"introducing my band! maxwell peebles on rhythm guitar, ben pearson on bass, erik ratensperger on drums, and john eatherly on lead guitar. what a good looking group of guys! i can't wait to start traveling in a smelly van with them.

we had a another great practice last night after a full of day of recording. we are getting ready for our two shows next week, and we are all very excited! also some more shows got added to our tour in october, so see if we're coming to your city on the myspace page.

finished up the b sides yesterday. we had ben and max come play on one song. it was the first time we actually had a live band recording. usually it's just john and i doing everything, and really it's mostly john. anyway, we might play one of the covers on monday if we can get it together."
