It’s been a little while: time for an update.
We’re home safely from a beautiful trip to and from Australia and New Zealand. I think it’s safe to say we had the time of our lives. One more thank you to all the fine folks who helped make the tour such a pleasant experience. We’re surely going to miss all our lovely Australian mates.
Now it’s time for a break from touring for a bit. Besides fighting off snow drifts and winter depression, we’ll be writing the other half of the next record, followed by a second and final recording session in April. Ah yes, the real work begins.
To answer a few questions we’ve been receiving about 2011:
– yes, we will be touring the states. (soon, and with lots of friends.)
– yes, we’re coming back to Europe/UK. (with some different friends.)
– yes, the split with Koji is finished and will be released in the near future. (he’s a very talented and handsome friend.)
– yes, the new album will be out this year. (with a little help from our friends.)
More updates on all of the above and more soon.
Until then, be good. Oh! and get stoked for Defeater’s new record. It is going to destroy you.

hope everyone is having a great week. mine is going very well thanks to my friends and this beautiful december snow. it’s funny how I was dreading winter so badly until I saw the fresh snow this morning. amazing!
we’ve been keeping pretty busy lately writing tunes, trying new ideas, and figuring out our game plan for 2010. all of us are very excited to put some new music out and also get back on the road. so here goes:
regarding the road:
after the holiday season we’ll be venturing through the wonderful midwest weather with our best friends in the world Native. (If you haven’t checked out their new disc yet, do it.)
here’s the confirmed dates thus far. more will pop up in the next few days. you can also check the tour tab on the top of this site or our myspace for updates on the tour. I’ll be sure to put the final draft up here as well. but for now:

please check out the dates and help spread the word. we’re really excited to see all of you again, it’s been a minute.
now, regarding tunes:
as I mentioned, we’ve been jamming a lot and having way too much fun with it. we also recently bought some gear and are trying to put together a studio of sorts (something a few of us have wanted to do for some time now).
that being said, we all know the holidays are coming. we’d like to give you all a gift. yup. I just got done talking about music. it’s probably music. maybe new. maybe old. maybe both. we’ll see.
we’d also like to offer everyone the opportunity to give during this time of year. many folks get overlooked and shrugged off with all the distractions of holiday festivities.
more on this very soon. how soon? like next week soon. stay tuned.
love you all, be good to one another,
