As promised, here’s a little preview of what we’ve been working on.
Happy Fourth of July, y’all.
we just finished up a bit set of June shows, and we’re switching gears to get back into writing mode. It’s taking longer than expected, but we’re pushing on towards a full length.
thank you for your continued support.
First two writing sessions are off to a great start. We have two new song starts and we’re getting pretty ambitious about what we can get done in a few short months… maybe even a full length.
We’re also most likely joining Daniel G Harmann on his Portland stop this April at Rotture. Most likely this will be our first live set outside the writing cave.
It’s been a crazy autumn – new drummer, new EP, LOTS of shows, lots of new friends…
Now it’s time to hibernate. We’re taking a bit of a break from live shows to work on some new music, re-organize some gear choices, and stretch ourselves (3-part harmonies? glockenspiels? percussion? more pedals?). Hopefully by the end of our winter hibernation we’ll have a full-length or a new EP ready to record and play live.
We have a full recording setup in the practice space, so we’ll try to sneak out some samples.
We had our good friend Brett from Neighbors record our set at Ash St last week. We’ll be putting up more videos as soon as they get uploaded. Here’s a start:
If you have any money left during this recession, take it to a local credit union. Don’t trust the Wall St. idiots with it.
four new shows confirmed for November, and one pending. We’re probably going to keep this pace up through Dec, and try to visit some friends in Eugene and Seattle, and maybe get into some new areas around the NW.
If you want to see us in your town/venue, let us know. We don’t turn shows down.
our new EP, V2, will be out soon (mixing and mastering is finally done). As soon as we can finish up the artwork, we’ll have physical copies. In the mean time, here are the digital versions for your aural pleasure:
the Deathtrap America CD release was a great way to hit the ground running with Chris. Tight set, good adjustment to flying drumsticks, falling drums, and loose guitar cables. And even thought the blasted tow truck vultures tried to ruin our food truck run at 1am, the night was still a huge success.
As far as the rest of the year, we should be done mixing/mastering on the new EP (which still needs a name and artwork), and writing some new music. There are two more confirmed shows (one with our good friends AM Exchange) and one pending with Children of Nova that we’re REALLY excited about.
Things are back on track. Maybe that can inspire some more music.
