Very excited about the Ye Olde Maids (AF004) record. There's been a LOT of waiting on certain details, but I'm PUMPED to be able to say that the record and sleeves are being made right NOW, as we speak. So we're talking only weeks away from it being out and in yr loving hands. I mean if you love pefect records.
Moving along swiftly on the 7" split (AF005). PENS, Dum Dum Girls, Crocodiles and Graffiti Island. All the music is in and art is done. Actually art is pretty sick and was done by Amelia of PENS. Check it out:
This should be out soon after the Ye Olde Maids record and will be pressed in an edition of 1000.
Internet Forever 7" single and Dum Dum Girls full length cassette will be AF006 & AF007. PUMPED. A lot more in the works and I plan on keeping busy and putting these out faster and faster throughout the year and beyond. Release dates to be posted very soon.
Lastly there's a major fun announcement to make. Dates are being finalized as we speak for a tour to promote/celebrate the 4 way split 7". Crocodiles, PENS and Graffiti Island are touring the west coast from roughly August 17 to September 2. The exact dates should be announced soon. How exciting is that?? I can't WAIT.
