He said "his band" and since apmd is a side project of his with him not being so much as a founding member of Converge I imagined it was that

but, he later posted a comment on that post saying if he couldn't convince them he would "just get holograms of Nate, Kurt and Jake and play around with the cd", so

I posted that a few days ago, I kind of want them to play it
but on the other hand, I feel like jacob needs a reason to do it again
I don't really think he wants to go through it all over again

Digging: Unwound - Leaves Turn Inside You

At least half of the album is near-mainstay on their playlists so I don't think it'd be a problem lol

umm it's not actually, they only play Concubine and The Broken Vow and maybe some other song from the album here and there, like Heaven in her arms

they played concubine, title track and homewrecker when i saw them, it ruled

and playing the whole thing front to back is completely different. it would take so much energy and focus, especially the second half where things get all cohesive and basically never let up... plus the emotional weight of the album for Bannon is probably very heavy.

Digging: Weezer - Everything Will Be Alright in the End

hence why I said "near"

They almost always play those two songs you mentioned, and from what I've seen and told they play the first half of the album pretty frequently, except for Distance (Which apparently they didn't play like at until a few years ago)

They've never played either of the "phoenix" songs tho, and they almost never play Thaw or the title track, also why said "half"

"and playing the whole thing front to back is completely different. it would take so much energy and

This true although Bannon is the kind of person who lets all the anger and negative energy inside of
him go out when on a concert, he said it himself, because he doesn't like "walking around with a lot
of negative energy, so it's kind of like an exorcism of sorts"


Granted, though, I doubt anything going on with him today would be bad enough to warrant so much
energy out like that, and I wouldn't want something bad for him, and even if I did I'd want them to
make another record like this, not a live performance that I wouldn't be able to go to anyway lol

Atleast he's married now but he says he's still angry about alot of things, the fact that he sudders everytime he sees himself in the mirror, that the earth is constantly trying to purge people off of it everyday etc etc

Yeah, before that I knew nothing about him, and now I know about him jumping off bridges as a kid and shattering his knee, being bed ridden for 6 months and gaining 50 pounds. I kinda feel like watching it again now lol

I watched like 10 times just for the way it was shot, it's beautiful looking and i'm a bitch for that kinda thing lol


I like how he's not really an overconfident nor even an under confident type of person, he's just kinda... "Ok this is what I can do, it's not a lot but I'll give a shot" type of guy

Kinda funny he originally wanted to be the bass player so he wouldn't have to be paid attention to, and now he's the front man of one of the biggest and most influential bands in hardcore. I kinda forget how that came about, maybe he didn't say

He doesn't say how it happens, he just says he doesn't like his look and that it's ironic since he's the frontman and shit


That's one thing that kinda bugged me though, I mean when you're in a band, you kinda have the expect the possibility that you could get famous, and as the frontman you'd have to see your face a lot

I mean I'm sure he never expected to be so huge and no one really should, but still. Doesn't matter much though, just a pet peeve

I know what you mean, he is a very unlikely frontman but does so much with so little. And somehow does an awesome job, also with a little help from Nate

Why just Nate? you mean as in backing vocalist and stuff? I think Kurt has been backing vocalist more times than Nate lol
