Death Takes a Holiday

Posted on October 12th, 2008 by Mike

We held off announcing the release of our new CD for quite a long time for no really good reason, except maybe a general feeling that there’s many a slip ‘twixt the cup and the lip, and the best-laid schemes o’ mice an’ men gang aft agley.  We waited until we had a definite release date, all the music and grpahics in the hands of the label, the manufacturing schedule all set, all that.  Everything was set in stone, or maybe welded up in high-grade steel, great, time to let le chat out of le sac.  September 28 for sure. 

Oops.  Seems Alternative Tentacles got caught out when their usual CD pressing outfit closed down.  They had to take their schedule apart and reassemble it, and the new release date for “Death Was Too Kind” is November 11.  For sure.  Really.  No kidding.  You can take that to the bank, which will probably be out of business by the time you get there.

Stay tuned for further updates.

    Subhumans fans might be interested – I interviewed Gerry about, among other things, his voting advice for Tuesday’s election. Check it out here:


  2. Fantastic! All new material???

    I`ll keep checking for a Calgary show soon?

    How long do I gotta wait for the vinyl?

  3. Uh, guys: I don’t know if someone at A/T can get on it, but the bootleg of your EP and early singles has surfaced again and is all over eBay, soon to be in direct competition with the legit release. There are about five sellers; this is one of them. I’d suggest dropping each a note asking them not to sell this:
