VICTORY! The indomitable A.K. Wilson perfectly summarized our record release party at Enchanted Forest with one beautiful photo. Of course that didn't stop me from posting a ton of other gems from this mind-blowing occasion. Many of the photos here are courtesy of Alyssa Herrman of FOTO PHORTRESS and the rest are by A.K. Wilson and Meadow, as usual, with a few nice ones from Drew Wilson and Jessie Detwiller added for good measure (hope I didn't forget anyone). Who knew our Music From Enchanted Forest LP would sell out before we could even announce the release party? And who knew the release party would sell out in two weeks?? Not us. But we sure ain't complaining. Thanks to ALL of you who came out and shared a dream come true. Very special thanks to Danava, Thrones, Susan Vaslev and Possibly Irish for spectacular performances in a truly enchanted environment. Thank you to founder/visionary Roger Tofte for building a special piece of paradise right along Interstate 5 and to the entire extended Tofte Family for allowing us to celebrate your beloved kingdom in all our spiked denim and leather splendor. Lastly thanks to Jordan Dent and Derek Vaslev for managing the stage and welcoming us so warmly. See ya all real soon, eh?

Music From Enchanted Forest actually sold out before we could announce the goddamn release party...and now it appears that the release party is going to sell out much sooner than expected too! Thank you to everyone who grabbed wristbands within the first few days of our announcement. It means a lot to me that this event is resonating so profoundly with so many. If you haven't ordered your wristband yet - and if you wish to see Danava and Thrones perform live at the most spectacular hand-crafted and family-owned amusement park in the nation - I encourage you to do so very soon. You can buy your wristband here. In the meantime, I also urge you to take a moment to read this awesome new interview with Enchanted Forest's Susan Vaslev! It is by far the best piece of writing about the Northwest's most beloved roadside attraction that I've ever read. July 9th will be amazing! That's a promise.

Fourteen year old Dread is very fuckin' impressed right now. Goddamn! The last time I saw The Texas Chainsaw Massacre Part 2 on 35mm was the day it came out in 1986, and it was even more incredible looking than I remembered on the big screen! Our deepest gratitude to Bill Moselely for coming to town and laying down one of the most memorable weekends of a very memorable year so far. Special thanks to our pals Doug, Dan, Matt, Nate and everyone at Hollywood Theatre for their continued support and hospitality. Thank you to everyone who came out and gave Bill the warmest of welcomes. It was incredible meeting such dedicated Chainsaw fans! Also, thanks to Judy Fox, photographers Kaili Kallisti, Ben Eastman and a few unidentified strangers for sharing their pics. This Wyrd War will not be stopped. "Peel that pig and slice him thick!"
