so i guess we have kept ourselves buried and sunken in a hole again; maybe not so stellar in the social outer realm; but obviously necessary. some things are hard to swallow. it’s been some difficult and confusing times since we returned from tour last November. winter froze in a denser ice than usual and killed everything this year; paving its future furrowed paths.

well then, we have a lot to let out into the world. where to begin when one stays quiet and mute for so long?……

GENERAL LIST:

1. we will be touring this summer; full U.S. 6 week tour; yes, again; and yes yes, we are goddam crazy in the heads; JULY 8th – AUGUST 16th. and yes yes yes, we yearn to see yer beautiful, inspiring faces again. we so need it; and secretly hope you do just the same.

2. we will be releasing a new album this summer, officially july 5th; vinyl L.P. of 6 songs; yes, again; titled LUNIC DRIFTWOOD: REMNANTS & REMIXES OF MOONDRIFTS. it consists of 3 songs leftover from the MOONDRIFTS studio sessions and 3 remixes of songs from MOONDRIFTS. this will be released by the BLUE SKY WRITINGS label outta Phoenix, AZ. thank u stupidly matt. and digitally thru Mecca Lecca (thank u jonny) and us at our website ghastlycitysleep.com ””’ please support directly.

3. we will be touring with yet another drummer this round; YES, again; his name is Evan Mitchell; this is, obviously, an intensely sad and brilliantly uplifting thing simultaneously; such is life. pat and ryan>>>> i miss the hell out of both of you! /// evan>>>> you are beautiful and thank you.

4. please, please come out. who knows in this fragile world when or where or if there will ever be a next time. and i mean it, no matter how dark or down that could come across.

5. we appreciate all the endearing help we have received thus far in booking this beast… i will post below the tour dates and towns. we still have about 2 weeks worth of shows to pull together; not shabby for a bunch ah lil-skinny-idiots on their own in this vicious world.  so, any help on these hole-y dates wins you sweetcakes, drinks, laughs, touches, or whatever yer dumb lil hearts desire outta love.
