Mike: "Isolation can get negative at times, because you start to feel like you're being arrogant or that we're doing it because we hate people so much.
I think this is a very important quote to remember. If they really hated their fans they wouldn't have put anything out at all and they certainly wouldn't have participated in WXAXRXP. They are indeed waiting for a special moment once again.
Well... let's not be so naive. Probably money is a good reason for them to release albums. Such good reason that we are charged for each new album, remix and also for their re-releases!
And regarding your second paragraph, let me tell you: In all these years since 2013 they have had a lot of special moments that they could have used in order to release an album. Yesterday (02022020) being a darn good one if you ask me. They aren't waiting for a special day to come. They are waiting to have the album completed and make some more ca$h. They are humans, with their regular jobs and family. They ain't running a non profit, man.
Regarding their participation in WXAXRXP because of the fans... LOL.
And I really like Boards of Canada, but come on...
