No, because that band isn't full of tools.

He works for EGC, so he gets to go to almost everything awesome around here. :) They make those awesome aluminum guitars for Melvins, Failure, Isis, just about everyone else these days.

If I had the money to throw at a new guitar I'd be getting an EGC - they make some fine axes...

Yeah, an Electrical Guitar would be cool but I'm thinking my next guitar will probably be a Telecaster. I'm hoping that maybe that will be sooner rather than later.

If you ever get to play one do so. They are AMAZING. It sucks that Kevin has scaled back on his custom work now. I think he pretty much will only do true "custom" builds if you're one of the bigger clients and even then, I'm not sure? The Travis Bean fold in he did has started to dominate a lot of the time and they're still a tiny little shop with only 3-5 people.

^Very cool. I'm almost tempted to go, but seeing the Heart is a Monster tour was good enough for me. I feel like I got my fill of Fantastic Planet that night.

If anyone hasn't seen them, and is on the fence,..definitely check 'em out though.
So Long, and Thanks for All the Tool.

I feel the same way. I'd love to go but the closest show is 3 hours away and I saw them twice last year.
Tobacco has a local show the same night so I think I'll go to that instead.

I'm amazed by this quite frankly. Fantastic Planet is one of my favorite albums.

I will be listening to that later today when I get a chance then. The name looked familiar when I saw it (likely because of this forum) but yeh cant say I've ever been a fan or known about them

We will be playing our first three albums: Comfort, Magnified and Fantastic Planet, in their entirety in a trio of July residencies: July 9 to 11 at Chicago’s Thalia Hall, July 16 to 18 at The Echoplex in Los Angeles and July 23 to 25 at New York City’s Bowery Ballroom.

We have also announced an April 7 release of FAILURE 1992-1996, a four-piece vinyl box set featuring the three ‘90s-era albums. With the original masters finally being unearthed, Comfort, Magnified and Fantastic Planet have been meticulously restored, remixed, and remastered by Ken to a new level of sonic fidelity that eclipses all previous iterations of the band’s early work.

“Almost everything people have heard from these albums has been sourced from 16bit digital files made in the ‘90s, which was state of the art at the time,” explains Ken. “But when we found out we were getting our hands on the original analog master tapes, and with all the confusion and lack of quality control on several of the previous iterations, we set out to create the definitive versions of Comfort, Magnified and Fantastic Planet. Everything has been sourced directly from first generation multitrack and stereo master tapes. This is us finally getting to present our early work the way we’ve always wanted to.”

In addition to all the originally released songs from the three albums, we have discovered several unreleased songs which have also been restored and will be included in the box set. “Listening to the b-sides and outtakes from that first year of being a band takes me right back to playing the tiny stage at Jabberjaw in Los Angeles,” added Greg. “It’s always surprising to me how much of the expansiveness and atmosphere of the later records exist in embryonic form on those earliest stripped-down recordings.”

“These new versions have all the magic from the originals, but now, instead of looking through a hazy pane of glass, the window has been completely opened and you can hear all the elements in their full glory,” said Kellii.

FAILURE: 1992 to 1996 is available exclusively via Failure.hellomerch.com with pre-orders available now. Bundled packages, featuring the box set and various VIP or ticketing packages, are available via Failure.soundrink.com.

Very cool news. Really just want to get my hands on a remastered Fantastic Planet...just to hear how different it might sound.

And, here's hoping they can dig themselves out of the financial hole PledgeMusic dumped them in.
So Long, and Thanks for All the Tool.
