We've been holed up in our studio and are nearly finished recording our
second of three EPs titled "See No Evil". It will have at least 7 songs
on it and may well turn into a full album by the time we're done. We're
hoping to have a release date set for early spring of '05 (possibly
sooner) and will be in touch regarding a CD party release date.

Playing Dale Earnhardt Jr's birthday party was an incredible time and
we want to thank our sponsor, Budweiser, and the 2500 strong that came
out to the show for making it such a great success.

Thanks to our friend Jen Pearson, we now have an online merchandise
store to help you (and all your friends and family) get outfitted with
the latest and greatest GTO gear... just in time for Christmas!

Hope to see everyone out at the upcoming holiday shows!

All our best and thank you for your continued support.
