shoes of risk

hey CHUMs,

thought i would check in with you’s since there has been a bunch of stuff going down. but firstly, good hustle on wednesday night. i haven’t LARPed like that in a while.

“boots of danger” is now up on our myspace, and presumably it’s also streaming on a bunch of websites.

scroll down for more info on the song: i wrote a blurb about it for some press stuff and it appears courtesy of Ctrl+C/Ctrl+V.

One time with a friend we we’re laughing at putting song lyrics into an internet translator. You put them from English to Japanese and then back again and all the second-hand syntax yields hilarity. The words “Boots of Danger” came from this then we put the lyrics of Nature of the Experiment in and that phrase popped up in there. So really the title came first and then the song came in pieces later. The chorus bit came in summer ’08 in my parents
basement (where many choruses have come from). Six months later I came
up with the verse for it so I decided to try and demo it in NYC to see
if I couldn’t make something of it. That’s when the “Ooo’s” came, so
it’s always had sort of a disjointed feeling to me but I think we did
a good job of making it flow when we finally got it recorded. It also features samples from a talking Pregnant Redneck Barbie Doll at the end under the bass and Greg’s half-time beat. “Pour me a double..I’m drinkin’ fer two…..”. It’s in there.

there you have it.

    Ohmuhgawd.

    Seriously. Keep the songs coming! I am LOVING the new sound, guys! The new album comes out three days before you play Bonnaroo, and I am going to promise you that I’ll have all the lyrics memorized to the new album. See you there, and then at the St. Louis show with Passion Pit! Ahhhhhh
