Joe Trohman Posts Blog About 2012

Posted by: Jason Tate (01/16/12)
Joe Trohman has posted a blog update with his happenings and plans in 2012. He's started a new band called With Knives.
From the BlogJust filling everyone in on what’s going on with myself and others are working on: The Damned Things are most likely not doing anything in 2012. As I’ve mentioned before ETID & Anthrax are very very busy touring their new records and I’d be surprised if anyone pushes for something TDT related this year. This is not to say there won’t be TDT again. I’m confident there will, as we all want to do it again. It just has to fit into everyone’s busy schedules. On top of that all, I’m also gearing up for something.

-Which now brings me to my next, and perhaps most exciting bit of news. Josh Newton, who played with The Damned Things with myself as well as various other rad bands (Every Time I Die, Shiner, Season To Risk to name a few), and I have started a new band called With Knives. With Knives began as a project Josh was working on on his own. When he joined TDT, he asked me to work on it with him, and so I did. It sounded a bit too realized to not turn it into an actual band. That’s what we’re doing with it.
Next month we will set out to Kansas City to record an EP. Then we will play shows and tour on this EP. We plan on putting it out ourselves using our Son Of Man thing as a record label. The plan is to release it as a 10” and download only, considering more people own and use a computer these days than a CD player. SOM will still be making and selling our weird shirts as well.
-And lastly, as I mentioned we plan on using Son Of Man as not just a way to unload some strange t-shirt designs, but also as a way to release music. There are a few other releases in the works that we plan on releasing via SOM, aside from the With Knives EP/10”. In general, the plan with SOM the whole time has been to turn it into a sort of artist collective. Hopefully we will be able to work with other artists and musicians to collaborate and release their stuff in a safe, DIY environment that doesn’t push them to do anything they don’t want to do.

Josh and I are really excited about the new band and continuing to work on Son Of Man. We’ve been slaves to the musical grind in our own respects and we both feel we can finally begin to work on something that feels like who we are, regardless if it’s met with open arms or not.

If you wish to support what we’re working on, visit Son Of Man and buy a shirt if it suits you. We also plan on making hoodies of the ‘2012 End Is Nigh’ design; they look great and we should have them up really soon. Trying our best to keep the cost as low as possible on our end. We know how tight things are these days. Also, keep checking my blog and Josh’s (www.gearnerd.info). We eventually plan on setting up mailing lists for both Son Of Man and eventually With Knives so you can get info directly to your inbox.
Also, if you have anything you’d like to submit to Son Of Man that you’ve been wanting to get out there, be it music or art, send something over to sonofmannyc@gmail.com. Re-blog, Re-tweet the shit out of this if you would so kindly do, and thanks for taking the time to read,
Joe (and Josh in spirit)

I spoke with Patrick earlier this year about FOB. It's not happening "anytime soon" -- people needa stop focusing on that for a while.

Awesome, more heavy shit from him. Hope this is just a straight forward hardcore band. And that his label thing releases some more sweet bands.

There's a dude from Shiner so I'm relatively interested in this. A brief description from Mr. Trohman would be nice.

There's enough other music out there to wait until everyone in the band is ready to do it - and they want to do it again.

I'll be fine with no FOB this year if Patrick would come to Utah with his solo stuff.

It's way too early to be demanding FOB news. None of them have shown a super strong interest in doing FOB right now. Sure, they've been optimistic about something later but they all seem very creatively content right now...and I think they need that. Joe just got married, Pete just got divorced, Andy is always doing stuff with friends and Patrick is enjoying his freedom (for lack of a better word). If it happens, I think it'll be cool to hear a more mature post-break Fall Out Boy. I think they're capable of it, these things just take time.

Where were you in the Black Cards thread? Every other post was, "Oh, this definitely means a new Fall Out Boy record by September."

I'll give Joe's new project a listen. Thought Damned Things had a few good songs but most of the CD was meh.
