Ghosts & Liars
|||||Beach House: "Tokyo Witch"||]|
Is anyone else out there as excited as I am at the prospect of wearing a stupid amount of scarves, sweaters and big coats for the next five months? I think I've been ready since May to get back to the cold weather and dreariness that I cherish and adore. I realize that the temperature doesn't drop in all places as drastically as it does here in Washington this time of year, so for those of you in warm weather climates, please forgive the ridiculous nature of my question.
But let's move on, because finally, we've got some big news:
A Home for Ghosts & Liars!
This past week, it was made official that the wonderful people at SideCho Records, who released the last Some By Sea record, will also be releasing the first record from your friends here in Ghosts & Liars. Here is what SideCho had to say in their press release:
"SideCho Records is proud to announce their recent signing of Ghosts & Liars. Ghosts & Liars features Chris Du Bray and Rachel Bowman, both of who are already familiar with the label. SideCho Records was home to Chris and Rachel's former band, Some By Sea, and the new music will be a pleasant surprise for fans of the now-defunct band. Ghosts & Liars will be playing this year's SideCho Records CMJ Showcase that is to take place at Arlene's Grocery (95 Stanton St., NYC) on November 1. The debut album will follow in Spring 2007."
Shows? Wait, Wait, Wait...Shows?
Yes! Some of you might have noticed that our first show will be taking place in New York City at this year's CMJ Music Marathon. It might seem weird to perform our first show three thousand miles away from home and welllllllll...we think it's a little weird and possibly frightening as well, but it should be a lot of fun. For those of you in New York, we hope that you will come out and see us along with all of the other great SideCho artists performing with us.
However, we will be coming back and doing our first local show at our home base in Tacoma, WA on December 1st, so whatever you have planned for that day, cancel it, reschedule it and come spend an evening with us.
We might have a couple more shows in the works before the end of 2006 and we will let you know as soon as all the details are set. As always, make sure to check back on the MySpace for all of the show updates.
This week, we uploaded a couple of new photos for you to enjoy. For some reason, both feature me on a bed, so I will allow you to interpret that however you would like to, but make sure you stop by and leave a fresh comment.
I'm fairly certain we've reached the conclusion of this performance of Ghosts & Liars news. I truly hope that you will come back and visit often. Have an excellent week.
