I'm just as excited as anyone else, even if it's nothing huge. Straight from the horses mouth, the return of Ed Gein:
"Ed Gein is not broken up. We are actually finally going to get together
and start playing again. It's been difficult to get all our work
schedules and lives to line up, and to be honest, after years of
constant touring and everything we weren't in a huge hurry. But it
seems we've got a game plan now and are going to see what happens. None
of us are sure exactly where this is going to go but I think I can say
with some certainty that you shouldn't hold your breath for any tours.
Maybe a few scattered shows...maybe a short tour in the very distant
future...but right now we all just want to write some tunes and enjoy
our home lives. We are planning to get together next week to practice
together for the first time in over a year and a half. Should be
interesting to see what happens....."
Also, the Oak and Bone dudes have some out of town shows this week in New York City and Pennsylvania. Go to their page to see what's up and go check them out because they are a force of nature to be reckoned with in the live setting. http://www.myspace.com/oakandbone
As for their record... it's off to the presses! I'll be adding a pre-order soon on the webstore. I want to wait for the Night Owls stuff to be in the bag before I do so though so I can put both up for pre-order at the same time and do some special deal for you folks. So keep checking, it ought to be up soon.
