6.Hearts & Minds
7.Mars Is Bright Tonight
9."Wearing A Moustache"
Not sure when I'm going to release it, but I've got a couple things I want to do with it before I put it on the internet. If you want a taste of it check out my MYSPACE page. I just posted a new song the other day, and it's got some of the old demos from the album up there.I recorded about 14 songs while writing this record, and since I only put 9 on the actual album I've got a lot of leftovers. Before I put out the actual album I'm going to release a sort of sampler called Distortion & Compression that I'll post for free on my website. It will have all the B-Sides and some alternate versions of the songs on J&D. I don't have a track list nailed down for this album yet, but that's the artwork.

References (in order of appearance):
-The big poster on the wall in Greg’s house is supposed to be the Darjeeling Litmited poster. I have a full size one in my room.
-The band playing is called Mammal Amalgamation. I thought the band that Tad played in should be something like Animal Collective, but way crazier, so that’s where I got the name from.
-Greg’s sweatshirt sports a tiny logo of a GJ symbol. Which is the symbol for the band Glassjaw, which was my favorite band growing up. I always felt an affinity to the logo since it had the G in it.
-The bouncer’s name is Kris. This is a very insider reference to the fact that a lot of my other friends thought I based the Bouncer off my friend Chris. Even though it wasn’t originally on purpose, I decided to keep the joke going.
-The manager’s look is based off the electro DJ Steve Aoki. I did change his hair and made him French though.
-The lyrics in the song that the lead singer is singing is a very vague reference to the Beatles song I Am the Walrus.
-The sound guy who gets yelled at is based off my bud Devin who had a very similar experience happen to him.
I think that’s all of them.

I also decided to do a drawing of a couple of characters from Gyakusu, and post the sketch Hipp did for me at comic-con a couple years back. It's probably the best sketch I've gotten from an artist, and Rob Guillory was really into it when he saw it.
