If I'm not mistaken, the Coffises are at Day 37 (April 19) of our Shelter-in-Place and although things are certainly different, I think we're starting to get into a bit of a routine for now. But man, it's hard getting used to this. Nearly every week for the last six years, Jamie, Kyle, Aidan, and myself have packed up our gear, hopped in the van on Thursday or Friday, drove for several hours, then played a show or two or three before returning back home late Sunday night. That became the routine and now, like all of us, the routine is no longer....the routine (not my best sentence but give me a break, I haven't left home in over a month). Nowadays, Jamie and I put a phone on a tripod and play shows in our living room. Aside from that, I haven't seen Aidan and Kyle in months, and haven't not seen Jamie in forever. It's like every time I turn a corner he's there! Joking aside, we're all safe, healthy, and have even stayed busy somehow. In fact, there's kinda a lot of news to report in the Coffis world (what the hell is Coffis World? I'd avoid that place if it exists). That's enough rambling out of me, let's get to what we came here for.

There's a lot to report so what's the best way to do this? Bullet points? Hyphens? Short, all caps sentences with too many exclamation points for things that don't need to be exclaimed? NEW WEBSITE!!! How was that? I just wanted to try it once, but I'm a hyphen guy, plus bullet points aren't very PC anyway.

- We've got a new website. You know this. You're on it right now. Take a look around. There's a lot of new music, videos, and merchandise. Just a couple clicks away. Fine, I'll put a link for the store. (

- That brings us to this new album. You also know this. On April 24th we release (drop) 'In The Cuts'. It's our fourth full-length album. The album will be available on all streaming platforms as of the 24th, but If you'd like a physical copy you can order one from our website now. (Vinyl coming this summer)

- Though we can't celebrate the release of this album with an in person show, (is that what we're going to call concerts from now on?) we thought a new album was worth celebrating so we're doing a Facebook Live Album Release Party on Thursday April 23rd. We're going to play some tunes, play some tracks off the new album, and catch up with Aidan and Kyle. We hope you'll join us. We think you'll be entertained.

During a month when we thought we'd be gearing up to play our album release shows that would lead into a busy summer of touring, we're looking at a blank calendar of shows that will stay blank for the foreseeable future. And there's no doubt about it that we're bummed we can't play these shows but in some ways we feel fortunate that we can bring this new album to you in a time when we can't play shows. We'll get to those shows someday and when that day does come when we are told it's safe to perform in front of an audience, we'll be as ready and as excited as we've ever been to play, and we'll see you there. Thanks for all the support over the last month. Means a lot.

If you read these posts then you’ll know that we’re putting out a new album on April 24th of this year. The new album, In The Cuts, is 12 previously unrecorded, unreleased new songs that we’re very excited about. If you’ve come to any of our shows in the last year then you’ve heard some of these songs, but on April 24th you can listen to them anywhere, any time. Ahead of the release of the full album we are releasing one song that is commonly referred to (in the industry) as a single. I’m sure most of you were already privy to that though, as the readers of this blog are highly intelligent folks. Anyway… On Friday March 13th we will be releasing In My Imagination to all the streaming services (or at least all the ones we’re aware of) where you listen to music. So that means Spotify for most of you. We hope you take roughly 3 minutes out of your day and listen to the song, and then we hope you enjoy it. We think you will. Thanks for listening to it and enjoying it. Here’s a little bit about the song.

In My Imagination was the last song I wrote for the album. It was inspired by an idea I had to write a kids song of all things. It evolved into something slightly more sophisticated when I came up with the chords for the chorus. I brought it to the band and our producer Tim Bluhm, and we came up with a pretty cool arrangement. It instantly became one of my favorites to sing, especially with all the moving parts on the outro, and I was quite pleased with how that section came out in the recording particularly.“ –Jamie Coffis

“Every year at Thanksgiving our parents ask us to play some music for the rest of our family. We always reluctantly say yes and play a few songs together, but this time Jamie said he had a new song he had just written. That was the first time I heard In My Imagination. It was just a few weeks before we were going into the studio, so a few days before we went to record, we got the band together along with Tim and came up with a nice arrangement. I think it’s one of the best songs Jamie’s ever written and has become one my favorite songs from this band.” –Kellen Coffis

We are very excited to announce that we will be releasing our fourth full-length studio album titled In The Cuts on April 24th. In The Cuts, produced by Tim Bluhm, is our first release since the Back To The Rubble EP in 2019 and our first full-length album since Roll With It in 2017. In The Cuts was recorded at 25th Street Studios in Oakland and Tim’s House in Fairfax over the course of 2019. We have several more exciting announcements coming soon. Stay tuned.

Coming April 24th, 2020
