Failure at Marquee Theatre, 6/13/14

1 of 26
In the throes of a guitar solo, Ken Andrews smacks his fist against his guitar, raises it over his head and shoves its neck into the Sunn Model 15 FRFR speaker behind him. He turns to face the audience, "Sergeant Politeness, caress my ego!" Like it or not, Failure's back — and not in the sad, reunion-tour way that some bands (Blink-182, A Tribe Called Quest, for instance) return to the stage — they'e back like they never left
