Wes got tired of loaning the other guys in the band money, so he's doing the next best thing and taking them out on tour to get a quick paycheck.

I've got to give this band a hand, 20 years is a long time to be around. I'd be stumped to think of another hardcore band that's been around that long.

Not having the primary songwriter on stage is essentially paying Wes to do karaoke with a cover band. Nostalgia is a helluva drug!

Wes Eisold Out To Be A Goth needs to cash in on hardcore again.

This phony wanted nothing to do with hardcore anymore until he realized he couldn't make enough money with Cold Cave but could make up the deficit with American Nightbore.

Brooklyn Steel yeah ok 1200 capacity when you've headlined shows in NYC at much smaller venues since your first cash-in.

"until he realized he couldn't make enough money with Cold Cave but could make up the deficit with American Nightbore. BK Steel yeah ok 1200 capacity when you've headlined shows in NYC at much smaller venues since your first cash-in."

Bad logic bro. LOL So jelly. Cap = 1800. AN sold out every NYC show they played for the past 8 years. Dude gets all the Cold Cave money and splits AN money five ways. Cold Cave packed out that venue on a Monday. I guess his bands are, whats the word, Popular?

Hey numbnuts first off it's still a cash-in regardless of splits they're fake. AN has not played NYC since 2011 and if they did they never "sold out" every show. Two Brooklyn Steel is 1200 capacity tops. Last AN headlined the Black N Blue Bowl and that shit did nowhere close to 1500. Brooklyn Steel is wayyy too small for AN. AN is so played out. So jelly? Take your lips off AN's collective cable. AN has been back too long to do big rooms that ship sailed years ago the cash in is stale pretzels.

Yea Cold Cave makes no money thats why he bought a house in the hollywood hills with hardcore street cred >> No he bought it with AN money added to the till. He's not doing AN for the love of the band or hardcore he does it cuz he doesn't make enough money with Cold Cave. AN is his supplemental income. He needed AN money to buy whatever house he'll lose cuz Cold Cave ain't gonna take him to retirement. Hollywood Hills of course. Dude was always a wannabe rockstar so why not go full on wannabe?

Yeah my dream was to be a 40 year old wannabe goth in skinny jeans who pretends he's 2000 hardcore for two weeks or so so he can make mortgage payments on a house in the Hollywood Hills (Wes.) He has to like women first to f uck anyone's girlfriend you jackass.

He'll have to get one when Cold Cave and the AN cash-in gravy train ends, and it will end. I guarantee he will not make the payments on his house doing anything but CC and AN. But you keep thinking he's gonna fck you bro.

Its called a music career. lots of people do it. with all his millionaire friends I think he'll be fine. You could be right he might have to cash in his stocks and sell his tesla trent reznor bought him or work at the bookstore he owns.

As a diehard AN fan who saw them 10+ times between 01-03, this band had been a hundred times better in recent times than they were in the past. The band, the voice, the presence. They actually play now instead of just flailing about.

Only Tim would mention Tim. That sad troll has been mia for 5 + years and no one cared. Except Tim. Dude was a pompous clown who got fired from anything he came close to. No such thing as a Tim sympathizer. Hi Tim.

Tickets? Your grown ass friends can't but their own tickets? I always laugh at people who buy more than one ticket. You're an adult, buy your own ticket and tell your friends to do the same. You actually have them pay you back? LOL. Grow up. Btw take Wes' dick out of your mouth.

Just chiming in cuz it's amazing that this grown adult baby man is angry at people who buy 2 tickets instead of one, for like a friend or loved one or whatevs. Just cuz you can't get any one to go somewhere with you doesn't mean the rest of us cant.

LOL you're so full of it. The band (no Cossar, who literally wrote every note), the voice (no disrespect to Wes but.. um.. no), the presence?? Flailing about?? Were you looking for a concert not a hardcore show? You have to be trolling. There's no way you're a real person.
