Long Time, No Speak!

What's up everybody? Long time, no speak, but you are all aware of my aversion to typing by now. Had a great show last weekend in Houston at the zoo of all places, a sold out event for a great charity...nothing like playing for a bunch of animals (rim shot, please!).

We've been working a lot on writing new songs at a relaxed pace, and I'm happy to say we have written 4 or 5 keepers. One song, What The World Needs, has even found it's way to the set list, and seems to go over well everytime we play it. The tentative news is an EP will be out this Spring, and don't want to jump the gun, but we are very close to having a great label pick it up for distribution. There are no illusions about what this record will be, I'm mean for chrissakes people were up in arms about a free U2 record! But when you are in a band you do two things, play live and write music, and we feel very fortunate to be able to have a home to deliver new material to those who want it.

It's been an absolute joy writing and playing with Dean, Kristian, and Rod, and I'm constantly amazed at their talents as songwriters, musicians and singers...and people! Please checkout Kristian's other band Intergalactix, they are really starting to make some waves on the EDM scene, and SR fans may remember the homey Serg is also in that band.

News on this summer's Under The Sun Tour should be coming soon, as we have basically secure the lineup, and you are not going to want to miss this year (or any year for that matter!) That's it for now, my finger is getting tired, and as always thanks for all the love and support....it's is very much appreciated.

Mark, always great you are, from the 90's to today.

Even the beautiful Italy I want to give you my support . I've always loved the way you sing your being and carefree you.

So I'm doing me appreciate 8 year old son your great songs: I had to put it as a ringtone in my phone "every morning" and that to me is very good, it's a way to say thank you every time the phone rings I your beautiful music.

I'm not followers of any artist ever written to anyone but it is not a lover of writing / social, but I'll like to write you.

With a great affection I greet Enrico

Sup Mark?

Great post BRO! Stoked for the tour, any chance you'll be hitting up the LA area!?!!!1 You guys work so hard, just like a mean machine. Can't wait to hear the new tunes. Going to be wicked.

By the way, just saw you in Father's Day (the movie with Robin Williams and Billy Crystal) this morning and was pleasantly surprised. You played a great douchebag. Should have won an award for it bruther.

Keep it frosty!
