For those of you who have hoped to catch both Unwed Sailor and Johnathon's new project, Native Lights on tour, you're in luck. A new fall tour is in the works during which both bands will play, and some of the dates have already been announced! New Native Lights recordings are also being wrapped up, and will likely make their way onto the web sometime soon!

Summer is here and with it, some interesting new developments. Unwed Sailor will be taking a break from their near-incessant touring to write and record new material. But fret not! There will still be a small handful of shows, including DFest, in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Aside from that, Johnathon will also be playing shows in a new band called Native Lights, whose music you can check out by clicking the link fifteen words before this one. Native Lights will also be gracing the aforementioned Fest of the D with their sumptuous sounds.

Good day to you all. You look wonderful. 2009 is now bearing down upon us with all its glory and Unwed Sailor is doing its part to fill this year with every synoym for "amazing" you can possibly think of. For starters, the new record History is continuing to be worked on throughout the spring and new U.S. and European tours are in the works. On top of that, there are many new items in the store to be purchased with your hefty wads of cash. Vinyl versions of several releases, two new shirts, Circle of Birds finally back in stock, and more! Take a look if you don't believe me, and even if you do.

Greetings! Unwed Sailor has finished mixing Little Wars. The album contains nine songs which clock in at 42 1/2 minutes. The 2xLP version will include two bonus tracks, one remix and one track recorded as part of the Little Wars sessions. Here's a bit more information on the album from the press write-up:
This new full-length has been a concept for several years, the band playing a track or two as part of their live set. "Copper Islands" is a building block for the album and has been part of the live show over the last few years. Little Wars is the band's most ambitious and complex release yet, building on melodic lessons and recording techniques learned over the last several albums. Not content to follow up with their energetic 2000 debut full-length, The Faithful Anchor, with a mere sequel, the band recorded 2003's The Marionette and the Music Box, challenging its fan base with a Peter and the Wolf inspired, classically influenced fairytale.
In 2006, Unwed Sailor released the Circles EP and The White Ox full-length that further departed from their live performance sound, exploring Eno/Lanois ambient recording techniques, resulting in a brooding, gloomy ambient opus wrapped in southwestern imagery. Little Wars reflects both the depth and breadth that Unwed Sailor has developed through these diverging releases and its live show. The songs are energetic and highly melodic, but gently colored and focused by layered keyboards and percussion with a delicate ambience. It also marks the recording return of Matt Putman, Matt Depper, and Nic Tse who recorded The Marionette and the Music Box with Johnathon Ford. The current live line-up - Brooks Tipton, Patrick Ryan, and Andy Haldeman - also played extensively on Little Wars with Phillip Blackwell of Questions in Dialect and occasional live/studio member of Unwed Sailor providing the remix for the vinyl version. The official retail release date is going to be 18 March 2008.
So, there you have it! Keep checking back here and hopefully we'll have more information and/or sound clips available as the release date gets closer.

Here's a quick update to let you know some good news! Little Wars, which I mentioned last month had been completed, is now scheduled for a March 2008 release! Just thought I'd mention that, since it narrows down the release period from "spring" to a specific month. While you're waiting though, you can catch Unwed Sailor on tour with Lotus by checking out the tour page.

Here's a bit of video footage from Unwed Sailor's latest outing. It's pretty wretched quality, but if you missed them firsthand, this is the closest you're going to get. So stop doing that thing with your eyebrows.

Now back from their latest tour, what can Unwed Sailor do but plot for the next one? Recording is their only other option, and being the people that they are, they've chosen to both record and plot several shows for a spring 2007 tour, which you can get an early glimpse at by going to the tour section.
