After 145 shows in sixteen countries, and over 60,000 miles of road, we are done touring for 2008. Thanks a ton to everyone who came out to shows all over the place, partied with us, facilitated partying for us, cooked for us, bought a record or cd or shirt, put us up for the night, worked on our equipment and anything else we're not mentioning. It means more to us than you might comprehend. Our livers totally fucking hate us and we can't hear anything anymore, but it was completely worth it. This week we will begin jamming new riffs and writing for a new album that will be out sometime in mid to late 2009 on Kemado.
Some other items of possible interest:
We are playing a Halloween party in Oakland on Friday and that will likely be it for the year as far as live performances go.
The "Cavern of Mind" video is forthcoming. The longer it takes, the more it will hurt your head.
We are trying get a webstore together via the good folk of Bad Skulls. Our aim is to have some killer, special things available in it. More on that later. For now, shirts are available through the Bad Skulls site.
A video game called MotorStorm: Pacific Rift for the PS3 will be released October 28 and "Cavern of Mind" is on the soundtrack. Apparently it is a car-racing game with monster trucks and shit. Fuckin' A.
From the New York Times, a playlist from this man Ryan Adams who is in a band called the Cardinals. They play arenas, yet I am unfamiliar. Anyhow, he appears to enjoy our record and said some interesting things actually. Random but cool. Thanks dude.
