Alrighty now (read it out loud like a leprechaun),
First, thanks to Joy for this pic. I wish Quito had poodle hair so I could make him look like this:
So okay. Here’s the scoop. The record is done, this you know. Just a couple knob turns up to 11 and we’ll have more info for you. We’ve decided on a title but we like to change our minds a lot so until the final version of the artwork is sent to the manufacturer and we have no other option we’re going to keep it bottled up inside. Trust me it’s not easy. And somehow we have enough songs tracked for almost two records so there will be B-sides galore. One day really REALLY soon we’ll announce the track listing, title and release date. I promise! I know I said that a week ago but it’s so close!
Until then… We’re coming up with some really neat ways to connect with you AND get you the new record. Yes, record meaning vinyl too! There’s also web re-design, marketing plans, photos and video OH stuff too. It’s a pretty busy time and we can’t wait to get you all involved. If you have any ideas feel free to speak up. Thanks for all the tour stop requests! We’ve been making a list and will check it thrice! RAAAAAHHHHH!
I’ve also been doing my best to catch up on messages and other random stuff for you freaks. Myspace messages are finally ALL caught up but email and postcards are a whole ‘nother monster… I’m working on it. Sadly, when I switched computers I lost a pretty huge chunk of email to the Mac gremlins and as a result lost some of your notes. So forgive me. I answer everything eventually but those may be lost forever… please don’t take it personally if you’re one of the unlucky few.
One of the other things I’ve been working on is bass TAB! This one is for Gregg in Minnesota! I guess I’ll do all the songs eventually but request what you want and I’ll prioritize accordingly. If you don’t know how to play bass yet get off your butt and play along. I’ll help you. Or you can harass Luis for guitar TAB or Chris for drum lessons. Either way if you have an inkling… DO IT. Nobody’s going to do it for you and then what? HUh? Yeah. That’s what I thought.
If you ever have questions about songs please ask away. It’s the most important part right? Why doesn’t anyone ever ask about the songs?
And I’m going to Florida next week. If you want pics check my Twitter updates! I’m teaching Quito to swim.

I’m going olde skool because the Myspace link thing stinks like bigfoot’s jockstrap.
