Twelve Tribes remains inactive

What happened to Twelve Tribes? That's what we were wondering, so we decided to find out. We spoke with guitar player Andrew Corpus earlier today and he informed us that the group hasn't played together in nearly two years. In fact, Corpus adds, "none of us are really doing anything music wise except for Kevin [Schindel]." Schindel is currently a member of Mouth Of The Architect. Regarding the fact that Ferret Music no longer lists the band on their current roster, Corpus says, "I imagine they took us off the roster because we aren't putting out any new music... but they treated us great and were supportive until the end." Corpus had nothing to offer relative to the band's future (or lack thereof).

first post. this is what passes for news nowadays huh?

MarginError 6/9/2009 12:11:56 PM

they should stay that way. One of the most mediocre bands I've ever heard. Even though I'm not a fan, MOTA is a huge step up for that dude.

RIP Twelve Tribes

This HAS to be joke news. If not I expect "brothers keeper still broken up" tomorrow.

Mouth of the Architect is a good band. Would like to see them live.

Such a shame and a telling update. Twelve Tribes were and always will be one of the best, if not the best, post-hardcore/metalcore band of the late 90's into the new millenium. Rebirth and Midwest are two of the best things Ferret ever released.

kenwregget 6/9/2009 12:30:05 PM

p.s. wasn't Howard KSE managing them? Why couldn't they bring them out more often on tour? Twelve Tribes were a better and more metal KSE, and head-to-head, Adam is a better vocalist.

I liked Twelve Tribes.

xThizzelle_Washingtonx 6/9/2009 12:34:43 PM

Looks like I can stop wishing for them to tour out in California. WTF is up with bands releasing new albums and then NOT touring to support them

swollen_shut 6/9/2009 12:36:59 PM

So? Anyone really give a fck?

ass_hamsters 6/9/2009 12:40:58 PM

never got into them, but this was a dumb news thread.

fuckyourxs 6/9/2009 12:46:19 PM

fck! I love this band. I really wish they'd play again. Such a great live band. Getting to see them every night for 30 days was so good.

I remember being drunk at a Twelve Tribes show and lifting up one of Adams dreadlocks and smelling it and not liking the outcome.

hunt_fish_with_dynamite 6/9/2009 1:25:26 PM

desertxrose 6/9/2009 5:53:49 PM

i tend to check the news here once a day. i'm extra glad i did today just to read this and lol. thank you, lambgoat.

forumdrama 6/9/2009 7:13:35 PM

No care. Saw this band twice live, and they were mediocre at best both times. At least we have a news bit to officially know they're still... inactive? Maybe the lack of activity itself is proof of that... Either ways. Whatev.

thetowerofrome 6/9/2009 8:21:57 PM

i also dug this band... midwest pandemic was solid.

Bulsnoklfif 6/14/2009 10:16:53 PM

Saw this band a lot in Dayton 7 or 8 years ago. Always thought their singer was alright, never really listened to them after Instruments.
