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.
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.

I am grinning ear to ear right now. Thanks, guys. =)
Hey Mark, can I get a random dude apparently from Jersey in on a guest list at some show, I don't know which one yet?

Puttin' the band back together and I'm already driving you nuts with my nonsense. It's totally 2003 all over again.

If you're serious about the guestlist thing I'm in. Ill PM you. I'm sorry if I offended you with my comments, I've just been wary of all these 10 year and reunion tours because I feel like with te recent rash of them, not all the bands are in it for the right reasons. I'm glad to see that at least from this pos an the initial statement that you guys are. Good luck with these last shows.
I'm 100% serious. And you're getting a tee shirt. But it's going to be XXXL. And you have to wear it the whole time.

I leave for Warped Tour on June 10th. And you better damn believe that I am driving 12 hours round trip from Dayton Ohio to see this in Chicago. This band was influential to tons of bands and fans. They are all good people, and are a treat to watch.
Mark Rose better grow his sideburns back out for this.
Dan better play a tele.
TJ better wear fingerless gloves.
And JD's hair better be curly as fuck.

In an era of bands breaking up, pre-programmed stage moves, and karaoke singing contests creating stars...let's celebrate a group of friends playing together again for the love of their songs and fans.

Can't wait boys.
JT
That's super kind of you, JT. Rest assured, I will be playing a Tele.

Can't promise that I'll be wearing pants, however. You know me.

Nyc was great. I saw this band so many times in nyc and nj over the years. I loved seeing them for the first time opening for catch 22 and billy talent and marks parents being in the crowd. I wonder if he still has that marshall signature slash head.
That's my Marshall Slash head, I still have it, and it's going to be played again. Thing sounds so sweet.

I'm confused though, does this mean that you've mixed up Mark and I, and that you're talking about MY parents? Be careful what you say about Sandy, she's a real man-eater.

Go on and run with that if the mood grabs you.

When Jimmy Eat World did their ClarityX10 tour it was strictly 10 dates commemorating the 10th anniversary of the album. I can see Spitalfield sticking to the same format.
That's really quite even of Jimmy Eat World to do something like that. But we're all very odd, so I don't see us doing that.

Definitely hitting one of these shows up. Nothing but fond memories associated with this album/band. First girl I was ever in love with we went to see them play at Uncle P's in Louisville, might just have to ask that girl to come with me for old times sake.
If you bring that girl out to the show, I'd be more than happy to publicly shame her for not being with you on your behalf.

Just so people don't get any crazy ideas, we're only planning on playing songs by The Little River Band.
