Coalesce taking "a break"

After several years of relatively consistent activity, it seems that Coalesce may once again be going into hibernation. Bass player Nathan Ellis has issued the following: "It's been a fun couple of years. We've had excellent tours with bands we love (Converge, Harvey Milk, Torche, Kylesa, Atlas Moth, Gaza, Touche Amore, Black Breath), been to Europe, East Coast, West Coast, released a new record and a follow-up EP, played some great festivals and had the opportunity to see some old friends, and meet a ton of new people. "This is a good time for a break. Sean just bought a new house, Junior is starting his new business, Jes is putting the finishing touches on his PhD, and I'm going to sit on my couch and watch Shaun of the Dead. Thanks for your continued support. Even if Jes put his thumb in your eye, I spit on you, Sean puked RIGHT in front of you and Junior gave you a sweaty hug."

"Sean just bought a new house with all the cash from Coalesce themed machetes & morphing coffee mugs"

warnerve 6/19/2010 11:06:48 AM

good. keep it that way


shiza 6/19/2010 11:34:49 AM

best news i've heard on lambgoat in quite sometime.


ballsballsballsneenuballs 6/19/2010 11:35:08 AM

A break for coalesce could be for the summer .. or for 2 years. lets hope it's the summer. I know they aren't done making music. I can feel it in my bones.


onemeansquid 6/19/2010 12:36:46 PM

glad i finally got to see them live. they were incredible. hopefully they come back from this (again)


GreenAppleQuickStep 6/19/2010 12:43:36 PM

That sucks.


MarginError 6/19/2010 1:17:45 PM

Expected, but still, we'll hear more from them. LOL @ the negativity. Glad they even got back together in the first place.


spread____em 6/19/2010 1:27:59 PM

i dont mind their music, but what a bunch of hipster gays


withdeadhandsrising 6/19/2010 1:44:01 PM

WHAT MORE DO YOU WANT FROM THEM


chitownbeatdown 6/19/2010 2:08:31 PM

gonna hate on Coalesce? really? I will never understand you fcks.


xavengerx 6/19/2010 2:31:56 PM

They play if they wanna play. COALESCE rules.


ballsballsballsneenuballs 6/19/2010 2:49:56 PM

RE: spread em: "HIPSTER gayS"?! are you fcking serious? Watch your mouth, boy. You have no idea what the hell you're talking about.


ballsballsballsneenuballs 6/19/2010 2:54:55 PM

RE: chitownbeatdown: There's nothing to understand about GOATers. Most of them just listen to really shitty, repetitive, predictable metal and cruise forums looking for something to hate.. makes 'em feel better about their shitty lives.


casketofaids 6/19/2010 3:10:42 PM

I hope it's a "permanent" break followed by a "van flip"


freakboy666 6/19/2010 3:34:45 PM

A break is better than a break up!

well ain't that a motherfcker


myrevolution 6/19/2010 6:01:43 PM

@ballsballsballsneenuballs u mad


emoxfag 6/19/2010 6:42:30 PM

at least i don't have to go see a ninth final show this time...


xSHAT_CREWx 6/19/2010 10:16:15 PM

the gays that are saying "good" are the same gays that were posting "coalesce" in "bands you wish to see re-unite" threads a few years back


stopthefaggotry 6/20/2010 3:13:15 AM

i guess irony runs rampid with people. they'll get back together again.


thaw24 6/20/2010 4:59:41 AM

i personally prefer converge over coalesce. vocalist has a more raspy scream


yasaf 6/20/2010 7:54:43 AM

thank you, thaw24.


Godfatherofsoul 6/20/2010 11:04:08 AM

chitownbeatdown 6/19/2010 2:08:31 PM gonna hate on Coalesce? really? I will never understand you fcks. "hate on" I was joking about the absurdity of the merch they dropped last year, doesn't mean I dislike or "hate" the band


MarginError 6/20/2010 1:50:28 PM

absurd as it was, they only made 25 of those knives, and then another smaller run due to demand. The coffee mug thing is pretty common now though. Even your faves Harvey Milk have one, GFOS.


MarginError 6/20/2010 1:51:12 PM

It'll be more absurd when someone hocks it on eBay for $300.


aaron_carter 6/20/2010 4:13:23 PM

fck houses, businesses, schools and Shaun of the Dead.


obscenities 6/20/2010 4:32:05 PM

fck shit stack


xmusicislifex 6/20/2010 7:25:29 PM

I respect that he is honest about doing fck all after this like 90% of bands "hibernating"


germania 6/20/2010 9:26:55 PM

hipster gays? wha? coalesce fcking rules, fck you guys


iprayadean 6/21/2010 3:26:04 AM

fckin' stoners


iprayadean 6/21/2010 3:28:32 AM

btw, hipster gays, plz. make something more than a post on lg.


Omegaman 6/21/2010 11:14:21 AM

Still more relevant than your worthless lives.


fukuimdrunk 6/21/2010 1:30:16 PM

This sucks ass.


Landmine_spring 6/21/2010 8:13:10 PM

@withdeadhandsrising : SOME SORT OF APOLOGYYYY!


ballsballsballsneenuballs 6/21/2010 11:38:29 PM

Everyone is blowing this out of proportion. It's not that bad folks. They have families and lives to attend to... they aren't done making music.


ballsballsballsneenuballs 6/21/2010 11:38:43 PM

They just finished 2 records and several tours including europe. That's more activity in 1 year than in the last 10. I'd take a break too


thaw24 6/21/2010 11:47:18 PM

I want a coalesce box real bad


noaone 6/22/2010 12:36:32 AM

bummer. maybe the casket lottery can get back together now.
