I shouldn't be posting this because there were only about 10 people there but yeah, this was after a party at their place and yeah, this is new material. My friend Rachael was playing the guitar at the beginning of Inanimate Sensation but that's only temporary (she was doing a noise/free improv set before them and Andy thought it'd be funny).
This sort of thing isn't uncommon but it's the first "house event" (as they're referred to) that I was indirectly invited to. Didn't really speak to the band that much because as soon as they were done they went to smoke cigs on the porch and I didn't wanna be annoying or anything. I think the chick from the Fashion Week cover was there for a bit but I honestly didn't get that great of a look at her.
If anyone has questions, I'll be happy to answer. Dunno how to provide proof about this but I probably wouldn't anyway considering that these are secret events and I don't think that they'd be too pleased if I gave out info.
No, nobody knows except the people who are closest and hold direct relationships with them (or so it seems). It's also kind of awkward to ask that sort of thing because it's nice of them to open up their house for a sneak peak at what's to come.
Plus, there's a given understanding in this scene. I met Andy and Stefan's friend Joz at the bike shop I work at right by their place. It's an artistic scene and she's cool as shit and people here get that it'll be out when the artists decide to drop it.
Sounds like a hell of a time. The video cuts off when they break into Lock Your Doors, did they play anything else?
Also, what's the scene like? Not like, looking for juicy details, just wondering what would unify a "scene" of Friends Of The Band outside of just an appreciation of art.
I'm not that big a fan of her work but we've been close for a while.
Yeah, I've talked with them. Zach's pretty into theorizing deep web related topics and we shared an understanding in the sphere of digitalization versus humanity. Haven't had meaningful conversations with Andy, but he's a generally sincere guy. Stefan is as quiet as he seems to be, haven't said a word to him despite the two of us being outside smoking together at a point. Doesn't seem to be depressed though, just nervous and overwhelmed but also accepting of this constant emotional state (if you get what I'm saying).
They didn't play the whole album and I honestly have no idea what the order of the set was. Zach improvs drumming a lot live so it's difficult to say how much was improv and how much will be on the album. Stefan was mostly inaudible haha.
I don't think it's legit to be honest.
It's your standard conceptual art/biking/general "intellectual" scene. Definitely friends of the band or people who know of friends of the band. We all make stuff for the most part.
Nah, it was about a 20 minute set. I don't know if that's Lock Your Doors for sure as they never really talked about the order or anything. I don't want to jump the gun and tell you false info.
>We all make stuff for the most part.
I envy you man. I'm an illustrator, so most of my work requires being at a computer, meaning I don't get to be a part of these type of scenes
nice try but stefan writes his lyrics on paper

You just outed yourself as a liar. If we can audibly hear stefan yelling "break mirrors with my face in the united states" 8 times then you shouldve at least remembered it.
nice try fuck tard
Did anyone else notice this or is it just that it's irrelevant?
