Happy Summer!

Got the pleasure of picking Jeff Raspe's brain yesterday at a BBQ at Mr. Riley's mom's house to the sounds of friends playing music. It was certainly not a bad way to spend the evening on a day off. Even more exciting, we will be on the air with Jeff tonight (6/15) in the 5 o'clock hour! Tune your radios to 90.5 if you are in Monmouth County, NJ -or- head over to and listen worldwide! We will be playing some new songs off our upcoming album 'Sarajevo' (out 6/18) and talking about our release show/party at The Saint in Asbury Park (also 6/18). Hope to see you soon!
