We do a lousy job of posting news on our website even though we keep things up to date on here. Truth is, there are far more interesting things than what we have going on--such as Donald Trump. That said, we're playing with Toys That Kill, Meat Wave and Sincere Engineer tomorrow night in Chicago. After that, we won't be playing again until fall because we're working on a new record. We're planning to put new, sweet licks on tape come late September and hopefully release it early next year.
Other than that, be sure to vote in November and then, no matter who wins, come drink your sorrows away at Ian's Party 2017.
Today is the official release date for our new record, Life is a Breeze! The digital version was released last Tuesday and today the CD version will be available. LP is still pre-order but it should be available by our record release show on December 20th in Elgin. The CD is available to order directly from us as of this morning and we'll make the LP available as soon as we have our hands on some.
Last week Punknews announced the release of our first video from Life is a Breeze for the song "Cash for Gold". Check it out: http://youtu.be/PqxkgQL6j84. It is also available in our Videos page.
We have two shows coming up that are already posted in our Shows calendar and we have a weekend in the works with Meatwave which includes shows in Chicago, Madison and Minneapolis.
So I think the last time we posted any news was in 2012. Either way, a lot can happen in a short amount of time and we just added a new t-shirt to our merch/store so check it out. Right now we only have M, L and XL but we'll have XXL and S soon hopefully. In addition, we have a new record coming out this fall/winter. The music is done, we're just putting some finishing touches on the other aspects of putting out a new record. Our friend Matt Semke designed the cover of this record and he is the one who designed the cover for New Brains. We're very excited about the record and we'll post more news as it gets closer to being released. Party on!
Our new record, Life is a breeze, is done and will be released to digital retailers on December 2, 2014 and released on CD and LP on December 9, 2014.
