The Juliana Theory‘s Brett Detar commented:
“20 years ago a little band of friends from a small town in Pennsylvania released an album we recorded on a shoestring budget in a converted garage. We were barely as old then as the record is now and some of us were younger than that but it changed all of our lives. Time moves so quickly but our connection to those magic-fill days of our youth is something that never really fades.
When Josh and I hit the road this past fall to play an acoustic tour we had an absolute blast reconnecting with each other, with these old songs, and especially with all of you who came out to sing along with us. That was the first real tour any version of the band had done in 14 years – but only a few months prior to that we genuinely didn’t know if we would ever play together again as a band.
Sometimes life has a way of taking the plans you make and laughing at them. Things that you have every intention of making happen sometimes fall apart in ways that are out of your control. I guess that’s a part of being human. But seeing so many of you come out to embrace the stripped down acoustic version of TJT warmed our hearts. Without fail, the number one question we got every night was “When will you play full band shows again?” Thank you for that – we listened.
So, for the 20th anniversary of Emotion Is Dead we will be playing the album in its entirety at a small number of shows, and to make it extra special we are teaming up with our friends in MAE who will be playing the 15th anniversary of their album The Everglow. Oh and don’t think we forgot, because like I said – we are listening to you all, we’ve partnered with our old friends at Tooth & Nail and Unoriginal Vinyl to finally give the album its long overdue second pressing on vinyl (and first as a double LP).
We will have a hand full of limited pressings with us at these shows and let me just say that they look gorgeous. We love ya and look forward to seeing you and thank you from the bottom of our hearts for still having a special place in yours for Emotion is Dead and a little band from Pennsylvania called Juliana Theory.
