It's true that we haven't been keeping you all updated on our standings and how things are going for us in general. in fact, most of you have noticed a decrease in activity over the last few months, and with the fiasco surrounding the OTEP show, you really haven't seen or heard from us much at all. The fact is that since shifting the lineup, we've had to postpone recording to integrate the new members and write even more new songs. Though the writing process continues, as always, we are finding ourselves more focused than we've ever been, and to that end we are beginning to record this week. We've also been pouring effort into expanding our web promotion, because it's just stupid to have all this free shit available and not use it. basically, these days we're working as hard outside practice as in it to ensure that things will move forward and upward. today we were represented at the music is your business seminar, given by Christopher Knab and hosted by D4D, which provided very much valuable information and insight as to how bands should operate for success. be aware that this will have an impact on the way we plan our performances and songwriting, as well as many other aspects of our existence that would bore you, the fan, with details. suffice it to say that we intend to put on even better shows, and write even better music in the future. we recently got on facebook and twitter, as well as reverbnation, so hit us up on those if you haven't done so. we'll try to keep these updates a little more regular for you so they can be shorter than this in length. keep kicking ass in the moshpits and we'll keep inciting riotous activity at the shows. thanks, --Illusion Of Choice.
