And happy 2011. After dusting off the last bits of 2010 from our hair, we’re looking forward to a massive new year. We’re emerging from the cave. Everything looks different in the light. We blink. We stretch. Plans abound. We can only tell you about some of these plans but then this all still feels like a myth anyway so let’s just say we’ll meet you at a show someday and tell you what we were thinking.
The new record is almost done. Thank you for all the emails.
A Song Every Day
Starting Monday, our Twitter feed @Airborne_Toxic (are we saying that right? “Twit-ter?” is it a soft “W?”) will include a Song of the Day every day for the next year. Mikel will be posting these along with thoughts on them, lyrics from them, or occasionally, just vague phrases like “classic” or “this must be what it feels like to tour Spain or drive through Nebraska with a shotgun in your lap.”
There will also be links. You can follow. You can comment. You can listen to music and join in the revelry. Starting Monday, January 10th. Twitter Twhitter Twwitter.

Playing with a Huge Plucking Symphony…
A SPECIAL CONCERT WITH THE COLORADO SYMPHONY JAN 22:
In a few weeks, we’ll be joined by the Colorado Symphony Orchestra for a collaborative performance at Boettcher Concert Hall in Denver. Last year, we went down to Kentucky to perform with the Louisville Orchestra and learned, among other things, that orchestras can rock hard. We expect the Colorado Symphony to be no exception. We’ll be playing songs from both our first record and the upcoming album. See you there.
Sat Jan 22 – Denver, CO
