Come out to the shows!!!!

New record is coming closer!

Following today’s practice I can honestly say that we’re really close to being ready to record our new full length.  We’re going to record it with John Angelo who did our Painter EP and it will feature 10 new songs.  Now we just have to come up with song titles and an album title – yikes, I hate that part.

Thanks to all who came out to the show last night….

Thanks to everyone who came out to the show last night! It was a lot of fun and cbend was as wonderful as ever.  Ida Sessions will now be releasing a live album on Drug Party Records, it will be a compilation of all their stage banter and take up 8 cassettes – more like a box set I guess.  Steve’s cupcakes were a hit, especially for those who really like corn.  The 359 Parkdale residents were wonderful hosts and their basement is really nice.  I think that’s it.
