Lets just say, I don't see this happening. That's all I shall say.

Please do say more.  I'm already too pumped and excited for it.  Almost excited enough to bring back the Clubhouse.

Right, with all your inside information. Based on everything we've read and comments from all those involved, it's safe to assume that unless they kill each other in December while recording there will be some tour dates. The desire is there, but these guys aren't dumb - they want it to be fun. So let's just send 'em some positive vibes and hope everybody has a blast recording this winter.

I think the doubt comes from Darren being a bit apprehensive when someone asked him about it after a Hotel Lights show...
"Wait, he said 'good things come to those who wait,' but you didn't wait too long" "Keep listening" Kristen, on me and "Bruised"

I'm sure Darren would rather be doing Hotel Lights gigs.



That being said. He's not doing that many. Hasn't over the last few years (the midwest is dyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyying) and I think he could very much use the exposure a Ben Folds Five full on reunion would bring.
