Just waiting on the world to catch up to where we’re about to be.
Last night at Secret Stages in Birmingham was the debut of Wooden Wand and the Briarwood Virgins. It looked a little something like this:
The Briarwood Virgins came about when we recorded a Gum Creek Killers / Wooden Wand split 7” at Ol Elegante this past winter. It went so well that James Toth (street name Wooden Wand) was determined to come back and record a full-length with us. So in early April, we tracked a full-length and it’s really good (we can say this because most of the praise rests on the ever-brilliant Mr. Toth). The split will be out on Communicating Vessels in August, with the full-length available on LP directly from the band in September with a CD issue to follow in late 2011 on Fire records out of the UK.
We’ll also be playing the This is American Music showcase in Waverly, AL on June 11th and the Hopscotch festival in September, with plans for some autumn touring in the works as well.
World: look out.
