News December 9th 2009

A few things to announce.
First off, A thank you to all that purchased or downloaded our most recent album "Under the Overpass of America". We are proud of that record and those songs, recording it ourselves really opened the door to create and record better and more frequent albums. If you don't have "Overpass" yet, what are you waiting for, go buy it.

With that said, we are releasing a new EP January 23rd with a show at POPS. The EP is a remix album, a couple of real cool cats called PERSON-X took 4 "Under the Overpass" tracks and whipped out some very interesting arrangements. These things are from another planet. Those 4 tracks along with 2 more full on Final Drive tracks will make up the CD. We'll release the track info soon as it gets all confirmed, but in the meantime check out the cover art, HERE.

Currently writing a new record, hoping to release in the spring, gonna be different, can't wait.

Taking donations online to put a new engine in our van, check out the link HERE, and get these broke hoes on the road.

New Hoodies possibly for our next show January 23rd as well.



Played a few shows, worked on back catalog with new drummer, booked a few more shows.......worked on details for a "remix" album (wtf), yes a remix album or ep I guess you'd say. Our friends in PERSON-X blasted out a killer remix of "the Confession" and we just can not help absolutely needing to hear more. So hopefully we can get this thing out before the end of Aug, details will come soon.

The battle is at POPS JULY 25TH for a spot on POINTFEST in August. This is a must for us, but to win we need EVERYONES help.
Request us on 1057THEPOINT send them emails, text messages whatever, most importantly BUY A TICKET FROM US! AND GO TO THE SHOW! JULY 25th at POPS.
These things are "popularity contests" I hate to say. So, the more of
YOU we have there, the better our chances. And the better the show is
for everyone!


Our Little Rock Trip

Things could have definitely been worse. I'll just start by saying that. Luck shined on us Thursday afternoon with Chris securing us our new touring van, but things quickly went south from there. Friday was a rush like Friday generally are for us, while we did get a great deal on our new van, it just wasn't road ready. Ball Joints, Brakes, Fuzes, were all very badly needed things and we just didn't have time to fix them before we left for Little Rock.  We did our Hot Topic in store at the St.Louis Mills Mall and decided to leave first thing on Saturday morning with the "SAFE" vehicle, my 2004 ford explorer. (which was just serviced with a multi point inspection from Marshall Ford in O'fallon).

A little late hitting the road but we were making great time. And then.....
Transmission seals blows out about 30 minutes south of Sikeston MO. So you ask "why not just add more transmission fluid and keep on going?" well, for some reason the experts at FORD decided NOT to put a transmission dipstick and no way to refill tranny fluid unless you, get this now, drain the fluid from the tank and using a special tool "shoot" the fluid back in. Basically like filling a bottle up only upside down.  Yeah great huh! Thats american craftsmen ship at it's best, no way to check how much fluid you lost no way to refill, and NO shops open on Saturday.

So with fingers crossed we headed back home, stopped for steaks at Texas roadhouse and made it home probably grinding all the gears in the tranny.

Fucking rock n roll!
