Well well well....
Today I would appear to be invisible to birds.
After I dropped my son off at school I went for a stroll up in the hills where it is quiet.
I was enjoying listening to the birds and their mad singing when a hummingbird hovered over and stopped right in front of me.
It was like my own personal nature documentary. It hung there, looking over my shoulder, then it swivelled around and looked straight at me. Then I realised. It couldn't see me. I coughed (I have a man cold which is Very Serious) and it looked very suprised and flew away.
Then I started walking down the hill and a woodpecker flew over to a telegraph pole right by me. I stopped to watch it (only about a foot away), expecting it to startle, but again it was calm and still and after looking about a bit started pecking away without a care in the world.
So I am invisible to birds. As SuperPowers go it's pretty pointless. I probably rank down at the bottom of the 2nd division with BadgeMan and TeaLady.

But it's something... It's something.

There now. My album is now actually finished. As I suspected, it is called Magnetic North. I am very pleased with it. It's hard to describe. It's like 12 kids who you would never guess were in the same family until you hear them speaking. See? I told you it's hard to describe.
It will be released (from album prison) on 20th April 2010. I believe it will out in The US and Uk at the same time because I am a Global Sensation.
My plan is to share the new songs with y'all over the coming weeks thus driving you wild with anticipation. I will be very interested to hear what you think of them.

I also plan to do a bit of touring. Not too much because touring makes me fat, but a bit. So far we have dates in Canada and North America but we'll be adding some European dates soon. Here's what we go so far:

April 26
LA - Bootleg Theatre

April 27
San Francisco - Swedish American Music Hall

April 29
Vancouver - Biltmore Cabaret

April 30
Portland - Doug Fir Lounge

May 1
Seattle - Triple Door

May 4
Minneapolis - Varsity Theatre

May 5
Chicago - Schubas Tavern

May 6
St Louis - Blueberry Hill's Duck Room

May 7
Columbus - The Basement

May 8
Philadelphia - World Cafe Live

May 9
Vienna - Jammin' Java Music Club and Cafe

May 10
New York - City Winery

May 11
Boston - The Red Room at Cafe 939

Feel free to buy all the available tickets. I promise to be good.

Right then, then.
Off I go to pilates (pure rock and roll) where I pray I won't be the only one that farts when we're upside down.

Love and music and birds,

The Matt

Yeah, as much as people would probably disagree with this and as much as I love Aqualung's cover of Strange & Beautiful, Hopesfall's edition of this album is surely better than what this is probably going to be.

I don't think I'd disagree with you. I love that CD.

Just saw the name of the album title and came on to say the same thing. Glad to see so many die hard Hopesfall fans already backing them up!
