Wow. Been the weirdest month or so since we played a show. Lots of news. So many changes.
Big line up change. I dont know how this shit happens. I'd like to say for the most part its been drama free, but this time that isnt necessarily the case. Details aside, Charles is back in, Fife is out and Sarah is helping on more of a live performance level than before, where she was just helping with outfits and what not. So now Charles is basically playing some guitar, some keys, lots of pedals and tons of noise. Sarah works the sampler or it's equivilant, plays a little keys and looks cute. I'm just yelling, crooning and pedal-fucking as usual. The outcome is a little weirder now... still Crack:WAR-ish, a lot like Wolf Eyes and maybe a tidbit Throbbing Gristle-ish. Or a ton. I dunno.
We're still touring. Final dates soon.
Oh, and we changed the name to Night Wounds.

Been a while since I updated this.
It looks like Sondra, Julian of Giant Bat's girlfriend will be playing keys for us at the upcoming Blood Brothers show at the Middle East. If anything changes, I'll be sure to keep you updated.
Brand new completely redesigned Hott Ruxx website coming within the next day or two. The art I put together is simple and very beautiful, yet still a little weird, keeping with my style.
Hott Ruxx demo cdr coming very soon, we promise. We just need to lay the four tracks down real quick and throw vocals on 'em. I'd like to assume we'll have it out by the show on the 8th, for sure, but I'm probably lying.

Hey friends! Maybe you can help?
Does anyone know how to get ahold of the fine folks who book shows for weird-minded bands at 2nd Ave. Pizza (sp?) in Seattle, WA?! We need a show there August 31st, so let me know! Anyone who can help gets a present, for real.

1. The June/July tour, if I hadn't already mentioned, is cancelled. It was only five shows but cash wise we just couldn't afford it, considering we're attempting to save so that this August/September Full US deal goes as perfect as possible without serious disaster or panic. Plus, 2/3rd's of the Ruxx are basically homeless for the time being, which in reality is the entire band since...
2. Charles has resigned from position as keyboardist. It was a mutual decision and was decided on calm/fair ground and we wish him the best. Fuck, we'll still see him all the time because he's my best friend. He just cant take the time off from work and school that's coming up in early September. Hell, not everyone can be psychotic and give up a good paying job to go play "rock and roll band" for a month. Luckily we've done enough drugs to somehow convince our minds that it's a fine idea.
3. The Blood Brothers/Kill Me Tomorrow/Chromatics show downstairs at the Middle East is sure to be a blast. Come one, come all if you live in the Boston area or fuck, if you're from New England at all. Especially you NH and Maine cats, considering this is the furthest North these three bands will be going this time around! I dare you to say you don't absolutely adore "Plaster Hounds"! Anyways... July 8th and it starts... I dont know? Regardless, it's ten bucks and while the place holds 575, it's sure to sell out. Havent you heard? We're huge. Well... one of the bands is.

Our show with Glass Candy the other night was a lot of fun. Despite sound issues, we had a good time and people seemed to enjoy us. I'm quite positive girls enjoyed it when I grabbed someone in the crowd's dick and held on for dear life.
We have zero shows until we leave for tour. Maybe this will change? I have absolutely no idea.
We're doing a split 7" with yet to be confirmed band. We have a list in order of who we want it with and we'll have someone for the b-side signed on soon. Who is putting it out? Oh, two lovely ladies from Oklahoma and North Carolina. How many girls do you know that have their own label? More power to them! Girls are geniuses, not coat racks.
Oh, the website has been completely redone and every page has been updated. New photographs, tour dates, release information, related bands info, etc. Check it out. It'll be a good waste of twenty or so of your precious minutes.

Hey thanks for friending this journal. Updating the website every five seconds is pretty bogus so tenative and small updates will be in here. It also gives people a chance to comment with questions or comments, instead of just wondering what's up and not doing anything about it.
soft_pyramids and holdenc are both Hott Ruxx representatives. They will let you know whats up.
Okay, so we are taking a break from shows to write and get shit together for the live aspect of things. That bizarre mind fuck at the Muddy River Smokehouse the other night was only a taste... a halfassed taste at that. Our first tenative show back is set for May 21st. More info soon.
