Eating a granola bar and listening to vocal passes on GRE(A)T DEPRESSION.
Sang 2 songs yesterday and will probably get to a 2nd today before we bid farewell to each other for X-MAS break.
Things are going really well. This song we are working on now was inspired by a Joe Strummer quote and its really interesting that we started on it the anniversary of Joe's death. But thats the amazing thing about his songs and message, they have all lasted longer than him. If we could all be so lucky.

I'll try and be less coy from now on, honestly, its hard to not be overindulgent.
I thought maybe if I would only divulge tiny bits of information, your own anticipation may grow as large as mine.
We've tracked 9 songs so far. It is quite nice to be on our own. The songs range in fervor, but sound more like Anti-Flag than even we expected. Pittsburgh has always had a greater influence on us than even we know. Making this record here has been really impactful on the songs. It's interesting to think about, Die For The Government, A New Kind of Army, The Terror State, all share the hallmark of being recorded in Pittsburgh. Well, it's interesting and important to us at least.
This is an important time in our political landscape.
There is much equality to fight and sing for.
There is much ignorance to fight and sing against.
We have not begun to fight...
Goodnight Hockeymom, Goodnight Joe Six Pack, Goodnight Otto Standard Consumer, Goodnight Otto Normalverbraucher.
Say goodnight to the old gaurd.
