After a weekend of shows with our friends from Brooklyn Goes Cube (who are celebrating the release of their brand new album - go check it out), we are taking this week to get our ducks in a row before we head out to Europe next week. Thanks to all who came out to the shows, we had a great time.

We are incredibly excited to make our way overseas to promote our new record that comes out May 29th in Germany on Make My Day Records! Also keep an eye on the Mylene Sheath, who will be starting US preorders very soon. More news on that and the Stiff Slack Japanese release (featuring the crazy remix work of Justin K Broadrick and Philip Jamieson) coming soon.

Beyond the record, we have two new t shirt designs that will available this tour:

And lastly, I just set up an account on Twitter so you can follow us day to day while we're pounding absinthe and shaking clubs to pieces all across Europe:

The plan is to bring a video camera and do some doc work while we are over there as well, so hopefully the absinthe and shaking clubs to pieces won't get in the way of that.

Hey everyone.

We've got a lot of things that we've been busting at the seems to announce and finally the time is upon us.

Our new record "The Foundation, The Machine, The Ascension" will be released by three amazing labels all across the globe.

In the United States, the good people at The Mylene Sheath will be releasing our three part epic on 3x12" vinyl and also on CD in a 6 panel gatefold sleeve. (

In Europe, Make My Day Records will continue their ever strengthening relationship with Radar Recordings by releasing our new record. Look for alternate artwork and a tour from us to support the release in June. (

Last, but certainly not least, our album will be released in Japan on Stiff Slack Records featuring alternate artwork and remixes by Justin Broadrick (Jesu) and Philip Jamieson (Caspian). (

All artwork is being designed by our good friend Ira Bronson at Black Day Creative and he has personally promised me that this will be his most brilliant visual creation to date.

On the touring front:

Next month takes us down to South By Southwest with Caspian, where we will be playing a couple shows including the Radar Recordings / Giant Steps Finale Party with Pelican, Wolves in the Throne Room, Tombs, Caspian, Junius, Adai, Pack of Wolves, Battlefields, Irepress, Calm Blue Sea and Howl.

We're also very excited to announce that we'll be crossing the pond and spending about 6 weeks touring Europe and the UK in support of the new record. We're still putting together details, but we'll be doing some shows with At The Soundawn who are most excellent and there will be a few other surprises as well.

Look for more news (yes there will be more), more details, and more tour dates over the next several weeks and months.

Happy New Year to everyone.

After what turned out to be quite a hectic year for us, it was a pleasure to get the whole family together for the Last Night on Earth 6 at the Middle East downstairs on 12.30. It was quite a night and we want to thank everyone who came out. It's incredible that it's been six years already.

If you haven't already noticed, you'll see that we are going to be back on the road quite a bit in 2009. First we're playing a couple shows around Boston, then we are heading back down to SXSW, which is always our favorite time of year. After that we have lots more in the works as well. More on all that soon.

We have finally completed our record (yes it's done!) and are now just getting all the release details in order. The way things are shaping up this record is going to be available all over the globe and we're very excited to be bringing you specifics over the next several weeks.

So stay in touch. We seriously can't wait to get back in the bus and immerse you in space rock.
