Hi friends, fans, and foes! Yes, I subscribe some foes to my mailing list simply to irritate them! The rest of you may unsubscribe simply by replying with "unsubscribe" in the subject.
So, hope all is well with everyone, I'm writing to announce a short SE tour that I'll be starting on Sunday in Carrboro, NC and which will see me all the way through to Orlando, FL in 10 short days. Full tour schedule below!
Before getting to that, I'd like to take the opportunity to reflect on 2011, which was a great year for Horaflora; I went on a total of about a month of touring (not including upcoming) to some new places that I hadn't been to or played before (Seattle, Portland, Olympia, DC) and some spots that I hadn't been to since the bike tour of 2008 (Philly, Providence, Boston, and NYC).... In addition to all of that, I played 2 incredible festivals: Savage Weekend in Chapel Hill, and We Are Guest Talk Free, $10 in Boston!
Much of the touring was to celebrate and promote the several new releases of mine that came out this year: a split 7" record with Bromp Treb SoundSystem on Yeay! Tapes, a new cassette on Nefarious Activities that's so new I haven't sold a single one yet, and a very short (5min total) split cassette with Julia Mazawa on Ratskin Records.
I was hoping to be able to announce a new full length LP, my first non-split vinyl release, on Crazy Iris Records, and may have copies available on tour, but it's all up to the post office now! The new album is entitled "Craterellus Cornucopiodes" and features a slightly different mix of THIS net release on Install records, as well as a new studio work that mimics and reflects the A side but with completely different instrumentation and recording techniques, stay tuned for an official release announcement soon!
