    “we told him over the phone”. Come on Matt, you know you called your dad and had him call the label, just to have some monkey over there break the news. By the way, you need to wait a little longer before you borrow from Mastadon album names.

    I wonder how that went?
    Matt: “HeyTravis, this is going to be better for you in the years to come. For your own health and well-being as well as our own. I hope you do amazingly, no matter what you pick in life to do next.”
    Travis: “Uhhh… are you kicking me out of the band? Dammit.”

    Well now that they’ve kicked out all the talent in the band their new set of Metallica songs will be even less interesting.
