OMG NO NEW OLD MAN GLOOM AFTER ALL
Kurt Ballou, you rat bastid! After telling us he was about to begin working on a new Old Man Gloom record and getting us into a tizzy, Ballou has gone and taken it all back a few days later, claiming it was a “belated little April Fools joke.” From Kurt’s Facebook via Metal Injection:
whoops. nevermind about Old Man Gloom. they forgot to write songs, so they’ve cancelled
And then a follow-up reply to stangry FP commenters:
hey, i want an new OMG too. i think i’m just going to write it and record it myself and see if i can pass it off as them. i have played drums, guitar, and sang on their records before, so it’s ok, right? it will be called “easter.”
Oh well. At least we can still pine for that Scissorfight reunion.
