Seattle Loves AristeiA (and AristeiA loves Seattle)

One week ago today we played The Comet, one of Seattle's staples in the indie music scene, with our friends Hockey and had a great time. The people seemed really into what we were doing. We felt good. The audience felt good. It was good times all around. Plus we actually sold some merch. Nice. The guys from the first band, Division of Mars, were super nice (going as far as letting us borrow some equipment when ours was being "difficult"). Then later Hockey blew the power for part of the club (the power that allows people to play music). But after a while, it was fixed and the dance party that is a Hockey show continued.

And, as it turns out, we got a little write up in Sound on the Sound, a popular local Seattle music blog. You can read it here.

Album Art almost done!

Our good friend Anthony has been kind enough to take on the challenge of creating the artwork for our forthcoming record. he has sent a few through email and i must say they are quite impressive. i'm really excited about the way these turned out and can't wait to see the originals!

once again, the album will be called "How to Kill A King" running at 6 songs and 25 minutes. It will be available sometime in early September if all goes accordingly.

there will be more posted about this soon.

that image is my favorite so far.

we are making a 7"

So, I thought it might interest the people to know that a split 7" will be released in the not so distant future. It will be between Westfold and yours truly. The pictures are the center label now just imagine splattered colored vinyl around those labels. Sweet, right? You can hear Westfold's song on their myspace page right here (I know that I linked to them earlier in the post, but seriously you should check Westfold out).

ps. did you notice that the songs are the exact same length? weird huh?
