Our plan is to start at Irving Plaza and go from there. There are pieces of land on this planet that we want to bring our gear onto and play on. I don’t think the UK would allow us to reunite and not come visit them. I think the hatred and frustration would implode the whole country, so we’re definitely going to come over there, I think. I mean, I’d like to. Brandon and I are the two biggest Anglophiles in the band, so the two of us definitely want to visit.

Miss The Movielife's final show tonight? Me too. Sounds like it is a great one too. Brand New's opening (adding to my jealousy of those there). Here's to one of my favorite bands growing up ... I'm breaking out the old tunes for you.
