so just curious how everyone feels about these... personally i miss the old synergy site and the rumor pit, it was much more informative and we actually got news on a regular basis, go back and look at that site and the amount of information provided and the communication from the 10club, it was unbelievable and far outweighs anything the current site has ever provided... and as for the pssts, i'm one of the few fans that doesn't have the luxury of being online or on my phone 24/7 waiting for one and hoping i'll get lucky and be able to grab a poster or whatever it may be since it seems like everything is limited edition these days... but i have to work and have a life away from my phone, so what can you do? hoping to start a conversation to change the way things are on this site... all opinions are welcome, the poll's more of a wishlist...

    everything's fine, shut up and take my money!!!

    Sorry - There is nothing to update on.  Their albums take 5+ years to make.  How many monthly updates can they do?  40 months to go!   32 months to go!  Get excited only 18 months until the album drops!    They do one to two legs of tours MAX per year. 

    What updates are you expecting and how will it change your life or decisions?  Should you know that a new DVD will drop a month from now or just need to know the day it is released?   Does learning an album is going to be released on October 31st in April or September matter?   What does it matter when you hear about it?

  • But just a "we had a great week in the studio" would be great. Instead, we get a "we don't even know when we'll be back together" update.

    If the latter is the truth, which was stated in an interview and not here, why would tenclub post the prior?

    Just glad there are so many bootlegs left to hear while the tap drips, slowly. Very slowly.

    I have no idea what the website looked like at this time. But anything with a rumor pit sounds pretty damn good.

    Agree the pssts are ridiculous. Anyone with a job has almost zero shot.

    I would put zero blame as well on the staff if you want more info.  They can’t announce tour rumors because the band does and has changed their plans at the last minute.  The band loves flexibility and thus they can’t announce anything because the band can say at any time, “well, we need more songs.  Let’s come back in a year and finish it up”.  They don’t have a label pushing them for an album and don’t need one to fill up a stadium.

    I wish they would get the annual single out somewhat on time. I love vinyl and look forward to those 45s. 

    Im not sure what info the band really needs to give us. Just doesn’t seem to be a lot of news to throw our way. They do let us know about side projects and other stuff so no complaints here. Obviously I think all of us would love some new music from PJ but they have been working at their own pace for years now. I do wish they’d release some demos or b-sides someday. Doesn’t seem like they have much interest in getting any of this stuff out though. We know there is leftover stuff that didn’t make albums. I hope to hear some of it someday (Of The Earth studio!)

    The “psssts” don’t bother me. I’ve never really felt I’ve missed out on much.

    I loved the rumor pit. That said, the monthly newsletter is fine.  I just wish there was more news. Albums, tours, etc. But at this point, I'm good with the way they do the updates.
