new Bishop Allen album + tour!

Yesterday Christian posted a notice on the band's myspace:

"We're about halfway done with this thing. There's no title yet, but the songs are sounding really good; a bit more like our "Charm School" days than "Broken String". It's got a lot of energy, because that's how we're feeling: energetic. We got a slow start in the first half of the year, working on some other things, but the songs are coming quickly now. Sunshine always helps."

    Yeah! Why Kenyon???? Sigh. . .

    We were lucky enough to catch Bishop Allen at The Beachland (in the Tavern) a couple years ago BUT surprisingly there was like no one there! I guess if I were them I might not be encouraged to return to our neck of the woods either*

    I suspect they'll be equally disappointed a Kenyon, where probably no one has heard of them. Oberlin people have, for sure.

    Hey guess what! Bishop Allen was recently in the Street Date studios- check it out!
