And only 2,000 copies. Should be enough but then again no one thought Saturday night Homecoming tickets would sell out in 45 minutes on the day of the general onsale either.

Re: 2020 Tour Dates! THERE ARE SO MANY

Hoping things will get mixed up a bit more when they come back in the summer/fall Agree on this point. I'm not backing off of any shows or anything but lately the sets have been more static lately than I can remember in the 10 years I've been following the band. It wouldn't hurt to rotate a few war...

Re: Homecoming 2020! Feb 13-15

I think it's impressive that DBT regularly play songs from each and every one of their albums. Very few bands manage that. And if you were at Homecoming you got at least 1 song from every album they've released.

Re: Homecoming 2020! Feb 13-15

Yeah, Cooley played too many repeats (and honestly more than he usually does over a 2-3 night run) but what are you gonna do? I complained a little before Saturday night's show but in the end I had a blast and Cooley is gonna do what Cooley is gonna do.

Re: The Unraveling

Is it just me, or are Cooley’s vocals on his two songs kind of muddled? Almost seem clearer in the live recordings I’ve heard of both songs. Love both songs, just interested in why the mixing sounds like it does. Patterson addressed this on the super secret 3DD Facebook group. Short version, Cooley...

I honestly didn't think much of it when I heard it live at the Orange Peel several year ago, and then he stopped playing it. It's the biggest surprise on the album for me, just a killer track.

I saw this premeried at the Orange Peel in 2017. It was dropped from the set shortly after. I'm a little surprised this made the record. I assumed it was one of those songs that wouldn't be recorded or would end up on a solo album.

I don't think there is a perfect solution that will satisfy everyone.

But that means s...

I wonder if Cooley could ever write enough songs for a real solo album. In the past he has struggled to write enough for a DBT record, even dipping into some much older songs during the recording of TBTD/GGB.
