Bad News For Blowfish and Strong Lions





I'm back after a crazy couple of weeks and unfortunately I don't have good news to share. This news sucks plain and simple, Robert Pollard has decided to stop touring indefinitely. After injuring himself on his most recent tour he's decided to take a break from playing shows. If you've seen him with GBV or with The Ascending Masters you know that he will be missed on the national touring circuit. That being said he has 7 new albums planned for release in the near future so there is a bit a good news to share. At 49 and the amount of time that he has spend on the road I knew that things would come to an end eventually. He hasn't ruled out playing Live again but as of now he will be close to home in Dayton, OH doing what's he's been doing for what seems like forever, recording and releasing pop/prog/rock magic.
