As we continue  working on this new record and get ready to go to back on the road this summer I can’t help and reflect on years past.  This will be our third full length studio record in 4 years, and our 4th major tour in that same span of time.  Throw in a few EP’s, a live record, and numerous NW mini tours on top.   It’s nice feeling like  we are doing something with our lives, even if it’s only important to us. Shawn and I started in the spring of 2008, jamming out parts in the basement of the delaware house, with plenty of all night conversations about what would happen if we stopped talking about doing something and just actually did it.  The prevailing idea that came out of all of that was “just go, fuck the costs, we’re all in”.  We’ve been staying with that philosophy, and paid (sometimes dearly) for never taking our feet off the gas.   There’s been a few hospital trips, 3 vans, a bus, a few relationships, and a litany of employers that we’ve left in our way.   I don’t think either one of us has any regrets or would change a thing.  We’ve gained and lost some members along the way too, but I feel lucky that I’m still able to call them friends despite our differences involving the band. We’ve always been ambitious, maybe to a fault, but that’s a mistake I’ll happily keep making.  The goal of the band has always been to play, and do it as much as possible.  We’re not looking for a record...
