05-25-2005CHANT POLL '05 is underway; Summer schedule filling in, including John & Chan date; ?Bastardos! is in the can!

Let's get it on! The ninth annual CHANT POLL (all caps necessary) is underway! The poll that brought you Onslaught, As We Wonder and other dusty, forgotten fan favorites, is now online at fellowtraveler.org. For more information on the history of the CHANT POLL, check out the CHANT POLL FAQ, then visit fellowtraveler.org and email away - you never know what the band might want to bring back!

The summer schedule is slowly filling in, and Gina sez that within a week's time, it should be well fleshed out. Here's what's been added since the last update; summer tour is expected to run from July 3rd through the end of August.

07/03/05 Grand Targhee, Alta, WY
07/15/05 Ram's Head Live, Baltimore, MD
08/19/05 Spring Acres Park, Springville, UT
08/20/05 Western Idaho Fair, Boise, ID
08/21/05 University of Missouri-Kansas City, Kansas City, MO
One other new show on the schedule is a John Popper/Chan Kinchla date. John and Chan have once again been asked to appear at Detroit Lions quarterback Joey Harrington's annual Harrington Family Foundation Benefit Concert. Since its debut in 2003 - which featured John and Chan as well as a headlining set from Jason Mraz - the show has grown from a small gathering at the Crystal Ballroom to this year's outdoor event at the Rose Quarter Commons. The concert, scheduled for June 23rd, will see John and Chan playing a set as "special guests", in addition to an opening set from Antigone Rising and a headlining set from Donavon Frankenreiter. Harrington is expected to jam with the artists as well, given his talent on the keyboard.

Finally, a well-placed source sends out the news that ¡Bastardos! is officially in the can and the masters are on their way. The album is still slated for a September release, and is expected to be accompanied by a lengthy fall tour of theaters, ballrooms and clubs in major markets across the country, supported fully by the new label - the first full fall tour in three years.
