This Saturday is our CD Release party, but we've been informed that our records will not be delivered until march 29th. SOOOOOOOOO, we will still play this saturday but it WILL NOT be a CD release party. we will still rock out. we will still have new merch(no cDs). we still want you all to come. and so with that...

WE WILL HAVE OUR CD RELEASE @ THE UNDERGROUND on APRIL 1st (and, no this isn't just a bad april fool's day joke) we will have many, many copies of DDSS for sale. we will be playing with THE F.M.'s and some special guests.

please don't ask what happenend because it's all business bullshit and WE ARE VERY SORRY but remember we are doing this all ourselves, with our own money and on our own time after school and work. we love playing music and will continue to do so, even with these snags. i get so frustrated sometimes because it seems that we will never get a break, but in the end, we don't worry because of our fans and our love for all types of music. please continue to support us and we will continue to play. for those of you who pre-ordered CD's, again it will be a few days before you'll receive them. for those of you coming from out-of-town to see the show, we deeply apologize for any inconveniance. this is the life we chose and i fucking love it.

I've heard Danger Danger Silent Stranger and I've had a CD of all the tracks (albeit unfinished mixes) for a few weeks now. All I can say is that this album will blow your mind.
I've been an avid Return fan for a couple of years now and even I couldnt have predicted QUITE how good DDSS is. I knew it was going to be amazing, but this might even better Build Me A Reason, which as you all know is a tall order.
After hearing these mixes, Justin told me and my friend Calvin that they are NOTHING in comparison to the completed version. Matt apparently just "got lit" and merged the whole product together with electronic trickery and genius additional touches to make the album less like a collection of songs and more like one, flowing masterpiece. He said that the completed version makes the version I've got sound "terrible." I fear that the day I hear the completed version, my mind will just shut down and I will die of joy.

I was wondering if anyone has any kind of recording of the live session that The Return did for KUCI a few days ago. Any format is fine be it mp3 or even a tape or something.
Thanks a lot

SATURDAY, June 12th

If you live in the OC area, tune in KUCI 88.9 FM from 2-4pm to listen to The Return play a LIVE SET featuring songs off their upcoming album DANGER DANGER SILENT STRANGER as well as songs from BUILD ME A REASON. If you cannot tune in, stream it through the station's website, www.kuci.org on that day.

SUNDAY, June 13th

Still monkeying around in the OC, The Return plays with The Indecisives, Stalking Roxy and Caffeinated Superheroes at THE ATTIC which is right next door to The Chain Reaction in Anaheim. Show starts at 8pm, ALL AGES, and best of all, it's free. So there's no reason to NOT be there. Unless you don't have a car. Then you better start walking now.

MONDAY, June 14th

Not so much the OC, but closer there than to their homes in Ventura, The Return plays again with The Indecisives and Hiccup Truck at this place Caltech, Dabney House 1200 E California Blvd. Pasadena, CA 91126. Click the address for the Yahoo! map. Show starts at 7pm(?) according to The Indecisives, and 8pm according to the guestbook entry Justin left on their website. So bring a tent, or even just your sleeping bag, and after their show at The Attic, hitch a ride out to Pasadena and sleep on the front step and wait anxiously for them.

So that's the weekend as of this fine Thursday afternoon. Who knows what could happen though. Their van might run out of gas and not make it out to Orange County and well, shit happens. When you're at the show, buy lots of MERCH and rock out hard. Did I mention to buy LOTS OF MERCH since the shows are FREE?!?!? Oh, and check out their merch and buy some.

Bring all the people that you know and tell them you've got their cover charge! HA HA You've got their cover if they bring moolah for merch. MERCH MERCH MERCH.

Watch, the boys will forget their merch bin.
show dates?
