I was looking forward to seeing them again. My friends and I got to meet Keith Murray (he went to high school with one of my friends...what up Cooper City) and he was the nicest guy. For Shame!! For Shame!!
"Screw the boys, I wanna stay here with my new family and their feel good candy..."
Statement from the link above, which is pretty funny but hey next year is always good.
We’re officially not doing Coachella this year. As I said, the promoters jumped the gun in including us on their materials earlier this week — assuming, maybe, that a band of our relatively meager cache wouldn’t consider turning down an offer to play the finest U.S. music festival. But they underestimate both our laziness and our cowardice. Since — unless something goes terribly awry — we’ll be right in the middle of recording our next record (tentatively titled “Berries! Is!! Good, Yummm!!! Hey?”) when Coachella rolls ’round, we’re concerned that we’ll be totally out of shape, unable to put on a great live show, and that getting into shape would majorly interrupt the recording effort. Basically, we’re not getting on stage in Indio without super-ripped abs deflecting the desert light in all sorts of directions, like a prism, and right now our bellies look like sun-bleached dead catfish, and by April they’ll look even more like that, eerily so.
But we make this vow: Next year! Coachella! Abs agleam!
I hope they'll be considered for next year.
If they have a new album coming out, they will and I doubt GV passes it up with the little slip up this year.
I saw them in New Orleans last year. You're not missing anything.
they were awesome in concert.
the show before i saw them they had all of their equipment stolen
one of the guys bought all the same equipment that he had before, and the other guy bought different new equipment, and they had a big argument on-stage, "you're why traditions die!" etc. very funny.
"time to teach grand-pappy a lesson in electro-harmonic distortion."
This is GREAT news!
See the Ticketmaster sale page.
How will I fulfill my Friday quota of PETA World Sexiest Vegetarian nominees now that Keith Murray is out?
I'd take the We Are Scientists over the Comedians of Comedy, I want someone not from the field to do comedy.

They are greaaaat. I mean, look at Chris's response to not playing in Coachella! He's so clever and intelligent! Very cute. I really hope they will play next year; they were practically one of the 2 reasons I'm going on Friday.
Kyuss would make me happy also.
i like we are scientists
sad to discover they will not be there after all
Anyone know when they usually start making additions to the lineup? I can't remember from last year...
