Anticipation definitely starting to rise. On the bright side being the other side of the Atlantic means I can't feel bad about not making the effort to get there.

Sounding awesome, I was sceptical about anything really massive happening, but that's steadily dissipating.

Could be something related to that specific track. Could be something related to the picture/location. Could be something completely different online. 3 and 1/2 more hours to go.

To me "asked to be discreet" hints at something bigger than just the new song played in Detroit. I'm guessing whole album. I am really hoping this night ends with someone frantically telling us to check our bleep accounts.
All of old. Nothing else ever. Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better.

Ah ok, so @ Midnight GMT time they are either going to release the album early, play a new track with a video somewhere or do a live gig/set.
I'll keep an eye on here so.

Side note: Jaysus, been a while since been on here properly lol, hello everyone again!

i don't know but for some reason, in my dream two nights, I went to a happening like this and it had allot to do with this game: Image

I didn't meet the brothers, and I only saw a musicvideo behind bars, but that feeling was really unique.

Just thought I'd share.

Keep in mind that midnight GMT is 1am in the UK now. Daylight saving time!

Coincidences are pretty powerful, although they don't really do much besides be coincidences.

Seems like this landing in our Bleep accounts would defeat the purpose of the listening party in Paris tomorrow.

Hello to all of you!

My account on here has long since lapsed, and had to create a new one. This whole build-up to the album is so intense, it really makes up for the years of cryptic messages and (at times) blind faith that something would happen.

Bit of a nightmare that it coincides with my PhD viva tomorrow, but good for taking the mind off such trivial things.

:D

WATMM's JasonDonervan (apologies if they post here too) has posted some images to their Tumblr: http://boardsofcanada2013.tumblr.com

I assume they're from today (there's a picture of his SatNav and tonx's Twitter updates).

Love this one:

People on the ground have been asked to be "discreet" so don't hold your breath

There isn't enough happening here yet for me to be able to say anything about the scale of what exactly might go down.

I'm apparently the first of us to land. There is a sort of light caretaker/security situation that may thwart other earlybirds. Unsure. Only a small handful of people on site yet. I basically snuck in.
