Sit Down, Son. We Need To Talk.

Look, son. Well, heck, this ain't easy so I'm just going to jump right in. Um, well first let me just say that me and this blog love you very much, and nothing's going to change that, champ, but sometimes things change, people change. You see what I'm getting at, son? No? Okay, well, it's like this. Me and the blog, see we need sometime away from one another. I'll still be your dad, and Cosmic Hearse will still be your blog, but...

I'm just fucking with you. However, I could use a break from The Hearse and I will be traveling quite a bit over the next month and a half, so the blog will be on hiatus for a bit. First I go to this...

Anonymous said...

since you're going to Atlanta, you may as well come to savannah. jinx.net for booking.

The Wolf said...

I'll try my best to see you guys in Atlanta, unless one of those TBAs is going to be closer to Nashville.

Steven said...

Spreadin' the word..

FuneralStench said...

Lucky bastard. I will miss the updates but I'm not going to lie, this hiatus may be a good thing for my own blog ;)

By the way, what the hell is it that you do? Get paid to goto shows?

Aesop said...

FuneralStench, I play drums in both Agalloch and Ludicra, hence my vast wealth and influence.

Narthex said...

The updates will be missed - i'll see you in seattle. keep up the good work, travel safe.

Chet the Medicine said...

EarthreceptoR said...

Well fuck my ass!!! See yuh at the ol Berbati's there!!! I'll be that one guy with the thing.

ido said...

Please bring LUDICRA to DC. If not, then I'll try to get up to Baltimore.

Have a great tour!

Krumbled Kookie said...

If you can, Great Scott is a really great venue in Allston, just outside of Boston, for the 4/17 show. I saw Krallice there with WitTR last year and it was a kick-ass show.

Robert said...

Good luck! I hope I'll be able to make it to the Atlanta show on 4/22.

Anonymous said...

See you guys in Portland!

Aesop said...

raul_dook said...

cheers!

The Typing Monkey said...

You're doing the Lord's work with this blog, and even she took a break after a six days, so you deserve one too.

Good luck, have fun and thanks for all the music.

stevens said...

If you see a dude with a Stihl Chainsaw patch on the back of his vest during the Scion heavy metal vomit party, that's me. Feel free to hang out and get shammered.

ElKapitan said...

Have a righteous time.
Your blog is always the first page I open up whenever I log on the net so it'll be like cold turkey for a while...

Daniel said...

Stoked. When you guys come to Austin/ Emo's drinks are on me....if you need a place to crash,let me know. See you in April.

Jacob said...

On Reggie's site on April 10, it doesn't list Ludicra at all. I'm more than willing to drive 2 hours and take a 4 hour train, but not if you're not playing.

Chris said...

Play las cruces, nm on that TBA day! I can help. Will this link my e-mail?

Aesop said...

Chris, I think we are.

Jacob, the Reggie's show has been moved to The Cave.

billias said...

kimmie gibler said...

Scion?

Why do corporations stick their fat asses in everything?

Did the NKTOB cancel?

Aesop said...

Hmmmm, so we whine when corporations do cool things like gather amazing bands for a free show too?Interesting.

icoulddietomorrow said...

I might come down for the Baltimore show to meet up with Asa and Hasan. Who knows, though? I'm lazy as shit.

Wish you all the best Aesop...as long as you come back to us xD

Safe Travels! See you indianapolis!

P A J O said...

DESTROYED every other band on the bill... and I enjoyed many of the bands... but they were outstanding! aesop started playing the pipe above him as part of the drum beat... wicked! was that a weakling shirt? where the fuck can I get a weakling shirt?!

Dennis Dread said...

Let's really say hello in Portland this time, eh?

Anonymous said...

blast-o-mat is the best venue ever.

Milla said...

Fursy TEYSSIER said...

Hey Aesop

This is french Fursy! :-)
I just listened carefully to Ludicra and I felt in love with that band. That is just exactly what I need at the moment, so strong and powerful, very dark.
The trip in Romania was fantastic and Alcest REALLY hope to tour with you someday!

Good luck for the Pentagram/Ludicra tour!
Speak soon

Fursy

Aesop said...

Thanks, Fursy. That means a lot. It was great hanging out with you all in Romania, great men, great show. However our tour is with Krallice and Tombs (who you should also check out) not Pentagram. Good luck on your dates in the US.

Shannon said...

Dear Daddy,
It is the first week of May. Rent is almost due. i miss hearing from you. I was going to give you a cdr of my band when you were here in Seattle since i have listened to so much thanks to you, but we broke up and i had strep throat and you didn't play so i just went home after work instead of going to the morgue.
I have the internet now! I don't have to steal songs from the internet at school and put it on a zip drive to take home! I'm all growed up now, Poppy!
anyway, cheers! i hope your travels taught you things and you are happy to know them.
*S*

catatonic_disassembly said...

Daddy, Johnny's sticking his weiner in the garbage disposal again and threatening to turn it on unless I let him borrow my Terrorizer cd. Can you please just post it here so i don't have to let him borrow it and have him scratch it AGAIN? thanx. Oh and btw it's almost end of 1st week of May! ;p

ifdead said...

I know you're home. Where is my jones man? Hit me with some new rad stuff you found on tour.....
