We’ve been away for a while, but it certainly hasn’t been for no good reason.
At the beginning of August, I took an opportunity to drum tech for Panic! At The Disco. This was a very tough decision for me considering all the hard work that had gone into the record, the formation of Mosey as a band, as well as the direct involvement of others around me making their own sacrifices for this cause. In the end, everyone was very supportive of my decision to see where this opportunity may lead.
As it turned out, after only 5 shows into the tour I was asked to take position as drummer for Panic! At The Disco, while continuing to tech for myself. I had one night and one half-day during show prep to learn how to play 15 songs or risk having to put the tour on hold for rehearsals. After 7-8 hours of air drumming in my hotel room I came through that first night in Nashville and it has been non-stop ever since. I finished out the headlining tour and then went straight into the Fall Out Boy tour. This was followed by a week of record release shows and TV appearances. In fact, just last week we flew to Russia to perform on the Miss Universe pageant where we got to perform “Dream On” with Steven Tyler. Currently, we’re finishing out a tour of Europe and the UK.
Amidst all of the excitement with Panic!, I received word from our good friend, Masa, of Kick Rock Invasion in Japan, that they’d like to sign Mosey to officially release our record, “The Way We Remember It.” Needless to say our answer was a resounding “Yes!” And now, we’d like to announce that the record will be released in Japan this Wednesday, November 20, 2013, as an exclusive hard copy with a beautiful 8-page booklet. While I’m off with Panic!, we have faith that the record will do some walking and talking on its own in one of my favorite countries, Japan.
I can never say what each next day will bring. I’ve already been flipped on my head a handful of times over the past 5 months and it doesn’t show much signs of slowing down. For now, I will continue to take it day by day, give my best, and be open to whatever may come next.
As for Mosey… To be honest, Mosey started out without a name at all. It was just a handful of music that I really wanted to make the best it can be. For that simple intention, whatever we may call it, it’s not really something that can be stopped. There may be time in-between or times when things are charging forward, but in no way have we given up on the deep-seeded drive to continually create music and content we can be proud of.
For now, though, let’s agree to continue to call it Mosey, so you always know where to find us.
