Badmotorboater EP

Our full length, titled “Heaven is Empty” is finally going to see the light of day this Spring. We’re going to have plenty of details about that soon, but in the meantime we thought it’d be fun to get something out a little sooner.

The last time we put out any kind of music for people to listen to was back in the Spring of 2011. For many reasons both true and untrue, we haven’t put anything out since then. We thought it’d be fun to do something on our own and share it.

 We picked four songs: one “unreleased”, one brand new, one old, and one cover. We recorded the songs live at our practice space, Aaron did the art, Trent did the layout, and off it went to get duplicated. So in conjunction with The Seattle Passive Aggressive Zine, we bring you the Badmotorboater EP.

Dude, it's a tape.

The tape will be available at the Seattle Passive Aggressive 1st Anniversary Show at the Highline on February 15th, with Norska, Samothrace, Great Falls, and yours truly. It’s limited to 50 copies. It’ll cost $5, and it’ll also be available digitally on our Bandcamp site.

Just wanted to let you all know…

…that there are some cool things coming up soon. Working on the details and you all will hear about things soon!

BARBOZA, Deadkill, OUT OF TOWN SHOWS, and Other Cool Things.

The folks at Neumos have opened up a new venue in their basement, and it’s called BARBOZA. Seattle already has a good number of venues, but the addition of another accessible club gives bands more opportunities to play, and that’s something we’re obviously fans of.

Our friends Deadkill are releasing their debut 7″ on Good to Die Records (also good friends of ours) and we’ve been asked to play their record release show on May 17th at BARBOZA. It’s very cool that we get to both play in BARBOZA’s opening month, and help Deadkill launch their record.

Speaking of records, we’re buttoning up the details on our new one. We have a title chosen, have a release path, and we’re hoping to have it out this summer. Details will be coming soon, please stay tuned!

At the end of the month we’ll be playing some shows out of town with our buddies in Smooth Sailing. It’ll be our first time playing in California, and we hope to make it a regular thing. We’re capping off the run with a show at the Comet Tavern, along with Princess and Mico de Noche. Here are the dates:

05.30.12 – Portland, OR @ Laughing Horse Books
05.31.12 – Walnut Creek, CA @ Red House Live
06.01.12 – Eureka, CA @ The Ink Annex
06.02.12 – Seattle, WA @ The Comet w/ Princess, Mico De Noche

We’ve been promising mail order for quite some time, but it’s actually happening soon! We have a new batch of shirts we plan on selling online, as well as our split 12″ w/ Mercy Ties, and other things coming soon. Here’s a peak at our new shirts!

Thanks to Doom Toof Design for the work on the shirt. If you need design work, check it out.

More to come!
