I looked in the webstore and noticed a lot of the designs aren't there right now. Were there plans to make some new shirts?

I'm also curious to know if there are any plans for more PTL related releases coming up...new Headphones album? Maybe some stuff TW is working on?

I'm sorry to be the one to break the news but...2 weeks ago Dave announced that he was officially retired from any and all music writing in the interest of honing his skills as a dancer.

I am not that shocked but extremely disappointed. The headphones record is one of my favorite bazan albums. Heck, its just one of my favorite albums period.

I really like the Headphones record too, but conceptually it seems kind of unnecessary to keep it as a separate project with Dave performing as a solo artist now. There's no real reason those types of songs couldn't just go on a solo record.

I kinda of disagree. I totally understand what you are saying, but the headphones always felt like sort of a character to me. Almost like an accent Dave was doing. I am not saying it wasn't sincere or anything, it just felt like it had a certain attitude.

I totally agree here. Headphones was like a pseudonym; yeah, we knew it was Dave, but it wasn't who he had been up until that point. Almost like an alter ego where you can say whatever you want instead of feeling the weight of all the things you've said before. Just as the audience for Headphones was different, so was its speaker; and as others have said, it is an amazing album.

But maybe Dave doesn't need the pseudonym any more.

However, that doesn't mean I wouldn't love another Headphones record. I can already imagine how great it would be.

I do realize you're undertow and a lot more in the know than I am...but I saw David open for mewithoutYou last summer and someone in the crowd asked if he was planning on making another Headphones record. He said yes rather enthusiastically. Maybe things have changed since then though.

Do not question the Bob.

I'd been torn between wanting another Headphones record and wanting solo Bazan to be more Headphones-y. The contrast between Headphones and CYB/future solo Bazan is probably less stark than when compared to PTL (thus necessitating a "side project"), and if Filter can be trusted, Strange Negotiations is Headphones-y. That's enough for me, for now.
