When our bestest chip buddies Awkward Terrible were in town last year for our fantastic show with Bit Shifter at the DNA lounge, we spent a couple days in the studio tracking four songs for what was originally planned as a split EP. What has evolved instead is a monster of a four-track collaborative EP, with all the members of each band playing on every song. The new EP is called Horchata, and will be available on January 20th to the whole world.
We can’t think of a better way to start the year than to share these new tunes with you, and we’re doing it in a big way. Awkward Terrible is coming to the SF bay yet again to share the stage. And when we say “share the stage”, we mean it. The show will feature not only sets from both bands, but a combined set with all four of us onstage, playing all the material from Horchata live together. Chaos will ensue. Hearts will be broken. Worlds will crumble.
See us play the show at The Blank Club in San Jose with our local chip favorite crashfaster on Wednesday, January 18th, where we’ll be selling advance copies of Horchata as download codes. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for more information and updates about Horchata.

@ The Blank Club, San Jose FREE Show! 21+ only RSVP on Facebook
We’re currently on lock-down at monobomb studio with crashfaster working on the final details of our debut EP, and then we’re sending it off to get mastered tonight (or really, really early tomorrow). Then we’re kicking off our Quest Coast tour! Surprisingly we’re not tired of each other yet…
Our first stop is June 9 at Meltdown Comics in Los Angeles. We’re also going on The Video Game Music Show the next evening while we’re still down in SoCal. We also finally confirmed our Seattle venue! Check us out at Pink Gorilla June 24 in Seattle’s University District! For full tour details, check out our Shows page.
That’s about it. We’ll update our website as the tour progresses. I asked Matt if he had anything to add to this post. He said, “whatever.”
If you’re in the area, make sure you don’t miss this FREE show! crashfaster will take the stage at 9:30 p.m. and we’ll be on at 10 p.m.! We’ll be selling T-shirts, stickers, and buttons. For those wondering about the debut EP, it’s in great shape, and the immensely talented crashfaster has been putting in the hours in helping record and mix this EP into a rocking lo-fi masterpiece, and it will be ready in just a few weeks. Make sure to sign up for our mailing list on the right column of this site for updates!
Thanks to some familiar faces from our last (first) show for coming out! And thanks to all the new fans we met at Maker Faire who made their way onto our Facebook Fan Page and Twitter. If you haven’t already, be sure to check it out!
We still have a few things on the agenda before we kick off our Quest Coast Tour 2011 with crashfaster. We got a few more days in the studio finishing up our long-awaited debut EP and finalizing all the little details. We also have one more show coming up!
Friday, June 3 we’ll be performing at SubZERO Festival. It’s a street festival in San Jose, CA in the city’s SoFA District. If you’re in the Bay Area and want to catch us one last time before we leave, make sure you head on over! Did we mention it was free? More details can be found at http://www.subzerofestival.com/ or our Shows page.
