doctor!doctor! Take A Break

Spaz/Doomcore band doctor!doctor! will be taking some time off after their current tour to focus on finances, a new album, and a music video. The band had this to say:

we’re now on day two of our first tour of 2010. we’ve hit the road for just over a week with our new friends The Javelin Dance from Cincinatti Ohio. despite bad weather, our first show went pretty well. we’ve still got another 8 days left though, so we we hope to see you while we’re out.

after tour, however, we will be taking some time off. while 2009 was a pretty good year for the band, it was not so great for us individually. currently only one of us has a job, and we will be taking some time off for people to get back on their feet financially. this is NOT to be confused with a HIATUS (only because that word usually implies breaking up. which we are not.) this is simply … time off. we’ve been going strong with only a few weekends off since we started over 3 and a half years ago and this is probably a good thing for us emotionally as well.

this year has a lot in store for us, we feel. we’ve started working on a full length concept album, and have already written one full song and pieces to three others. we’re holding on to those for a while though until we break them out at a show. we’re really trying to push ourselves as we write, and we hope that you will enjoy the end results. we will say… some of what we are writing is the heaviest stuff we’ve written thusfar in our career, and we will say… please circle pit. we are also in the long-term search for a good cover song.

we are also planning on filming a real music video for “The Monotony Of Freedom” sometime this year (potentially March, we aren’t sure yet). for those of you who care about how videos are made, we will not be doing a live video (we like storyline videos) for it, we’ve already started storyboarding the ideas and putting together a small cast. Lisa from Only The Ashes Remain (who also recorded I Guess This Wasn’t The Road To See The Wizard) will also be in charge of filming the video. (in the meantime, check out her other video feats at Dinosaur Garden.

we are also slowly writing all our material to date as sheet music. ideally this will include discontinued songs as well, just for posterity’s sake.

so please bear with us as we go underground for a little while. we’ll be back, and with a vengeance. (what does that even mean?.. i guess it means… more shows, new music and more touring.)
