In other Backtones news:

The band is currently at Sugarhill Studios recording five new songs to add to the self-titled CD released last December (**Remember that it was one of my best-of 2004 Houston releases). The new full-length record will be released in January 2006.

The new tracks are: “Dirty” / “Another Moment” / “Glamorous” / “My Hell” / “Make-Up”

Also, the Backtones are also looking for a new bassist now that Mykel Foster departed the band after 7 or so years. They are looking for a professional bassist who can tour. If you think you can fill Foster’s boots, drop Hank a line.

The band’s latest tour dates are as follows:

Oct. 14 House of Rock (w/ Matt Hole and Vatos Locos), Corpus Christi
Oct. 15 Numbers, Houston (Westheimer Street Fest)
Oct. 18 Lucy’s, San Marcos
Oct. 19 Red Eyed Fly, Austin
Oct. 29 Halloween Film Festival, Houston
