I remember seeing them in a basement of a church with The Forecast and The Graduate back in 2007. Glad to see them back together.

For sure hitting up the Cleveland date! I know I first got into these guys at a concert in Cleveland, but can't remember which one. After seeing them, though I bought their albums and now I am just stoked for one more Cleveland show. Really happy for the band and this announcement. Also stoked to see Shane Henderson live again. I miss him belting out Valencia songs.

Can't the fact that they WANT to play be good enough?? And just because they weren't a major influence to you (or myself for that matter), doesent mean for one second that they didn't influence many people or they weren't significant to many people...just don't go to the show lol I don't think they asked you to...
Well actually to that last part they kinda did. Lol. Of course after the fact, but I thought your wording was funny

This is Dan from the band here. While I appreciate your candor and informed opinion on the matter, I can assure you that I personally could give less than zero fucks about playing to sold out rooms of any size, shape, or color. I don't speak for anyone else in the band, but I'm sure they feel the exact same way about it.

I never got a last show. I just quit after playing in Des Moines, Iowa. It wasn't how I wanted to go out, but it's how it went down. Now, I'm older, I've been away from the music industry long enough to not hate the idea of music, and I want to pick up my guitar and play again.

I'm excited as hell for this opportunity. I'm 32, I'm trying to have a family here soon, I'm going to (finally) have a college degree in short order, so this is my last chance to get in my last shows. Please don't poop on my parade.

Also, I totally agree that we weren't noteworthy when we were around before. I never felt that way about us, and maybe that's why I couldn't be in a touring band for my whole life. I never sought out to try and have a pile of money to roll around in, or glean fame. I always wanted to make something special for me. If other people liked it enough to show up ten years after the fact, that's fantastic, and I'm really quite happy that I can give them something to look forward to and/or possibly enjoy. It's not about trying to show the world that we were noteworthy. I just want to play a damn show again.

E-mail me and I'll put you on the guest list.

You guys were one of my favorite bands and I was more than happy to be at shows in Columbia SC any time you were in town not to mention I bought every CD and hell, I even bought a damn t-shirt. And you guys were nice enough to stick around after the shows to say hi. So thanks for everything and good luck with everything!

This is one band and one album that didn't really need to have a reunion and 10 year tour respectively. No offense to fans of the band, but they weren't exactly extremely noteworthy while they were around.
people like you are what's wrong with this world. you just pop in to say something that is shit and then carry on your life, dating your ugly girlfriend and being the last person your friends call to invite to a party

The soundtrack to the summer after my graduation. Definitely trying to make it down for the the New York show. Kind of beyond thrilled about this.

They may not have been noteworthy to you but they are to other people. What.. smaller artists can't comeback to what they love doing?

Hey man don't worry about what dumb-asses say online. I'm glad you guys were not some sell-out band like Fall out Boy that does not give a rat about their fans because they decide they want to fit in with the TOP 40. You guys are one of my favorite bands and seeing you guys all the time in Chicago with The Audition,June, The Junior Varsity was the shit.
I will be at the Bottom Lounge.
