Happy Holidays to all,

The holiday season is upon us once again and we hope everyone is doing well, filled with spirit and ready to rock 'n roll.

All is well on the recording front as we are about half-way through our recording project which is set to be released as a two-CD set sometime in the Spring of 2002. The first CD (the "A-sides") will include GTO's more rocking tunes as well as two music videos that can be played on your PC. The second disc (the "B-sides") will include a unique musical glimpse into GTO as well as a couple 'oldies-but-goodies' from days gone by. We're super pumped to get it out to all of you and get back out on the road touring.

To keep up with our tradition of releasing at least one project every year through the life of the band, GTO is putting out a 5-song limited edition preview (MP3-playable only) release titled "Green Album," this weekend. Only 250 have been made and all have been signed and numbered. We have no plans on selling them (our gift to you), so you're gonna have to be in the audience and have your hands out and ready to catch one when we throw 'em out during our holiday shows.

As for coming GTO shows:

  • Friday, December 21 at the Ranch Bowl, ALL AGES. Doors open at 7pm and show starts at 8pm. We're playing with Lucky Boys Confusion, The Dog and Everything, Jank 1000 and Smith Victor.
  • Tuesday, December 25, Christmas night, at the Music Box. 18 and over show with Man Down and Liquid Static.

Hope to see you out. Happy holidays to everyone and all our best.

Spread your wings and fly,
GTO
