Hello, prog friends -

Still glowing from the wonderful show last Friday (playing with the wonderful Free Salamander Exhibit and Stolen Babies) I'm happy to announce some other goings-on here in miRthkon land.

1. We're busily toiling getting the next album done, to be released on AltrOck records!
2. We're gearing up to play the RIO festival in France and FreakShow ArtRock festival in Germany!
3. Items 1 and 2 are happening in tandem in September, and we're thus scraping together funds to get us (7 people and all our ridiculous gear) over the pond and celebrate this new CD while performing various wonderful shows to brand new audiences! We're going the kickstarter route, which is basically like pre-ordering our new record (or shopping for existing records, and then some) - here's the kickstarter link, containing Wally's fun video about all this stuff:

4. As well, we have most of the tour booked, and leads on many of the TBD dates, but hey if you think you have other great leads in noted regions, it's always good to have a back-up plan. Or maybe you know of wonderful places to sleep, eat, or take band photos along the way... Let me know! Here's the current itinerary:

9/14 - Milan, Italy w/ Yugen + CD RELEASE SHOW! venue TBD
9/15 - Italy/Southern France?
9/16 - Marseille, France @ Upercut
9/17 - Toulouse, France @ Amanita Muscaria w/ Stabat Akish
9/18 - Tarbes, France @ Celtic Pub
9/19 - Montpelier, France w/ PoiL (pending)
9/20 - Southwest France or Barcelona?
9/21 - Carmaux, France Rock In Opposition Festival (!!!!)
9/22 - Day off
9/23 - Lyon, France w/ Fat 32 (pending)
9/24 - Switzerland...?
9/25 - Trento, Italy @ Trentino Jazz Festival @ Univ. of Trento
9/26 - Switzerland or Germany...?
9/27 - Munich, Germany @ Kafe Kult
9/28 - Würzburg, Germany FreakShow ArtRock Festival!

Thanks for all your love and listening and support!

- Matt

Not so much illness, just a really really poorly timed kidney stone. A really really poorly timed and really really painful kidney stone. It's gone, and he's much better...

WE DID IT!

As of yesterday at 4:57 AM PST we have met our funding goal of $7500!  And the contributions keep coming!  WOOHOOOOOO!

We cannot thank you enough for your support (hence all the shwag)!  Sweet!

But really folks, our deepest gratitude goes out to all of you.  It is truly humbling and inspiring to be the recipients of so much support.  Stay tuned for your rewards and other juicy morsels!

Much love from:

I'm fairly certain they will continue to accept donations.  Tongue
