Hey dudes, what gives?
Last week I was reading Josh Tehee's Fresno Bee article about the recently released lineup for the FresYes Fest. Y'all were announced as the headliners. Awesome! You two are the best! The music's great, the live show is fantastic, and the band hasn't played in a while, so it's a BIG DEAL.
Here's the problem though. The article embeds a music video of yours and states, and I quote, "Here the band plays in advance of the release of its long awaited new album." That's it, right there. The freaking understatement of the year.
So I have to ask: WHEN IS YOUR DAMN SECOND ALBUM COMING OUT?!
Ghosts (your fantastic 1st album) was released over six years ago! That's an interminable amount of time! Sure you've released a few singles here and there, but come on, I'm fiending over here! I've been hearing about the new Strange Vine album for years now and it's starting to feel like the search for Sasquatch. The world needs some of them Cordova hot licks and tasty Blesse one-handed drum fills. Ohhhhhh lordy give me some of that sweet sweet dusty Fender Rhodes (I'm actually listening to YouTube videos of people fucking around on Rhodes as I type to scratch the itch).
Look, I know these things take time. And you've got a lot going on. Totally understandable. All I'm saying is, I'm a fan of your music and I can't wait to hear more of it when the time is right.
I just hope that time is like next week or something. Give or take a day.
