It’s been quite awhile since we’ve stepped into the rays. The light has come close a few times but we’ve escaped. Inactivity on the Internet does not reflect on an inactive life. We have been active: writing new songs, re-working old songs, confronting new sounds, & routing new structure. We have also put a lot of thought into the presentation of our last batch of recorded material, which was tracked in November of 2012. We’ve decided to forgo any physical route at this point. So, the album, entitled Compassion Fatigue, is now available for download/streaming on our Bandcamp page at www.degollado.bandcamp.com. As of now this will be the only outlet for its release. We do plan to play live in 2014, possibly sooner rather than later, if the options arise. We are taking it as it comes & putting our focus on more material at this point. For now, head over to www.degollado.bandcamp.com and have a listen to Compassion Fatigue!
Our debut EP, Dark Of The Day, can now be streamed and/or downloaded in its entirety on the new Founding Father Records Bandcamp page. Check it out at www.foundingfatherrecords.bandcamp.com.
We’re still hunkered down and working on a wide variety of new material which will hopefully span a couple of new releases in the near future.
Our 2 month internal hiatus has come to an end and we’re back to wielding the axe. We currently have no shows scheduled and we probably won’t for the immediate future. We’ll be focusing on writing more new music as well as getting the recently recorded full length ready for release. More info. on all things life in due time.
We will be taking a brief break during May and June. There’s really no such thing as rest; however, we will be letting the dust subside for a minute or two. We are still working on a plan for the full length album. We hope to have more solidified details on a release schedule come summer. We also plan to get back on the road come summer/fall.

Next Friday, 4/26, we’ll be in Silver Spring, MD at Pyramid Atlantic. Somebody said they were going to “open up the pit.”
We’ll be in Winchester, VA tomorrow night with another cohort of the mountains, Zack Kouns. Social info. below.
Our upcoming full length is getting closer and closer to being complete. The music, or lack thereof, has been speared. Now, it’s on to visuals. We will be playing 2 shows in April and 1 show in early May and then we will be taking a very brief break until mid-June. We hope to have a more definite word on a release schedule by early summer. We will also jump back on the road at some point and play these songs that exist behind doors. A vague existence? Highly.
Our next show will be with the Zack Kouns in Winchester, VA. Social awareness here: http://www.facebook.com/events/502047993164699/
Check out an interview with Christopher on his very own music blog. Wait….what?
Our next show will be on Saturday, April 13th in Winchester, VA at Dharma Studio with Zack Kouns. We most likely won’t do yoga.
Tonight’s show at The Velvet Lounge in Washington, DC has been postponed until May 2nd. More info. regarding the rescheduled date will be posted within the year. Apparently, the power company in The District will be doing routine maintenance and will be cutting the power to The Velvet Lounge tonight.
Next up: 3|12|13 at The Velvet Lounge in Washington, DC.

Our brief 3 show February run with Darsombra was a blast. Good shows all around. We’ll be doing more shows with those fine folks in the future. Check them out on the Tumblr at www.darsombra.tumblr.com.
We’d like to thank Angus Carter for doing visuals at the 2/26 show in Harrisonburg, VA. An unexpected/impromptu experiment turned out very cool. We’ll have some pictures from that set posted very soon. We hope to have more live visuals down the pipeline as well.
Our next show will be on March 12th at the Velvet Lounge in Washington, DC with Curse, Stress Orphan, & a collaboration featuring Tag Cloud, Guillermo Pizarro, and Jeff Surak. Myspace Prevent page here: http://www.facebook.com/events/128872077281938/
