This in Friday (sorry, I was out of the office) from the Modern Skirts:
What March Was Like
A) We went into the studio again at the end of February and spent two and a half weeks recording new material down in New Orleans. We have 9 songs so far towards another album and pleanty of time to record more and tweak the ones we have. Again, there is something completely new about these songs, they feel different than anything we’ve done, and honestly, they could scare the living hell out of some people. You should be extremely curious as to what we’ve been up to.
B) South By Southwest was a good time for all this year.
C) We signed on with a booking agent, Red Ryder out of Chicago, who boasts such artists as Andrew Bird, Magnetic Fields, Mark Olson, Isobel Campbell, The Spinto Band, and the Great Lake Swimmers. We were thrilled to have Red Ryder as part of our family, and our excitement has only grown as our schedule has started coming together.
The band goes on to list upcoming tour dates, which will bring them to the 40 Watt on April 17. Learn more here.
