Thank you to everyone who has ordered the vinyl.
To answer the question about the new album:
The writing stage of the album is pretty much finished. At this point there are about 13 or so strong songs we have been working with. Those of you who have been to a show recently have probably heard 5-6 of these and we are making sure we truly love playing them live before putting them on record (this is good advice for any band). The next step is to figure out when and where to record it (and how to pay the bill!). The beauty of not dealing with a big beast of a label is that we can release the album pretty much the day that is is finished and not sit around for months. With that said, it should probably be finished in the next few months. Early spring '09 is a fair bet. Thank you all for your patience while we get this right.
