We’re glad to report that we’ve completed the basics and overdubs on our new LP and the project is now in the mixing stages.
We recorded the whole thing in-studio with Ayad Al-Adhamy (Team Spirit, Passion Pit, Black Bell Records) at his studio Little Room NYC up in Greenpoint and the project is fantastic. Its a very different record than our previous endeavors, but in a good way. For example, I rip a slide solo with a PuffCo vaporizer pen. Not sure if it was Berg’s or Ayad’s…but it was the one on the chair…I digress.
This is a very large record. Its long. It has a bit of story to it, and it’s pretty out there stuff. If you want, we’ve uploaded some pre-prod tracks (done acoustically with sonic wizard John Siket) to our SoundCloud. We’ll just embed em right down here…and…there we are!
Because of the project’s size and us being an independent band and all, we could use your help funding it.
We’ve already raised over $3000 (which is amazing) but we need to clear about $10K to press it to vinyl, prep for summer tour (*spoilers*) and deliver it to you in the method which would be best for this piece of art we made/are making…so if you could, please donate today.
Once we get some mixdowns we’re ok with sharing, we’ll upload those too.
Love ya \m/

Very excited to announce we’ll be performing at the first ever Ignition Festival this year in New Orleans, LA.
The festival is curated by Mardi Gras’ infamous Krewe Of Chewbacchus and will be centered around sci-fi, themed as “Chewburnitall” (meaning there’s a giant wicker Chewbacca they plan to light on fire). For a band who tours with the original trilogy on VHS as a good luck totem and have multiple Doctor Who and Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy tattoos, it goes without saying that we’re excited to be a part of this unique event.
Ignition Festival runs from October 14th – October 17th and tickets are available here (tier one tickets are already sold out).
