Asia

We went to China last week! Woah.


We had a slamming time out there guys. Did a club show at Hidden Agenda live house in Hong Kong, and had an appearance at a music festival north of Guangzhou in Qianyang City. It was pretty steamy out there to say the very least. We were over for just one week, making it easily the most surreal experience our band has ever had. Not knowing that to expect and showing up in middle of nowhere China is... wow. We could talk for days about the experience but we figured a short film could explain it better. Please see the above clip. There are also some pics of the trip at the end of this post as well. Check em out. We made some new friends and plan on returning for a full Russian/Asian (China, Taiwan, Japan, Indonesia, Korea, etc.) tour next fall (2011). Count on it.

The rest of our summer involves the continued writing of our new album, and resting up for some more touring this fall. We don't expect the new album to be out anytime crazy soon as we want to take our time writing this one. Still though, we are following our impulses and writing music that we all dig, as always. We will see where the process takes us this time and are really excited about writing again finally after so much touring.

The US dates for September are shaping up nicely, even though it's a short 12 date run. We only go as far west as Chicago though so west coast fans, we're bummed to say we can't make it back out this fall. We will be back in some great cities though like Toronto, Montreal, New York, Indianapolis, Cleveland, etc. so keep an eye out. One more long European tour will get underway in November. Those dates are coming soon too and are in places we didn't visit last time like the UK, France, Italy, Switzerland, Luxembourg and other spots. It will be the last time we are in Europe for awhile (a place that has come to feel like a second home for us in the last 2 years) and we plan on bringing %100 to these shows like never before. Get psyched.

Enjoy the rest of your summer friends.
