Thanks for everyone who came out to and took part in the Aural States Fest the other night. There was a lot of really good music happening, and it was nice to see so many people enjoying it.
So it turns out we won't be going to Europe as soon as we'd hoped. The financial aspects of the trip were looking pretty bleak on our end, so we decided we'd best wait a couple months and hope for more and better offers. I know some people in Europe and the UK have really been looking forward to our coming over there this spring, but it's looking like it'll now be re-scheduled for June.
So seeing as we had this hole in our schedule, we thought it would be a good idea to do a quick trip to Florida and back, in early April. Should be fun, and the band hasn't played there since 2005.
That stuff I wrote in the last post about doing 2 weeks of shows in May in our country's eastern half still stands...right now it's looking like it'll be starting in the Northeast and moving south and west from there.
Also, we've got some new confirmations regionally. On March 2nd, we're playing in Philly at Kung Fu Necktie with James Blackshaw and Meg Baird, the night before our Baltimore show as part of the same bill. That Friday, March 6th we'll be in Brooklyn at Union Pool with Pissed Jeans and Bogan Dust.
These March shows will be the first ones where we'll be selling our new record, Song of the Pearl. The record comes out March 10th, so those at the shows will get a crack at buying it before just about anyone else.
We should have more updates soon, as things are happening quickly in our sphere these days. Keep checking back.
