- We've conquered Europe with our partners in crime Black Cobra and Weedeater. The tour was insane, the shows were great, we played a bunch of festivals and cool new places we hadn't been before, we got weird and it kicked ass. Many thanks to our fearless driver Brozak, Black Cobra, Weedeater, Avocado for booking the shit, Dominic and Division for doing press stuff and most importantly all the euromaniacs who came out a raged every night with us. It was simultaneously real and unreal, if that makes any sense.
- At the end of the tour we headed to Den Haag, Holland for a quick studio trip with Guy Tavares, who does the awesome Motorwolf label. Guy and engineer Hans tracked two new songs for us the old way- 16 track, 1" tape, no punch-ins, edits or automation. We recorded one new song and then a 21 minute "alternate" version of it, which will be mixed to full heavy psychedelic fruition by Guy over the next month and eventually included on an upcoming EP.
- Our only full US tour this year is rapidly approaching. Ozzfest should be insane and debaucherous and we're super excited for it, whatever it may entail! We've announced some pre-fest dates and some off-dates from the tour as well and we will be headlining a few select US cities on the way back from the east coast after Ozzfest. A few more dates will be announced soon.
