We have been very busy this year, 2 tours, SXSW, and lots of other shows...so here is some updates thus far from where we left of last in March....with SXSW. Our trip was alot of fun.. we hit the road with our friends in Nanda Devi, Toad, and Ryan from Earsplitters, some of the Earsplitters staff had already flown out to Texas and were awaiting our arrivals. When we got to Austin we were given a very warm welcome and spent some time with our buddies in Empires, Beast In the Field, and Lost Coves as well as Mark from SAW HER GHOST, it was great finanlly meeting him and the rest of the SHG crew. cause they have been friends of ours for so long now.. it almost felt like we had already been close for years now, cause we have all know each other for so long, and have been working together.. just never met face to face. We also had the privilege of seeing the dudes from Battlefields, and ADAI. while hanging out with them at their show at Plush in downtown Austin, We ended the evening seeing Torche play at Beerland while some of us went over to see Rocky Erikson play, all in all it was a very crazy, but totally enjoyable trip and Austin was very good to us... special thanks goes out to Brian for keeping us all well inebriated and putting all of us up with a place to rest our heads all weekend, not that there was much sleep going on.

So, now back in Az, we have done a few local shows with some great bands/friends KERRETA, RED SPAROWES, CASPIAN, and we have a few more dates to add to the list before summer's end. so here is the low down...
First things first, we will be playing a few select dates this summer locally in Arizona, and a few in Ca, two of these dates will be with ROSETTA and CITY OF SHIPS as they make way out to the west coast. The dates w/ ROSETTA and a few others have been posted on our myspace, so go check them out and we hope to see you there! The plan after these few dates this summer will be to come back and start writing our next release.. I say "plan" because we have been planning on do it for a couple of months now but with all the shows and touring we haven't had any time to focus on new material, we have some songs in the works, but we would like to be able to focus more on them, and that is the plan for the end of summer and beginning of fall. We have already started the process of moving into a house in Phoenix w/ our friends in BODIES (emma's side project) where we will write and start to lay down some rough demos of the new material.
Another exciting bit of news is that we would like to welcome back guitarist Josh Griffith, to the family..(josh played on all of the tracks on NEW HEAVEN/NEW EARTH and had a big hand in writing them.) He has returned from his brief absence and we are excited to have him back. We would also like to take this moment thank our friend Joe Boning from Tintype for filling in for the last couple of months.
There is a lot more to talk about but, a lot of things are still being ironed-out all we can say now is there should be another release from us before end of the year and maybe even more.. we should have the details real soon, We know all of you have been asking... so please be patient with us, and as always thank you for all of your love and support.

crawling out of our sleeping bags the next morning to a banjo jam session in the living room of Dustin's house. After some more beer and food we were off to our last show of the tour in Santa Fe at the Santa Fe brewing Co. As we rolled up to the venue we were a little worried due to the fact that there were infants and children running around and well it looked more of like a family restaurant rather than a place to have a show..the promoter insured us we had nothing to worry about and feed us full of good pizza, and tons of beer to calm our nerves, and later on the crowd did become more of a "show-going crowd"and the show actually went amazing watching The Coma Recovery every night was mos def a plus as well. after the show the weather conditions were too ruff to drive home with a trailer so the people at the brewery gave us a full on tour and even more beer to take with us... once again this turned out to be an amazing night... we all said our goodbyes and posed for one more photo..then it was back it was back to burque to get some sleep and head out for home early next morning..

We had an amazing time, and would like to thank all of our new and current friends.. for making this happen, my dads, the coma recovery, and EVERYONE from the earsplitters co-op in cali. we love you and see you all soon!

last night was great in Pomona, thank you to everyone who came out and had kind words to say. today we are pulling into L.A. and are stoked to hang with old and new friends tonight will be our show at the Labcabin so be sure to make it out. Most defiantly colder than expected out here in cali.. On the stranger side of thing all of the hellas mounds and coma recovery camp visted a Scientology Museum down the street from Amoeba Records.. it was pretty creepy, infact a couple of us ducked out a bit early. other than that we are in good spirits and having a great time see you tonight!
