Well this is weird.
I don't know. I've been gone for a while, but this seems fairly normal to me.

I thought the kids were no longer smoking the crack but apparently I was wrong.

This is wonderful misdirection by the band... 1 + 3 + 7 = 11 so it's obviously a tribute to Spinal Tap.  JP will be back stage telling people not to touch his guitars because he cherishes them and JMX will be screaming "rock and rolllll" while they're all jogging to the left to get to stage.  Can't believe you guys don't see that.  Such a fine line between stupid and clever...

Now with Twitler taking a high end steak of this caliber and insulting the cow that died for it by having it well done just shows zero respect for the product, which falls right in line with the amount of respect he shows for pretty much everything else.- Lonestar

Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

Even the dudes I hire to do my accounting are cursing at this - "fucking damn prog nerds" has been heard twice in my office this morning.  :lol

Someone on the DT subreddit found this photo here: https://www.gettyimages.fi/detail/photo/real-human-skull-profile-royalty-free-image/96370388

Which proves that the "137" was intentionally placed, rather than a marking that was already on the skull.

Some have already said that if you count 6DOIT as one song, and ITPOE as one song, and include ACOS, that's exactly 137 songs from all their released albums plus the only original song on the EP.

This to me means that the skull symbolizes the past, the android holding the skull is their present.

This album is about the fact that their past, symbolized by the skull, is dead. The new album is The Android, and it represents a new chapter in their lives (InsideOut records rather than Roadrunner and everything before it).

The android is holding the skull to acknowledge that even though the past is dead, they still put it on display as a form of respect. This coincides with their statements that the I&W tour was a huge inspiration, and also the fact that the DOT tour is going to celebrate SFAM.

And one final tidbit is the lyrics from the teaser: "Don't be afraid of letting go [of the past]. Open your heart, be set free"

"Tell us more Mr. Science"  Do your tee-shirts shrink in the wash too?

Well, that was 5 years before I joined so I'm safe... wait, which direction are we talking about here?

I think the post 4 above tells you all you need to know as to whether we are in the clever realm, or stupid one.
