So we sort of got caught up in the long drives of the end of our tour and suddenly, it was over. And we didn't even update the blog! Needless to say, from the last post until now, we've played some unbelievable shows and met some incredible people. Our homecoming show at the Great American Music Hall was one of the most wonderful experiences of my (and our) life(s). Many thanks to all of you who made it out and to the other bands (Birds and Batteries and Social Studies) for being wonderful and making great music.
Since then, we've played the Tour Kickoff for Low Red Land (hope the road is great, dudes!) and, just last week, a great show with Nina Nastasia & drummer extraordinaire/mad scientist Jim White. Coming up, we have a tour kickoff of our own at 12 Galaxies with the Parson Red Heads, Short Stack, and Matt Bauer. Then we embark on a 12 day, 11 show West Coast Tour up to Eureka, Portland, Seattle, Olympia, Eugene, Chico, and down to Long Beach and Los Angeles. Details can be found at www.myspace.com/orthewhale.
We're writing new songs and will be heading into the studio at the end of the year and beginning of next year in preparation for our new record. It's good to be back.
Also, Julie is out on the road with Birds and Batteries (www.myspace.com/birdsandbatteries) right now. Please go out and support them or give them a listen and say hello.
