tons more soon!


we've got a little more info for y'all:

the beginning of the release schedule for 2007 is as follows...

svss-07 : the hi.fi.massacre "disarm the humans" (digital release)
svss-08 : the hi.fi.massacre "live at the lo-fi (+1)" (digital release/limited cd)

there's actually talk about possibly getting the band together to do a final celebratory show for these releases...keep your fingers crossed and we'll do all we can to make it happen!

josh, jarom, and mike from the hi.fi.massacre are playing in a new band called loom now, also featuring john finnegan (the new transit direction). look for them to start playing shows around salt lake city - they just played kilby court last week.kory (and josh, i think) from hi.fi is/are also in michigan and xur...who i believe will be releasing a split cd on another local label sometime early this year.


today her candane hit the road to do 3 weeks with i am the ocean (featuring former hc member kellen dopp) and love me destroyer. virgil at suburban home records gave the boys a mention on the shr website today too.


ok...time to get crackin'. it's 2007 and svss is thinking it's time to get serious! our new year's resolution: coagulate. yep, that's what it's time to do.

as of today, we patiently await the return of a recording contract from an amazing band in the northwest. when it arrives, we'll fill you in on the details.

we're trying to track down danny vesper and see if he's ready to release the first quick & dead disc yet...we thought he was getting close, but now he's gone back into hiding (aka: the studio) for more yet-to-be released genius-to-tape sessions. as of now, he has written about 40 tracks for us to dig through for the debut full-length, and they are all amazing. also, it sounds like the band danny plays bass in, shelby are planning on recording a new album starting now.

finally, we're writing up a contract for the best band to come out of iowa in a damn long time. more on that soon too. plan on a record that will most likely be recorded with andy patterson (her candane, art of kanly, still breaking hearts, the hotness) here in salt lake city.

what else? those of you with pcs should go buy the digital version of "shock value" by twelve gauge valentine at the svss burnlounge store. go ahead. it's worth it.

we're excited to send you to itunes to buy the new her candane record, even though we didn't get to put our name on the back - search for her candane on itunes.

finally, thanks to everyone who has sent us music, messages, input, etc. it all helps, and we appreciate the communication! keep it up! more news soon. there's lots to be excited about... well, it appears to be holiday time, y’all. hopefully the season is keeping you all smiling and spreading holiday cheer (or whatever you want to call it.) here are some updates – sorry for the delay in getting this information to you.



happy new year!
