Ben Jorgensen (Armor For Sleep) did an interview reflecting back on his career and the seminal scene album What To Do When You Are Dead.
One of my favorite albums of all time was OK Computer by Radiohead, and I guess it’s a concept album but it’s not really a story from front to back, it’s just a very cohesive thing and I’ve always loved that. Honestly, the first couple songs I wrote for What To Do When You Are Dead had that theme of me being dead because it was a very weird time for me in my life.

Armor For Sleep recently sat down to talk about their past, reunion, and where the scene is now.
From the InterviewThere will always be kids passionate about it, but between 2003 and 2007 or 2008 is when this scene had it’s time that was going to be something that was going to stay or be a fad. Based on certain factors and certain people’s decisions who are in certain taste-maker bands, it just went sour and went the wrong way. I don’t think it’ll really have that same kind of effect on as many people as it did on that time. It was almost the mainstream form of music then, and it changed a lot of people’s lives and then it went sour because it did. I think it’ll be there and...

StatementAs a celebration of our quickly approaching reunion/farewell shows, and as a gift to all of you who will be coming to the final shows (the NY show being less than a week away!), we are posting one final unreleased (demo) track for you called "Always A Wish" which was recorded as one of the first demos for Smile for Them and which ultimately did not make the record.

In this interview, Armor For Sleep's Ben Jorgensen quiets rumors of a new AFS album surrounding the band's reunion shows.
From the InterviewWe’re not going to make another Armor for Sleep album. I can 99.99% say we’re not going to do it. Everybody has their own things going on in their lives, and people’s priorities change, and everyone is really busy with what they’re doing. And another thing is, that [while] we could all do different creative things, I feel like AFS is very attached to a certain time, and to do anything to dishonor that would be unjust in some ways. So, if we do other things – when we do other things – it will be outside AFS.

Armor for Sleep's lead singer recently talked with Gunz about reuniting for Bamboozle.
From the Interview“There was a long time when I would have sworn on anything we would never play again, and then we did… we don’t have any plans to play any other shows. I will say it has been fun to jam out with the guys again, and to get in a room and play Car Underwater. But there’s nothing planned, we’re not going to say, “We’re going on a world tour.” Bamboozle’s going to be it. We’re not going to do anything major. I don’t want to say, “no,” but we don’t have any plans for it. We want this to be our last show.”
Jason Tate on 04/05/12 - 10:52 AM
Armor For Sleep will reunite at Bamboozle.

Read a blog from frontman Ben Jorgensen regarding the reunion here.

ExcerptWe ended things a number of years ago and didn’t really talk that much. At the end there was a lot of disappointment and it was a weird situation for all of us and we just kind of walked away from it and didn’t actually stay in touch with each other that whole time. It was kind of like “we” were a sore subject for all of us. I was hanging out with Anthony [DiIonno] who was our bass player, and we both live in Manhattan now and he was talking about how Bamboozle is going back to Asbury Park this year. That has a lot of value for us because that was the...
