We haven’t updated in a while, not that anyone probably reads this anyway, but, here goes: We had planned on recording way back in March, as things go we had some personal and medical issues that got in the way of that actually happening and recording has been pushed back until September.  I really hate the saying “everything happens for a reason,” and prefer to see things more in the light of “just roll with it.”   That has kind of always been what we’ve done anyway, and I think it has worked out thus far.  We’ve been able to spend more time working on new songs, and it’s hard to express how much better off I think the songs are for it. We haven’t spent a long time just writing songs in a really long time, like since before the great exodus of 3/5 of the band leaving after our first US tour.  I think the mindset these last couple years has almost been one of “we’re gonna keep going, keep writing, keep playing, just to prove that we can.”  It was never about doing it to prove that to other people, but to prove it to ourselves.  I think that as we’ve gotten over the insecurity of knowing that The Hague will continue to be thing, there isn’t as much of a rush just to put something out there. Matt has been with us for 2 years now, and we still have zero recordings with him outside of a few live videos.   I think that all of that time is going to show through in this...
