10.sorry dad, i was late for the riots
11.i am the least of your problems
12.a guide to men*
13.the mercy of crows*
15.notes on achieving orbit
*these are working titles. Well, I just made them up now so I could write this out and post it – sue me(*1). Hell, I needed to tell someone who wasn’t in the band about this fucking thing that we made.
Yes. Done. Done’d. Dead. I can’t speak for everyone in our (never red – I HATE red) practice room but I’m incredibly proud of this record. It’s got everything I ever wanted in, on and through it. I’m also proud that we got here at all after all of the fruity fucking obstacles thrown in our way. (*2) We’re working through artwork ideas as we speak. Excitement. Relief. Hope. Hats. We’re hoping (well, it’s pretty damn certain) for a release early next year – more information on this when we have it to give you.
Check out a track from the band’s new Polymers Are Forever EP after the jump…
