We played this show the day after recording these songs in the studio: the new Behold the Arctopus album is 98% written. let's all collectively enjoy the mystery of that last unknown 2%.

a message from Weasel Walter: HEY. i put out a new solo album today called "Fragments". It features previously unreleased recordings of compositions dating back from 1999 to present. 70 minutes of brutal prog in for people who dig the The Flying Luttenbachers' "Systems Emerge" and "Incarceration" albums, as well as "Horroscension" by Behold... The Arctopus. It's nuts and there's a lot of notes, painstakingly selected as you might surmise. If you buy the download, you get the 9 page PDF file with extensive liner notes and you help me keep the electricity on one more day. thanks
