The Post Script has been going through a whirlwind of change recently.
First and foremost... Blain Crawford has decided to leave The Post Script. This was a personal decision, and certainly not because of fighting or ill-will. We will always love Blain as a brother and wish him all the best in his future endeavors. Blain is currently playing with The Waldemere Revival. We know this probably comes as a huge shock to everyone, and it was certainly a huge shock to us as well. The truth of the matter is that even though the three of us are the best of friends (and will continue to be so), we simply did not have the same goals and motivations. These differences were holding each of us back from realizing our full potential. We have always understood this, and have been working EXTREMELY hard to reconcile them, but in the end it just didn't work out. As was stated earlier, we don't want anyone to think that there is any bad blood between us and Blain, and this decision is truly best for everyone involved. We are immensely upset to see him go, but can't wait to see what he has to show the world with his new band, and can't wait to show the world what we have to offer as well!
Secondly, because of Blain's departure, Matt and myself have sat down and given some serious thought to what we want to do and where we want to go with this band. In short, we decided to regroup and kick more ass than ever before. We will be doing quite a few shows acoustic until we find another member who fits into the group, but have no plans of slowing down... in fact quite the opposite. We have begun working with a publicist to begin working our music into college radio stations, and will be considerably more focused on the quality over the quantity of the shows we play. In fact, just this week we have been featured on the two biggest commercial radio stations in Indianapolis, Radio Now 100.9 and X103.
Third, at the request of Radio Now, we have written a Colts theme song that will be posted shortly to our website for free download. We had a lot of fun doing it, and it's truly hilarious. It is also being featured on Radio Now every Friday during Indy's #1 morning show, The Scotty Show. You can download the song by pasting this url into your web browser...

Lastly, since we are not going to be as focused on playing shows every weekend, we plan to write a LOT more music, and actually have two new songs already finished. We will be featuring one of them at this Saturday's Battle of Birdys performance. We play at 8:30, but get there early as the show is expected to sell out. We will be releasing an EP with three new songs on it this coming winter, and will let you know more details as the process unravels. We have already recorded the instrumentals to them (Careful Repair, Ordinary People, and Tropical Storms) and are just waiting on dates at the studio to open up to finish the vocals.
I'm going to end this blog the same way I started it... The Post Script is going through a whirlwind of change. BUT, what doesn't kill you, only makes you stronger... and we already feel we have grown through this experience and want everyone to know that we are not giving up, we are not slowing down, and we only plan to move forward better, faster, and stronger.
