    Ancient bands in the modern times don't know how to use the internet to market their stuff. It's not even a new album per se, just some rerecorded stuff that were left out from 4:13 Dream. There were even a few sites talking about a new Trilogy DVD/Blu Ray being released, but also no word from that. Answering your question: no one has any idea of what's going on

    Does anyone know when the new album is going to be released? In the early spring they said "in the next few months"...

    It saddens me that thousands of people listen to Friday I'm In Love and yet have likely never bothered to look into Faith, Pornography or Bloodflowers. All three of those albums deserve more attention. I love Disintegration and all but it wasn't their only masterpiece.

    just getting into them and I'm afraid I'm gonna fall deeply in love with them. I just have this feeling. I'm not ready for this!
