Don’t expect any new material from The Promise Ring
The Promise Ring finished up their 2012 reunion jaunt last week and according to a new interview, that’s all you should expect at this time. MTV Hive caught up with drummer Dan Didier after their Fun Fun Fun Fest set and asked about the possibility of keeping the reunion going with new material. This was his response
“We are just robots playing songs that we used to play,” Didier said of the band’s current creative ambitions. “There’s no interest at all to write new music with us. We’re just doing our songs that people know and love. We definitely don’t need this band to fulfill the creative need that we may have — we have other avenues. This is just, let’s do this, play these songs again to people who want to hear them, and have a good time doing it. That’s basically the alpha and omega of what this is.”
While Didier stopped short of saying that the reunion was finished as of the Fun Fun Fun Fest appearance, he also added that they have no intention of playing again. “I think this is basically it,” he said. “I’m not closing the book on it, but there’s no plan whatsoever. But I mean, if something comes up, we all know the songs again.”
Hopefully all of you saw them again when you had the chance is the takeaway from this I guess.
