God damn, where do we start? It’s been a whirlwind. The European tour was hot sexy mess of a good time. We were incredibly well received. So much so that we signed contracts to head back twice a year!
Hey Mikey, I think they likes it.
Thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who came out and supported us out there. It was surreal to be reunited with old friends and to see some of you who even came all the way from The States to check out a show. Wow! Cheers to all the new friends we made along the way, you treated us with the most exceptional hospitality and for that, we are most grateful.
A huge thanks also goes out to friends over at TJ Concerts who put the whole damn beast together. To our sweet tour Mama, Jas Josland who kept our asses in line and made sure at the end of each show to tell us to shake ‘em more, we love you. Our Luck Dragon, Van Diesel, thanks for not killing us.
Next you say? We’re glad you asked. Ok, as many of ya’ll know, the last album was FOREVER AGO (some say it’s been a dog’s age)! So much has changed since then! About 25 songs have been written, played, toured, evolved and shelved (for now). Fret not my dears, they will be recorded, just not quite yet.
After much deliberation we’ve decided to write an entirely new album from scratch (13 songs!) and record it this year to be released by the beginning of next. We cannot express with words of this world how excited we are to share these sounds with you. If the last album was your child’s drawing from class that you hung on the fridge and said, “awww”, then this is the one where you’re frantically shuttling your kid around to specialists trying to find out what dimension they slipped out of and who the hell the real parents are!
We’ll be launching a GoFundMe to raise the money we need to record this monstrosity. There’s going to be a significantly higher production value on this album with a few BIG surprises. We’ve got a couple studios in mind but haven’t decided on which one in particular as of yet, however they all have similar rates so we’ve got a good idea of what cost is looking like.
Keep a keen eye out for a sneak peak into what we’re cooking up in the Bluff Lab and a chance to contribute to what we feel is shaping up to be truly a special piece of work.
Sincerely we want to thank you all for your continued support. We can’t put these songs into the world without you. It’s hard to dedicate everything you have to music, but when you’ve recognized that it’s the most important thing you can do with your life, then you have to stop at nothing to make sure it gets out there. Countless hurdles lie between getting what you hear in your head to being cut onto a piece of vinyl. But once you’re drop the needle, kick back and crack open your mind, then you know it was worth it. Thank you for also recognizing that.
