To the mighty Swarm,

hello all, hope everyone had a nice easter. just wanted to send a quick newsletter to tell you about our summer gigging schedule and other stuff.

we're currently writing and recording our new album to be out sooner than later. things are really coming along well and we are very excited for the new tunes. because we're so busy writing we will not be doing any extensive, country-wide touring this summer, but instead will mostly be playing in the midwest area and, naturally, in omaha and lincoln. upon completion of the album we'll be heading around the country again which we're always looking forward to.

the album currently has 10 out of 20 songs completed. there are about 6 to 8 more that are nearly close to done and most assuredly there will be at least a couple more that arise in the meantime. some of the titles of the songs are "I want my money back," "The queen is coming," "Someday," "In a box, on the floor," "Nobody's perfect," "Owe it to you," and others.

we may put a couple rough versions of new songs on the website but we're still debating that. we have a whole host of dates below so check 'em out and we hope to see you at a show. spread you wings and fly,
