Post-Alaska

Looks like this whole blog-writing thing fell off. APOLOGIEEEES. 

Long story short, playing Road to Vans Warped Tour in Alaska was as amazing as one would imagine. In addition to meeting and hanging out with bands that constantly inspire us, that are on the cover of our favorite magazines, that are actually super down to earth, the state itself was unreal. 

The sun never went down, there were bears, glaciers, fresh water that you can collect from pipes coming out of snow-capped mountains, WARM weather (despite the one "isn't it cold?" question everyone asks), and so much more.

As far as what we're doing now...

Well, I will be a ballgirl for my 11th year at the US Open, so look out for me on the TV.

Oh yeah, and the band... ;)

We have a few local shows lined up (NYC! Next one is 9/9 in Brooklyn), ARE WRITING NEW MUSICCCCC (very excited about how the tunes are sounding), and will possibly be shooting another video or so off 'Bitter and Better'. 

As always, thanks for the support and stay tuned! (and PLEASE feel free to badger the guys to write on here once in a while)

Mixes Rolling In

We got back two mixes so far and they sound awesome. We just approved one for mastering and the other will shortly follow after a quick edit. The rest are rolling in slowly but surely! We just booked time to shoot our first video. The song we're using for that is called "Good Intentions". I think that's my favorite one, but then again, I change my mind every time I hear another one. I guess that's a good thing!

I'm trying to convince the guys to blog but they're too cool for school. It'll happen eventually...

Sidebar: I had a pretty cool concert-filled weekend. I saw State Champs on their "Home for the Holidays" tour on Saturday and attended Emo Night at Webster Hall on Sunday. Also, I am quite upset to hear that Jeremy left Paramore but I have full faith that the band is far from over.

That's all, folks! Until next time.

Done Recording!

Recording has always been my favorite part of being in a band. Bringing life to ideas you spent so much time cultivating; birthing your babies! Don't get me wrong, playing shows is definitely up there too. But spending a month in the studio with your friends, fooling around and not thinking about anything other than music, has a kid-in-camp feeling to it that you can't quite get at your 9-5.

Anyway, it's safe to say that this album is the best stuff we will put out to date. We've all grown as musicians and I feel so lucky that we get to actually hear that progression since our first EP was written when I was in high school! 

We're expecting our first mix this week. Shortly after that we'll be shooting our first, real (story-line) music video. Lots of cool stuff to come - including updates to this website (like the layout and this blog) as I click a bunch of buttons and discover things I never knew existed. 

Thanks for reading and get excited for Bitter and Better, Winter 2016!
