Anonymous asked: Has shores. broken up?
this keeps coming up lately, for some reason? so let’s be clear:
while we are challenged by usual life things like geography, wives, jobs, finances, girlfriends, hangovers, other bands, naps, runny noses, bumming, etc., we are still on the same path we have always been on: making the music that we strongly feel we should be making, and doing whatever we can with it, whenever we can.
that said, here are our current plans:
-midwest tour-ish in july [details forthcoming]
-our fourth lp, “precedents,” which we recorded in 2012 [details soon]
-another “tour de fest” in october [live anywhere in the midwest/east/south and want us to play? let us know!]
-our fifth lp [there are lots of songs]
stuff! soon! thank you!
sorry we missed valentine’s day. again.
it’s been a bit. a personnel change and life have fogged the path that had become our routine for the last couple of years, which has been a welcome breather of sorts, and a chance to sharpen our focus. alas, only some finishing touches and technicalities stand in the way of us being able to tell you more about our raucously bummeriffic fourth LP.
in the brewing stages: plans for the tracking of a fifth LP, as well as some shows and other various mischief.

we would like to take this opportunity to let you all know that we have officially added our very good pal and previous fill-in bass player patrick boylan to the fold, on third guitar duties, and will be playing as a 5-piece starting this month!
we have also added our annual pre-fest drunk at 1982 in gainesville to the itinerary, and are very stoked to be playing alongside some of our fest favorites and good friends yet again!
