Oh and jade you know The Living End of course right? I just ordered their new album White Noise from Aussie and its awesome!! you should check it out and let me know what you think! You should let them tour with you guys, they kick ass live and i cant wait to hear their stuff live. They need all the help they can get so take them on the toad with you!! You might learn a thing or two from Chris's awesome gee-tar skills!

go new album go!!

Anonymous said...

Oh and for all you dumbasses who dont know what the good reason is. its bc they are almost done with the new album so they are gonna put more tracks on the ep from the new album session and from the past two albums. So its gonna be way better then it would have been, so quit your whining about it and posting hate blogs on jades site bc you know your mad bc you dont have a new afi album yet. The last person is an idiot for saying fuck your sell out label.

Saying "omg their almost done with the new album!" is the fucking dumbest thing I've ever read. Didn't you fucking read they are REHEARSING? So they can go to the studio and not fuck up.

So please stop being a fucking poser, fanboy, etc and shut the fuck up bitch

OMG! thanks for the update! i was bout to die for another update and this one was a GREAT one cause its bout the EP!

Are the pictures meant for Wolfmother and the broken glass for his high pitches? im just guessing

sullenriot said...

My vote goes to GG!
But since he won't be able to make it...I'll have to pass the vote to Obama.

Maya said...

Hey Jade, it's been awhile! Good to hear from you. And news about new stuff ;) Yes, I can't wait to hear new AFI, a new sound, a new direction... But I'm really pissed off people getting rude and even agressive towards you because you didn't updated on the EP for awhile and/or because you said "soon" back in February... I tell them "yeah...so what? Wait." I say they should just shut up and wait cuz you haven't any obligations towards us. That's my own opinion and I wanted to share it.

Anyway, love the pics reference.
And even though I'm from Canada, I picked Obama.

It's amazing to see all the Obama supporters on here! Could the reason be why you are all Karl Obama Marx supporters because you watch too much MTV and vote for who they say is "cool," or are you all truly in favor of socialism? (I can't wait for Barack to win...I've always wanted to learn Russian.)

all you people saying you're from canada, but would vote for obama... anyone have a room i can crash in if mc cain wins?

Rina said...

Personally, I don't feel too strongly for either candidate. But I voted for McCain in your poll. I know everybody believes he'll be another George Bush. I do not feel that way.
I also feel that Obama is offering a lot of empty promises about change. But his definition of change has been very vague. I don't like him much and I think I'd choose experience over charisma.
Great to hear about the album!

Hello, Mr. Puget. I'm one of you fan in Indonesia. It's really nice to know that you have a blog. I thought artists are too busy to write such things (yeah..you're the un-ordinary one).

McCain 08! McCain sucks and all but he is 10 times better than obama... All these idiot kids who can't vote are supporting obama because they are brain washed andt can't decide yet for themselfs... If you knew... HONESTLY knew anything about politics, you would know that obama is a weak inexperienced worthless piece of crap... Who took no political science in college, never served in military, an is just a jr. sen... He has no foresight and not a real plan... ps go old style afi... itd be sweet

I can't think of a positive reason for delaying the EP, but since it's you, Jade, I'll trust that there is one.

New album:

My breath has been bated for some time now, however, I am not a fickle fan, and art is not to rush. Looking forward to it...

Politics:

Saw NIN at Red Rocks on Tuesday... badass artist + badass venue = Nirvana...rocking out to "Head like Hole" when I could have been home watching the Republican convention on the tube and maybe catching some impromptu PTL action in the bargain. DAMN! What was I thinking?

I picked Obama. I think he is more in tune to the lower class people, because he has little experience in the pork barreling that most politicians do.
I think his ideals to help put more focus on America is good. I am tired of America helping other countries while puting our needs on the shelf. Once we take care of America, then we can save the rest of the world.
You are only useful when you are healthy. Cut off a leg and you can't work. And right now America seems to be the proverbial one legged man in an ass kicking contest, and losing too.
Have a great day Jade.

I'd really like to know who your voting for.
I'm supporting Obama.
I register people to vote everyday.
This year is a very important year to vote.
I hope everything is going swell.

Kayleigh Puget said...

Jade, I love your visual representations at the bottom of this entry. They had me in stitches, especially the shattering wine glass. You are hilarious, don't forget that and go off the rails or anything.

I'm sorry.

I'm in a really strange mood today and just feel like chatting away to you as if you're an old friend of mine. Which, in a sense, you probably are. Shut up. Anyway, I can't wait for the new AFI album and if it's coming out before the EP I will positively die of excitement.
Don't be alarmed, I spontaneously combust often when it comes to AFI. So yeah..

WHEN ARE YOU IN ENGLAND AGAIN!?!?!


Cheers and much lurrrve.
Kayleigghhhghghghh xx

Obama, just so my father can be proved wrong.

Thanks for the update.
Wolfmotherrrr

esperanzagomez said...

ooo we are all so excited about this GAHH!
and i also picked obama, who are you rooting for?

XxDancerXofXmiseryxX said...

So ironic. Damn it now I feel bad! I was just telling my friend about how much you love to 'tease' us about EP's coming out and how they don't...and now I found this! DAMN IT!

