currently listening to The Great Escape. I can see why they are a big deal and all, but it's just not resonating with me like I thought it would. I respect what they're doing and all, but in all honesty I'll probably never listen to this album again.
oh yeah, here's an excerpt from a Stereogum interview with Butch Vig:
STEREOGUM: Do you anticipate touring a lot in 2012?
BUTCH: We’re talking about it right now. We’ll probably start doing rehearsals in January of next year and then play a few small shows in March of April. Then maybe we’ll play some festivals both here and in Europe. In fact, yesterday we were talking about what songs we should start rehearsing and suddenly I was like, “Argh! I can’t even think about this until we get this new record finished!” And then we started talking about what it would be like if we played a series of shows where each night we played the new record and one of our old records and our B-side, which meant we’d need to rehearse about 200 songs or something. Which means we would lose our fucking minds!
