The answer is that, no, JV is actually quite well.  In fact, he will be hitting the road (and CMJ) with The Extra Lens, who has a new album coming out on Merge.  The Extra Lens is John Darnielle of the Mountain Goats and Franklin Bruno of the Human Hearts. We get stoked brains every time JV and John Darnielle are mentioned in the same paragraph – this will be a great tour.
