Regime Change

At the end of the day all you can honestly do is try.
We last spoke in January. Perhaps. That being said, specifics are irrelevent, its been awhile.
We've seen quite a bit of the world since. Europe and United States mostly...or...exclusively but what a wonderful experience again. For this we thank you.
Throughout our journey, we've established that it is in fact a battle. You are with us, we are collectively fighting against all of it. Occassionally it, somehow, gets the better of us. We have had enough of it. So we are fighting and clawing daily. To what end? Who knows. No one ever does and if they do, they are not telling us anything.

Specifics: Thank you Rooney, Thank you Olli Schulz, Thank you Lani, and thanking you very kindly all of our friends new and old who came to spend an hour or 2 in your city wherever that had been. It was a pleasure to meet you / see you again.

The summer plods along. The cave is the only safe area so there are songs and a lot of them. At the moment, theres no plan, direction, or general gist of things. We are wandering aimlessly through a field of sound and air conditioning. Someday soon we will meet again, Im sure.

We miss you.

Dungeon Life

We have a theme. A miserable, repeating, yearning desperation. The fight, struggle, and eventual loss. It is so critical to our being at this very moment, even our own discontent is feeling a little less repetitive. Please, please winter...we are trapped in a cavernous subterranean realm. It may look and even sound like a beautiful getaway but it is, in fact...freezing. We've said it before, the posts and complaints weigh heavy even on our own constitution but its never been so unexaggerated.

Complaints aside...

Things are just fine.

We are halfway through the recording process for a new EP which should find its way to shelves this summer. The songs are sounding lovely. There is a single title we can confirm as of this date. It is a new song called 'Settlers Stars'. Well, they are all new songs so...moving on.

Tour. Indeed. Europe begins in May. We are confirmed for a week of shows with Rooney. We also understand that all of the dates have not yet been posted and of course we would love to come see all of you in your respective cities, towns, etc...that being said, trust us, if you do not see it updated as of yet there is a good chance that we will make it to a coordinate nearer your location sometime this spring/summer. More on this as it develops.

Back to the front. The door is closing, sunlight eroding, bitter chill settling back in. Please spring come for us soon. Its not too late.

The West

Day 6 in the wonderful west. Los Angeles again and further south into San Diego. Thank you to those who came to spend some time with us. Duo set is working itself out.

We are packing up our temporary home here in beautiful Newport Beach. It is ending too soon but we are excited to be hitting the road with Jarrod in the morning. So far so good.

Here are some things to contemplate:

Tomorrow on to Arizona.
Some new songs on the horizon. Please get in touch and keep us company out here on the road.

Sentimental Jets

We began 2011 in solitude.
Cold punishing drifts of newly fallen snow they are climbing our front room windows. Salted ice flows create a treacherous impass at every turn and our winter assures wholeheartedly to leave would be, at the very least, an endeavor.
It is not unthinkable. Home, fireplaces, song, local friends while the days fall away. All comforting. All now, beginning to feel more routine rather than a sentence.

Routines. Not our best color. The focus shifts to escape. Comfort giving way to monotony. Something must be on the other side. A something which must be worth stirring us from the icy caverns of this dead of winter.

Los Angeles.

Leaving the 7 degrees fahrenheit, concrete, frosty malcontent of a Sunday morning to arrive in an 80 degree, palm strewn loveliness of that very same morning is the perfect remedy. We have arrived intrigued, thawed and renewed.

Its been a long time since we've last checked in here. A year? Perhaps. Since we've last spoken some things have happened.

Meet Your New Love.

Thank you for listening, we are very pleased that its here and you are hearing it. A benchmark for the beginning of the new journey.

A month has already passed since the opening words of this statement were written. Already travelled around the world since those thoughts landed on keys. Its still cold, its still winter and oddly enough, flying back to Los Angeles to start the second trip of 2011.

Its been a busy one, but for now, we are saying...not promising we shall be a bit more attentive. Tour is happening. Lets get re-acquainted.
