Summer Update #3 / Animal Nation on Wax

My bandmate's back, and you're gonna be in trouble.

Mike, along with our longtime friend and new-found road manager Jeff Waters, landed in Montreal last night.

It's time to party.

Our first show is set for next Thursday in Ottawa on September 30, and we've already put all sorts of fun new things together for you and yours.
These shows are going to be amazing, and full of way too much awesome, and assuredly absolutely horrible for our health, so make sure to check out the dates to see when we're playing in your city, and then COME ON DOWN as if we were Rod Roddy, and Drew Carey never existed.

Along with new music, new instruments, and new friends we've also got a couple new items to display proudly on the merch table.

For the first time Animal Nation will have their critically acclaimed album "Understanding More About Nothing Than Anybody Ever Thought Impossible or: How I Learned To Stop Worrying and Love the Music" available on vinyl.

-The 12" vinyl albums come with a full colour 12-page Animal Nation comic-book-insert drawn by Sponge-Bob Square-Pants writer Kent Osborne.
-The vinyl album also comes with free mp3 download of the album so you can easily rock it on your iPod or cassette player and send it to all your friends internetically.
-And, of course, the album features the 12"x12" cover art drawn by Whistler/Japan artist Taka Sudo. The album is worth buying for the album art alone. They make for great wall art, 12"x12" stain coverer-upper, huge-ass rolling tray, fly-swatter, Slap-Chop replacement, etc, so there's really no reason to not have 3 or 4 or 5 of these in your collection.

We'll be selling these almost exclusively at our shows, so make sure to come by and get yours soon! We're ridiculously excited about having our music on wax, and absolutely can't wait to find one in the $0.50 bin at Value Village one day.

Basti Made Me Do It! has also finally been pressed into CD format, which will be available at shows as well.

We're really excited about this, and about this entire album, and I didn't mean to overshadow it with the news about our other album, but shit, we've got our music on wax!

Make sure to download both of these albums on iTunes before the shows, so you can help us out when we stumble on a lyric, or stream either of these albums at CBC Radio3 today! Now!

See you soon.

-Tall Man!!
