Thank You, East Coast Friends! New Merch, West Coast Friends!
Our brief tour of the Northeast was a grand time. Serious thanks are due to the Ryans, Phils, Kimberlys, Gregs, Jameses, Alecs, Chrises, and Michaels of the world (not to mention a middle finger to all hotels in the general Southern Vermont/Northern Connecticut region).
It really is a special thing to be able to come play shows where we’ve never before been and have the friendly reception that we were able to enjoy. We appreciate all the kind words and support, and as we mentioned a number of times throughout the weekend we will do our best to return in a timely fashion for further Sunday brunches:
We brought back a few new shirts and hoodies with us, and our hairy-guitarist/label-master/budding photographic whiz-kid (but don’t take my word for it, check out that merch page!) Justin has just received another press of Messy LPs. These do not come with the CD, as the last run did, which will allow you to commit your hard-earned two bucks on other worthless bits of plastic.
Up next: San Diego and Los Angeles, us and Graf Orlock will be in you on December 17th and 18th. Gilman, San Francisco, and Santa Cruz will be played on January 20th, 21st, and 22nd respectively with our friends Beau Navire, among others. Also in the works is a brief trip to Japan, roughly scheduled for the end of March. Sprinkle that with a pinch of song-writing and factor into all of the above our general work-to-laziness multiplier (not to mention, an ample dosing of mixed metaphor) and we may even have a release before the customary 4 year wait. Also, in response to the new boom of hardcore videography (we’re nothing if not cutting edge) we’re deep into contract negotiations with the reknowned filmmaker Wilbur Smith, who should be shooting us over the next few months for a project that will be tentatively released in Spring.
“Seize the Second” or some other banal encouragement (zing!),
