Great to see this band get signed to a good label. While they aren't active signing everything that moves, they really do what they can to support their roster. I am also glad to see Hit The Lights get a great label mate. If only Northstar did not call it a day. Oh well.
As for the '09 release, my theory is that they have some tours booked and or have a lot '09 set aside for touring because that is what they do best. And who knows when they plan to have the thing mixed and whatnot.
we will be recording the record mid october into november, so we're trying to get it out asap, which falls into the winter 09 category. winter 09 as in 8 months or so. just pretend you just found out you were pregnant, it will go faster.
