We hope this incredibly hot summer is treating you all well. We’ve been packing, cleaning, moving, unpacking and wondering where we got all this stuff from for about a month now. The good news is that the end is in sight!
At least on the moving part…
So, what have we have coming up? Well, let us tell you!
First off, Michael Helfenstein, who appeared on our album and played with The Grizzly Band for many years, is joining us as a full-time member! We’re pretty excited about expanding to a three-piece and adding another dimension to our sound. Practices have been going well once we stop chatting and we’ll be kicking this new phase of the band off at our August 4th show.
Speaking of August 4th, we’ll be playing with Jon Snodgrass (Drag the River/Armchair Martian/Scorpios), Grifters & Shills and Hobomouth at Dan Electro’s on that date! This is going to be a great show! Snodgrass is one of our favorite musical folks so we’re stoked to be playing the show with him!
Now, let’s talk about what is surrounding that date! We’ll be heading to San Antonio and Austin this weekend for shows with The March Divide, then in the middle of August, we’ll be doing shows in Galveston and Baytown with The March Divide. It’s like a little split tour kinda thing. For info on these shows, check out the tour dates section or hit the ‘events’ tab on Facebook.
The fall will be slow, but we’re going to be having some fun along the way including a 3-day tour with Randall Conrad Olinger and Clancy Jones. Mostly though, we’re going to be writing, working on tightening up the expanded lineup and possibly starting some recording.
Be safe out there, friends!
