My memories are like coins in the devil’s purse: when you open it you only find dead leaves.

Currently listening to:

We have completed the first of many European trips, and to say we simply had an incredible time would be unjust. Words can not express the amount of overwhelming emotion we gathered from the experience. This includes the support from mainland Europe, and especially the UK. If you are wondering if we will be back this year, we will. That’s all we are able to say at the moment.

We are now home, taking some time off to relax and recharge in New Jersey. Soon we will be playing a few dates to connect us to South By Southwest, and ultimately home.

As far as plans afterward are concerned, we hopefully will be able to put something together at home, and perform for everyone at some point before we leave again in April. Speaking of April, that is the month we re-release the album that many of you are already acclimated with – except this time we are including some bonus tracks.

To elaborate on the re-release:

- Three tracks will be included at the end of Fake History.

- These include two b-sides from the original release (which, on a side note, happen to be the first two songs that we wrote as a band years ago. Funny how that works out.), and one brand new track which includes production by Brett Gurewitz.

Pre-orders can be handled here.

We plan on being out most of this year, and covering a lot of ground we have, as well as have not covered in the states and elsewhere (Canada? Yeah.). Soon heaps of dates in support of that statement should be announced. For what is already confirmed check here.

That is just about as far as this update can currently go.

    This is a message for Jay B – it’s your long lost friend Sophie from Culver City. Your other long lost friend from CC, Julie Kutner, informed me you’ll be playing SXSW. I live in Austin now!! Do you know the details of how I can get tickets for the show? Email me: sophshep@gmail.com or text (347) 406-2977. Would be great to see you! I’m so proud of how far you’ve come since the Westchester Bar & Grill ;)

  5. I wanted to take a second to make a statement that means a lot to me and is just hopefully read by one of you guys. I’ve been meandering through the music scene the last year, trying to find my niche, and it has totally souren me on the music scene. But in a time in the history of the world when heartfelt and well written music couldn’t be harder to find, you guys are exactly what is left in the scene that is right. I have never loved an album as much as I love Fake History. Cheers from the lovely(ha) high desert. Hope to see you all soon.
