Subject : The Crimea – Album done! UK show! US Tour! What else do you want?

A belated happy new year etc.,

2005 may be in its miserable infancy (rain! snow! what the…), but it’s been non-stop for us already. No sooner had hangovers and jet-lag cleared from the last US trip, we were thrown on a plane to New York to finish the album. ‘Tragedy Rocks’ (Mk. 2) is now officially in the can, spruced up with the help of ‘grammy award winning’ Chris Shaw (Weezer, Wilco, Ween and other bands that start with ‘W’).

After a ‘song-off’, mucho fisticuffs and Highlander-style sword-fighting, these songs made the cut: White Russian Galaxy, Lotttery Winners On Acid, Baby Boom, Opposite Ends, Losing My Hair, Here Comes the Suffering, Bad Vibrations, The Great Unknown, Howling At the Moon, Girl Just Died, Gazillions of Miniature Violins and Someone’s Crying. We’re hoping for a summmer release (that’s not a song title, btw)

Before the hang-overs and jetlag clear from this trip, we’ll be on another US-bound plane to tour wiith Ash and the Bravery. We’re here long enough to play one UK show, which is this:

Thursday, March 3 – Barfly, London
(That’s next Thursday for those of you without a calendar)

Check or 0870 9070999 for tickets (we expect they’ll be on sale, for around 5 pounds from the weekend sometime). You can also buy on the door. Also, keep checking the websites (below) for special discounted entry.

The Ash/Bravery tour, is as follows. We’ll be opening up and – as great as Ash and The Bravery are – actively disproving the popular idiom that you ‘save the best to last’.

march 8th – New York @ Bowery Ballroom (with VHS or Beta)
March 9th – Philadelphia, PA @ Theater of the Living Arts
March 10th – Washington, DC @ Black Cat
March 11th – Carrboro, NC @ Cat’s Cradle
March 12th – Atlanta, GA Vinyl Atlanta
March 14th – Houston, TX @ Engine Room
March 15th- San Antonio, TX Sanctuary
March 17-19th – Austin, TX SXSW
March 20th – Dallas, TX @ Tree’s
March 22nd- Albuquerque, NM @ Launch Pad
March 23rd – Phoenix, AZ @ Mason Jar
March 25th – San Diego, CA @ Casbah
March 26 & 27th – Los Angeles, CA @ Troubadour
March 29th – San Francisco, CA @ Slim’s

That’ll be enough witttering for one mail-out. There’s plenty of good stuff along the way – t-shirts, tour journals, video footage. Just keep the browser set to ot to keep up.

We’ll see you on the road. It’ll be long and winding, but it’ll take us home. Eventually.

Lots of love

    Just as an aside guys, many will probably avoid because it plays music at you automatically on the main page. If this were an option rather than default behaviour (and, well, if it received any useful updates) it might not put people off quite so much… music’s nice, but unexpected music whist browsing sucks.

    All the best over in the US! =)
