I really do love this guy.

Such an under appreciated artist.

You'll have to let us know how it is. Always wanted to check out Limblifter live.

Him and Matt actually did a couple cool and experimental demos together back in 2004. 

This is a video Matt released of him and Ryan working on a demo called Agoraphobe.

They also did another one called Seriously Serious. It's probably the most experimental work I've heard from Matt and has a really intense/urgent feel to it. Fantastic lyrics, imo, too: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xnejenNAgxk

Then, lastly, there was their masterpiece- Free Download: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o7c0JQZ2YF8 (I remember a few people got a bit salty when this song was released , lol 😆 )

I'd never heard of him, but thanks to this post, I've totally discovered yet another amazing artist that I'm kicking myself for not having heard of sooner. Thanks!

Haha, those songs are great.  Very cool that Limblifter's playing at The Rec Room in London.  Their whole Bellaclava album and then some.  $18 then yet, can't go wrong with that.

Went to the London show. First time seeing them.  They were great!  It was really cool how small it was, maybe 30-40 people at the most.  Got to meet Ryan and talk to him a little bit, plus got a picture with him.  He seemed very down to earth and appreciative.  Perty cool.

I will be there as well! Looking forward to this one for sure! Their Pacific Milk show at the Biltmore was a lot of fun.

Too bad they didn't make a tour stop in Calgary. I would have gone to see them for sure, just to hear Ariel vs. Lotus alone.

This song made it onto Ryan's solo album Irrational Anthems.  It's a bit different from the demo and doesn't feature Matt's vocals, but Matt has a writing credit on it. Ryan has a writing credit on The Devil's In Your Details and played guitar on that song as well as Oh Be Joyful from what I remember.

Here's the version from Ryan's album:

I listened to the LIMBLIFTER album I/O for the first time in a while today, and totally forgot Matt does some vocals on the song "Alarm Bells"!

Ryan also does vocals on Vancouver National Anthem if I remember correctly. I'm sure there is other work that the two have worked on that we've forgotten as well.

Well thanks to COVID-19, the vancouver limblifter show is postponed until Sept 13th. Super lame.

Well that's too bad.

I think it was someone else who did vocals on Vancouver National Anthem.

It sounds like they were gonna add more dates later so maybe they'll play in Calgary yet.

I just checked the liner notes and it's Pete Yorn on VNA.
