    They are currently writing their fourth record.

    I saw that on social media! Starting the recording process, correct? I thought melophobia was a great progression to a newer sound while still staying true. I hope they can continue that, but I will probably love anything lol

    actually, I got the impression they were writing, not yet recording. but maybe I read it wrong.

    just last night, a guy urged me to check them out.

    which album should I start with? I think he had been listening to melophobia.

    I would honestly go in order.

    Self titled
    Thank you happy birthday
    Melophobia

    They also have a live cd/dvd that is really good. And about a full albums worth of b sides.

    The two schulz brothers also had a band called Perfect Confusion prior to CtE, that they refuse to talk about (except for saying it was crap), but I liked it.

    I can honestly say that I like every single song on their 3 records. (And I can't say that for PJ... I'm lloking at you Vitalogy...) I would go in order too, but I think my favorite is Thank You Happy Birthday.

    Saw them at Red Rocks on Monday and all I can say is, "Wow!" They play with so much energy and at the end of the show, Matt crowd surfed from the stage all the way to the top. 70 rows! Was quite a sight to see and took me back to 1995 and a band called Pearl Jam that also played with intense energy. CTE is one of the better newer bands making music today.

    Never really got into them. Saw them at the Orion Music Festival a few years ago though and thought they were real good. Dug some of the songs i heard like come a little closer. Although didn't really care for ain't no rest for the wicked and in one ear (got overplayed way too much, IMO).

    1 of the 2 bands I love every single one of their songs. (Gaslight is the other!) But will be seeing these guys for he 4th time at Firefly Festival this year. Yes, they play the same set every night, But you are right, the energy and intensity is so great.

    He's a SABERTOOTH TIGER!

    Saw them last night in MN. They've improved their show quite a bit from the last time I saw them opening for STP in 2010. Was a fun show and they sounded great.

    They are on the bill for a local radio station's "Chill on the Hill," and their day's line up looks pretty solid, so thinking I'm gonna get to see them again! They kicked major ass opening for The Black Keys last year.

    I'm thinking about it too, and you are right about their day's line-up. Too bad the other day looks shitty to me. I'd like to see Weezer, but other than that I have no interest.

    Thst is terrible! They are expecting him to be up and running by 7/11? I ruptured my ACL and broke the side of my leg, a lighter injury, and I promise you that there would have been no way I could envision returning to that type of activity that fast. I was in physical therapy 3x a week for 3 months and would have been longer had insurance coverage continued. I was 25 and actually bounced back fast considering. 

    Unless they can plunk him in a chair, I don't see it happening. I predict them postponing until early fall. 

    It's a great album. I wish their tour was swinging by a bit closer than Cincy.
