Ordered Homecoming tonight! Can't wait to get it....sooooooooo good!
about the weekends show in Springfield have been added to Griffin's guestbook! Hope we get a little more than that! AND SOME NEW TOUR DATES SOON ;)
"Griffin House has a new full-length record that will be available online this summer. It's called Homecoming, and will be fully released to retail in January. But in the meantime he's released another 12 songs: The House of David - Volumes One and Two.
The House of David EPs are a collection of songs recorded in January of 2005 (about 6 months after the release of Lost and Found). The songs are an experimental compilation of diverse sounds that are rumored to be haunted by the ghosts of Elvis and Liberace. These legends are also rumored to make a few guest appearances on the recordings, as they have a history at the House of David where the EPs were recorded. The House of David EPs and the full length Homecoming, will tally a total of 25 new songs. Hopefully that's enough for folks who've waited to hear what Griffin House has been up two for the past two years.
" That'll be us folks
To purchase House of David Volumes One and Two go to Nettmusic
EVERYONE SAY YAY!
sorry for the delay in putting this here, I know the news is a few days old
a nice extract:
"You can see why he needs someone like Fitchuk to get his ass in gear. Griffin himself is so laidback he could foreseeably fall off the end of the world and not be too bothered about it. However, his daydreamer demeanour belies a drive that sees him wanting to push on to the next level, and find his niche."
So we caught Griff at the Arts Centre a the weekend, and he was as wonderful as always. However we were treated to a rake of new material which he later promised would be out 'in the fall' so YAY! New Cd! We also made him promise to come back to the UK soon :)( a couple of pics hereCollapse )
We've created an e-card for the upcoming UK tour
. Check it out at the link below, and share it with your friends! Even those not in the UK may like this, as it's got three songs to listen to, plus links to the website, myspace, and email list. Fun for everyone!
And don't forget that if there's a show coming up in your area, we have printable posters and handbills for each show linked from the tour page at GriffinHouseMusic.com. Perfect for hanging around your school or handing out at the coffee shop.
Enjoy, and we hope to see some of you on this tour,
I must say I am very pleased to hear Griffin will be supporting John Mellencamp this year! Pity it's not in the UK, but still, hope someone from here gets to see him in the US :D

Headliners Christiansilva's frontman Guy is the kind of figure those folks at the X Factor must be crying out for, prodigious of talent, angelically versatile of voice, and positvely adonisian. Silva by name, but indie-gold by nature.
Griffin House is main support - employing a voice and a guitar to explore conflicting themes of spirituality and desolation, love and pride, hope and pain, divinity and darkness - and we've also Ange Boxall and Mirima's Andy Sloman.

"I'm experimenting with trying to be colorful and still humorous without swearing too much. I'm cleaning up the website. If you want to hear me cuss, you're just going to have to come to a show, or hang out with me. But as for the site, I'm keeping it classy. Stay classy, everybody."
heeheehee so there you go folks....
07.08.05 - I'm alive
Justin and I felt like we made a narrow escape yesterday morning in London. We woke up in the morning and walked down to Victoria Station, a huge underground hub. Fortunately no bombs were going off there. But we were in the Underground at approximately the same time as the terrorist attacks. We are thankful that we are ok. We didn't realize how serious it was until we were back home and we saw everything on the news. We were slightly oblivious as the Gatwick Express was shuttling us out to the airport and away from danger. We heard on the way that there had been an incident, but we didn't know many details. Pray for the people that didn't make it. It makes me so angry, this terrorism. So heartless, and senseless, and sad. It's good to be back home.
