Drowningman reforms for select shows

Drowningman 2014

Defunct Vermont outfit Drowningman will play three shows in August, their first official outings since disbanding in 2005. For the past month, the 1999-2001 lineup of the band (Matt Roy, Javin Leonard, Simon Brody, Joe Villemaire, Dave Barnett) has been rehearsing together for the first time in roughly 13 years. Frontman Simon Brody had the following to say:

"We are playing a handful of shows in the Northeast... If all goes well we may play a select few shows in the near future, hopefully festivals and bigger shows that make sense, since we don't all live in the same part of the country."

The three shows currently confirmed are:

8/9 New York, NY @ Saint Vitus Bar
8/15 Burlington, VT @ Signal Kitchen
8/16 Boston, MA @ Middle East

Brody finally paid back all those people he stole money from for fake merch?

Hope the venues know how to obtain lots of painkillers.

Does that moron still post? I remember him and that insufferable gay Carson_Slovak were among the worst ones on here. To give Simon a little credit, at least drowningman isn't as irrelevant as armsbendback.

I hate these fckers. I use to live in upstate NY and the guitarist worked at bobs music in Plattsburgh. He was explaining to a customer, "my BMW gets 35 in the city". I almost f*ucking puked from the amount of douchedom

I remember when you guys all fcking worshiped Simon and sucked on his old c-ck. Him and Sifl or whatever.

Either way, these dudes need to get me behind the boards for the reunion record.
Javin, bro. Hit me up. I might do the next Norma, or maybe the next GlassjaW record, but after that I'm free to work it behind the boards for you dudes.
All the best,
Ross Robsinson.

GlassJAw. Excuse me, dudes.

7/16/2014 8:21:44 PM
No thanks. We're waiting for Phil Specter to get out of jail for the next one. That way he can tell us how they really light Ciggs in prison.
