quicksand-slip-coverThe music world has been set abuzz today with word that what was probably one of the most quietly influential bands of the 1990’s is in the rehearsal studios practicing for a worldwide summer reunion tour. Rumor has it there are also discussions of releasing the long lost album recorded just before they broke up.

No dates have been released yet, but all news is pointing towards a June/July tour through North America and then August and September overseas. Apparently they are not going through major promotions companies to book this tour.  All shows will be at small venues and booked by small local promoters. Walter has been cited as saying, “We want to get back to our roots and reconnect with all the fans that were there from the beginning. We want an intimate environment full of friends with local bands in each city opening for us, just like it was in the beginning.”

I don’t know about anyone else, but this news just made my entire year. I just hope the rumors about releasing the long lost album end up being true as well.

Not really creepy, just damn good

creepy_1There are those albums which you don’t listen to for a while and you remember them as being incredibly good, but you don’t realize exactly how incredibly good they are until you pop them on the stereo after a long hiatus.

Into another’s “Creepy Eepy” is one of those albums. Although it is only a 4 song EP, you could technically call it Into Another’s sophomore effort, as you can definitely hear a huge difference between what is on this album, what appeared on their initial release and what they put out on the album to follow this one; Ignaurus.

In my opinion, these 4 songs are some of the best material Into Another put out.  Just straight-forward pure post-hardcore goodness.  You can’t beat Richie’s voice and Peter takes his guitar to a whole new, almost metal level. Tony has one of the craziest bass solos you have ever heard on “Absolute Zero”, which closes out the song; and Drew…..the most fashionable drummer you have ever seen….lays down some of the craziest beats.

One of my favorite lines of any song ever comes off of this album, from the song “I’ll Be Damned”: “We call earth mother, but we are all mother fuckers. We drink her blood eat her flesh, take her love for granted. We feed her poison and in return we’ll reap what we’ve planted rest assured.”

This album started my weekend off on the right foot today.  What album is your Creepy eepy? That album you know is good, but sometimes you forget just how good.
