Here's what I know: After Bumbershoot they're doing a West Coast tour with Centro-matic, starting in Arizona somewhere and ending in Boise, with a Tuesday show at the Tractor Tavern in Seattle around the 23rd of Sept. Then the first week or so of October they're going out with DCFC through the mid-w...

It's unclear whether he means that he considers unsalted butter his punishment, or that she is trying to punish him with unsalted butter and he's wondering, "what the fuck?"

The deal with the European dates is this: John and Sean are going over in mid-August to do a promo tour. Just the two of them, although they're playing with their friends from Centro-matic so there's been a suggestion of some guesting between the two bands. The whole Long Winters band is going over ...

Actually, Sean is working on some new material of his own, from what I understand.

I imagine he'll tell us more about what he's doing in the fullness of time.

You know, Ken Stringfellow co-produced the new record, and he's in REM. So it's not like they got David Bowie or anything.

Try Virgin. Also, at those indie stores it always helps to make a customer request, if you have the time.

Sean has been using two keyboards: a 70's Rhoads piano with a distortion box, which is the same kind of piano they used in Harvey Danger, and an 80's Roland synthesizer called a Juno-106 that belongs to John. But they've been talking about simplifying that and only using one keyboard, mostly because...

Happily I have this to report: The Long Winters have just in the last month secured a Spanish record label, called Houston Party, and a Dutch label, called Munich Records, which between them will be releasing the new record throughout Europe in August. As a result the band is now planning a European...

I'm getting the feeling that John is a little upset that no one wants to see him naked. I, for one, also do not want to see him naked. And I say that as a fan.

My understanding from the band is that each set will be different and they'll all be about 30 mins.

I think the cheerfulness of the Long Winter's first record can best be appreciated if you are someone who just got divorced and are livng in an old house which is filled with ghosts.

As far as I know the band still intends to play the show. John says they'll do a "Clinic thing".

The staff at Sonic Boom is aware of the issue. They say that if you show a receipt from the week before it will work. If you buy the record from the Barsuk web site it's another matter but I'm guessing that if you attend all three shows you should be able to get a tee-shirt without too much suffering.

All these comments are very helpful and many of the ideas are already in the works. When we launch the site we'll be looking for feedback again. I think that the more media from different sources we have to work with, the more interesting the site will be.

Since the web site hasn't officially launched yet, the message board has only been up in this Beta-test version to iron out the kinks before the record comes out. Most of the people who are discussing the record were either sent the record by Barsuk because of some pre-existing relationship with the...

The Street Teams are for all the cities that the Long Winters are coming to on tour, and if you live in a city that is not presently on a Long Winters tour routing and still want to help out spreading the word I'm sure that Emily @Barsuk.com would send you some posters to put up at your local record...

As far as I know no one in the band has ever written tabulature for any song. If anyone has done the TAB on any Long Winters' music they would be welcome to post it here. John has indicated he would correct any TAB that someone attempted. And if there's enough demand... I know many of the new songs ...
