so matt hearn from white tiger owns this rad bar in wilmington called reggie's 42nd street tavern. we've been friends for a long time, he's a great dude and one of my favorite songwriters. we had the bright idea to do a split. it was originally going to be a 12" 45RPM vinyl with all this cool packaging and extra goodies and we were going to tour in support of it and all that. what we didn't consider was just how fucking long it would take to get our bands on the ball enough to record, mix, master, and manufacture. about six months after the conception of the split, we were all broke, exhausted, and far removed from the material we laid down. so we didn't blow our wad on vinyl, instead pressed a couple hundred cds, sold pretty much all of them, and that was that.
the white tiger side is an excellent batch of songs. our side ain't no slouch either. we've discussed doing another one in the future. don't hold your breath.
