“The times fans have approached me in hysterics I’ve felt so awkward I’ve not known what to do. I don’t understand how people can hold court like that after shows like, ‘Come to me my children!’”—KEEP CALM and listen to Jonathan Pierce
Okay, when is Portamento coming out in the United States? (I only ask this due to the fact that I could imagine you knowing.) The Drums' site is incredibly difficult to understand. I can't tell if they mean it's out now digitally or if it's out physically. Any help?
Portamento was officially released in the US, on all formats, on the 6th- a day after the UK release
“Say we’ve just played Book of Stories and I’ve poured my heart into this really beautiful song that really affects me personally, and someone yells LETS GO SURFING! at me …I feel no connection to someone who screams from the side of the stage, “let’s go surfing” after each song”—Jonathan knows his real fans do not care for fucking surfing

nah thats just the drums effect it was a good first time for you, being small venue. can’t say I’ve ever had a bad time with the boys ha sometimes i think i love themtoo much but that can’t be a bad thing. and nice to meet ya
I always thought it was kind of interesting Jonny was gay if only because of his religious background, if it's as conservative as he describes than I'm sure it probably wasn't that easy to be gay. I kind of interpret some of the lyrics as being about that as well. Idk I just think he probably has some interesting experiences to draw on from his childhood in general and being gay only adds to that because of his background.
babe, have you got a download for portamento? i feel like crap asking but i'm broke and need it urgently
i was offered a link which has since been removed for violation I’m afraid. not that i condone it they’ve already been too generous letting us hear it. you could rip from individual tracks that are posted up on here? or just save up for the cd like your life depends on it
