    ================================================== ===

    We are thrilled to finally announce, after weeks and weeks of all kinds of fickle bullshit that would give the devil a migraine, that our goddamn record release show for Jersey Shores will be happening on Saturday, Sept 27th at King Cobra on Capitol Hill.

    The release of our newest album also just so happens to coincide (within a matter of days) with the first show that Nat and I ever played as Akimbo back in 1998, and I can't think of a better way to make merry than by combining the album release show with a TEN YEAR ANNIVERSARY party. Yeah. Ten. Stupid but true.

    Joining us on this evening will be a few special guests that are actually special, not just other bands that fit the monicker because of tardiness. HELMS ALEE will open, featuring long time flannel-wearing, beard having bro Ben Verellen of Harkonnen. They are one of our favorite bands in Seattle as of late and we're hoping we have many shows together to come. Also playing will be HARVESTMAN, the solo project of one Mr. Steve Von Till, guitar player in Neurosis and label benefactor of Neurot Recordings. To say the least, we think you'll be pleased with the opening bands.

    Akimbo will be performing Jersey Shores in it's entirety. Every succulent note from start to finish. The album comes out on Sept 23rd, or you can buy it from us at the show. Both vinyl and CD will be available.

    So depsite being jaded road hogs full of spite and mirth, we somehow accumulated a crew of friends through our travels. A decade will do that. The people at King Cobra were kind enough to buckle to our unsightly demands and grant us an enormous guest list, because asking your friends to pay to come to a party you're throwing for them is straight up backwards of the ass kind. The upside of that is we're hoping this is just as much a celebration with good friends as it is a show. The downside is that it minimizes the amount of tickets we have available to the public. We've never been the type of band to sell out clubs, but I say this now to anyone interested in coming: get your tickets early! We've invited a shit load of people and the available spots should be considered "effing limited bro". You've been warned.

    An enthusiastic nod to our sponsors who actually played a big part in our convincing King Cobra that over half of their capacity walking in for free was a good idea:

    Lastly, to our friends all over the world, the invites are on the way. If you don't get one in the next few weeks but think you probably should have, please don't be shy. We are total assholes with huge egos and we gave up your spot to shallow jerks who don't actually like us. Get in touch and yell at us. We deserve it.
