I just hope this means a tour of some sorts in the US. I need to see David Gilmour before he calls it a career.

Sure sounds like unfinished/leftover studio material being finished. I would guess we could see a David Gilmour tour but if the Pink Floyd tour didn't happen 10 years ago, it's definitely not happening now.

A tour would be great but seems doubtful. Even if they did it would probably only hit A markets and the prices would be ungodly.

I'd settle for a new album. I don't remember caring for the Division Bell real well but it's been awhile. As long as it's no worse than Division Bell I'd be ok w/ that.

I thought you were satirizing by making up some shitty festival name that complemented Uproar or Mayhem, but then I saw that there's a thread actually devoted to that festival and that it actually exists. :eyes: :hecho:

And that the people on this site are more interested in discussing it than the possibility of a new Pink Floyd album. :hecho: :hecho:

Probably because a festival with 30+ bands is more interesting than what will almost definitely be a disappointment to anyone who'd hold their breath on Pink Floyd doing anything in the future

This should clear a few things up.

From: http://consequenceofsound.net/2014/07/pink-floyd-to-release-new-album-the-endless-river-in-october/
This year marks the 20th anniversary of Pink Floyd’s fourteenth and final album, Division Bell. Beyond a deluxe reissue, David Gilmour apparently plans to mark the occasion with a brand new LP entitled The Endless River, which will be released in October.

And from: http://consequenceofsound.net/2014/07/more-details-on-pink-floyds-new-album-no-roger-waters-no-plans-for-tour/
More details have surfaced regarding Pink Floyd’s surprise new album, The Endless River.

As previously reported, the album features unreleased music dating back to 1994, from sessions involving David Gilmour, Nick Mason, and the late Richard Wright. Thus, as one might expect, founding member Roger Waters will not be featured on the album, according to a new report from UK newspaper The Sun (via Brain-Damage). Rogers left the band following 1983′s release of The Final Cut and was not involved in these initial sessions, not Gilmour and Mason’s recent efforts to finish the material.

The Sun also reports that the band has no plans for an accompanying tour.

From PF's Facebook:
Pink Floyd can confirm that they are releasing a new album "The Endless River" in October 2014. It is an album of mainly ambient and instrumental music based on the 1993/4 Division Bell sessions which feature David Gilmour, Nick Mason and Richard Wright. The album is produced by David Gilmour with Phil Manzanera, Youth and recording engineer Andy Jackson. Work is still in progress, but more details to come at the end of the Summer.
Their instrumental stuff is amazing so this will be great to hear for sure.

It's funny how people ripped Roger for doing The Wall tour, but the other guys toured under Pink Floyd for years without it's most important member.

I can't tell if you're being sarcastic or if you're being some weird vinyl hipster by calling the second half of the album side C/D, which I assume would be based on the incorrect assumption that A Momentary Lapse of Reason is a double LP.

:lol: I suppose I mean the B side, I don't remember. I mean from "On The Turning Away" through "Sorrow" is a fantastic sequence of music, whatever that is. Better than any stretch of anything on The Wall. :ass:

But, to solidify my hipster status, I actually do own the album on vinyl (which I had professionally cleaned about a year and a half ago), and I insist on listening to the album through that medium.

Even for somebody who deeply appreciates Pink Floyd, those albums meander too much and lack the intensity that Watters brings. On the other hand, The Wall is on the other end of the spectrum and even though it has its moments, is a little too melodramatic for me.

SignoftheHammer
07-07-2014, 10:02 PM
Momentary Lapse was an alright album, considering it was recorded by a band that was still trying to put itself back together. Sorrow is a true PF classic.

Division Bell on the other hand, is absolutely fantastic. The atmosphere is calm, but can be dark and tense at the same time. Gilmour really nailed it on that one.

If this "new" album is half as good as Division Bell was, it's already a success.

Dude you need to chill the fuck out and accept that opinions aren't facts.

Gilmour is as equal a part of Pink Floyd as Waters was.

Besides, you haven't heard one bit of Endless River yet. It's been a while that I listened to Division Bell & Lapse, but I liked what I heard.

Yep.

I can see why some might not like The Division Bell too much but how can you not like A Momentary Lapse Of Reason? The songs range from very good to great on that album. There isn't one bad spot on it from what I recall. Most importantly, it still sounded like Pink Floyd (so did The Division Bell) and they proved they could make a great album without Roger Waters. If you had someone listen to Momentary Lapse and didn't tell them that Waters wasn't in the band, they would never be able to tell. That's how good of a Pink Floyd album it is.

:agree:

Momentary Lapse and Division Bell are so much better than The Final Cut. Waters was an egomaniac and he thought he could make another chapter to The Wall. He fired Richard Wright. That album didn't work out too well and the band broke up. Gilmour/Mason/Wright got to keep the name of the band and Waters got to keep The Wall as part of the settlement.


Edit: By the way, if Waters was the genius of the band why are his solo albums so bad? They were obviously better as a band and nothing will approach the classic material. But the 2 post-Waters discs are much more "Floyd" than Waters solo albums.

It's a mighty fine album, but we get it now. And do you want to know why I'm a "Gilmour fan"? Because, and this is a fact, he's a very down to earth person.

You look at their classic albums, Roger pretty much wrote all the lyrics and contributed more as far as songwriting altogether, and that goes for the music too. He also came up with all the concepts and probably most of the arrangements.

That's the one thing they couldn't do without Roger. A Momentary Lapse Of Reason has a shitload of outside writers. You guys are praising it like Gilmour, Wright, and Mason did it by themselves. If they didn't miss him, why get a bunch of outside help writing the bulk of the songs? Maybe you guys forgot that part. I agree Roger didn't do anything special after The Wall, but you guys forgot some important facts. I'll come back later to see what kind of a comeback you guys post.:lol:

I am not downplaying the role that Waters played, especially on the later 70's albums. None of their output separately was as good as their work together. But he didn't do it alone, by any means, and I think he proved that with his solo albums. If he was the sole creator/writer, etc. and he was just carrying the team on his back, then he should have been able to continue the stellar output on his own.

And don't get me wrong, I love The Wall and I have seen Waters solo 4 times. Every show has been amazing and I would see him again given the chance. But he has only played 70's Floyd. I have only seen him play 2 of his own songs and they were definitely not the highlight of the show.

Many good points. I just wanted everybody to know that they needed help on that album to make it what it is. Not only with the songwriting, but I forgot to mention that they had a bunch of additional musicians play on the album as well. It was like everybody and their brother played on it. Too bad they broke up obviously.

I haven't met him, I've read many interviews and some comments from people who actually did met him.

And uh, I also said that Waters & Gilmour are both equally part of Floyd's past.

I don't have high hopes (ha!) for this new album but I am definitely in the pro-Gilmour camp. I think Lapse was a great album and Division Bell was OK with a few really good songs on it. I don't understand the rabidness of Waters' fans where they seem to think Pink Floyd had no right to go on without him when bands change members and keep going all the time. Waters drove Floyd into the ground with The Final Cut, there's no way they could have kept going after that.
