News - 12/3/2009

Some news to relay. Thanks for being patient with us as we gather our collective thoughts in preparation for 2010.

New Album
- We are currently in the writing process and we are becoming extremely excited about this new record. We have about 9 songs ready to go, some of which will be played next year, maybe even starting in January. We'll probably be recording sometime early to mid next year. Song titles and album name will be decided upon later, so we'll announce that once it's set.

- We are currently in talks with doing a split cassette tape with our friends in The Dolemite Project. This would be an extremely limited tape, probably 100 copies.

- We'll also have a new 7" out next year, after our record, which will also contain new songs. Will it be a split? We're not quite sure at this point.

- As you know, we are playing SXSW (South By Southwest) We are currently unsure of when/where we'll be playing. But given this opportunity to play, this means we'll be doing about a week tour around it. We'll have a routing soon, so please get in contact if you can help out.

- We currently have 2 shows just about ready to go in January
January 15th - The Blvd Cafe in Boyle Heights w/Landmine Marathon and The Network + more.
January 16th - TBA - Riverside w/Landmine Marathon

- We're working on new merch for the new year. I realize a lot of our stuff is old and crappy, but hey, we have to get rid of it. So please, if you can, spend a little bit of cash to clear us out of this bullshit and we'll get some new stuff up there as soon as possible.

That about brings us up to speed. There's a lot going on but without a new record, we're kind of at a hault. We'll have more details on everything in the coming months and we'll be sure to let you know asap.

Thanks again,
The Funeral Pyre
