Happy New Year, 1997.
Dear Friend,

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 you.

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,
