Happy New Year. After spending 145+ days on the road last year, we are trying to get in some rest now that we are back home while also getting back up to speed with our day jobs and the hustle and bustle of everyday life. It's always a strange beast to return to and already it feels as strange as ever. Keep us in your thoughts as we return to the world of bill paying, car driving, song writing and such this year. Time to get back in touch with "home".
This year we are, not surprisingly, taking some time away from the long gang busting tours. This does not mean we will not be playing shows though. Quite the contrary! We are excited to announce that once again we will be performing at this year's SXSW festival in Austin, TX. We will be doing a short 2 week tour down to it that takes us through the south and then into Texas. We are happy to announce this will be with Native from Indiana. Great band - this tour will rule. Dates should be up around mod-January for this.
In April, we will be back in Europe for 5 shows only. On April 21, we are at Friction Festival in Berlin. On the 23rd, we are at Dunk Festival in Belgium. And in between/before/after these appearances we will be playing select shows in Moscow (RU), London (UK) and Leipzig (DE). More information to come.
Most of 2011 will be spent writing and recording our 4th album. We have a couple songs completed but are looking to write 10-12 more. We are excited about consolidating all of our collective energy around this project and trying to do our best work yet. We will see what happens and keep you posted as always.
Have a wonderful year everyone, and please stay in touch and be well.
