It has been many a week since we last spoke. Let me explain.
We embarked on our previous summer tour with our great pals and better musicians, Sputniq, the end of July and had two of the best weeks of our lives in this band. We played killer venues, houses, DIY spaces, parking lots, etc., met and made some amazing people/friends, and ate so much In-and-Out that I can't smell a cheeseburger without wanting a shower.
That being said and done, we jumped back in our vehicles and made our long drive home to start our year at school and finish writing our forthcoming LP (!) We are pretty far into it and hopefully it will see the light of day before SXSW. Anywho, that's a story for another day. Upon arriving back home, Jameson immediately jumped right back in the car and headed to Austin to help his girlfriend move and get settled in. And POW! 4 or 5 days later, I get a text around 2:30 in the morning that goes something like this,
"Jameson cut his hand pretty bad. We had to drive him to the hospital and he's now in surgery for the injury."
So, Jameson cut his hand. Pretty bad. Couldn't use the arm. Was in a sling for around 6 weeks and has recently taken it off to begin on the real road to recovery. I ask that you all send good vibes his way, I know he'll appreciate it.
Pressing on, we have been in the jam room.
Turns out, Jamo is a killer one-handed drummer and can play what most can't with two. Freal.
So this is our offered explanation for no shows, no announcements, no activity really on our part. We hope you can all get stoked to know that we WILL MOST CERTAINLY be back very soon. Expect new tunes. Expect big fun. Expect new hands.
We love you all with utmost sincerity,
-Adam and Team Z
