The time is finally approaching for us to put out this new record and begin to tour again! It's been a long journey, starting in April when we began to write "Dreamer," through a summer of recording and playing festivals, and then months of sitting around doing nothing. It has seemed like an eternity since we've seen you all and we can't wait for the Solid State Tour. It's funny because the last Solid State Tour we did was with Norma Jean like 5 years ago and we were opening. That was actually our CD release tour for "Burning Bridges" and this tour will celebrate the release of "Dreamer!" Where has time gone? Are we old now? Is 25 considered cool?
Next week we fly to NYC to shoot the video for our single "Mad Man." The idea for this video is REALLY cool - think Van Gogh meets What Dreams May Come. Then off to the Solid State Retreat '08! Basically the label will put up the bands on the tour in a pimped out cabin in the mountains of Tennessee for a few days of hot tubs, video games, steaks, and bro time. It's a great way for us all to get on the same page and bring a sense of unity between the bands before we start the tour. It's gonna be an awesome end to 2008 and 2009 will be even better!
See you guys on the road!
Michael and HTD
