Yep.Things happen out of the bands control sometimes.

All shows are cancelled, not just Foo. It wasn't their decision and yes it might be the right call. I have the right to be sad, that doesn't make me selfish. I think i'll stop reading tons of useless posts like last album isn't good and life is too precious to waste it complaining all the time.

Yes, it's ok to be disappointed, but there are bigger things going on in the world at the moment.You were saying that it is easy for people who have recently seen them to agree with the band as they haven't missed out.At the end of the day there will be another tour.There are some people who won't get that chance again to see another live show.Yes it's disappointing you have missed out but there is no point in moaning about it on here.Again, perspective.

All right,

what is going on? I´ll coming back from my roadtrip trough europe. Two months no Pc or f***ing iphone on my side, just my girl, my dog in our lovley T3 bus.

Whats about tihis countdown? Sorry, I´m a lazy bastard and won´t read all the comments....Did they really recorded some new stuff on the road? On the shots, Dave has no broken leg...this pics are older. Must be a shot before the "Scandinavia - incident".

The looped song sound like "Still" from IYH or the demo from All my life...

BTW...the 1x1 demos finally leaked trough the internet on youtube. Nice stuff!!! Sounds better than the actually record.

Cherrs!

No one is sure yet. Speculation is that it might be new songs that they recorded in Austin, Texas, but they haven't specified anything other than the countdown itself.

A bit late to the party on ALOT of things, dude.
The countdown is for the release of a 5 track EP that was recorded in Austin, Texas. There's an overwhelming amount of evidence. BTW, I believe Dave can actually walk again.

The demos leaked on Reddit in August. Needless to say, it blew up on here. Some say they were leaked by Dave himself... who knows.

I agree that it's the ep. Yes Dave can walk again.

Yes, he can walk again. At the Vienna gig where I was, he said that it was the first time (since Sweden) he walked through a City (without that sexy cast).

So Vienna and Bologna were the last gigs on the throne.

It would be too cool if they just had no countdown. And no Information about a new Album, EP or whatever. Just release it without saying anything. Then People go to the store and see a fucking new FF Album I'd Freak out.

I wouldn't be happy at all since I go to a record store very rarely these days so I wouldn't know about it!

From Taylor's Twitter account it appears that he might be cutting his hair........so maybe the countdown is to reveal the new Taylor hair

Maybe they are all having a make over - and this will be the big reveal