Anyway, I can't wait to hear some samples of what might becoming up in the AFI world of Musik! I am assuming it should be stellar seeing as it IS after all by the greatest band in the world! :D (well in my opinion anyway...but still!)

carla said...

s'ok..i'm not particularly fond of either candidates a whole bunch, but i'd rather see Obama's face for the next four years than old man McCain. i say we bring back Clinton. Bill, not Hilary.

anyway, i'm excited for the new album. and that's dope you're rehearsing next door to Wolfmother. i love them. but not as much as AFI, of course.

aileb said...

This made my day,I'm so excited and can't wait!

chaoskittenxo said...

OBAMA FOR PREZ!!!!! even though i live in ireland... i just had to say that! *laughs* thanx for the update on the album though sweetie... didn't wolfmother break up though? *confused*

Yay!

I'm voting for McCain.

Désirée said...

That's wonderful! I cannot wait for it to come out. Me and my friends have bought the AFI albums in newest to oldest order and it really gave us a good look at the evolution and differences between each one of them. Always so original, and I am certain that this will be unique as the others. I wish you health, wealth and success, (which you already all have, and hopefully will always have, all of you).

with all due respect,

D.B.W

Sarah May said...

Yeah, I'd vote for Obama as well, if I was both of age and lived in the US. =]

Thanks for the update! And actually thanks as well for the last two -- I've been ignoring your blog as of late D; Sorry!

PS Awesome choice of pictures. srsly.

Woot! Go Obama. who r u rooting 4 jade? Oh and about the EP, take as much time as you guys need cuz your music rox my sox.

Anonymous said...

Hi Mr. Jade. I've never posted a comment on something before. Anyways, this is hella late, but you mention in interviews that you would work on Blaqk Audio material on your laptop. What kinds of 'ware do you use? I assume it's extensive with plug-ins and what not, but I was only curious...

...I picked McCain.

sydney said...

OK, i no this has nothin to do wit wut u postesd(i already commented it), but did u no they still play Miss Murder on FUSE! I'm actually watchin right now! I think its awesome u guyss are still on tv!
Hopefully a new video from u guys will come and be even better than Miss Murder!

With MUCH <3,
sydney

Rissa said...

Yo, Jade.
I am so happy to hear that the EP is still comming out. I got scared for a couple of monthes there.
Really. Not joking.
I almost had a mental breakdown.

Your fans love you.
Tell Mr. Havok I said hi.
And don't forget Mr. Burgan and Mr. Carson!

Anonymous said...

wow. what a complet idiot the person who told me to go let a dog fuck my anus is. thats such a good one, how long did it take you to conjure that up? Who goes on a band members blog to bitch about their album not being out yet and call them sellouts? if they are such sellouts then why do you care so much as to go on their blog and tell them how angry you are bc the epp/album isnt out yet? Your an idiot.

Shy Boys Win said...

Sydney,

Of course they still play that video! It's a mainstream song, with face value lyrics that all the emo scene enjoys!

Eric said...

Cannot wait for the new album! Is there a shot for it to be released in 08? Im going to assume no but I can dream. As for the poll, Obama all the way. 8 years of fucked up Bush policies is enough. We need change.

Hi Mr. Jade,
How do you feel when an anonymous user posts a less than happy (or blatantly angry)post? Anyway, to the other people and their comments: I'm glad no one is attacking (non-debating attacks)other people's political views, but remember: If attacked, go for their grammar! And for Jade: I read books. You sometimes say "Read a Book" in interviews. I think many people should read books...

Of course, it's great about the album news. I think it'll be better than some are expecting, bringing it up to "MothaFuckinDope", according to Rotten Tomatoes.

Are you guys at cherokee studios hollywood? cause wolfmother are rehearsing overe there at the moment..interesting

Kayleigh katastrophe said...

Thank God it's a positive reason. I'm on the verge of insanity waiting for this thing! Ahaha, take your sweet time though. (:
& Obama for the win, please. <3

i was waiting for the debates and might have considered mccain, but then he announced his vp choice and sunk his own ship...

i understand controlling our wildlife populations, but it seems palin is out to eradicate the whole of wildlife until we all have predator fur covered walls... while everyone else was saying "palin who???", i was pretty much busy spitting fire!!

all you need to know about palin: http://www.defendersactionfund.org/newsroom/sarah_palin.html

eliza said...

finally, an update :D

can't wait to hear the new stuff. am totally stoked just waiting for em. gahh.

my vote goes to obama. and i'm malaysian. gahhhh.

any_mouse said...

Would the positive reason be anything along the lines of turning the EP into a full album of B-sides and rarities? If not, you guys should consider putting out an album like that. "Synesthesia" is one of my favorite songs, and I'd love to give you your 99 cents for it, but iTunes won't sell it to me. I even tried iTunes UK, but they wouldn't let me buy it 'cuz I'm in the US. Darn. I guess I owe you some cash. If I ever meet you, I promise I'll be good for it. I'll even pay in coins so the four of you can split it evenly, get yourselves something nice.

Everyone should at least give this a quick read. It seems Americans have lost touch with what it means to be American.

Hey! Thanks for the update. I'm glad to hear of musical news. I've been wondering when we'd hear more about that, oh so mysterious EP. ;)

Well either way I hope we get some new tunes soon. I've missed you boys.

Hope all else is still running smoothly for ya. <3
