Oct 14 @Township!!!

mizz7We have a rad show to announce. October 14th at Township with All Eyes West, Broadcaster (NY) and Boomerang Brothers. Super stoked about this one. The show is 18+, tix are $5 in advance, $8 at the door. Doors at 8pm. Can’t think of anything better to do on a Monday night!

Bottoms Up is on a vinyl comp!!! East Grand Records’ Bars and Battle Scars comp. You can check it out here. Grab yourself a copy! We will be giving away some free ones. Be sure to follow me on twitter (@themizzi) or the band on Facebook.

Our Fort Wayne show was double booked, so we are rescheduling. Looking at a date in November. We may have something very cool to announce about the November dates we are setting up. Hoping to be able to square it all away by next week.

Long overdue update!

Wow, a lot has happened in the last few months, and we haven’t posted on our own web-site about it… DIY fail! So we released Every Last Stitch in July, along with a music video for Bottoms Up. We hope all of you are digging listening to it as much as we did making it. We had the release show at Liar’s Club… did a weekend in Wisconsin with our buddies from Ghost Sector… and now, we are working on more out of town dates, along with writing another new album (I know, the first one has only been out two months, but 1) I’m unemployed for the time being, and 2) no rest for weary…). We are also working on a second video for another track on Every Last Stitch, and we will announce it soon once we have the details worked out.

Coming up, we have at a show at one of my favorite places, Brass Rail in Ft Wayne, IN on Thursday, Oct 17th. We are working on a date in Western Michigan on Oct 18th as well and we should have details soon. We are also playing Halloween at The Mutiny in Chicago to close out October. In November we will be at Indy’s Jukebox with The Enders on the 22nd. Pretty excited to head back to Indy, last time there was a blast, and Korey got pretty weird.

As we get more dates together, I will post them here, and you can always follow us on the facebooks or me on twitter at @themizzi.

Big huge thank you to all of you who have ordered a CD, they are still available on bandcamp, and to those of you who have been kind enough to purchase a digital download. It really helps out a lot towards putting together another album.

OK, I’m going to update all the other parts of the site that have been neglected now…

See you out there!

Chicago Tonight

247606_10151619003111690_2011292883_nIt’s been a good while since we played in Chicago proper. Tonight, we’ll be at Livewire Lounge, and I’m looking forward to seeing some familiar faces at the show. We pushed back mastering of Every Last Stitch one week to next Thursday, but we’ll have it ready soon enough. Tuesday, we are recording a new track with Jeff Dean @ Million Yen. We have a plan for the track and we’ll let you know about it soon. We will be back in the city on July 23rd for the release party for Every Last Stitch at Liars Club.

OMG Becky

24066322We 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.


The Turnpike Tour

tourimageThis will be a short one folks. Two dates. Tonight, Friday, May 3rd in Toledo, OH @ Frankie’s Inner City. Big thanks to Cody for hooking us up with the show at the last minute! Saturday night we will be in Erie, PA @ The Crooked I with Diemonds.

We are very close to finishing “Every Last Stitch,” Adam is finishing the mixes as we speak, and we will be mastering the record @ Gravity Studios here in Chicago. July will be a BIG month for us. We will be releasing the Bottom’s Up video at a Whoa! Records show on July 13th, and we are hoping for our Liars Club show on July 25th to be the release party for the album! Stay Tuned!
