Turning the Tables

photoPROOFS : GO ROYALS – Greetings Earthlings (or Terran if you prefer). looks like there actually will be a vinyl version of LOST BEES after all. i had given up hope of ever laying hands on a copy but it’s gonna happen. apparently starting GO ROYALS a vinyl factory is the biz to be in by the back log they’ve got stacked up. i chose the wrong side of the biz. me thinks. GO ROYALS

T H E L I F E A N D T I M E S : L O S T B E E S :

dang yallz. really can’t believe it’s all happening. seems like we’ve been moving in slow motion getting this beautiful monster ready for consumption for the past 6 months, more like 2 years but who’s counting. paul malinowski mixed the shit out of 7 of the ten tunes. eric and i finished up the other 3. similar to the last few times. since boogie at least. we feel like it’s something super spesh. hope you do to.

please check the dates and if you’re interested in joining the bill in your home town you guys should first check with the local promoter. their contact info will be listed on their website. we carry less say in the deal in out of town shows. good luxxx and if you’re not on show, get in the front row and bang your skull and flash some horns. see you soon!

BEGIN THE BEGIN

Gather round children. our last record No One Loves You Like I Do was released over two years ago. hard to believe but not really, considering the fact that things that i think happened a couple years ago actually happened like eight fucking years ago in reality. ah life. short years and long days. sniff.

anyway, the finishing of our new record tentatively but most likely entitled Lost Bees  is upon us and will ultimately be released AUGUST 12 2014, again on Slimstyle Records. gonna rock this showcase this Wednesday May 14 at The Empty Bottle with my boys from DC Deleted Scenes and local killers The Kickback. super excited to throw down.

we three wise men will then drive to Kansas City to begin mixing Lost Bees with Paul “Tuffcakes” Malinowski at Massive Sound for about a week from MAY 15-21. i do believe this to be what will be knowns as our ZOSO, our Dark Side of the Moon, our Rumors, our Damn the Torpedos, our Nation of Millions…

US Tour begins AUGUST 7th 2014 going west first, then east, then south, rinse and repeat. dates to be announced very very very soon.

see you at the Bottle. TIX HERE

love you real hard. ae
