It's finally here! We will be releasing our long-awaited, highly-anticipated, full-length debut entitled Graveyard Soirée on Thursday, May 18th at Belly Up Tavern. We will be joined by SD rock legends Taken by Canadians & Mrs. Henry. A limited run of this poster (created by Courtney Cole) will be available for purchase at the show

ah, spring. flowers blooming. new life emerging. allergies arriving.
time for cleaning. time to hit the gym. time to actually start those new year's resolutions.
sometimes we say "that's life" as a way of rationalizing our obligations. working dayjobs, paying bills, running errands - these are certainly part of many a modern human's experience, but they don't have to define who we are or how we perceive ourselves. our passions, hobbies, dreams, and desires are just as deserving of our time as the things we feel we have to do.
although we spent most of our week rehearsing, and working on our 2 big projects (besides the album), we took time for experiences outside of our work bubble. we celebrated our friend Bijan's 25th birthday (for 2 days!) with soccer, beer pong, ping pong, board games, and planet earth 2. every day we are alive is worth celebrating, but when a friend reaches his quarter-century, sometimes one day of celebration just isn't enough.
This weekend has been a blast! After a racous St. Patrick's evening watching Maszer and Dead Feather Moon at the Pour House, we returned the very next evening for a show of our own! The energy at the Pour House is contagious, and this Saturday's show was extra-special - some old friends from high school (and even our spanish teacher!!) came out to rock. After we delivered the goods to our lovely audience, it was our turn to get groovy to the sounds of Grizzly Business and Mittens.
Sunday marked the return to Stereo Disguise Recording League. The day was comprised of Will laying down vocals that resonate with universal truth, and Brad (our master engineer man) garnishing the mix with flecks of pure studio magic. fucking jolly good.
Upcoming for the week, we got 2 more days of mixing/recording in SDRL! We love the studio life, but the concept of finishing this album is exciting beyond measure. Then, we're headlining at The Merrow on 3/23. We'll be playing with our favorites Imagery Machine, who just released a new single "Higher Tides" (click to scope on Spotify!), and the synth serendipity that is Noble War.
