don't be afraid, the clown's afraid too

Much excitement afoot here. To recap:

As promised, A-lister Tony Hoffer adroitly mixed our record over a couple of weeks last month. We were fortunate enough to conclude our year-long tour of LA's most historically significant studios at Ocean Way (formerly United), where Mr. Hoffer did his thing. The results of said thing were/are, y'know, transformational. Which is what tends to happen when a record gets mixed. Look for our picture in an upcoming issue of Mix magazine.

Then the golden platter was tossed down the hall to Ocean Way's in-house mastering guru Dr. Alan Yoshida, who masterfully (ahem) did his thing last week. Loose ends get tied up this week.

And of course, the record will be out this summer, more or less.

Then there's upcoming shows, promotional appearances, etc.:
