      70000 tons of sadness.

      Considering that where we are Statsie, I reckon, by 5pm/6pm Oz time, it'll be midnight in Vancouver time, that ticks over to 100 days officially. Am I right?
      After such a boring AFL Grand Final yesterday, I was super keen for some exciting distractions. I was convinced last night going to bed for sure, tomorrow morning, we'll have news!
      Far out.

      I know prior years they've tried to say they "build anticipation" or something with the announcement delays, but I honestly have just reached a point that I'm not even excited or hopeful. I'm just bummed out...

        Anyone ever get a schwag bag in their cabin? I thought those were promised or hinted at at one point but can't recall ever getting one myself
        So far at least, 2011, 2012 & 2015 were enough for me

        No - trying to find reference to that. I bitched about it for so long I gave up bitching about it.

        (Keep in mind that Statsman lives in Australia, which lives in the future by one day, hence the discrepancies in some of those dates)

        Let’s look at the YouTube presence of 70000Tons (https://www.youtube.com/70000tons) so far:
        - March 27: pre-cruise recap
        - Apr 3: Day 1 recap
        - Apr 10: Day 2 recap
        - Apr 17: Day 3 recap
        - May 3: 30s promo
        - Sep 20: 5mn23s promo, BUT NOT ON YOUTUBE

        I have to say, to whoever thought it would be a good idea to post a 30s promo in May instead of the Day 4 recap, then decided NOT to post your most expensive and best promo video on YouTube in September: you are my hero.

        In the unlikely event that there is a cruise next year, please don’t post videos on YouTube again, you’re not good at it.

        My personal opinion: it's just harder and harder to find big/good names willing to come on the boat, and they are unable to assemble their line-up for 2020. Just remember last year, Napalm Death joined at the very last minute and they were asked just a few days before the cruise (Barney even joked about it on stage); so, UMC were still looking after decent sized bands at the 11th hour, and they didn't have a complete line-up just days before leaving. And, to be honest, last year's lineup was already really weak in my opinion.

        The above post may be a complete pile of shit, I can be completely wrong. We'll never know, unless someone from UMC shows some basic respect for their customers, and tell people WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON - just saying.

        It's so much closer to xmas/new years too which surely will reduce the number of bands willing to go. Christmas obligations and family stuff and such.

        Plus, its so much more (like $500+ per person. At least!) to get to Miami from Australia because its a peak holiday time, I would imagine its similar for other parts of the world too. So that would add to the logistics issues with bands and crew members surely, especially if smaller bands have to pay their own way to get there and just get the cruise itself free and a bit of a bar tab as 'payment'.

        I have zero complains regarding boat lineup for the past three years, all have been magnificent imo. That being said, I was expecting something better than this radio silence crap for Round X. My mind cannot comprehend the reason behind all this delay in band announcements

        This is a very real possibility, especially with cruise dates near the holiday. Every band I've talked to on the boat (which, admittedly, isn't a ton) have said that the best case scenario for 70K is that they break even. Most of them talked about how much money they and/or their label lost by being on board.

        It's entirely possible that Andy's gotten a ton of "nopes" and is simply scrambling to find anyone who can fill the void.

        This is a very real possibility, especially with cruise dates near the holiday. Every band I've talked to on the boat (which, admittedly, isn't a ton) have said that the best case scenario for 70K is that they break even. Most of them talked about how much money they and/or their label lost by being on board.

        It's entirely possible that Andy's gotten a ton of "nopes" and is simply scrambling to find anyone who can fill the void.
        Well, i tend to disagree about this being the real reason for absence of announcements. Even if Andy is struggling to shape the lineup, i am quite sure he has at least 10-15 bands he can start to announce, then fill the rest in-between SOONs.

        The same video is on Facebook just it was posted on September 20th. UGGGH!!
        I didn’t even see that post ,which reminds me 70k isn’t boosting their posts on Facebook (they have to pay for that) ,they never show up in my feed anymore.So I guess this YouTube thing was just another way to buy a couple of days without any real news.

        No ads in print magazines like Metal Hammer.

        There always were ads in the second half of the year (at least here in Germany).

        Slightly less noticed thing: The video they have embedded on the landing page (www.70000tons.com) is still the 2018 aftermovie, they haven't updated it to the 2019 one yet even though that video has been made/published for 10 days.

        I'm absolutely convinced that if they are not announcing tomorrow (the 10th cruise, 10th month gimmick), that 70000 Tons of Metal is DEAD!

        It seems they are active here and checking in on the posts at least.At this point the ship itself has to be locked in and paid for (or at least a line of credit for about $2,000,000).So here is my theory,they wanted to weed out families and some of the less dedicated veterans to be replaced by newer people.70k of kids and wives don’t spend the amount of money on beer and merch as 70k of Metalheads.Think of it as “The Replacement Cruiser Theory “ ,it had to happen eventually because if younger people never got on the ship the cruise would just become 70k of Retirement Home :headbanger: ,or as cruising as known as “The Newlywed and Nearly Dead”

        It will weed out a lot of international cruisers to, due to the limited time to get organised, the increased cost in flights, and declining exchange rates against the US. Even if the internationals can make it, the increased costs would mean that they would have less disposable income to spend on the abovementioned beer and merch.

        Leading to....
