We recently did a live session with our friend and polymath Chris Mathews Jr, proprietor of Joonior Studios. We did a session back in 2011 and thought it was time to showcase some songs released on “Heaven Is Empty”, as well as a brand new tune. Enjoy.
Here is the official video for our song “Dead Air”, off of Heaven Is Empty.

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.
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.
…that there are some cool things coming up soon. Working on the details and you all will hear about things soon!
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:
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!
It’s been a very very very long time since we’ve posted here. Thankfully our upcoming shows and Twitter feeds are posted here, otherwise people would probably think that we’re dead!
We’ve always planned to release a new record sometime this year, and we always had mid to late 2012 in mind. In early January we had the opportunity to record at the Red Room (of Matt Bayles fame) with Christiaan Morris. We weren’t going to have another chance until much later, so we jumped on the opportunity. We were short a couple of songs and had to cram a bit, but I think we ended up with something really cool.
The plan to release it later hasn’t changed, however. We know we’ve been tweeting and Facebook-ing up a storm about being in the studio, but the plan is still to get it out sometime in the summer. Now that it’s finished, we’re going to be take our time getting artwork ready for it, save up for a vinyl press, and possibly even show it around.
In the meantime, we’re going to do the usual “band” type things that we’ve been lazy about. New shirts, some stickers and buttons, that sort of thing. We’re hoping to do another session at Joonior Studios (see the videos to your right), learn some covers, and play some shows with our friends. We’ll being seeing Portland and Bellingham again very soon, and if all goes well… CALIFORNIA!
