I have been slacking on keeping things up to date here. We made it home from our tour with Broadcaster. It was one of the best experiences we have ever been a part of. We have already talked it over with Broadcaster and are planning to do another four day North East trip this winter. If you’re not listening to these guys yet, do yourself a favor and download Joyride.
Jump Start Records has posted the pre-order for our split 7″ with Hanalei. If you asked me, when I started this project,if we would ever be releasing a split with Hanalei on Jump Start Records, I probably would have said no. To be working with such a great musician and a record label that I’ve been following/supporting since the seventh grade is an honor. Please head on over to http://www.jumpstartrecords.com and pre-order a copy. The first pressing of 300 is on half red/half blue split colored vinyl. The jackets will be screen printed and hand numbered. After copies are given to the bands, Jump Starts new distributor, and pre-orders are filled, there probably won’t be many copies left so I suggest ordering soon.
We are currently booking a few more shows between now and December. I am confirming shows in Philly, Baltimore, and Westmont this week. We hope to announce two to three more shows on top of those. There is also a very good chance that I will be doing a solo performance at Wayward Council at Fest 10. I’m waiting on a confirmation. These shows will be in support of our new split.
After we have finished up these shows for the year, we have confirmed some recording time to complete demo’s for our next album. This should begin in early December. Once these rough versions are finished, we’ll do a little final surgery to the songs and begin on booking studio time to complete proper recordings of the songs. As of now, it looks like it will be a six song EP.
This is our guideline for the rest of the year. I’ll be sure to post updates on the shows and recording process as we get more information. For now, follow us on twitter(@aspiganj) and like us on Facebook. I constantly update these sites with information on shows and things regarding/not regarding the band. We have quite a few pictures from the tour posted on Facebook. These next few months will be exciting.
