BLOG: May Update

Vinyl + New Music at last…

We’re excited about SHAPES AND VARIATIONS finally being available to buy WORLDWIDE, digitally on iTunes and everywhere else on the web  via Overhead Records and The Orchard, but we’re already working on the next project!!!!

We’re back in the studio demoing songs for our next album, which we plan on recording in August. We’ve been writing feverishly and will be debuting a new track at each show we play until we get in to the studio to record everything properly. The demos are coming out great, so we can hardly contain our excitement. The material is progressive but passionate, and we hope you’ll love it as much as we do! We’re definitely heading in new and exciting directions!

While we’re working on new material for you, we’ll be releasing our first 12″ vinyl this summer!!!! The album is called CURRENT and features our favorite selections from our first two albums… you could call it a sort of “best of” release. The album will be available through our STORE, and and at limited west coast retailers. The records will be made of randomly colored 150 gram deluxe vinyl… so no two will be alike! Each album will be hand numbered and will include a free download of both of our records, 14 tracks in all! We’ve also got a swanky album release party in the works, so keep checking in with us for all of the details!

Also due out sometime this summer (we think, but we might be wrong), will be a track for an iTunes “Exclusive” album of Tears for Fears covers, that we just finished. The album features ROBOTANISTS as well as The Bird and the Bee and a few more great bands! Each artist was hand picked and commissioned to perform by Curt Smith of Tears For Fears and Apple, and all proceeds will benefit Alzheimer’s research, a cause close to the band’s heart. We covered “Ideas as Opiates” from the album The Hurting, and the album is tentatively slated for release through iTunes in the Summer of 2010. Stay tuned for a lot more details about the release very soon!

Don’t forget… our albums, CLOSE DOWN THE WOODS + SHAPES AND VARIATIONS, are both finally available to buy in store at AMOEBA RECORDS in Hollywood! So go get em!

And finally, IN TOUR NEWS… you can see us on stage twice this month:
