Hey good people. We’ve been busy, so we apologize for the lack of activity in the news dept. Short but sweet: we’re playing a show with Giants Chair (yes, THE Giants Chair), not to mention Ex Acrobat and Haunted Heads. The date is Friday, Sept 22nd at the Triple Rock, so be sure not to miss out. Also, we will soon be announcing details re: our 20th anniversary show at the Lyndale VFW on Dec 9th, so stay tuned about that. Also…we’re hitting the studio this month to record our first full-length since Fortress with the one and only Adam Tucker of Signaturetone Recording; we expect you’ll be pleased with the results. Keep in touch and we’ll try to do the same. Thanks always, friends!

I joined this band in August of 1997, and we’re still on the journey. I couldn’t ever have hoped for more profound, talented, creative, and supportive friends and musical collaborators than Tom, Ben, and Brian, and I wish them - and you - a happy two thousand oh seventeen. Really excited to share the new songs with y’all this year. More soon…

We must have panicked when we realized the days were getting shorter again, cuz all of a sudden we started booking like crazy and now have a ton of great shows coming up! Highlights include Minneapolis appearances by far-flung heroes of ours Helms Alee (Seattle, WA), The Bronzed Chorus (Greensboro, NC), and Cinemechanica (Athens, GA). Not all on the same night, of course, but you can discover all of the excellent details for yourself by visiting the 'shows' page. You'll also notice that we'll be making a couple of quick trips to Chicago and Madison in the next few months. And uh...dare I mention that there have been whispers about some European dates in 2017? Well, then.

What about some new material, you ask? Better get yourself to a show to find out. We just may have a surprise or two in our cache...

We realize it’s been a bit quiet on the S-E front lately, and for a number of reasons: we’ve been writing new material, Ben has recently become a father, Tom has been busy winning awards for his delicious home brew, I’ve been focusing much of my energy on getting Technician’s debut record finished and sent to press, etc…but don’t you forget about us.  We’re getting back down to business this fall.  Tom and Ben got together with the good people at Day Block Brewing to design a recipe for a signature ale which we’ll be celebrating (read: drinking) at the brewery in downtown Minneapolis on 10/23 - we’ll also be playing some music for you that night.  AND - you’ve got another opportunity to catch us before the Day Block show, as we’ll be playing with our friends Fury Things at Icehouse on Friday, 10/2.  Come hang out with us and get your Rocktober double dose of Self-Ev - we look forward to seeing you!
