When I moved from the suburbs to my new place in the city I found about 9 cassette tapes worth of songs I was working on in 05/06 for the album that was supposed to come after HTGOA. Yes, cassette tapes... maybe I was trying to be ironic. I've only been able to get through half a tape but it's crazy to listen to what I was thinking/feeling a decade ago!! I played the first song on the tape for Adam, he loved it and so did Jason and Ryan so it ended up as song 3 for these writing sessions!! Let's see what other jams I'm going to find in the next couple of weeks!!
So, my June is filled with shows, writing, rehearsing and recording - I'm exhausted all the time but loving it! It's what I was born to do! After this grueling month, it looks like I'm going to have a pretty relaxed and awesome July. Amongst many other fun events, like Punk Rock Lakehouse and playing Q Bar in Darien - July 26th SHFC plays with the Gin Blossoms at Taste of Lincoln and the day after Ill be lounging on a Lazy River drinking, catching some sun and working on a much needed tan!! Then it's back to grind in August - finishing up the LBC EP and getting in shape for my September vacation! Loving life!
It's all finally happening!! Two years in the making! My new(ish) band, Super Happy Fun Club is releasing our sophomore record - "All Funned Up"!!! Needless to say I am extremely excited about it - it's the best pop rock record I've been a part of since Throwing the Game. Thematically/lyrically I was able to get out a lot of the emotional hardships I was carrying around from 2012. It was great being able to vent about Joe passing away and how hard my divorce was. I hope people are going to be able to listen to this album as a whole - relate to the conflict, pump their fists to the anthemic choruses...
