October 22, 2003- autumn is such a beautiful time of year up at Appalachian State University, too bad in a month it will be freezing cold with snow on the ground. oh well, i'll just have to enjoy it while it lasts.
hey, i've completed writing several new songs that have turned out very well. my newest one is titled Losing Control, i think y'all will like this one. it has a little more edge to it and stuff.
by the way, in case you have not heard, a little more than a month ago Jon Lambeth broke his wrist but thankfully its healing very fast and we're going to be able to have practice this weekend, since its fall break and we'll all be in charlotte.
we're starting to make plans for recording the album, its either going to be done during spring break or in may. we have not decided where we are going to record it, but its going to turn out excellent i promise you. as soon as we find out where and when we will record, i'll letcha know.
finally, we're making plans with Forgotten Brilliance to do a show in either late november or early december. Forgotten Brilliance is a really cool band, buy their demo if you have not already.
well i think thats it, have a great day! -jon barth
