A dozen boxes, 1000+ albums and a shitload of excitement

Yesterday, I got a call in the morning from someone informing me that my band's records had arrived. This person also informed me that they would be delivered to the address I provided on monday and that I also had the option of driving all the way out to their warehouse to pick them up inmediately if I so desired. I think you know what my answer was.

After I got them I thought I'd wait until I got to the drummer's office to open up a box. Who the fuck was I kidding? I stopped the car on the side of the road, popped open the trunk and proceeded to remove one of the 1,031 copies that were sent. I have to admit I had the excitement of a 9-year-old on Christmas morning as I opened it. I looked at everything and read a bit of the credits...I even smelled the fucker. After I wiped the drool from my face, I played the album on my car stereo to deafening volume; didn't sound too bad, if I may say so myself. We also got some stickers, posters, rack mounds and I was informed that our T shirts will arrive in some days. Yeah, that's right: Christmas just got a little more merry than usual.

In the first week of January, we'll provide the distributor with a few hundred copies so they can be in stores by February 3rd. We'll also be selling them at our shows and they'll be available on iTunes and other internet music outlets as well. I'll begin doing press towards the end of January and throughout February. There is a lot of excitement in the air. I'll be sure to post photos and/or videos occasionally. In the meantime, here's a brief little video and please visit our Myspace profile to listen to a few songs from the album. Enjoy.
