It has been less than a day since we made our demo available for listening on the internet, and already the support has been overwhelming. We have all put a lot of time and energy into this band, and we're excited about it, but i don't think any of us expected the response we have gotten so far. For me, to know that others can relate to and enjoy our expressions of indignation is the only affirmation i need to know that this is worth doing. There is also a select group of people whose support deserves much more praise than can be put into words, let alone this blog. They know who they are, and so do we.
So, i figure i should let everyone in on some of the plans we have for the near future. Our demo now recorded, we're going to be putting together a d.i.y. packaged demo with a lyric/explanation booklet in the next couple weeks. We'll do a fairly small run of those, have a release show for it, and hopefully get going on some more shows in the area. We're also looking to do a short west coast tour sometime this winter, but that is still in the works.
Again, thank you to everyone who has been supportive so far. Long live the vegan straightedge.
andy and abandon.

so after a few months of being around, we are making our internet debut. not all of us were exactly ecstatic to jump into the vast and nonsensical ocean that is the internet, but the good does outweigh the bad, and we want people to hear our music. consequently, we now have a myspace page (myspace.com/abandonxvx) with our recently recorded 3 song demo posted on it, as well as this blog account which we will use to update everyone on what's going on with us, in a slightly more intimate fashion than we would on myspace. check back, please.
