Thursday, August 25, 2011
is it bad that i’m preemptively missing summer before it’s even over?!? it’s been a good one for us here at aeg.
secondly, we’ve had a chance to play with and open for some amazing artists including, LITTLE FEAT, DWIGHT YOAKAM, LOS LOBOS, RYAN MONTBLEAU, ZACH DEPUTY, THE ALTERNATE ROUTES, and MAX CREEK, to name a few… got some good ones comin up as well! (JJ GREY AND MOFRO, AVETT BROTHERS, EDWIN MCCAIN, RUSTED ROOT!)
in between touring we’ve also had a little time to spend on our own. as I type this, rob is up in a cabin on a lake in Canada. josh has been spending some good time with his wife and daughters in maine. turtle recently got to see his daughter perform as one of the orphans in “annie” through a rhode island community theatre company that he helped start when he was younger! our new drummer alex, has been scampering back and fourth from new jersey and pennsylvania where he’s been seeing family and friends. and yes, i have not only got myself up into the mountains for some hiking and camping, but also managed to sneak in some good time hangin with my fam on cape cod. a pretty frickin good summer so far…
in addition, we’ve managed to get into the studio to work on our two upcoming albums!! we’ve just listened for the first time to the final (yes final!!) version of “RAGTOP ANGEL”, slated to be officially released to the world on November 11th at a party we’re hosting here in Boston. This is the album we’ve been working on with producer aaron Johnson of the Fray. almost exactly 1 year ago we released the first 3 tracks from this album, (takin off, miss hallelujah, and soldier). well good people, it’s time we got you the rest! can’t wait for you to hear it!!
