At first Album 4 will only be sold via bandcamp.com. Later it will be
available on iTunes, Amazon, and all the usual outlets, after the 4-8
week lag time it takes to get music into those systems.

And at bandcamp.com fans can choose to pay something more than the
$1/song minimum if they would like to help us out from under some
substantial debts.
Message From the BandAfter our hiatus announcement in July, we were surprised by the big
wave of fans' comments (on myspace and various blogs and message
boards) - very passionate, very disappointed, so we paid attention to
the pleas to put out unreleased songs and demos. We just finished
pulling together and mastering this set of ten songs.

I'm glad they're doing this. It really sucks that they couldn't do a farewell tour.

I'm so happy that i've only heard 2 of the 10 songs (not including live versions) i was worried it would be mostly material i had already but this is great.

How nice to see a band who truely cares for their fans...unless their "hiatus" is a publicity stunt. But I don't think so. I love these guys, and am incredibly grateful.

EDIT: My doe, part 1? Part 2 has been release, but part 1 never has been., right?
