Happy New Year, 1997.
Happy New Year! We hope you enjoyed 1996 and the recent holiday season.
This year we celebrated our 10th anniversary as a band, Randy had his
first child, Glen had his second, Todd (with Dean's help) built our
rehersal/recoding studio, and Dean moved into a new home. It was an
unusual year for us in that it was the first since 1989 that we didn't
tour extensively. We have been productive though, and are just a few
days away from completing out new record. Once again we worked with our
old friend and producer Gavin MacKillop, and recorded at our own studio.
The album doesn't have a name yet, but we're really excited about it
and, in fact, we think it's our best record yet. We hope you agree. Look
for it and us sometime around spring in a record store/concert hall near
Because it's been a while since we've toured and put out a new record we
feel we should tell you why we took such a long break. You see we've
always felt that a band's purpose, the reason for making music, is to
express and explore things that are happening in one's own life.
Sometimes though, a band can be so all-encompassing that the life you're
trying to explore gets pushed aside. So, we decided to take some time
off and spend it on ourselves. Now, as a result, we're working together
better than ever and are really proud of the music we're making. Thanks
for your patience. We can't wait to get back to touring and look forward
to seeing you at the shows.
All good things,
