So, since, as the good Rev. explained yesterday, we finally got with the times and hopped onto Bandcamp and DELETED OUR MYSPACE (god, that felt good), a site overhaul was in order. And with that i suppose should come an update to let ya know what we've been up to.
Ya see how that banner up top says "New EP and seven inch coming Spring 2011?" Totally true, yo. The long-awaited (by us) Nada Surf EP is about to be mastered by our old mate Justin Perkins, along with four other songs that will constitute the "Arson, You Let me Down" seven inch, backed with "Somebody Take the Damn Money" and "Permanent Sleperhold." The fourth song will be a bonus download that you get ONLY by buying the damn record, which we plan to press as soon as we get those tracks back. As for Nada Surf (hi Google!), Latest Flame Records is targeting that for a May or June release. Knock on wood.
In other news, we just partnered with Yale's other band, Death Dream, and bought a new van that we'll be using to wander the Midwest and hopefully the East Coast this Spring and Summer. Keep your eyes peeled.
Aaaaaand did i just say that Yale has a new band? Well, not "new," really, since they've been together for about a year now, but yeah, dude's been killing it in Death Dream when he's not making noise with us. You owe it to yourself to check 'em out; fans of us and similarly noisy, dark post-punk will love 'em. He's not the only one playing double-duty either; MrAlarm and i have joined Madison band Zebras as noisemaker and drummer, respectively, and Rev.Ever has been scoring films with his experimental noise combo The Fucking Teeth. He's even got a new band emerging from an undisclosed location in Milwaukee any time now! So...yeah. We keep busy.
That's all i got. Buy our shit.
