    Interesting to note that it does appear they will be touring this year, as well!

    30k is so aggressive on their part. I’ve seen them in off markets where the draw was under 100 people (and face value was like 30 bucks). I have a large contingent of Failure friends and we were talking about renting out Johnny Brenda’s in Philly and trying to get 50 people to drop like 700 each. But at that point, is it even worth it?

    If the ask was more reasonable (like 10k), I would totally do it and host in my living room. But 30k is way optimistic. Shit, I almost rented Travis Meeks back in the 2000’s for like 3g’s. And technically his commercial high water mark was higher than Failure. Granted, he probably would have stolen my furniture and definitely my narcotics.

    perhaps their rate is so high due to their "artists artists" label?

    i dunno talking out my ass there, but it would be a fun idea to have them play a private show.

    Dont forget the extremely forgettable album art! Meh. But again, still VERY MUCH looking forward to this and will be more than happy to give this band my money again.

    If you would've asked me 10 years ago if I thought I'd see Failure coming back into the music scene, I probably would've thought you were insane. It makes me happy seeing that not only has their fan base more or less come back full-force to support them, but by now, shit - they're such a busy bunch that it's like they never stopped in the first place.

    Agreed - regarding the price tag. But just throwing this out there: If plans go underway, I'd absolutely be willing to make a trip from Kansas to that show and pay a share of whatever. I've ALWAYS wanted to do something similar and I feel like it would be a special enough experience to justify the cost. It would all come down to timing and whatnot of course, but definitely keep us posted and I'd think at least one or two of us would interested. The more people you can get, the less we'd individually pay. But fronting 30 g's? Oof. It'd take a braver soul than I to initiate that risk.

    Interesting that they are still reworking old stuff like Pennies, I Can See Houses, Petting The Carpet.

    I'd absolutely love a Golden rework somewhere along the line, that song is great.

    Sweeeeeeeet! I love this band, and they’ve definitely still “got it.” The Heart is a Monster was outstanding, and the last tour was, for lack of a better word: “fantastic.”

    I pre-ordered the signed double LP. I kind of want the lithograph, too, but I’m running out of wall space (and I’ve already got a signed tour poster from the last time they were in Phoenix).

    Can't wait! Pre-ordered the vinyl and will be anxious to check out each EP as it comes.

    What are the odds of the pledgers getting the EP early? Ready to hear the new version of Pennies.

    Doesn't seem like it's happening... Most (the ones i've backed) usually release it a little early for the backers. Think they might have done that for the last album. Hopefully midnight.

    FAILURE - reunion in 2014

    These guys can do no wrong. Short and sweet, but solid. The opening track sounds like NIN’s Demon Seed having sex with Autolux. It doesn’t really sound like anything in the Failure canon, but it’s badass.

    “Paralytic Flow” and “Pennies” are classic Failure, and would have sounded right at home on THIAM.

    Segue 10 makes me want to hear track 1 of EP 2.

    Delicious.

    Yeah, they really can't do any wrong. Dark Speed is a very interesting one. Not sure if I'm listening a failure song, an autolux song or a Beck song. Onward it's the Failure we all know love. Bummed on how short it is. But, it gives me something to look forward to. Can't wait to see what they do with EP 2.

    Man... Paralytic Flow has some pretty raw lyrics there... Dark Speed is pretty clearly a pop-ier Greg song for sure... loved Pennies and great to hear a final version!

    I can't really make them out. Which ones specifically strike you as raw?

    well... i should rephrase that, Ken's singing on the song hit me real hard... that "I want you so bad..." the lyrics to me sound like you lose yourself sometimes...

    "Pennies" has been a favorite of mine for a long time but the new version made me positively giddy. It's stunning. And they kept the guitar solo note-for-note! God, I fucking love this band.

    Bonus: their new music video is directed by Ken (who, lest we forget, went to school for film not music) and stars one of my fav character actors, David Dasatmalchian(!)

    Seems to me the EP/video talk about their past addictions.
