Sightings “tour Europe” to promote “new album” out April 1… NICE TRY YOU GUYS!

Sightings "tour Europe" to promote "new album" out April 1... NICE TRY YOU GUYS!

As my father said each subsequent time that I tried to convince him to buy me an electric cattle prod, “Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on your mother.” What I mean to say is, I’ve been burned before… fooled, you might say. All through college my roommates were relentless pranksters. They’d put entire cooked pizzas under my bed, and once they even covered my whole car in this weird yellow-ish sauce that still hasn’t washed out. And though my college friends are all either dead or living in Cleveland these days (pretty much the same thing, am I right folks???), I’ve stayed pretty on edge about getting pranked.

You can imagine, then, my skepticism when I heard about this new album and tour from Sightings. So, apparently the tour starts the first week of April (RED FLAG: anything in the month of April is suspect) and it’s slated to stretch across Europe (RED FLAG: the only people who go to Europe are socialists and legacy acts). The tour is purportedly designed to promote the band’s new album (RED FLAG: who was the last European you met that bought albums?) which is going to be called Terribly Well (RED FLAG: no one uses adverbs anymore), and released on April 1 (GROUND CONTROL TO MAJOR RED FLAG: that’s my mother’s birthday) on Dais Records (that part checks out). And get this, apparently Sightings are an “experimental rock” band?? Surely they must be kidding! There’s no market for that kind of stuff these days! Everybody (including TMT) knows that the kids only want to hear Fun pop music about Going Out, Overcoming Adversity, and getting over your Fear Of Missing Out. If you’re in Europe, maybe check out one of the dates, or pre-order the album here, but just sayin’, this smells an awful lot like a hoax.
