We are trying to decide if it is logistically possible to get back together and write a new Ativin record (we all WANT to). We have (graciously) gotten Jonothan Ford (Unwed Sailor/EDM/Roadside Monument) to join us as co-writer and bassist (with of course, Dan Burton) if the project does materialize. We are currently not on the "active" Secretly Canadian roster, so if anyone has any suggestions, we eagerly await them! Chris
I've also been listening to Unwed Sailor and Early Day Minors for a long time, since high school... It's really cool to meet and talk with you, Ativin and Roadside Monument have been extremely important to me through much of my life. Just wanted to say a last "cheers" before I take up this whole board with my rambles. Take care and best of luck with your newest venture! (By the way, I'm a staff writer at PopMatters-- if you want anything reviewed, feel free to send things over to our editor, Sarah Zupko.)
i know those fellers well and regrettably, i don't think they are getting back together. in the meantime, check out Doug's band, Patrol and Jonathon's band, Unwed Sailor & Native Lights! also Early Day Miners is no more as well...
Awesome! I have been an Ativin fan for almost 10 years (since junior high). In the meantime I'll seek out Pardoner, and if you know the guys from Roadside Monument, please tell them to get back together too.
well thank you for saying so. i really appreciate that. i suppose weirder this have happened. right now dan is in grad school and i am working on my new project Pardoner. i will certainly let you know if something comes to fruition!
