That's always the danger when you tour an album that isn't out yet, of course.

I don't see them adding any more songs until the proper tour later in the year. Warrel wasn't really down with most of the lyrics, so I don't expect they've even rehearsed any of the others.
This tour is just a warm up anyways. The new album has a simular feel to it as EOR does. The songs are shorter and more to the point like they were on that album. There is complexity on the songs though. I just think they're playing a few of the simpler one's first just because that's easiest until they learn how to do the rest live. Why did they do "Emptiness Unobstructed" twice?
