It is a terrible, terrible, tearful day. Or I should say, it was in September. This is what I get for
A) Not being able to acquire up to the minute information on Chatmonchy (in English at least).
B) Not checking as periodically as I usually do for new information on things such as new albums.
The last time I checked up on one of the BEST BANDS EVER was back in sometime last Spring (2011) or maybe early summer, though at the time I became obsessed with The Birthday Massacre, and listened to nothing but them all summer, by fall, ceramics had begun again, and I started getting obsessed with Led Zeppelin and newer stuff like Awolnation (they’re okay) and shit, and it wasn’t until today that I:
A) Became really really happy when I discovered that they had put out a new album, YOU COME, way back around the same time I got obsessed with The Birthday Massacre. Then, reading the wikipedia page farther (my main source of Chatmonchy which is SAD), I saw the WORST FUCKING THING EVER.
MY FAVORITE…nay…..THE ONLY JAPANESE BAND/ONE OF MY TOP 3 FAVORITE BANDS OF ALL TIME IS NO MORE!?!?!?!?!?
I’m embarrassed that I didn’t cry immediately on the spot.
And you know what really sucks? Their album (which is now their Final Album), kicks serious fucking ass. I guess they at least went out on a winning note (THEY NEVER HAD A LOSING NOTE THOUGH WTFFFFFFF)
I don’t have any words right now I’m in complete disarray. Devastated. Why is this happening!? WHY KUMIKO!?!?!?!?!?
I can’t even put any pictures into this post. (EDIT: I WENT BACK AND DID THAT SHIT….RESPECT)
I have to stop now.
I’m so depressed.
The irony is so sad from that video…
Thank you Chatmonchy for all of your incredible music. I’m going to miss Kumiko, but look forward to seeing what Chatmonchy will be like in the future…you know…..with NO FUCKING DRUMMER WHAT THE F-
