Final Words From The High School Football HeroesWell, heres a letter I never thought Id have to write.

UpdateHello World! Greetings from the basement we've been roasting in for the past two months, but don't for a second think that this time we've spent off has gone to waste.

Keep your eyes peeled on our myspace and/or purevolume page for some of these tracks for your listening enjoyment (and if you grow impatient from a lack of updates be sure and flood our manager Randy's email with demands for more!)

For you AIM addicts, the members of Thin Dark Line are now taking shifts using the screenname: Thin Dark Line. They want you to send them an IM; they know you're bored, so just send them one. I'm sure they'll keep you entertained. This will be a permanent thing and the primary way of contacting the band from here on out.

Taken from The Prp : Despite having left the band sometime ago, guitarist John LaMacchia will in fact be writing and recording new material for the next Candiria album with the group, though he has no plans to tour with them. Instead, he looks to focus his time on his Spylacopa project, which is planned to feature contributions from members of Isis, Poison The Well and The Dillinger Escape Plan. For now, a split release between the group and Souvenir's Young America was recently released through Underadar Records and can be snagged here.
