Possibles

We are working on doing some more shows this winter so please be ready to come help support us, and in return we'll play a lot of the new material that we've been putting together during our time off. I believe the first show will be December 2nd with Ghost heart from Grand Rapids, Michigan. This isn't completely confirmed yet, but seems likely and is planned to take place at The Burlington Bar here in Chicago. So if you read this mark it on your Calender, and regardless check out Ghost Heart!! They're friendly guys that create beautiful music. http://www.ghostheart.com/media/ In other news, we are planning on recording very soon. So expect to hear something new SOON! Hopefully something on vinyl if all four of us can put in some overtime at work. Expect a midwest tour early next year as well! Expect thing more frequently posted here!! Friends, Cheers!

July 17th, 2012

The sickly heat that the summer has spilled on us like our drunk aunt's drink at fourth of July (except that drink is 105 degrees) has given us a dizzily prodigious need to write and record. That's exactly what we're going to do. Our show at the Whistler was filled with the inspiring scene of rosy cheeks and mixed drinks. We thank all of you who braved the late bill to make it out and make it our best show to date. It was so much fun that we'll be taking a break from performing live to write and record new music over the next month or two. So start saving those pennies your significant other flings at your precious cat, apply named Prometheus (he's always stealing your lighter just when you need that three A.M cigarette after a heart wrenching loss in a heated game of Risk), so that you can come see us a month down the road and hopefully enjoy some of our newest music. The members of Grandeurs, Trent, Corban, Aj, and myself are beginning a new way with the band. Not so much a change in style or sound, although evolution within a group is natural of course, instead we are beginning a more involved and serious endeavor with our music and the band itself. It's an extremely exciting time and we appreciate all of your support. Marriage may be in the future for us if Illinois changes its stance on polygamy, fingers crossed! Stay tuned for more updates, random writings, ridiculous drunken drivel, and most importantly new tunes.

Summer

So we are working really hard on new material for our next release, and also we'll be randomly squeezing these new songs into our summer sets. I'm hoping for us to have something new out by this fall sometime so please keep checking back with us. In the meantime we will be doing a show here and there in the Chicago area this summer. Please be sure to make it to our Beat Kitchen show coming up on June 7th w/ Shores!! Also if you didn't catch our Sleep Debt music video on Facebook take a gander.

-Winter Cabin Trip

Recently we found ourselves ready to escape this big city, and pushed ourselves to get a good chunk of time off with our respective work places. We ended up spending a solid four days at the Whiteley family cabin out in Union Pier, Mi. There is not really any time I can compare the effects this trip had when we first drove into the snow covered town, pulled up to the lake front cabin, heard nothing but Lake Michigan, and could see every star in the sky. Union Pier is a big vacation town, and being there in the winter was surreal. The place made us feel like we were the only people in the world, and was a great contrast to our daily living in Chicago. So I'd like to share some pictures, and encourage all big city dwellers to vacation in seclusion.
