Our next record, "Complekt", is off to be pressed! We're psyched about the artwork, which was masterfully done by Kevin Elbert. There's still no word on an official release date, but we'll keep you updated.
In the meantime, you can look for a track from it coming soon in The Hartford Courant which will be accompanied by an interview with Aaron. We're also working on a video for the title track which should be ready
We have some really fun shows coming up including Willimantic Records' 4th anniversary party with Major Stars, The Mountain Movers, and Becky Kessler on 2/13, Bar in New Haven with The Soft Moon on 2/17, a WHUS Radio interview/live session on 3/6, and Cafe 9

We're playing a few shows coming up. The first is this super cool show at Best Video on Friday, January 15th with Colorguard/Lituya Bay.
Should be fun! We're also playing at Willimantic Records' 4th anniversary show at Willimantic Records on February 13th (we go on around 4pm) with best buds The Mountain Movers,
as well as the venerable Major Stars, and Becky Kessler. We'll be in New Haven
a few days later on the 17th for a FREE show at Bar opening for The Soft Moon. Hope to see you there!
Our new EP "Body Diffuser" is up for pre-sale on landing.bandcamp.com. This is our first release with new member John Miller and we couldn't be more excited and proud of it. We're hoping to raise some money for our trip to Denver for Goldrush Fest, so if you feel like making a purchase, now's the time!
The cassette, featuring artwork from Farbod Kokabi and Lee Summers (two of the chiefs at Geographic North), is limited to 50 copies and the digital version includes a lengthy bonus track.
We hope you enjoy the new music!!

We're happy to announce that we'll be playing with WORKING, Sweet John Bloom, and Palace People at AS220 in Providence, RI on June 13th! Here's the
event page. Hope to see you there!
Our recent show with Acid Mothers Temple and ST37 was amazing! We had a ton of fun playing with special guest Kryssi Battalene.
AMT and ST37 melted faces and blew the doors off Cafe 9. We recorded our set and posted some songs from it to our Soundcloud.

Since the last update we've been pretty busy. Our next album is getting close to completion and we couldn't be more psyched about it. Recording at John's beautiful studio has been a real treat and things are sounding pretty nice so far. No word on release date or anything, but we'll keep you updated.
We're playing some shows! No Joy has been in constant rotation in the Snow household so we were very pumped to be invited to open for them in Hamden at The Outer Space Ballroom on March 28th (here's the event page). We're also playing with Acid Mothers Temple and ST37 on May 4th at Cafe 9 (here's the event page). Our good friend Kryssi Battalene is joining us for that one, so it should be super fun!
One last bit of news- Our collaboration with Mark Dwinell (Bright, Forma, Nonloc), recorded way back in 2004 is finally released via our Soundcloud page. We hope you enjoy it!
In frustrating news- Bandcamp lists our upcoming shows automatically from Songkick.com, but due to the fact that there is a new band called The Landing from Brooklyn, there are a lot of incorrect listings that pop up. We wish they'd change their band name, of course, but can't really afford all the fees associated with trademarking our name and forcing them to change theirs, so I'll do my best to fix the incorrect listings as they happen.
We'll keep our Facebook events up to date and you can always check the "shows" page on our website for the correct info.

Heligator Records has just released our new single "Traveling". The original version of "Traveling" was released way, way back in 1998 on our very first cassette, the "Demonstration Tape" in an edition of maybe 10 copies. When Ryan from Heligator contacted us about submitting something we thought it'd be a great opportunity to give this old Landing track a new life.
We're proud to be joining an amazing roster of bands that have contributed tracks for a great cause, including CLIPD BEAKS, Zijnzijn Zijnzijn!, Dura, and lots more.
Here's some info about Heligator Records: "Your purchase of this track goes directly to the Malindza Refugee Camp library and librarians. Funds go to keeping the lights on, repairs and providing a small stipend for the refugee volunteer librarians. Rarely do you get so rewarded for your generosity. But...here we are.
Please check out the Malindza Refugee Camp Blog for updates on happenings at the library.
In case you hadn't heard, we have a new band member! His name is John Miller and he's awesome. He'll be playing drums with us at our first show
as a four piece this Friday at The Flywheel in Easthampton, MA. It'll be our last show for a while as we try to finish album
Here's a clip of John playing "Hold Me Under" with us...

Geographic North just got featured in Vice Magazine! Landing got a nice mention and Tinniens (Daron and Aaron) got a supremely flattering review!
From the review of "Dub Guns"- "For once, a composition that came from shoegaze that doesn’t sound like the dumb younger brother of Slowdive who only ever listened to bands trying to copy Slowdive."
Welcome to the new landingsite.net! We've got some shows coming up including a show in Boston with Mahogany and Infinity Girl
at PA's Lounge on September 13th and a show at The Flywheel in Northampton with Major Stars, Egg/Eggs, and Gilded on October 3rd which will
be a benefit for Karl Hendricks.
Our show on October 3rd will be the first show with our new drummer, John Miller! John is a veteran of a number of great bands including Snake Oil, The Mountain Movers, and Titles.
We're really excited about having live drums again and couldn't ask for a nicer, more talented guy to make music with.
Album #9 is in the works! Hoping for a 2015 release.
Here is an interview Aaron did with QRD about guitars and amps and stuff.
