Tour Posters Based On Song Titles?

Post by shaneoftheroad » Thu Mar 15, 2012 9:15 pm

Could it be the posters represent different song titles on the album? Seems plausible but it's not solid. Check it out.

"Hypocritical Kiss"

"Freedom At 21"

"Hip (Eponymous) Poor Boy"

Oh man, now I'm really eager to see the rest.


How about the one from the TMR show? Part of the pattern, or something separate?

Right now I'm thinking it's something separate but I could be completely wrong. Unless we dig really deep and say since the peacock is walking away it could be "Take Me With You When You Go". haha

By the way, I'm taking bets on who will be the first to say "you fucking idiots, it doesn't mean anything! They're just fucking posters!" There's always one. 8-)

Shane I like where you're going with this and wanted to toss this out there. The white peacock on the TMR poster reminds me of the postcard from the LI tri. With the email convo between JW and RJ printed on the insert leading to Jack using some of the lines for Machine Gun Silhouette either that or Love Interruption seems reasonable. Even if they aren't meaning to do it, I bet we can still manage to shoehorn every song from this album into the poster series. Cheers.

I just came back from the Little Room and looks like someone kinda had this theory before me. Sharp as tacks, we lot.

this isn't anything new. Rob looks at interviews Todd the same as well as listening to the music. You'll find a TON of artists gravitated immediately to Rolling in on a burning tire before the album was officially released. Of course you've seen the Rob Todd collab but there's this also:

"Rolling in on a burning tire, you're going to set my house on fire, just to show me you were there."
