Katie and I would like to begin with Gratitude. Thank you all for another great year. We are going to take some time off the road and go live in South Africa for the next 5 months. We rented an airbnb on the Garden Route (Dec/Jan) and a small flat outside Cape Town (Feb/March). We'll use this time to create new art, write new music and learn how to be a family. That way we'll be ready and full of new life when we come back to USA next spring/summer.
I booked a few local shows and festivals during our time in South Africa. We can't wait to reconnect with our friends and community out there.
Thank you for showing us what is possible.
Brian, Katie & New Baby.
