MESSAGE FROM THE BAND
Hope you're doing well. Sorry for the lack of updates lately, but we've been keeping very busy making the final preparations to start recording our new album. We'll be working for the rest of the year in LA in a really cool house/studio with our friend John Travis (Social Distortion, Nada Surf, Monster Magnet). We're really excited about the new songs and can't wait for you guys to get a chance to hear them.
As you read above, we're closing down this mailing list on the Sony servers and have started a new one for our new label, Paper Fist. We'll be keeping in touch over the next few months while we're working on the album with a studio diary and photos and video from the studio. So please sign up to continue to get the latest news from us.
We look forward to getting back on the road early next year after we finish the new album. Thanks for all of your love and support.

NEW ONLINE STORE!
We just launched a brand new online store hosted by our friends at Zambooie. The new store has the lowest prices of any store we've ever had and will provide the best possible customer service. There are new t-shirt designs up now and we'll be adding more new products over the next couple of months. Check it out! Thanks.
'FRENCH KISS-OFF' MP3 RETIRED
News from our friend Jason Tate @ Absolutepunk.net: "I have retired the Juliana Theory song, French Kiss Off, and it will go down as one of our most downloaded MP3s of all time, over 250,000 downloads - seriously insane."
NEW MUSIC & VIDEO!
The band recently recorded some brand new demos for their next album:
You can now download the brand new "French Kiss-Off" mp3 exclusively at Absolutepunk.net. Check it out and holla back. Another new song, "My Heart Is A Soldier" - even has a video directed by our friend Darren Doane to go along with it:

Check the video out and let us know what you think. The audio version of "Soldier" is available at The Juliana Theory's new PUREVOLUME site - along with songs from each of the band's cd releases.
MORE DATES ADDED
We've just posted another handful of new dates and will continue to add new ones as they're confirmed. The tour will run until May 1. A couple of recent tourdate changes: the email we sent to the mailing list had the Colorado show listed as being in Denver, it's actually going to be at the Fox Theatre in Boulder on April 1. Also, the Seattle show is now on Saturday 4/17 at Graceland, not on 4/16. Get all of the latest show and ticket info here.
SPRING TOUR DATES
The Juliana Theory will be headlining a Spring U.S. club tour with special guests Anberlin, Bayside and Number One Fan. The tour will run from March 27-May 1 and will cover the west coast, midwest and parts of Canada. It'll be the first time the band has been on the west coast and Canada in over a year.
