An update from Chris of Day At The Fair can be seen below.
Day At The Fair UpdateAlthough Day At The Fair disbanded, or broke up, went on "indefiniate hiatus" (as most bands call it these days) over a year ago, we still reserve the right to play a show every now and again. There was once a time when it was our careers, our baby, and our lifes. At this point, it's more or less a grave we all come to visit occasionally to put flowers on, not to celebrate it's death, but to remember how much fun we once had when it was alive.

The Track Record have parted ways with Drive-Thru/Rushmore Records. A message from the band can be read below.
Message"As of September 1st, we are no longer affiliated with Drive-Thru / Rushmore Records. The split is due to disagreements regarding the direction of the band. While we maintain good terms with the label, there is no more progress to be made in the relationship.

That being said, we will be taking October to record and self produce our debut full length at Omega Studios (Third Eye Blind, Ben Folds Five, Fiona Apple, Radiohead, Elliott Smith, the Wallflowers) in Rockville, MD. The record has been written for months and we are beyond excited to finally get into the studio....

It looks like Self Against City is in search of a drummer after all. The band sent out the following message.
MessageDRUMMERS!

We are currently seeking a hard-hitting, no non-sense maestro of percussion to join us on the beginning of a journey of marvelous proportions. You must have the ability to play to a click, be ready to tour immediately, be willing to match your drum sizes to the tonality of our new album, and most importantly, you must be completely and wholly in love with rock and roll. Auditions will be held in Sacramento, CA.

If you believe you are this person, or if you would like more information please email us at: drumsagainstcity@yahoo.com

Self Against City has left the following message on their myspace page in regards to member changes:

Although we do appreciate the support and interest that so many of you have shown, we are NOT looking for a drummer or a bassist. Our friend Hunter MacDonald, who you may have seen in your town while he was playing bass for JamisonParker or The Fire Escape, will be playing bass and the drums will now be pounded upon by our friend and fellow sacramento native, Kyle Pesely.

New songs will be up August 1st. see you all soon,
