Updated: Apr 19
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. (https://www.coffisbrothers.com/shop)
- 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.
