So this is the new year??? And I feel quite a bit different ;) Slight adjustment to one of the best Death Cab songs EVER! From us, to you.
It’s 2013 folks! I hope that you are all well as you read this. It’s been a while since we’ve reached out to you guys and caught up. House of Heroes has been taking it pretty easy these past few months and it’s been pretty great in my opinion! I (Tim) got married in November to the lovely Stephanie Smith (now Skipper)! Colin’s been writing some songs (that he’s gonna share with you Columbus folks next Thursday, Jan. 17 at Rhumba Cafe). And the rest of the guys have just been enjoying friends and family throughout the holiday season.
The break’s been nice, but it’s time to get back to business! It’s a new season for the band. With the release of Cold Hard Want, we fulfilled our contractual obligation to Gotee Records. This means we are quickly approaching “independent” status again! This is exciting/terrifying/awesome/insane as we have been on one record label or another since 2003! This fact coupled with all of the down time we’ve had lately has us re-thinking everything related to the band. We needed an overhaul in our approach to being a band. Everything has been and is being evaluated and adjusted.
Having said that, I feel like we have a good plan to begin this new year. Constant touring has left us a little burnt out. But we still LOVE being on the road and playing shows. So, we’re going to do one short run a month for the first half of this year in some of our favorite regions of the USA! Here is the plan:
FEB. (21-28)- Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Louisiana area.
MARCH (probably mid-month)- South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama
APRIL- (last week of the month)- Ohio, Michigan, Indiana
MAY- Either North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, DC, Eastern Penn OR Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri
If you want to book the band for any of these runs, please hit us up at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are a college or University and would like to book the band in any of these regions, please contact JR Montes at email@example.com
We will definitely keep you guys updated as this all begins working itself out! Can’t wait to see some of you this year!
