First Death Grips and now Youth Lagoon? Spooks will probably hold on to that one for a while.
"What, you called me a douchebag? But you like Youth Lagoon bro!"
1) Dudes need to shape the fuck up. I love Zach Hill as a musician... but as a person the dude has got to fucking get his shit together if he wants to not have this all go way over his head. I mean, the dude has been touring all across the world for years... finally gets a solid project going since Hella with some guys and then they cancel a tour for like their third time? Then people start coming out about how the individual members are (which I know the truth about Zach Hill, always have, seen facts of his shit) and it's all starting to add up that either these dudes don't give a shit in the worst way possible, or they're full of themselves in the worst way possible.
Either way, the music remains great, but fuck them and their shady bullshit.
2) The way certain people on here are reacting to this is wayyy out of context in terms of the way these guys work... If any of you could grasp a single second's substance of their message that they portray in their music well then you would comprehend that following the ordinary model for a musician to tour once an album is released is THE last thing this group is concerned with. Instead they are offering TWO full blown pieces of work which would give you 3 releases to listen to from a group, who would be, at that time only two years into their formation. Yeah sure that doesn't mean what they did was all dandy and fine and everyone should be smiling about it but if you sat on this comment box and pulled out a "OMG YU GUYZ CANT DO DISSS" or a "WUZ IT LA RIED DAT SAID U CUDNT COME OUT 2 PLAYYYY??" - well then you don't understand that this group probably cares more about finishing off that album that they promised EVERYONE they would release under a major label, than all of our shitty little opinions, including mine......YO WHO THE FUCK AM I KIDDING THO, FLATLANDER THE FUCK U PLAYING U AT SON? ZACH...THE FUCK U PLAYING AT SON? RIDE.....WHY THE FUCK IS YOU TOO BUSY TRIMMING DAT BEARD TO PLAY A SHIT LITTLE SET FOR US SON?

I spy a nice little FYF-sized hole in this schedule...
Does anyone have ANY clue what spooks rant is actually about up there? Something about how when he hung out with Zach Hill, Zach killed his dog so now spooks hates him and somehow he missed the memo that they explicitly said they were cancelling the tour to finish the album, with no mention of LA Reid?
And don't forget Marnie Stern and Wavves
He's kind of one of the most awesome drummers alive right now. Watching a Hella show is somewhat of a religious experience.
Full on nomination for best board freakout. I don't even know what I read. It also may have only been 1 sentence.
Also, Zach Hill helped get my buddy into the Refused Pomona show on the guestlist, so as far as I am concerned, he is also a cool as fuck guy.
