Hey, we just had a great rehearsal. We all traveled and flew in for two days to learn new songs for the upcoming record The Fall Of The House Of Even. We laughed alot, slept very little and now my ears are ringing and my nose is running. We are intensely excited about the new material, you can see sparks flying from Gub's head and Bice destroyed a cymbol (poor cymbol). The record has an insane amount of influences but seems to flow smoothly as well. We have allowed these inspirations to flow over us: Tom Waits, Violent Femmes, Screeching Weasel, The Clash, Tool, Benny Goodman, The Ramones, and yes even Nick Drake. We hope you all will like it. We do. We hope to have it out sometime before November 2006. Possibly much sooner.
We are talking with Insubordination right now about releasing it, but all is up in the air at this time. It WILL live!!
By the way the tour was made so much more enjoyable by the great hats that we were given by www.TheFedoraStore.com Please check them out and support the wearing of classy hats.
