We arrived in Charlotte, NC on Aug. 19th with the intention to stay for a month and record a new album with the insatiable and incorrigible Kit Walters (check out his rad band Scapegoat). From the distance of the west coast it’s easy to imagine the “south” as hyper-conservative bible belt xenophobes but the fact of the matter is that southern hospitality is alive and well. Everyone has been so nice and hospitable it’s almost a shame we don’t see more sincere friendliness like this at home…minus the confederate flag patch we saw at the airport, still a little conflicted about that one. The drums are done and guitars are damn close and it’s sounding really fucking good. Seriously, brace yourself. Here’s a little taste of the exploits so far and check back for some updates along the way.
Alright passengers, we’re beginning our decent into Charlotte, North Carolina. If you look to the left you’ll notice tourists being gobbled up by enormous alligators.
Guarding the outlet next to Budget for three hours.

We’re recording with lasers this time around.
Unfortunately, Jason’s best friend had to hear him being torn limb from limb by the native North Carolinian spotted puma.
Sometimes Jason wins, sometimes rock wins. Busted lip and bump on the forehead post-Charlotte house show.
Yummy organic bistro type cafe. Notice the L hands, no they are not gangster signals.
Anthony and Kit collaborating on the final touches.
