elblueblazer - 6-29-2009 at 04:12 PM

Sarbear - 6-29-2009 at 04:20 PM

that's what i'm thinking, is ima

neckbeard - 6-29-2009 at 04:22 PM

yep, Ima

elblueblazer - 6-29-2009 at 04:22 PM

the record has been finished for a while now...the songs are gonna be old as fuck to US!!! i hope they have time for some new songs too!!!

Sarbear - 6-29-2009 at 04:24 PM

that would be nice.

so 2 albums in 4 months?

fredeggert - 6-30-2009 at 01:43 PM

plenty of time to get the 150 posts and get to know the old songs :P

Phobiac - 6-30-2009 at 08:29 PM

same trip...

beedun - 7-1-2009 at 05:47 PM

BAH! How depressing

I have a strange feeling that ima's days are numbered which I really hope is not the case. I think it may depend on the success of esmz... Speaking of esmz, the are going to be playing in Minneapolis on August 2nd. Anyone going?

Sarbear - 7-2-2009 at 08:19 AM

I'll be at the Chicago show Aug 3rd

imarob2 - 7-2-2009 at 07:01 PM

yeah, i know it sucks that theyve delayed the release AGAIN

the way i see it, we're hearing a lot more new stuff from them now than happened between the self titled and monument. we seriously heard four new songs before creeps me out popped up.

sara, im lookin forwrd to meeting you and justy in chicago!

Delta - 7-3-2009 at 02:00 AM

i'm guessing no one will be at the world cafe philly show : /

ToxicAvenger27 - 7-3-2009 at 08:46 AM

it'd be nice if they were touring again, i saw them in minnesota and it made my life...

but its worth the wait.

beedun - 7-4-2009 at 07:10 PM

Toxic - where did you see them in MN. To my knowledge they have played here 3 times, 2 of which I have attended...

ToxicAvenger27 - 7-10-2009 at 06:20 AM

They played the first ave club in june or july 2006, with She Wants Revenge and Mellowdrome. Somewhere, ive got pictures im still meaning to scan in from that, not very good, but it was an awesome show! Alex was climbing all over the amps and stuff, and was hiding behind a trash can in black jettas XD. I woulda been on the floor, near turbotito, in the Ima Robot shirt.

As for the Edward Sharpe gigs, i'll be camping over the weekend there, but the Aug 3rd show i might try making it to. It'd be cool to make it a big get-together!

I will!

beedun - 7-10-2009 at 10:26 AM

Toxic -that show was great and the last time I have seen them play live. Alex was indeed funny hiding in the trashcan... If you are going to be at the Aug 2nd show let me know. Damn I bet I haven't been to a concert at the Entry for 15+ years.. That makes me feel old.

ToxicAvenger27 - 7-10-2009 at 12:08 PM

Beedun - probably not the one on the 2nd, but i'll see when i'm returning. the 3rd in Chicago is looking more likely, sorry...

lomax - 7-31-2009 at 05:22 AM

ah man, i miss this band so much

(IMA)Elmo - 9-30-2009 at 10:45 AM

2 albums in one year?

Delta - 3-13-2010 at 04:21 PM

my heart skipped many beats, I past out woke up and wanted to share this w. yallz

via teh facebooks:

THE NEW ALBUM IS READY TO DROP JUST PICKING A RELEASE DATE BASED ON ALL THE HURDLES of self-release... lawyers, manufacturers, blahblah. VERY SOON and we r VERY excited to share the album and videos with u!!!!!

neckbeard - 3-13-2010 at 05:21 PM


imarob2 - 3-14-2010 at 06:03 AM

multiple videos! that sounds like fun

Sarbear - 3-14-2010 at 06:14 AM

This could get interesting.

imarob2 - 3-14-2010 at 01:32 PM

i find it a little bit funny how the band used to complain about the restrictions placed upon them by the label, as far as releasing music was concerned. seems like you just can't get away from that sort of thing...;)

Sarbear - 3-15-2010 at 04:59 AM

I dont think it was so much the releasing of the music, i think it was more the producing of the music that they had issues with. Like with Ima Robot how they would write a song (Friend of My Life, for example) And then the Label would be like this is good but change it to this: (Lover's in Captivity).

Delta - 3-15-2010 at 12:45 PM

we need a tracklist :thumbup:

imarob2 - 3-18-2010 at 05:03 AM

thaaat would be nice. and/or the album art, so we can listen to the demos and pretend that we have it:)

hmmmm. i'd like that.

Sarbear - 3-18-2010 at 12:58 PM


twinengine - 3-19-2010 at 09:00 AM

WOW! This is my first post here and I am excited to see what is next for Ima Robot. By far my favorite thing they have put out is Search and Destroy. I feel like Search and Destroy has the most appropriate raw production quality for their music.

Sarbear - 3-19-2010 at 11:02 AM

Search and Destroy is my favorite, but I think their music changes with them. Like most bands and people.

Delta - 3-19-2010 at 11:20 AM

btw, welcome to teh forums :thumbup:

Sarbear - 3-19-2010 at 04:14 PM


neckbeard - 3-19-2010 at 04:16 PM

and a third.....WELCOME

neckbeard - 3-22-2010 at 12:34 PM

i keep thinking and thinking about.....
it's going to be really good, but i'd like a sample to calm me down.
haha, maybe an album version of sail with me. that song is so good

Sarbear - 3-22-2010 at 01:01 PM

I want a new robot album to. but i keep finding myself going back to old pink monkey and jesus candles and wanting more of that sound.

