We are putting the final touches on the audio for Every Last Stitch, which will be fully mastered on May 23rd at Gravity Studios in Chicago. Ech is putting together the artwork for us, which we are SUPER stoked about.
If you swing by our show at Livewire on May 24th, we are going to burn some copies of the album for you to get WAY in advance of the release, and for FREE. It’s with our buddies in The Bumpus Hounds, who are some rad dudes.
Next month, I’ll be putting out my first official Whoacast! brought to you by Whoa! Records, which is a new podcast I will be hosting. The podcast will include an unscripted, 30 or 45 minute chat with me and an artist / entertainer / music industry type once every two weeks. Musicians typically hunker down and don’t open up much, I’m hoping to change that. We will have the final launch date soon, but you heard it here first, DAN VAPID will be my first guest!!! We will be recording the show on May 26th at our studio.
Last bit of news, which was leaked on facebook by Bandsintown, is that we will be playing on Saturday, July 13th at Token Lounge for Whoapocalypse! 2013 with our friend P.T.’s Revenge, Wrist-Rocket, Cruise Italy, Due North, and Bottle Kids. This will be the DEBUT of our new Bottoms Up video! We will be showing the video on the big screen before our set, so don’t miss it!!! It’s going to be a killer show, and I’m looking forward to playing back at an old hangout for the first time in many years. More details on the show are coming very soon!
Aside from that, I ran 3 miles today, and then walked 4 more, and worked on some more new tunes, which I do a lot while walking, which inevitably distracts me and I end up walking into streets without looking both ways first… Goal is to do another record soon on the heals of Every Last Stitch.
Oh, and I’m going to FEST again this year with Stacy… we gonna get weird, and probably hang with some random Aussies again.
Word to your mother.
