Eh, the piece I submitted was so much better than this, partly because I knew the facts. There are only two songs on the split and they are both covers. Thrice does a cover of a Beatles song. This is the split that was supposed to come out in 2010 but never did. Nothing new.

Well I agree. I just saw MO post the picture of the artwork on their facebook page and hastily wrote up an article. None of the pages I read mentioned what the songs would be.

They were good when I saw them, but of course they only played like six songs. Their ep is incredible, though

None of these bands are post-hardcore. Thrice used to be.

EDIT: never mind, dude,I see that the article refers to then as post-hardcore. My apologies.

o'brother is cool and all but i've never quite understood the hype

even when i was supposed to see them on that tour with circa, every band that played that night was like "you guys are
missing out on o'brother they're fuckin amazing" blah blah

kinda glad they were playing a festival that night tbh. split should be cool but fuck some covers, man

they keep saying "split" so maybe all three bands are just breaking up through a fancy and deceiving poster announcement

According to Manchester's Facebook page, the Thrice cover is indeed "I Want You (She's So Heavy)", while Manchester/O'Brother are doing "Don't Speak" (not sure if it's the No Doubt cover or an original).
