a little update from our little band
wow, time flies, the last update here was dec 30th!!! what slackers we are. while we have been somewhat quiet here, things have definitely been moving on our end!
speaking of time flying by, as of next month we will have been a band for 10 years. nearly a 1/3 of our lives. 2 EP’s, 2 7″s, 2 full length albums, a few different compilations, some demos, remixes, and plenty of songs that will never see the light of day, all while having the privilege of sharing the stage with some terrific bands, in a variety of places we couldn’t have imagined. we’ve some great new friends along the way and its absolutely crazy to realize, but amazing nonetheless.
we started the band with little expectations aside from playing together a few nights a week, perhaps play a few shows, maybe “put out a cd or something”, but most importantly we just wanted to create honest music that moved us. we are more than humbled that over the years its moved some of you too.
most of you who follow us probably know that for the past 4 years we have been living on opposite coasts (2 of us in NYC and 2 in LA), and even as life gets more complicated as we get older, we have remain committed to writing more songs, playing the occasional show, and most importantly sharing time amongst the 4 of us as great friends. we are honored to have shared our journey with you thus far and appreciate you rolling with us! honestly, your support means more than we could ever express. thank you for that!
so what’s next?
in the coming weeks, rishi will begin a new chapter of his life in london. while its going to be hard to be further away from him (we love seeing him!), this is actually super exciting for us on a variety of fronts, two of which are:
1. rishi has wanted to live in london since he was a little kid, and his dream is coming true!
2. we may just have to get out there and visit him sometime!
other than that, what do we expect to change? at the moment we’d say not much and things will likely continue in a similar pace (probably a bit slower!) to the way we have been operating. rishi will be back stateside pretty regularly and we hope to continue sharing ideas and collaborating on new music.
in fact, we already have 9 days booked to all be together in NYC mid-october to finish writing our next record which is pretty darn close to being finished. 8 or 9 songs are pretty solid, and we will likely wrap up a couple more ideas to try and finalize everything so that next time we are together we can record this thing. at the bottom of this post, are some samples of these new songs along with little videos from when we were together in feb/march (the tracks are all live demo’s of new songs)
speaking of all being together, we are close to finalizing plans for a show on friday oct 17th here in NYC. nothing is fully confirmed yet, but as details come available, we promise to share 🙂 be on the lookout for that, as we’d love to see you all. its likely the last show for a bit and will almost certainly be our only show this year.
we try to keep our site updated regularly though its clear we miss the mark there 🙂 in the meantime, you can always catch us on twitter, facebook, or instagram all of which are updated pretty frequently.
thats all for now! all the best everyone and thank you for your continued support!
