Congrats! Love End Measured Mile. Still need to cop the acoustic EP.
I'm hoping to grab it when I see them in Philly or NJ. Every band I've ever talked to has always said that they see more of the money when you get it from them on tour, so, I tend to hold off when possible.
Regrettably, I missed Polar Bear Club, Fireworks, Such Gold, Balance and Composure, and Make Do and Mend this fall. That's a really solid lineup, and I shit the bed.. but the sets were so, so, so short that I couldn't really justify it.
Before that, who have they toured with? I don't recall seeing them ever headline the NYC-area?
That tour was awesome, so worth it. Also saw them a little over a year ago with Defeater, All Teeth, and Living With Lions.
I have a good feeling that Matt Bayles isn't going to stand for some of the subpar moments that hurt MDAM from time to time. The guy is really, really on-point, and, from what I've heard from bands who work with him, he's not afraid to get his hands dirty and really make a band kill themselves for their best possible sound.
I wonder if it will be a "summer record", with a release date so close to summer.
