When the band isn't forcing all of us into rudimentary data analysis, they're busy touring Australia and subjecting good normal folk to Neo-Dad-Rock anthems. Thankfully, the Queensland Police department has had it up to here with the band and has warned the public of their arrival.

Personally I just hope we get some convenient spider rain during their show. Is that so much to ask?

And this isn't even the first time the Queensland Police have shown their distaste for the band:

Millions of baby spiders appeared to rain down from the sky earlier this month in the Southern Tablelands in Australia. One resident described the effect it had on their home as such: "The whole place was covered in these little black spiderlings and when I looked up at the sun it was like this tunnel of webs going up for a couple of hundred metres into the sky."

Read that again and try not to let your mind implode from the Lovecraftian horror from it all.

The phenomenon is (terrifyingly) not that uncommon. Apparently the spiders "balloon" by throwing out sheets of webbing and use the winds to carry themselves around. When weather conditions are poor, none of the spiders go anywhere of course. But when the weather picks up again, they all leave in one terrifying hell-swarm.

Again, a salute to the brave (insane?) people who continue to call the continent of Australia their home.
