  4. Awesome! Chicago is definitely on the list for December! Originally we were supposed to make it up in November but scheduling didn't work out.
  5. Thanks man, it's been a long time coming and we couldn't be more excited to finally have this in our hands. With that said we are halfway done writing the next LP that hopefully shouldn't take as long to come out.
  6. Mike who runs encapsulated just arrived home from a month long tour in Europe. So once he gets settled in and as long as the vinyl ship date doesn't get pushed back it should be VERY soon! Thanks!

  8. Definitely a great experience to have with one of my favorite bands. I've seen them 5 times since 2003 and every single time most if not all of the band meets with fans after the show by their bus. Here's my copy. One last neat story about this, Smith heard me singing to "Love Is A Many Splendored Thing" when they played it. After the show he and Davey asked me if I was coming to any of the other dates on the tour, if I was they would let me sing it with them. This being a once in a lifetime opportunity I take them up on the offer. I had to work for the next two days so after the second day myself and two friends drove overnight after work from Nashville to Tampa. Of course however I become sick with a cold, running a temperature, throat completely pins and needles. At this point though nothing is stopping me and sure enough halfway through the set I'm invited on stage and go for it. Needless to say I was nervous as fuck and sorta flubbed the lyrics at the end. Still a dream come true and 100% worth it. How does all this tie together? On the Nashville date Smith signed the 7" and wrote "Next time you sing!" and sure enough it happened. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lrkyYqHj61o
  9. Stoked Nitro is showing this some love. Interested in these "deluxe" releases also down the road. I learned some interesting facts about this specific release when I met Davey on the Crash Love tour a few years back. I was able to work the show and help the band's crew load in. Towards the end of the night after loading them out and meeting Smith I was invited to hang out with Davey privately for a bit. Having previously hoped for this situation I brought my copy of of the "All Hallows" 7" to get the band to sign. Sure enough I was given the opportunity and when Davey saw the record for whatever reason he was really taken back by it as if he hadn't seen it in some time. I had some questions about the vinyl release, primarily being why the jacket was printed on literal copy paper! He laughed and responded telling me that "Nitro did not want to release this on vinyl AT ALL and we fought to have it pressed. Finally when they agreed they did it as cheap as they could." Who would've thought that this specific record would end up being one of their most sought after releases on wax? Also anyone else a little bummed that they're repressing it on orange?
  10. Friend just texted me and said there's about 8 people outside of Grimey's. Can't hate, though I admit it must suck being out in the rain. Might swing by both places in a bit.
  11. Heads up for anyone attending "The Liquid-Filled Record™ will be $100 and the laser-cut lace will be $20. The “Sixteen Saltines” 12-inch single will be $10 while the “Hand Springs” and “Milk and Honey” swirl vinyl will be $8 each."
