THE FORCE REUNITES


Hello all...

The Force, my band before I joined AFI, is reuniting for the first time in 10 years to play three special shows. This will be the first time I've stepped onto the stage with Matt Wedgley (Viva Hate), Mark Roustabout (The Roustabouts) and Chad Cox since we broke up in 1998, and I'm really excited! We hope these shows will give our fans (as well as those who missed The Force the first time around) a chance to see hardcore like we played it 10 years ago.

To listen, go check out (and add) The Force's myspace: www.myspace.com/theforcerip I'm not asking you to...I'm telling you to.

Like I said, The Force will only be playing three shows. The first show will be in our hometown of Grass Valley, CA followed by two more California shows. My apologies to everyone outside of California. I wish we could play everywhere, but we have to limit it to the following shows:

August 29, 2008 - Miner's Foundry in Nevada City (Grass Valley), CA
August 30, 2008 - 924 Gilman St. in Berkeley, CA
August 31, 2008 - Chain Reaction in Anaheim, CA


Tickets on sale here: www.theforcerip.com

Also, we will be releasing a complete discography, containing every song The Force ever recorded. The limited edition, 21-song double-LP will be sold at the shows as well as online while supplies last.

Join our mailing list at www.theforcerip.com to receive personal updates from me about the shows, the discography and a few other surprises!

I hope to see everyone there!

Stay fresh,
Hunter

the infamous maria said...

Karlye said...

Actually Chain Reaction is only 4 hours away, but I know I still won't be able to go. Dammit.

ThisSideUp said...

It's so not fair that California gets all the good shows. Want to know what happens in Calgary? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. So I demand that you have tons of extra fun for me as I won't be having any. I do sincerely mean that.

propelwave said...

pirate said...

There's definitely no way I'll make it to those shows, but I'm sure you'll have a great turnout anyways =] Hope you all have an AMAZING time.

Gilman? I totally got warm fuzzies reading that. <3 You'll never let me down, will you?!

Much love and be sure to save one of those LPs for me.. =]

Aw, damn. I can't go. I'll be with you in spirit! So if an invisible force tackles you, that's me.

I'm so happy for you. *grins*

Jason said...

Dammit, this is proof that I live on the wrong coast.

BlaqkInk said...

Amazingly awesome. Wish I could go but I live so far away anyway.

So here's a completely irrelevant question for you:

Do you actually know how to play the saxophone? I play and when I read that you do, I got all excited. I have to know if it's true!
