They are also slated to go to LA to record January 10th I believe with Chris Fudurich (Rx Bandits, Finch, Allister, and Nada Surf, and yes...Rory)
They have also set a release date for the album (as of yet untitled) of April 12, 2005.
There is also a new (to my knowledge) song on their purevolume page called "Arrive like a theif" and it's downloadable so you can add it to your (insert MP3 player here) that you got for (insert holiday here)
I think thats all for now. They have just about 40,000 plays on Purevolume and is sure to rise heavily while being on the front page.