Delta - 3-22-2010 at 02:35 PM


imarob2 - 3-23-2010 at 03:08 PM

i've been listening to the '04 to '06 demos most lately. i love their silly electro beats.

neckbeard - 3-23-2010 at 03:45 PM

lately i've been listening to
sail with me/older 98/99 demos..good stuff

mynameislou - 3-24-2010 at 05:58 PM

Hey y'all just dropping by because of
Ima's new tweets...I think featuring those photos from Flickr.
And the album cover. Well now. Go look at them photos on their twitter!

neckbeard - 3-24-2010 at 06:31 PM

HOLY CRAP. i'm getting super pumped.... seems like we've been waiting so long for a new Ima album.
i can't wait!

beedun - 3-24-2010 at 08:09 PM

Anyone have a track count? I hope its packed full, as in 80 minutes of sweet audio goodness.

imarob2 - 3-25-2010 at 05:20 AM

haha, really? those photos are such a tease!

there will be thirteen tracks on the disc that comes out first, not sure about the second one.

Delta - 3-25-2010 at 05:55 AM

how did you find that out?

imarob2 - 3-25-2010 at 07:49 AM

umm, i think that they said so a while ago?

also, i think that when timmy shared the intro track with us, the id tag said 'track 1 of 13'?

imarob2 - 3-25-2010 at 07:51 AM

i lied, it actually says 1 of 12

Delta - 3-25-2010 at 08:36 AM

i dont mind not getting a sample considering we prob know some of the songs, but I still would love to see a tracklist!

neckbeard - 3-25-2010 at 08:59 AM

yes, we need a tracklist. i'm dying here!
and i wonder if alex is helping pick out the album artwork stuff.

seeing as he is in australia right now.

MESinc. - 3-25-2010 at 09:17 PM

I had the exact same question.
Do you think that they were communicating with him through that iphone there???

Delta - 3-26-2010 at 05:57 AM

im pretty sure hes just playing dig dug

neckbeard - 3-26-2010 at 11:38 AM

stated on their facebook info:



not sure if anyone has seen that.
i never check their facebook, so this was the first time i saw it.

imarob2 - 3-26-2010 at 11:46 AM

yeah, i think that that's been on there for a couple months. it's officially spring now, so hurry it up, boys!

Delta - 3-26-2010 at 11:52 AM

pop it up online for digital dl then release the phsyical, lord knows ill buy them all

neckbeard - 3-26-2010 at 11:57 AM

they need to have a DOT NET release for the awesome members first :)
and THEN release it to the public!
let us have our well deserved listen first.

hahah, but that's just my very selfish opinion.

This made my day. Thanks Delta

Delta - 3-26-2010 at 12:13 PM

sounds good to me :thumbup:

MESinc. - 3-28-2010 at 07:25 PM

Man that's what I was thinkin' (hahaha but not actually dig dug), but I was hoping that there was an exciting possibility that they were all working together on it :(

Delta - 3-28-2010 at 07:31 PM

maybe co-op or vs dig dug?

neckbeard - 3-31-2010 at 10:39 PM

"One is done, artwork is close to being finished, we've been putting it together. That should be soon, I think Big question is release date. Either June or Sep. I'd prefer Sep.

The other one is in bits and pieces, but it sounds great so far. I think they'll finish that one this year, with the goal of it being out next spring."

"No there will be shows. Definitely an LA residency and some other things we've discussed. It's just that all three guys are busy, so it's hard to arrange and block time out for everything."

i need some more Ima!

Sarbear - 4-1-2010 at 04:12 AM

Sping, has now turned into a summer release. :( almost fall

Delta - 4-1-2010 at 05:56 AM

oy vey

neckbeard - 4-1-2010 at 07:20 AM

yeah, but still....they can keep moving the release date back.
but i'm just getting more excited hahaha

Sarbear - 4-1-2010 at 07:42 AM

They have been moving release dates back sense 2007

neckbeard - 4-1-2010 at 08:13 AM

hahahahha. true true.
but it will eventually come out sooner or later.
and if it doesn't, then it looks like the dot netters are stealing timmy's, alex's and filip's computers

poobs - 4-1-2010 at 09:45 AM

We'll be like that Burglar Bunch that robbed those "celebrities"! I just want shows..New albums would be great, but I just want to see them live again..It's been way toooooo long!

well at least you've been able to see them.
still have not seen them ONCE.

poobs - 4-1-2010 at 12:12 PM

You will soon enough..:thumbup: Are you going to the Eddy show in Solana Beach, perhaps? It's probably too far for you, huh?

yeah i was thinking about it.
but 1. it's sold out, a friend is seeing if she has an extra ticket.
but most importantly
2. it's 21 & over...i'm only 19 :(

MESinc. - 4-1-2010 at 09:05 PM

Going through this conversation is making me sad, I've never seen them either and summer seems like light years away :(

ich auch, I live in PA, hopefulyl when they do start touring they'll bumble fuck there way over here :thumbup:

Sarbear - 4-3-2010 at 04:00 AM

I would like a michigan date.

minimandy14 - 4-7-2010 at 03:30 PM

This is rediculous! I read a thread that said release in Feb and March and I was all excited then I went to the last post and it was lots of bitching about the release date being pushed back. I'm really getting tired of waiting. Also I vote for a show in the south! Particularly the Memphis area!!!!

MESinc. - 4-30-2010 at 12:57 AM

Should I be anticipating a release of the release date with excitement or with "NOW you know?!"

I am slightly excited, but also flustered with thoughts of another delay

Delta - 4-30-2010 at 06:57 AM

Tonight we put final touches on vinyl artwork. And sign our deal with @werewolfheart WHAT. Release date to follow FINALLYweKNOWsorryHAHA

I would hope so, vinyl will greatness

MESinc. - 4-30-2010 at 09:47 AM

"We have decided to make some moves!"

I say bring it on!
