This was our first time at Bogart's, and I must say that I was happy not to be at 21st Century Theater. Don't get me wrong; we had some good show in that venue, e.g., Halloween 2006, but overall, the set up in that room is not ideal. A weak sound system and small stage usually don't make for great shows. Anyhow, we had a great turn out at Bogart's. It seems we've had a lot of Bonnaroo people, which always seems to add to the excitement of the event.
After the shows, I've been trying to talk to people as much as possible, and some of the same questions keep coming up, namely: when is the new record coming out? what's the next single? are you coming back to my city soon?
First priority has been to figure out our next single. It actually has not been decided as of yet. I would like to get your feedback on this issue; it seems like the top contenders have been "Control" and "Noticed." (By the way, it has recently come to my attention in some of these after-show talks that there is some confusion on what's already been a "single;" in spite of what you may find on the internet, technically all our songs off the debut album [minus "Typical"] are single contenders because none of our songs were ever officially released before "Typical." If songs popped up on radio here and there, asides from "Chaos," it had nothing to do with us and was during all of the lawsuit commotion. Any songs that blipped on any charts before "Typical" are inconsequential and should be disregarded). Therefore, check out the poll on the side column to vote between "Control" or "Noticed."
Regarding the second record, we should start recording after this tour, but our plans constantly change; so, who knows when we'll exactly be in the studio. We have a lot of under-developed ideas that we are excited about, and hopefully, soon they will go through the full song writing process.
As far as coming back to your city, it is highly likely that we will be back. This is our fourth or fifth time back to most of the cities on the this tour. I'm sure that theme will continue in the Mute Math book of life.
Remember to vote!
