// Coalesce tour, new release
As has been rumored, Coalesce will indeed be touring in August. Additionally, the group has also announced plans to release a new 7", titled "Salt and Passage," on September 11th. The current line-up of the band is: Jes Steineger, Nathan Richardson, Nathan Ellis, and Sean Ingram.
Regarding, their intentions, etc., the group comments: "Instead of looking at Coalesce as a second career or some ego-stroking project to prove something within modern music, it is being held closely and personally by the members as their time to put aside familial duties, work, school, or whatnot, and simply 'do it.' In short, we just want to hang out together again and play our shows out of a peculiar love for doing so (in all it's ugly purity)... Please let us make it very clear that this is not a 'reunion' tour in any way shape or form. Since it's simply the nature of coalesce to come and go as it pleases, terms like 'reunion' make no sense when applied to it."
