Thanks to all that came out last weekend for our Columbus and Chicago shows. Many apologies to everyone in Cleveland, as a delayed flight caused us to miss the show. We are done mixing the new single and the first person to land me a date with Katy Perry gets to release it. Songs on this one will be "Weird Sky" b/w "Suicide Circle."
We have a review of "wormwood star" in The Wire this month, and as a result we got a write up in the Pgh Post Gazette, which made for some interesting Christmas dinner conversation. We will be playing some shows at SXSW this year. Come hang.
Merry Christmas, Christian dogs.

What a shitty day to be a horse.

We returned home yesterday from our weekend of shows in nyc and philadelphia. We'd like to thank everyone that came out and watched us. Big thanks go out to Greg Daly for setting it all up, World Inferno Friendship Society for allowing us to completely impede on their personal space and Count Drugula for getting us there.

Our 7" ep is now out and was available at these shows. In the next day we will post info on the local release show for the record. If you would like to order this direct from the band, in the US- paypal $6 to, foreigners should get in touch for different shipping total. Only 300 were pressed so very few copies will be available for wholesale.

We are almost done mixing the two songs recorded with Matt Burndowns and will continue to argue as to who will release the 7".

Saturday, January 19, 2008

recording today

Today we are recording two songs with Matt from the Burndowns. The songs are "Wormwood Star" and "Freak out the Squares." One song is about shitting on republican graves and the other is about thinking yourself into a black hole. Our records arrived yesterday and we will have the covers done in time for the NYC show. We might do a release show in Pittsburgh.

upcoming shows:

January 26th Gooski's Pittsburgh
w/ Magic Wolf

February 1st Bowery Ballroom, NYC
