Just got back from Seattle where I saw THE HELM play with motherfucking Undertow and Unbroken. Holy shit that was awesome. But now time for some bizzzz-nesss...
Throughout the Fall a number of our bands/best friends will be hitting the road and playing shows. First and foremost will be the massive Prize Country tour in support of their new full length, "With Love". The CDs just came in and those orders have been sent. Still waiting on the LP, though it ought to be within the band's hands around the halfway point of their tour.

And one last bit of news before closing this out, it looks like THE HELM and OAK AND BONE will be doing a short East Coast tour (only about a week) right after Christmas/ early New Years. If this sounds interesting to you, and you've got the stones to book a hell of a show for them drop 'em a line and let 'em know. The exploratory committee is currently fielding research to determine how this little tour will play out....
