One more final... FOREVER
Got a package of our limited release clear pink 7 inches today from Black and Greene.
Buy them at our free show tomorrow with Maps and Atlases at Reggies or at Ottoman Empire with Exercise before we leave for tour. That shiiit is going to sellout QUICK!
Also: I think it is safe to say that I will begin recording the full length for Emergency Umbrella as soon as I return from the mini tour on May 31st in Minnesota. Sarah's family is kind of enough to let me record in their empty house (free from distractions) that has been on the market for months due to the economy BS. They are the best!
Uhhh... I think that is all.

This is Paul Newmann
I am going to go as far as saying he is the BEST and most creative drummer I have ever played with in my life.
He will not be touring with us at the moment (one day he will) and I am having a TERRIBLE time finding a replacement. Spread the word that we are looking for a touring drummer for July and August (both only 2 week tours). This replacement will be payed a modest amount per show and should be everything Paul is and more.
July 21st is the official release date of our first 6 song EP Calling You Out being released by Emergency Umbrella
ALSO: Yesterday we recorded a Daytrotter session, which was surreal and everything I could ever want it to be. Expect the session to be posted this summer.
Love you guys! Maybe leave a comment or something... so I don't feel like I'm just typing to myself.
