Hey guys!

Welcome to the March 2012 newsletter :) Hope everyone had a great February and is gearing up for an awesome spring! The weather has been warming up here in Athens, GA, the cook-outs are starting up, and that general 'yawn & stretch' that society goes through after awakening from the winter hibernation should be full swing soon :) Very much looking forward to getting outside and having some fun in the sun :)

Speaking of fun in the sun. this is the first time in five years we won't be making the trip down to Austin, TX for the annual SXSW festivities...


So anyways, whether you'll be down in TX or just hangin' back, the seemingly slow pace of January and February is about to get replaced with the hustle and bustle of spring time! And we're not the type to let the party go on without us, so we're going to have a little party of our own; a party for the Aeges! ;-) 
If you're wondering what the soundtrack to your spring is going to be, look no further, for it is Aeges my friend, without a doubt. Lets talk about them a bit...

 Issues Posting On Message Board!

As those of you know from last month, we launched our  new website! She's sexy AIN'T SHE. ;-) Though all things as involved as launching a completely overhauled website are bound to have a few hiccups, this deal went off relatively smooth! Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts to Black Day Creative! You guys are awesome and we appreciate all the hard work!


But anyways, like we said, there is bound to be a least a few hiccups... As many of you have noticed and gotten in touch with us about, there has been some bizarre complications with our message board.




Trust that we are on the case and all are trying to figure out the mix up as fast as possible. It's a lot of chaos to decipher gang, so it's taking a little extra eruditeness to fix. We'll get it all straightened out shortly and make sure to throw in some fun once it's all wrapped up to make up for the lag. It's been a pain for sure. One thing that several users have reported working is if you 'DELETE ALL BOARD COOKIES' at the bottom of the main index page, and then log back in.Some users have been able to continually post then without being logged out automatically when submitting a post. But unfortunately that's not working for all of the users at this time, including us   :( But again, the programmer is on the case and should have it all fixed soon, we'll keep everyone posted! 




Wrap Up!
That's going to do it for another month of our ranting and raving ;) Thanks so much as always for tuning in. If you're going to be in Austin, TX for SXSW, don't forget to check out Herra Terra at Valhalla on 3/13 - more info can be found HERE. You also get to hear a demo version of a track from the upcoming releeease at that link! And join us on Thursday at 1pm to kick off the Sheath By Sheathwest Aeges preorder party extravaganza!!! And please feel free to share this newsletter with anyone that you think could use a healthy dose of tha Sheath 411 :) Have a great March gang! Snugs and hugs!!!
