    I feel like whatever the lineup ends up being, if it doesn't include Abel, I will be thoroughly disappointed
    Don't worry Kanye, I like Fish-sticks too

    He's generated so much more hype than any artist in a while, and all in such a short amount of time. I can't remember the last time I was diggin an artist as much as Abel. Crazy good.

    If the first part was referring to my post then yeah in just a year.

    He kinda came out of nowhere with H.O.B and picked up a massive following. The whole reclusiveness just kind of added to his appeal and he's already on almost everyones wishlist.

    Finally gave Echoes of Silence is listen today, and I enjoy it upon first listen more than Thursday. Abel's vocals are crisp and his songwriting keeps getting better with each release. I love "Outside," "The Fall," and "Same Old Song." Is it just me or does "Echoes of Silence" sample the piano from Death Cab's "Transatlanticism?"

    You are ending my new years night quite perfectly. Thank you. Bass is all the way up and the neighbors can't do shit because the cops are busy making money for the city with DUI's.

    ... and, I'm sorry, but the strength of The Zone makes Thursday my favorite mixtape of the three. I know everyone disagrees, but god damn, the song is so fucking unf.

    Yeah I like Thursday a lot too. I'd say EOS and Thursday are on par with each other and HOB is slightly ahead.

    The "travel" part seems like a good lead.

    I was implying that the travel part meant that he WOULD be touring since he has only announced his shows in Canada so far, fuck tard.

    Given that Abel has just begun the process of auditioning for touring musicians, I can't help but wonder if Coachella might be a bit soon given the limited amount of time they'd have together to prepare for an April show with this high of a profile?

    Or maybe I'm just overestimating the amount of time a collection of band members new to each other would require for prep and practice before a tour. I'm not a musician myself so would be curious to hear thoughts from board members who are.

    Well, The Weeknd has some concerts in Canada coming up soon and they have already performed live, so it's not like the songs haven't been produced in a live setting yet. All that is being added is a live guitarist.
