Casey McPherson's main group when he's not doing Flying Colors. I got into them last year, at times, they reminded me of among others, Josh Rouse. Ironically, this album is coming out the same date, March 19th, as the new Josh Rouse LP.

I'd be up for seeing them live on this tour, but....the girlfriend's bday is Saturday the 4th and I'm already seeing Steven Wilson that night. It's unbelievable how every god damn show has to fall between late March and early May, lol. Impressive they are playing The Varsity. If I don't make it, hopefully they will do another tour this year. I suppose how good this new album is may dictate how important it is for me to see them live. I do like a lot of their other album New Morning, but I hardly LOVE it do death or anything.
