Wow, right?

About a week ago I was on the road with Devin Townsend, and also in the midst of composing a big old essay for this website…a super long one, like an old-school Mike Types To You missive from the halcyon days of keneally.com, full of solid info and tangential, irrelevant asides – and then the world had other plans for all of us, and made a whole lot of the stuff I was writing about REALLY irrelevant, especially regarding future gigs which can now best be described as “up in the air.”

So, I won’t burden you with all that. But boy, it was a great essay! (Actually I just re-read it and I’d describe it as pretty good.

We have been working on a new album together over the last few months and we’ll premiere a couple of the tunes from it at this gig.
