So you may or may not be thinking, "what ever happened with the whole New Record out in August 2008?" Well let me tell you.
This is nothing like a last ditch effort. (from the brand new song Bigger Than You or Me)
In an effort to keep the final product up to our own standards we decided to push the release date to October. See our Myspace Page for show dates (the October dates are obviously the CD release shows). More info will be provided as it surfaces.
We were pretty ambitious thinking we could get the record out in August, and by setting that original goal I think we pushed ourselves more than we ever have. It has been fun to see everyone rally to make things happen. I don't think you will be disappointed with the final product. Demitri is in the mixing stage right now and I wouldn't be surprised if his brain explodes before the process is complete. If you know him and have his cell number shoot him a text message to cheer him up in the studio. He has been putting a lot of time and effort into the making of A Sense of Urgency and it shows.
This Friday we are doing something we have never done before, we are having a UY "family" listening party. The band, families, and other individuals that have played a role in the process will be gathering at Lowbrow Studio to hear the "nearly final" mix.
Hope to see you at a show. We are planning to make the CD release shows a bit more "epic" so you won't want to miss out (think- guest musicians, additional instrumentation, blah, BLAH, I can't give away too much...)
Love you all,
