Does It Offend You, March On...

As one of 2008's break out bands, the UK's Does It Offend You, Yeah? place the finishing touches on the follow up to their acclaimed debut, You Have No Idea What You Are Getting Yourself Into, the English electro outfit is going through some changes. Just announced yesterday, guitarist and hype man Morgan Quaintance has left the band to pursue his other band Plugs full time. Morgan was one of the essential elements to the bands live set, as witnessing the band last year at Lollapalooza, they stormed through an amazing performance with Morgan as one of the key pieces to the puzzle. Morgan tells NME.com that "Plugs is my band and Does it Offend You, Yeah? was never really my sort of band aesthetically. I didn't really have much choice, I just sort of had to go along with a lot of the stuff that was happening, whereas in it's like we write the music, we produce it, we do the artwork, we've directed our own video - it just like feels like a creative outlet for me more than Does It Offend You, Yeah."

Yet never fear fans of the band, the rest of the crew is marching on. The band plans to do many shows around the world with new members to replace Morgan and add to the atmosphere of the new direction of the band. The details on the latest Does It Offend You album is very quiet, but the band promises some great guest appearances and that it is finishing up strongly. As more details emerge, keep it locked here!
