Think again, and again, and again, and again

Shudder To Think have already done a one-off reunion date; now, here comes the tour. Or a re-reunion, actually, as they got back together ten years ago as well.

Craig Werden explains why:

"Our music is continuing to seep out, like syrup from a tree or the remains of a sweet, sticky picnic. Every day, new people-- many too young to have caught us during the first go-round-- are contacting us after 'discovering' our music. I'm constantly meeting people who feel the same way about our music that we do, and it makes me feel indescribably good. This tour is our way of saying 'thank you.'"

- which is almost heartbreakingly sweet, and sounds genuinely heartfelt.

Those young 'uns would be probably too wee to remember video tape as well, so here's a special treat: a decaying video tape of a 1993 Toronto appearance by the band:
