I feel like we can finally rest....

People of Earth - pick up your ears and listen to me!

Hi, thanks.

The record release show for 0pen The Sky is upon us. 11/11 is this Monday. We have been fanning the flames of fire for months now. The coals are hot and the bottoms of our feet are scorched. The smoke no longer makes us caught and thick clouds become our home. The mighty dragon has awakened and the.... something something something.

It's hard to be dramatic when all you really want to do is have a good time. We can leave that business to Nick Cave or Tom Waits.

The band started recording the album exactly one year ago. Now it's an object you can love and hold, suitable for framing. The LP, courtesy of Beyond Beyond Is Beyond records, is available in all Chicago record stores, nation-wide, internationally, and on the internet. There are a ton of options for you to get it. But it really only means something to us if you pry it from our hands in person.

Here's the info-
Special guests Lovely Little Girls and Ludus Lovestyle
11/11 9 pm Empty Bottle 1035 N. Western Ave Chicago, IL.
RSVP here.

In the news...
Velcro and the boys will be featured on ABC 7 Chicago this Sunday.
Karen Meyer paid a visit to Frogg Mountain to talk to Velcro and witness some live jammin' in the studio.
It airs during the 8 am CST broadcast on channel 7.1.

Velcro had a great conversation with ChicagoMusic.org this week.
Read the interview here.

Read a preview of Monday's show courtesy of Midwest Action here!

See you at the show!
