"A Small Victory," from Angel Dust
So nothing's set in stone or tattooed on Jim Martin's ass (as far as we know,) but Blabbermouth reports that U.K.'s Kerrang! reports that some industry folks reported that some U.K. venues are on hold for the band's comeback, set for this upcoming spring. More on that, courtesy of BM:
Kerrang! understands that a number of U.K. venues have been placed on hold for shows from the band next spring, while U.K. festival appearances are rumored to follow in the summer. Founding bassist Bill Gould played down the speculation, telling Kerrang! "If anything like this were to happen, it would have to come from the band, and I haven't spoken with any of them in over a year. So as far as I know, there isn't anything to talk about, and I'm pretty sure that if you were to contact [Mike] Patton [vocals], he would tell you the same thing."
OK, so beggars can't be choosers, this might not even happen, yadda yadda, but just in case:
1. Please invite back Mike Patton (though Chuck Mosley can tag along)
2. Please invite back Jim Martin (though those other guitarists can tag along)
3. Please don't pull an Emperor and play only two US shows in tiny venues for $60 a head.
4. Please be awesome.
