going out on a limb and guessing that Archie is an insufferable twat. Have you seen him being interviewed. Jeez.

Anyway this is karma for whistling in a song ;)

This makes me very sad. One of the genuinely exciting bands in music up until today. I assume the three guys will do something else together... I hope... but there was probably a magic here they won't recapture. And I wonder where the lead singer goes from here. It'll be interesting to see how the next few months play out. Bummer.

All right time for some guesses - what do you think is gonna happen?

The three members minus the singer continue with a new name / same name
The singer finds new members and continues as Santa Cruz / new band
Solo projects?

Looks like the singer is the ''black sheep'' judging from the comments so I don't see why the other 3 wouldn't continue making music together. But maybe after 10 years in the same band they thought it was time for a change

Karma for whistling and River Phoenix:

>>We're going down... Like River Phoenix

>>It's now we hit the ground... Like River Phoenix

(Sorry can't resist :rolleyes:)

Latest FB update seems a little more promising " Thank you fans for all your messages. All bands have problems and we’re working through one right now but we will all be ok. We will tell you more later on. "

It is entirely possible that the reason they seemingly all quit is because nobody can be fired and replaced due to some initial agreement when they set the band up, which makes sense as why else would the three just not replace Archie.

 

Could just be a knee jerk reaction due to issues building up over time, with whatever the latest incident was being the final straw that broke the camels back.

Once they cool down, maybe they will work things out.

Sounds a bit less cryptic. I hope they decide to continue.

Looks like they're working things out, they're posting pictures with one another on instagram and captions like "The good times will never die"

    • Have to agree....Absolutely killer album!  I've been through it a handful of times now and I swear the more I listen, the more I like it.       I don't know if it'll be my top album but it's definitely right there among my favorites this year. Have picked up their last album too and will be checking that out closer once I can get the new one out of my CD player Not sure how these guys slipped under my radar.  Good stuff.
    • Yeah I know what you mean. I did a search and didn't see it either at first. It's not the first time and probably won't be the last.
    • Old photo of the entrance to Tower Records at Eastport Plaza.  This is like walking directly back in time 25+ years.  I even remember what part of the store I found the Roxy Blue CD  
    • Yeah I was sure there was one somewhere.
      I did a search for Steel City in the subject line.
      I think my mistake was that I put a space between steel and city  
    • Really like this track, will have to check out the Ascension album...   
    • "Want Some?" was easily one of my favorite CD's in the 1992 time-frame.  I remember specifically purchasing my copy at Tower Records at Eastport Plaza in Portland, Oregon late summer 1992.  No idea how I remember such specific (and often useless) information, but I also purchased Angel City "Face To Face" on CD the same day. Roxy Blue "Want Some" / Hardline "Double Eclipse" / Def Leppard "Adrenalize" / Bon Jovi "Keep The Faith" / Bangalore Choir "On Target" / Electric Angels "ST"  These are the discs that were in CONSTANT rotation in my system 1992 / 1993.  Yes, certainly there were others, but I pretty much wore the aforementioned titles out! Getting back on-track to the topic at-hand... I don't hold-out enormous hope based on the "Different sound" comment, but Frontiers is a great label, so we'll see.  I think more of a problem (for me, anyway), is it is no longer 1992, and I'm no longer a youthful 24 year-old looking to hang-on to the genre I knew and loved dating back to the early 1980's at a time when a "new" sound was taking over the airwaves.
    • Here's me repeating the same thread in April  
    • Here's a thread you replied to  
    • NOLA is one of my favorite CD's. Not one bad song.
    • Couldn't find a thread for this one. After a few listens I've decided that these are the songs I really like off the album.

      Decent enough, and worth picking up.

      01 Do You Love Me
      04 Picture Of Beauty
      05 Too Little Too Late
      06 Someone Like You
