I’m a Wiener!

It’s official… I’m a wiener! That’s right, Wiener Records is going to be putting out my new EP “Is My Voodoo Working?” How cool is that?! If you don’t know who they are, they’re a subsidiary of the badass and awesome Burger Records. It’s going to be released on cassette, and I can’t wait for you to hear it. I’m also working on some new music videos, as well as more episodes of everyone’s favorite mini-episodic adventure show “Ask Shmoe”. That’s about it for now. Talk to you soon!

FINALLY!! A new update!

I’ve got some awesome news for everyone. Sorry we’ve been MIA for a while, but it’s been because we’ve been hard at work on a whole slew of new stuff.

First things first, there’s a brand new EP on the way called “Is My Voodoo Working”. It’s going to be 6 songs and runs just under a half hour. It’s all over the map and I love it; I hope you’ll love it too. I’m going into Near Alluvium studio to finish up the mixing and getting it all ready for everyone to check out. I’ll let you know where and when you can get it as soon as it’s done. Expect the usual suspects of online stores, plus some physical formats that I’m really excited about.

Secondly, I’m proud to announce that a new episode of Ask Shmoe is coming soon, as well as a brand spanking new radio show! If you loved the Shmodcast, you’ll love this new half hour packed radio show full of music and me ranting and raving. It’ll be great!

That’s about all for now, but be on the lookout for more new stuff very, very soon. I’ll also be updating this site much more frequently now. Hope you’ve all been doing well and hopefully I’ll be seeing your lovely faces at some shows soon!

Take care!

Not Dead

Hey everyone,

I just wanted to send a quick update and let you know we’re not dead and we’re still hard at work on the new album. We’ve got all kinds of new stuff just about ready for your eyes and ears. If you missed it, here’s the latest Ask Shmoe that I put up a few months ago:

Also I just wanted to let you know we’ve been quiet NOT because of lack of things going on, but because of SO much new stuff being done. I’m beyond excited for the future and I just wanted to say thanks as always for the love and support you guys always show the band and me.
