SO I HAVE SPENT THE LAST FEW WEEKS IN PLATTSBURGH AND I MUST SAY IT HAS BEEN A DREAM COME TRUE LIVING THERE AND SPENDING SUCH AMAZING QUALITY TIME WITH THE HABITANTS THERE IN.
I HAVE JUST DROPPED THE FIRST TRACK TO THE NEW LAKE CITY EP. THAT SHOULD BE DUE OUT SOMETIME IN AUGUST.
THE FIRST TRACK "TRAIN HOPPERS LOVE SONG" WAS A SONG I WROTE AND RECORDED IN ONE DAY. WITH A SHORT VOCAL PART, LAYERED WITH DULCIMER, BASS AND MY FIRST CRACK AT USING KEYBOARD IN A SONG, I HAVE PRODUCED WHAT SOME PEOPLE DEEM AS MY BEST WORK YET. I WILL BE WRITTING AND RECORDING A FEW MORE SONGS FOR THE RECORD INCLUDING AN UPDATED VERSION OF "THE FUTURE IS UNWRITTEN". ORIGINALLY THE ALBUM WAS SUPPOSED TO BE MORE UPBEAT AND ELECTRIC GUITAR HEAVY, BUT I'VE DECIDED TO WRITE MORE LAID BACK SONGS THIS TIME AROUND.
MORE UPDATES WILL COME AS I GET THEM. LOOK AROUND AND COMMENT THE NEW SONG, LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK.
LOVE & MUSIC
IANN ETHICS WILL BE MOVING TO PLATTSBURGH IN A FEW WEEKS WHICH WILL MEAN THAT WORKING WITH GOOD FRIEND JOHN WILL BECOME MORE DIFFICULT. BUT I HOPE TO CONTINUE ON PLAYING SHOWS SOLO UNLESS IN THE EVENT THAT JOHN AND I CAN COLLABORATE MORE TOGETHER DESPITE THE LONG DISTANCE WE WILL HAVE BETWEEN US SOON.
A new three song demo will be in the works soon, featuring such new unreleased jams "Your Kung-Fu Is No Match For My Kung-Fu", "Go Epic Or Go Home", and " Love Is Just A Dumpster Dive Away". i plan on putting out a stellar release complete with a few DIY surprises in store.
so keep up to speed on Electrical Bananas and i'll be sure to keep everyone posted!!!
So, after having a rough day of waking up for work at 5:30 in the morning. being completely unprepared and waiting for John to slip out of work, we managed to hit the road at 6:00.
The show was absolutly amazing and everyone was incredibly generous and welcoming to us.
Yo, Adrian and The Mathematicians i think were the best bands of the night.
definitely very bummed we missed Rainbow Friendship Explosion, and most of Young & Divine.
I really loved the enegry of the room and how everyone just got along and had fun! Plattsburgh is and will always be one of my favorite places to play. hands down.
to Justin Passino: You are my musical inspiration. watching you rip it up for Yo, Adrian! and seeing the love and passion in your eyes gives me all the determination and drive to continue making music and living this DIY punk rock dream. I love you more then any man could ever love another man... without all the kissing and stuff. haha
Thanks to Yo, Adrian for letting us borrow their equipment, and to Cory for singing along, video taping us and of course being the one who helped get us on this show.
And to Liz ho put the show on, and who has been busting her butt to bring back the love, spirit and true DIY punk rock vibe to Plattsburgh again. it's good to see that it didn't die that day at the last 946 Show back in 2004. You've still got it, now share it with everyone!
We'll be back the 26th at the 56 Elm St. house, and many times after that.

Current mood:tiredNEW SONG HAS BEEN POSTED!!!
This one goes out to all of my straight edge friends, enjoy!
The recording is a bit DIY and the drums are sluggish in parts, but it's still a good tune and you gotta cut me some slack; I'm still new at this.
Only 3 more songs to go and the Demo will be ready. I hope everyone is excited for it, I really hope to sell a lot of these! Just so everyone knows profits from this demo will go directly to buying some real studio time and I'll then be sending you a high quality album maybe this summer. So get stoked for the DEMO!!!!
The first batch of patches have been made. There will only be about 50 of them for now and they will be available at shows for $1 each.
Old The Fall Of Autumn merch is in limited supply. I'm giving out pins for free. There are only 5 left of the The Fall Of Autumn/For The Kid In The Back split and those are being sold for $4. The full length is $2 and I still have at least 19 of those left, so grab them while I've got them; I doubt I will make more after they are gone.
Also, I hope to be getting together with Scott & Tyler sometime very soon to work on material and we'll be hopefully playing shows ASAP. SO BOOK US!!!
