Starting this week, The Tripwire is going to be gathering its personal belongings and moving to a new, much more plush web address: TheFader.com. Kinda awesome, right? The TW content and commentary you’ve come to love, hate and possibly lust after will be living there from now on, a transition that starts today and will be complete by the end of the week. To check out the rest of this post, head here. A taste you’ll find below:
It’s nice to see a band that isn’t the Arcade Fire or Hold Steady doing justice to the Boss. Of course, this could mean nothing beyond the band finding a song they thought would make for a fun, one-off live cover. Wouldn’t it be great, though, if they really were going into a Springsteen phase, and that eventually their whole career could be compartmentalized by which iconic ’80s albums they sounded like at any given time? Like their She’s So Unusual phase, their Appetite for Destruction phase, their It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back phase?
See you in the big leagues, everybody.
