Default Cursive - New album, original drummer, fall tour, I miss FlamingGlobes

Time to see if I'm the only around here interested in this album. Paging FlamingGlobes to this goddamn thread.

NPR write up on the new album out October 5th: For A Wracked World, Cursive's 'Vitriola' Returns To A Reckless Sound

For Vitriola, his new record as Cursive out Oct. 5 via the band's own 15 Passenger label Kasher is returning to a sound not heard since 2000's Domestica or 2003's The Ugly Organ; an emotional turbulence marked by daggers of slanted guitar riffs and swooping cello, alongside a wracked rhythm section that spurs on the mania. Founding drummer Clint Schnase has returned to the fold, while touring member Megan Siebe is the first cellist to appear on a Cursive record since 2003, a dynamic rounded out by guitarist/singer Ted Stevens, bassist Matt Maginn and Patrick Newbery on keys.

Wow, feels like I've been waiting forever to hear a peep from Cursive.

Their last album was terrible, so it's nice to hear that they wanna revisit their older sound, but we all know the pitfalls of trying to recapture former glories. Happy Hollow and Mama, I'm Swollen were pretty good, despite also having a different sound from their rougher older stuff, so I'm not so concerned that the new stuff sounds like Domestica as much as I'm concerned that it sounds good.

Extremely valid points Disco King, let's hope for the best.

On an unrelated note, I'm going to Tim's living room show at a stranger's house in Phoenix tomorrow night. Last time he did one of these tours Patrick N. was with to add keys and percussion but it sounds like this time around it's just Tim and his guitar.
