The Most Beautiful Time of the Year

The first day of the fall season was roughly 2 weeks ago...and we all got to see it a little early while up in Canada. It's my favorite time of the year...when you get to see all the trees change color...the days cool down and the nights get brisk. Well in Canada, they get ridiculously cold.
Our tour through the "Great White North" was one of the best times we've had in awhile. It had been close to 10 months since we were last on a bus....a little weird at first but it all came back very fast. It wasn't so much a tour as it was a 2 week party. Our beautiful neighbors just above us like to have a good time...who wouldn't with their cold beer and beautiful women. We had the opportunity to showcase some of our new material, which went over quite well. Playing new songs is great...the old ones have been played out a bit seeing that we were out for 19 months straight playing them over and over and over again. It's a breath of fresh air and I think the audiences were happy to hear them and liked them. So most of you have probably heard "Lights and Sounds" which we put up on our site for download....different huh? Hope you are enjoying it. Some others may have a live version of another new one called "Space Travel" which wasn't supposed get out there, but I hope you like that one too!
We are all back in Hollywood at the moment...I don't like this place. The last week has been more studio time for us. We finished up mixing our new record with the man Mr. Tom. He worked on our last record and we went back to him for the obvious reason that he knows how to make us sound good. We've got 2 shows coming up in San Diego over the next couple of days..hope to see some of you there. We're looking forward to embarking on our fall tour...its gonna be a good time! Come join us...until then...work hard...play harder...and watch Lost on Wednesdays nights. Six Feeet Under is over so I had to find something new...I didn't know what I was in for. Send me a PM we'll talk about it.
Oh yeah...and going back to a question I answered way back when about the best live show I've ever seen...I saw Brian Wilson a month ago at the Hollywood Bowl. Greatest pop song writer of all time...enough said.

p.s. Maryam from Singapore suggested I come on here and say hi since it's been so long...so you have her to thank for the unintelligent rambling.
