    Celebrating 13 yrs of Obscurity
    You may have already heard that I've decided to end Casiotone for the Painfully Alone.  I'd just like to clarify that this doesn't mean that I'm quitting music.  I love writing & recording songs, & I hope to make lots more records in my lifetime.  But, after nearly thirteen years of being the dude from Casiotone for the Painfully Alone, I'm ready for a fresh start & a new challenge.  So, after December 5, 2010 (the thirteen year anniversary of my first show), I'm throwing out the old songs & I'm trying something new.  I'll have more news about new projects & plans in the coming months. 

    Between now & December 5, I'm going to try to play as many Casiotone for the Painfully Alone shows as I can.  In September & October, I'll be touring the United States & Canada with some good friends from Melbourne, Australia.  They're called Otouto & they are so great.  Those tour dates are below.  Later in October & on into November, I'll be touring Europe & the United Kingdom.  That tour is still being booked, but I should have the dates ready to share in a couple of weeks.  I'm coming home for Thanksgiving, & then I'm going to try to do something extra special for the big thirteen year anniversary grand finale.  I'm not exactly sure what it'll be yet, but I'll let you know as soon as I figure it out.

    I imagine I'll be repeating this sentiment a lot between now & December, but thank you so, so much to everyone who has been so supportive of Casiotone for the Painfully Alone over the past thirteen years.  I never would have started playing shows or making records without the encouragement of some great friends, & it's blowing my ever-loving mind how many more friends I've made through music over the years.  Seriously, thank you.

    Web shop open for business! Plus a new 7"!
    Dear friends,

    I am writing to tell you that the merch shop is once again OPEN FOR BUSINESS!!!  I have shirts, tote bags, CDs, vinyl & posters available for sale, including this brand new single:


    CASIOTONE FOR THE PAINFULLY ALONE- INSTRUMENTALS #2
    random colored vinyl 7" in a boring white sleeve (Stationary Heart Recordings)

    A1. tomjustice_instr
    B1. whitejetta_instr
    B2. whitecorolla_instr

    Do you like instrumentals!? Well perfect. Here are some really nice vocal-free
    versions of extremely popular Casiotone for the Painfully Alone songs for A)
    singing along with B) remixing C) taking it easy to. I'm proud to have
    co-released this record with Stationary Heart Recordings, who will also have
    this single available through their website, which is
    http://stationaryheart.com/. That means you can order your copy along with a
    bunch of other Casiotone stuff, OR along with a bunch of nice Stationary Heart
    stuff, which will soon include a couple of Casiotone shirts, by the way! So,
    your choice! You won't be able to find this record in shops, though. It's mail
    order or merch tables, folks. Did I mention there are 500 copies?

    So here's the shop! http://www.cftpa.org/shop.htm

    That's it for now!

    Bye,
    Owen
