New Album

Well the new one is off to mastering. It will be released at the end of summer here in North America by our new label Arena Rock Records and by our old friends Decor Records in UK/Europe. Around the same time downloads will be available here and on cdbaby  itunes etc..

Happy Holidays!

Seasons Greetings from the Pacific Northwest.

It’s raining here, but that doesn’t matter much as we are in the basement fine tuning the songs for the new album. We are hitting the studio in January with the help of our brothers JD Foster and Larry Crane. The songs are shaping up nicely and after JD works his magic they should be fit for human ears. We will release it sometime in ’09. Check back here for secret preview downloads.

We haven’t played live for a few months (sorry) due to work on the new one, but the drought ends at Dante’s Feb 25. Our friends Two Cow Garage are making the trip from Ohio to bring us out of hibernation.
