Milemarker Touring In August and September

Catherine Lewis reports:
Milemarker has just released a six-song CD EP called Satanic Versus on Jade Tree, half of whose songs were recorded by Steve Albini, and the other half by Milemarker themselves with ProTools (according to Albini, this is where the 'Satanic' part of the title comes from). The EP contains a video for the song "New Lexicon" as well as a few live videos and computerized files for two songs, for those of you who wanna get your remix on. This EP will be released on vinyl by the Czech label Day After on October 10th (presumably without the videos). After the U.S .tour, Milemarker will be touring Europe in October.

Along for the first eight dates are ex-Hurl rockers Taking Pictures, whose debut CD Friends Are Ghosts is scheduled for a November 2002 release on My Pal God Records. Tour dates (all dates through September 6th with Taking Pictures):
