So Stephen [Pope], Billy [Hayes] and I will be playing our third show in the US together tomorrow night at the High Tone in Memphis. We are all very excited since they let us smoke weed in their kitchen. We also finished recording a record in Oxford, Mississippi and are currently mixing it. Sounds caraaazaaaaaayyy and will be out this summer.
