It has always been our intention to record and release our songs for you, our loyal fans. Because what's the point in being in a band if you can't at least prove to your parents that all those years of tuneless noodlings finally paid off?
As a group we battled through breakups, health problems and financial insecurity to make this E.P. a reality, and in early January we finally entered the studio, pouring all of those emotions into four absolutely amazing, mind blowingly perfect songs. We'd never been prouder*.
Unfortunately, 10 days before our planned release, Harry shocked us all by announcing they were quitting the band due to artistic differences, leaving two of our babies without any vocals. But instead of getting sad about it and scrapping our naive dreams of stardom, we instead swore a solemn blood oath to wreak vengeance upon this cruel, unfeeling world. Because when life hands you lemons, you don't make a sugary carbonated beverage to rot the teeth and souls of young children. No! You take those lemons and you squeeze those fuckers right back in life's eyes, and while life writhes around in pain clutching its now streaming ocular systems you kick it in the shins just for being a dick about it!
WE OFFER A HALF E.P., VEGANS AND VODKA, UNTO THEE AS TRIBUTE, OH DREAD LISTENER! SLAKE YOUR THIRST FOR NOW, FOR WE SHALL RISE AGAIN, STRONGER AND MORE POWERFUL THAN EVER!
THE END OF THIS YEAR WILL BRING YOU.... THE MY THERAPIST SAYS HOT DAMN ALBUM!!!!! IF YOU CAN'T TAKE THE HEAT, YOU SHOULD PROBABLY GET OUT OF THE SUN AND AND PUT ON A HAT
* Except for that time we rocked so hard the PA literally burst into flames. That was pretty cool.
