So now we're busy all of the sudden.
The days tick by when this record of ours comes out and we're sure scurrying around getting it all together. Here's what's up:
Some outside folks have taken an interest in us. [Decibel Magazine] wrote a very flattering review. [Brooklyn Vegan], [Noisecreep] and the [Village Voice] are chatting us up. (Note that BV has Song 26 off the new record for download. We'll put it up soon. And Justin continues to write stuff for the [Metal Sucks] site. Oh, and we did another promo video which we've embedded over there to the right.
Got a weekend of shows coming up right before the record comes out with [Disappearer] and [Phantom Glue] . Those are on the show page and will be a hoot. We will be well practiced and firing on all cylinders when we finally get back to NYC. And, finally, Hydra Head has a shirt available for us that is pretty much entirely amazing. [Andrew Cox] did it and you can see it over there to the right. Wow.
It's all humming along. Another contest coming, the vinyl test pressings show up in a few days, Data DVD-Rs are being printed ... a year and a half from now when we're deep in writer's block hell and all attention has moved on elsewhere, we should remind ourselves to look back and read this. Because we're having a good time. And we still really, really like this new little record, despite having heard it a bunch of times.
Justin's listening to that Funeral Mist record from last year as he types this. Fuck, that band is awesome.
