Hey! Listen, I’m kind of in a hurry here. Besides, it’s like Tuesday already, so you probably know what happened at this past weekend’s Dismemberment Plan shows, starting Friday night at Baltimore’s Metro Gallery, right? Wait, you don’t? And you’re a “fan” of theirs?? Sigh. Fine, strap in. I’ll take you through it.

So, blah blah blah, “The Dismemberment Plan”… something, something, “live debut of first new songs in 11 years” or whatever it is… maybe I’ll throw in a dash of the old “Consequence of Sound reports," etc. etc. And a quick cutaway to Travis Morrison's Facebook recap:

Travis here.

We played a bunch of new songs this weekend at our shows. Eight to be exact! It went well, we think. We have a bunch more coming so we're going back to the lab to work on brand new ones and tweak these. No plans for recording as of yet, although certainly those conversations are happening now.

"Beyond that, he goes on to say (as if there's actually anything beyond that), "the shows were great. " So yeah, everyone in the band seems to be feeling positive and in good spirits about stuff, but other than that, not much to glean, really. Let's just cut straight to the fan reactions, shall we?

The new songs sounded better than the old ones!
-Rob Perry

Oh man. A new album would be so awesome.
-Skylar Francise

Omg new songs
-Sean Gilbertson

Yup, pretty funny out of context, huh? Well, that’s about it. You’re up to speed, and I’m out of here.

Oh, wait! The songs. Yes, there’s YouTube videos of at least six of them. I’m sure you can search them out yourself when you get a… oh, never mind. Here they are.
