4. [GOSSIP] ASIWYFA New Material & Own A Slice Of Math-Rock History

And So I Watch You From Afar have been recording new tracks this month ahead of their Autumn touring schedule: tracks include live favourites 'D Is For Django The Bastard' and 'S Is For Salamander'. Fighting With Wire have also been hard at work on album two - the bits that we've heard are MASSIVE! 4 Or 5 Magicians' debut 'Empty Derivative Pop Songs' is done and dusted with an October release scheduled. Ice, Sea Dead People's debut offering is currently being mastered in Chicago by Bob Weston. On the live front, This Ain't No Picnic will cross the water to London in October and Club:STA will expand to Belfast in September. Those wishing to own an authentic piece of math-rock history may be interested to know that John Calories is selling his guitar amp on eBay. Now if that isn't news - I DON'T KNOW WHAT IS.

Thanks for reading,
Andrew, Ash, Daniel, Brian & Charlene
