I’m going to make this short and sweet. Hit you hard then slot and run. First thing I want to say is thank you. Whether you’re a new fan or an old one… the fact that you’re here and reading my drek means the world to me. I’m going to keep it up too.

The new album is nearly done. We’ve been working hard on it and have some studio time coming up real soon that should finish things up. I’m not going to get into it but believe you me, chum. We need it… and badly. We need something that isn’t about gunshots and bandages so lets get some PVC and some stomp back into this violent life, yeah?

I’ve been thinking about music more though, lately. I’m not leaving Riot Blue and after this album comes out I promise we’re going to support it while getting to work right away on something new. I’m going to share something with you all though. I… went through something recently. Something very personal and it’s changed my perspective on a few things. The only way I know how to say what I have to say is through music but the things I have to say aren’t Riot Blues language. Keep your ears to the ground, kids. Going to call it ‘Mana Burns’.

Word to the wise if you’d allow me a moment for a PSA. The shadows are getting darker right now. So damned midnight pitch that you can’t even see your own hands in front of your face. If you think that the Apollo space station was an accident think again. A lot of people died for no good reason and I’m not going to be the one who blows the top off it but it WILL fraggin’ come out. I know you’re reading this… and I know you don’t understand fear. But I hope you will before the end… and there is always an end. For all of us.

In response to my last blog! Thanks for the advise on tattoo parlors in LA. Turns out things got a bit hectic over there towards the end of our trip. Drek… that’s an understatement but it’s sensitive enough that even I ain’t going to say much more on it. Fortunately or unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances I inherited some… interesting tattoos. Mana burns, boys and girls. Mana burns hot.

Also. Pandora. We need to get some drinks… and maybe one of those illegal sandwiches. I’ll come back to LA for a weekend for that. Your people will never know. Just tell them a wizard did it.
