The rear cool great record good news well it we're creating a new one now Austin who are very we're very proud of the the first one so we kind of you know of course we we wanna put as much integrity as possible the second month and taken. Awhile for us to kind of I gotta say that first go ship record is probably one of the most solid like initial releases I've heard a long time. Are you guys can be maintaining that same direction are going to be trying to make any changes in the sounded all you can maintain that. That it's I would say it's it's going to be similar but the others. Derby have a bit of evolution I suppose it'll sound like us. But it in there be some maybe some surprises in Italy and and he'll. We kind of experiment a lot of bands do and and and there it is right you experiment with. You know what we try this what we try that no overtime will probably develop something it's more seriously okay. Kind of experimenting with you sound a little known as there is diverse and there's a lot of diversity on the first record and you know that I would say there's even more. In this 12 degrees so far as we're trying to. One upped the first record and I you know got to step it up I Bakes also by personally bench trying to do like OK what if I write something in a weird time signature you know. But what's on the grind that it W a NTT's and I wonder I wonder can I write something in a weird times Mr. Bush also make it catchy like that I think that's the that's the challenge right. Yeah yeah you know once song ends with all in 54 I believe. Yeah you know you have you have a lot of like melodic variation go and I'm like on the song we're working on right now. Yeah a lot of key changes and a lot of you know and dirty progressive music stuff like you know noses in the music theory books pretty deep right now yell you guys all do you rank Aussie guys are all really talented musicians to it's it's cool to see you know.

Solidified alive lineup I am really really stoked to see you guys play so let's talk a little bit about what you guys are working on here in the future let's start with Goshen. They have something. Petrie on page to tell a little bit more about what that means for those who don't okay well it's. I don't know I don't know anything it's kind of like is is it's all like a special. Take a special kind of club you can you can be a part of negotiate negotiate club if you like a big fan you really like what we're doing. Well any of the opportunity to get its early access to music we're gonna monthly bases. As delegate for the first time around when we did this we had cakes are campaign ran for so everybody basically pre ordered the record like okay. Tutors in 120 box and I'm not gonna get my album for like you know five months there are a heck is helping to fund the process of making right right yeah but this time around it's more like oh okay. Here's. Five bucks and every time we put out a segment of music. You get that simulate a song to be a very sad songs in guide you get this you get the single so nice here. Buying from our music directly from us but. Calls of helping make it out helping us do it as as more of sustainable. Means of income and operations so we can just devote more time. You know do this let a job. Negotiable all the time every time sometimes also had a time it's like it you can go without that Taco Bell taco for like a week in gives like a subscription service in plan instead of describing to Vanity Fair magazine mayor Oscar right into the ocean Octavia school and much better Arctic phantom monthly. Figures I know it it's put out politically cool because it's. It puts us in the position where we have to be continuously creative and we're gonna do more than just music to our revenues are are based things and annoy you too much to waive it for a really fun. And people can expect to hear new songs from us on a more regular basis like you know us singles like once a month. Kraft is almost like a thing or you couldn't like subscribe and have it set up to like an auto pay. So like when I when describing Netflix they take my eight bucks out totally and then you just keep moving right right so every time lazy it's something out. You know then subscribers. Will we will pay either whatever they there reg amount is it going to be different levels. The people that pledge a whole bunch will get all sorts of access the interest in things but you know eight in his. Pledge as much as like one dollar for instance they still get access to. Go exclusive kind of contents. Like on on the young nun and our future rises were just looking for. You know launching this campaign in and getting. As much support as possible from the people who. Wanted CS release more music and that kind of thing and that's the cool part about. Especially the northwest scene having been here for so long it's a very supportive community I mean like you guys are polling shows together everybody who's listened to this like they know. The hard work that you have to put in to be in an band you know. Never and go to shows rely it's not easy you know so we got to help each other out now absolutely MR ban should do that more bad should work together and musicians collaborate. Help make him make the seem better we still have a great senior note down a lot of people do support of the there. Let's toss it back and as the underdog and a man totally you know makes it stronger so make sure you follow ghoulish about tedious on FaceBook on Twitter and on instant Graham they got that information coming up this week so you can help them out via port of sort of legal action fan club. And a subscription service. And Dahlia or very still descent next week wolf once you guys launch that wolf we'll you know we'll talk a little bit more about -- areas appreciated and then frank like now that you have your lives your live lineup for belt fed weapon are you guys going to be doing any. Venturing out only be doing little tour I know you have a lot going on but like now you have your beauty got your crew together you know. I'd do I'd I am really stoked about it not unfortunately. Lot of us live in different states so it's that. Little difficult in the low cost the to get togethers so after the shows we probably won't be playing live. For at least another year till next summer the guys better get out to the show this man what we're gonna be doing after this is we're gonna start working on new material. Cruel in a dean have been talking about that and so. Keep the momentum going in parsley who can't go out play reliable all the time as much as I would like to you especially at this point but. It is what it is and it's is better than doing enough and so early I mean to do some and in my pick up you know down the road not just. But yet that's the plan for right now get through these shows work on new material and probably be releasing a single or a three song kind of deal. It will be years on the a half and EPO whatever at the beginning of next year and the often so I'm looking forward to getting all that done and definitely looking toward a plan live again.
