BLACK SHEEP NEWS!

Official statement from the band:

“what have we been up to?

well the bands going through some changes. From the last album we’re going to have a different drummer (mostly), a different bassplayer and an added second guitarist, as well as plenty of instrumental dual drums jams. Brandon and Jackson are jamming on their own stuff though and Jackson’s assured me that its what this band would be doing if we hadnt (he’d call it “stopped wanting to write that stuff” techier/metal-ier?/proggressiv-ey? idk), so as soon as they get anything going we’ll let you know about it. I’m imagining a baby meshuggah with a lot of splash and mini china cymbals…haha, no j/k I’m sure its gonna be bomb stuff that I’m glad they can write…i look forward to it guys, even if i only talk to one of you

So what does that mean for this band?

well, me and scott are still in it, so whatever we brought to the table will be, but we’re also bringing our good ironically named friends, Andrew and Andrew into the band! or call em Drew and Dewey…i guess the name Andrews a no go?! But yea, Drew used to sing for this bands old band, and plays guitar for us now, and Dewey used to play bass in I Got Shot In The Face with me. Both are adding to the band exponentially and I cant wait for the brain hemorrhage im gonna get from trying to get both of these fucks to do anything nearing responsibility…no no, i kid, i do

also playing drums for us will most likely be the I Got Shot In The Face drummer and prominent “only Filipino friend in plenty peoples lives” Apie Santa Cruz!!!! He’s down to jam on Sunday, so I’m pretty sure itll work out. But make no mistake, fuck our old bands…new stuff will not sound like any of that mess

so we’re planning on recording our own full length (or EP if it ends up sucking) this winter in Los Angeles. We’ll all be home long enough (we live far apart) to have this band be our sole responsibility (for fucking sure!?)…next to all the other stuff…so thats the goal, to write and record an album by the end of january…we’ve got two songs fleshed out and we’re stoked like fuck for those

aw man, wanted to get away from all that text, anyways, this band is keepin on, new stuffs gonna be way different…but blah, i dont even want to set it up like that…just hey, honestly, we wrote i am god songs in like, March 07, and i dont know if you can do the math, but thats almost 2 years ago…im about to graduate college, i moved out, done some drugs, i dont know, im growing up, man, shits changin…i cant speak for scott but I know hes in a different place than he was then…what im saying is, that i feel no reason not to let those changes in perspective be reflected in our music…so thats whats happenin, for better or worse

we’ll obviously let you know when we’ve got any new shit goin on

till then listen to Yellow6 and anything related to Brian Wilson”
