Sorry we’ve not been in touch that much recently..
We’re still here though, and are working on lots of fun new Dear Leaders things. They’re going to be the best yet, by some quite considerable way. We’re going to be busier than we’ve ever been, and it’s fucking great.
Think of it not so much as a New Year’s resolution, more just the nagging realisation that we’ve not had all that much to show for our few short years on this Earth. Think of it not so much as a desire to get rich, famous and bloated (that just doesn’t happen anymore, folks), but more that there’s great things to be said about making music for the sake of making music and sharing it with people, $$$ not being the primary concern. And finally, think of it not as something to do in your spare time, but realise that being in a band with your best friends, and doing it all you can with it, is the most fun you can have.

Strange huh? I bet The Other Guys Out Of Another Level would have a few stories to tell about the importance of enjoying the music-making while it lasts.
See you all soon.
