Sorry for the delays, folks. Waiting on final cover art for the Shithouse Opera to be released. In the meantime, Brian is busy working on mixes for the first of 2 new albums. It's slow going because each song is chock full of sound and he only has a few hours a week to work on it.

Happy Halloween. All 3 volumes of our unreleased archival release are now avaialbe both on bandcamp and various streaming sites.


Volume 3 collects all of the oddities and most experimental tracks. 


Volume 2 focuses more on the period around Fifteen to Tango and the Moustachio suite era


Volume 1 mostly focuses on the last batch of songs we recorded in 2008


Sometime in the 6 months, I'm hoping, we'll release the full Shithouse Opera. It's all ready to go. 


We're also making progress on two new concept albums. No telling when they'll be ready though.
