12"es are 1/2 gone! Official release is Friday. Montreal release show in April!
Thanks to everyone who pre-ordered our new Sunglasses 12" EP. Between all the people, record stores, distros who picked it up we have only 275 copies remaining from the original press of 600. This is great because the official release isn't even til Friday. We are always working on a special release show in MTL for April 16th which we have a few reserved copies saved for.
We actually just got our personal copies a few minutes ago, and most people who pre-ordered should be getting them soon.
We had another bloody one last week and released our split single 7" with Black Feelings. Not exactly sure how it can be purchased online yet or if it is in any stores. We'll have a few kicking around.
In other news, we are going on tour! Weirdcanada.com is doing a traveling WYRD fest (pronounced Weird fest) so we are headed out to Calgary, Edmonton and Lethbridge at the start of May. We will play some shows a long the way. Super excited because Cosmetics are playing all the shows. If you haven't picked up their new 7inch on Captured Tracks. Do it. We have been talking about touring with them before either of our bands had ever played a single gig so this is really cool.
We have some videos and things that will pop up in the next few weeks. And also a new bandcamp page. Hopefully band camp de-thrones myspace. It is the same thing but without ads. The Peelies convinced us of it's worth. They are usually a step ahead. That's why we have a blogspot and they have a tumblr. This is possibly the lamest thing I have ever typed.
Uh, what else... we are remixing a Homosexual Cops song and it sounds exactly like New Order. Probably our finest work. I have had nothing to do with it so far. But I like the results.
