Apparently, the Thorns of Life are officially over. Blake Schwarzenbach has this to say on Facebook: "the name of this band is forgetters. (no "the," no capital "f.") we played our first show on August 22nd in Crown Heights. members are: blake (guitar/vocal); caroline (bass/seaweed); kevin (drums)."

I checked the Y00tubes, there aren't any videos of the show up. Hopefully this band will actually... you know... stick around. And release a CD. And tour.
If only summer rain would fall, on the houses and the boulevards
And the sidewalk bagatelles, it's like a dream
With the roar of cars and the lulling of the cafe bars,
The sweetly sleeping sweeping of the Seine...

Haha, I just logged onto Facebook, and this was at the top of the page.

It sucks that Thorns of Life never put out an album. Maybe forgetters will play some Thorns of Life stuff? I hope so! I could rock out to "I Hate New York" all day long.

No capital F? Why? It seems pretty stupid to care about something like that.

Because he's Blake Schwarzenbach, which makes him infallible.

Fuck, I liked that Facebook status, and now I'm gonna get a billion notifications. >:/

Same. I clearly was not thinking.

But I can't unlike it or Blake will see, and then he won't let me listen to his music.

edit: Blake Schwarzenbach: "there is no thorns album. i promise. it never got recorded."

Bummer

Yeah. :/
Ah, well. At least there's the bootleg.

Yeah, the Thorns bootleg is cool, and they'll play Thorns songs, so that's good. I'm pumped for the forgetters, a tour would be awesome at one point. I just wish Blake and his bands would think of better band names :p
I'm the same as I was when I was six years old
And oh my god I feel so damn old
I don't really feel anything

Yeah, but it's still not the best. Band name really doesn't matter that much in the end anyway.

No it is you who needs to stop making f*cking bands.

Wait...

I could be facebook friends with Blake Schwalawashingbach?

...Wouldn't being in the presence of his greatness make my profile feel bad? My profile has self confidence issues as it is.

Hopefully theyll actually release something.

It's not like Jawbreaker was a good band name. Names aren't worth much by themselves anyway.

Jawbreaker is cool when you apply it to a person instead of a candy.

Apparently Kevin is Kevin Mahon, formerly of Against Me fame.

Never heard of him. He played on Crime, I assume?

Yeah he was their first drummer.

For anyone in the New York area, from Blake's Facebook:

"forgetters play Friday, September 18th at Lit Lounge NYC with Golden City."

If anyone goes I expect a full report and hopefully bootlegs.

And the sidewalk bagatelles, it's like a dream

I like that Blake seems to be more upfront about this band than he was with Thorns.

forgetters now have a blog (I am an expert Facebook creeper):

http://forgetters.blogspot.com/

Looks like there's a mini-tour of sorts coming up.

I wonder what other Thorns songs made the jump. I'd like to hear a recorded version of Subway.

Saw this band in Philly. Incredible on so many levels. I actually enjoyed it significantly more than Jawbreaker. They played a few Thorns of Life songs, don't remember song titles. They're recording/releasing an EP in November apparently. Can't wait for it.

All my info is from rumors, so don't get too excited haha.

Ha, after the Thorns of Life disappointment, I won't. I'm basically expecting them to be broken up before the end of October, so if this EP actually comes out, I'll probably jizz my pantz. And it will be awesome.
#40
Judging by what I saw, it will be the album of the year. Easy. Blake seems pretty optimistic about the future of the band.

EDIT:
Only songs I remember the names of are Oh Deadly Death (Thorns of Life song) and Helicopter vs Rabbit, which I think was new.

EDIT2:
Oh and Black Art, Not Funny and 1982 which I also think were all, or at least 2 were Thorns of Life.
