Vasectomies was born out of a conversation that started with a simple question: "are you done?" We all answered yes.
The question was in reference to having children. You see, in the years following the release of Anerican Anthems vol. 2, winner of the 2011 Hoboken Music Awards "Album of the Year," we had no fewer than 6 kids, bringing the band total to 7. Suffice it to say that it was difficult to maintain the pace our fans were accustomed to with 7 young kids between us.
Vasectomies is a free EP for our fans. It contains 7 previously unreleased tracks. Some songs, like Rock and Roll part III, have been staples in our live show for years but never quite fit on an album. Other songs, like Story of Our Love and Wasted Uptown have never been heard before.
We're giving the EP away to fans as a way of saying "thanks for sticking around while we were tending to life."
Vasectomies also signals a renewed commitment to making music. It is unlikely that we'll spend weeks on tour sleeping on couches far from our families now. However, we got a taste of what it might be like to not make music and frankly we didn't like it. Now we're working on finding a new path.
In addition to the Vasectomies EP, we are deep in preproduction on a new album which we hope to record later this summer and release some time in the fall. We've never been more proud of or excited about the music we're making.
