  1. Big fan of this song and the video. Definitely has a “feel” to it. So looking forward to the album!
  2. Love it. Parts of it sound very LOTGA-ish and others are reminiscent of Hospital Music. Kinda enjoy how there’s very little info about the album coming out...like in the old days before the internet
  3. Hard to believe that 20 years ago this month (Sept 14th to be exact) is when Beautiful Midnight was released. Man, do I feel old now lol An album that lived up to and exceeded expectations....I still remember where I bought it, opening it up and seeing the monkey mask on the CD and the little words “hidden” in the liner notes booklet printed in clear ink (if that makes any sense), how I listened to it, what songs really hooked me, and how it was the soundtrack to my life then and marked some significant changes in my life. Thx to Matt & crew for that album - such a masterpiece.
  4. Went to the Regina show last night - Matt really seemed to be enjoying himself. Been to almost all of his tours but one of the few I missed was the acoustic tour from a few years ago. No new tracks added to the set list last night (I don’t think) but we did get 4 songs in the encore which I think has happened only one other time thus far. Hope I can continue to see him perform for decades to come, such a remarkable talent.
  5. They were also set to tour as part of a festival in mid-late September and then Sept 11th happened and it was cancelled....
  6. +1 to the MG customer service team...they were quick to respond to my emails. Just waiting for the whites to show up in the mail any day now
  7. Same here...white sticker on the outside but black Avalanche vinyl inside. Good news is so far AOB sounds great. The beginning of Advertising is totally meant to be on vinyl :)
  8. Not seeing a solo acoustic show...
  9. Wow...they killed that performance! (Not surprised)
  10. Maybe this is old and this is just the first time I'm seeing it - but new footage from the Danforth Music Hall show with "Load Me Up"....check out Stu's solo with a drill:
  11. "I’ve lasted longer than almost all of my contemporaries treading a fine line between playing new material, old material, and hits. It’s something that I can’t wholly alter based on the views of maybe 10 people. Not when those 10 or 20 people account for less than 1% of an audience." Agreed. Bottom line is that Matt is a wonderfully creative artist who many of us have supported for many years, and I for one will continue to do so. He's also gotta do what he needs to do from a financial perspective. Which reminds me....I need to go buy some vinyl from his online store now :)
  12. Boy Who Could Explode and Great Whales were pretty impressive live....would love to see those songs come back again. And I gained a new appreciation of the song LOES after seeing it on tour. Wish I could find a video of it somewhere.
  13. Biggest regret? Not getting LOES and Avalanche on vinyl. And missing the acoustic tour from the early 2000’s.
  14. I get it. I finally get it now. It's taken a few listens but the whole album makes sense now. The fade-outs, the strings, the 80's sound of the guitars, everything. It's a bit of a departure - kind of like LOES which has now become one of my favourite albums after initially being put on the shelf for a bit. Well done Matt, Stu, Blake, Peter, Warne and everyone else. To have created something like this that will last forever is quite a feat. Matt - I hope you are able to make it through this difficult personal time. Your songs mean more to us fans than you'll ever know. Yes, there are the casual fans who just know the hit singles. But for the rest of us...those of us on The Bored...your music reaches deep inside of us. You've somehow been able to articulate through your music what each of us has felt day in and day out for so many years now. Something that we can't articulate. As I sit at home by myself on a dark, cold Sunday evening listening to this album over and over again, I don't feel alone. Somehow - buying your music and merch and going to your concerts just doesn't seem to be enough to repay you. I hope you know how much we all appreciate your artistry...and how your music has carried each of us through our own individual storms. One foot in front of the other...
  15. Finally found the CD @ Walmart yesterday...the only store in town that still sells CD's....
