hallo humans and non-humans with ears!
so we wrote a new song and i found a recording of an acoustic version from one of our rehearsals at Fejjland (Jeff's house). By the way, if anyone has video from our last show at the Smell where we played this and some other new songs please post! This recording is pretty shitty and there are plenty of mess-ups, but we thought you all would dig it anyway - its super raw and real! And you can sort of imagine how epic it sounds all plugged in even though I think it works pretty well fully acoustic as well. Also for those of you who haven't been able to make it to any of our shows lately since maybe you live on another part of the planet divided by thousands of miles of ocean or something, or perhaps a different planet entirely, I wanted to give all of you a taste of some of our new stuff too.
The song is called "Eucatastrophe", a term coined by J.R.R Tolkien: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eucatastrophe
We're going to be recording this song as well as a handful of other new songs next month in a proper studio so we will really try to get that available to everyone hopefully by the end of next month, November 2012. Enjoy!
