Om reluctantly announce they will be postponing their upcoming tour dates following a skateboarding injury sustained by drummer Emil Amos. The trio, which is rounded out by bassist/vocalist Al Cisneros and multi-instrumentalist Robert AA Lowe, are working on rescheduling the full run starting in mid-November.

Get well soon Emil! Until then, at least we can crank some tracks from their new LP Adviatic Songs, out now on Drag City.

Dude you are an adult. Unless your name is Tony Hawk, lose the skateboard.

^ Are you guys kidding, ripping on skating as an adult? Its fun as shit, who cares how old you are.

Seriously - What makes skating as any more absurd that playing with a basketball or riding a bike?

12:57 - Exercising and hobbies are things that adults do. On occasion injuries happen and adults deal with it.

Let me guess, you don't exercise in any way.

Seems the BV crowd would rather that a musician get injured playing racquetball than skateboarding. Everybody can go back to work now . . .

Posted by Anonymous | July 26, 2012 1:13 PM

I can't fathom why someone would hate skateboarding as passionately as 1:12. Its just weird.

Posted by Anonymous | July 26, 2012 1:17 PM

Skateboarding is for teenagers. Old bones break much easier. When I see some old dude on a skateboard I laugh at them. move on with your life bro.

Posted by Anonymous | July 26, 2012 1:21 PM

"Racquetball is also nonsense that fat people who go to NYSC partake in."

For someone with such loaded judgements I'd be interested to know what you do to exercise?

Walking in quote marks? Yeah b/c we ALL know you couldn't POSSIBLY get any exercise from "walking". YOU ARE A "MORON"!!!

I bet the crossover between adults who skateboard and pizza delivery guys is pretty high.

Not quite as high as the anonymous trolls on here and living in your mother's basement.

I agree that "its probably sadder being 30 some odd years old trashing on an internet blog. Just because you grow older doesn't mean you have to give up on things that you enjoy you cynical twat."... but what if trashing on an internet blog is what he truly enjoys?

You know who I look down on? Anonymous internet commenters hating just to hate. Why don't you pick up a skateboard, get off your fat ass and go outside and get some exercise.

Posted by Anonymous | July 27, 2012 12:58 AM

I agree exercise is good for us all, but skateboarding is not exercise. You want to make a point, direct the fat asses to go for a jog or join a gym, not coast around bothering people on a child's toy.

Also, I find sausages uniformly laughable, but I have also found that a good measuring rod of who is a hipster transplant is the answer to the question "Do you like Wilco?".

Posted by Anonymous | July 27, 2012 10:25 AM

People walk around modern-day Brooklyn asking "Do you like Wilco?" Jesus. Even asking a question like that would've gotten you a smack in the head back in the day. I'm glad I left.
