The first time I heard the Obits was when they performed on the Jimmy Fallon show. They played Fake Kinkade and right away I was hooked. It was one of those songs that you hear and it makes you want to do two things. Hear the band again and find out as much as you can about them. I downloaded the torrent of the album and researched the band. I believe in supporting bands so after I heard the whole album - which was amazing from "cover to cover" I went down to our cities only Indie record store and purchased the Album. It is a shame that radio Music Programmers are not more interested in broadening peoples horizons and getting them into new relevant bands rather then playing the One hit itunes wonders of the day. Anyways I know the album came out in 2009, but I did not get it until 2010 and it is my favourite album I have heard this year and I am trying to getting everyone I know to give a listen to this amazing new band called the Obits. Thank You for making good music and please come to London (my home town) or Toronto. And if you are a fan SUPPORT THIS BAND! BUY THEIR ALBUM! Email your radio station and say "Why are you not playing these guys? It's the only way to make a change!

I really appreciate you taking the time to recognize my post. I posted this a while ago and after reading it again I am a little embarrassed that I did not proof read, what I wrote before posting it. I am a self proclaimed Music Geek. I am proud of being a part of the Music Geek Nation and I think my time would be far better served putting it into this site rather then a site like facebook etc. This site offers a lot of really cool stuff for music lovers. Anyway, thanks again! Your post made my day!
