Right Now, three and a half years before the end of the world, rushing in atop a great (ADJECTIVE) tornado, the (INSERT BAND NAME HERE) have arrived, with new songs of (NOUN) and (NOUN). Composed of two (WORD FOR REDNECK RELATIVES), reputed to have been conceived in a hailstorm during the largest trailer fire of the century, and two other (DEROGATORY TERM FOR WHITE PEOPLE), both former Jesus impersonators with the Father Hanna Traveling Holy Land Extravaganza—with such divine origins, it is no surprise that the band spends little time, as we say, "finding their sound." They simply create it.

Behind the (MUSIC INDUSTRY WORD FOR MUSIC) is a passionate, dynamic force that tosses grooves around like the ocean waves, and blends genres fluidly, with a keen respect both for the past--the depth of the blues, the energy and abandon of classic rock--and the modern, displaying a love for and mastery of the joyous bounce manifested in pop perfection. This is all new, with the songs capture the transience of our age while keeping the mind and body solidly in a moment of present abandon. However, as we all know, what is here today will not be tomorrow. Please, for your own sake, enjoy (INSERT BAND NAME HERE) before the world ends.

Stay Out Late is ultimately, the end result of of understanding who we are, and more importantly, who we are not.

This will be our 15th year as a band, and our 5th record overall. In the years preceding the making of this record, we all had to define what it meant for us to be happy making music. There are certain mechanisms and tropes we all fall into as a result. And as hard as we may try to emulate what we consider to be higher art, or rather, classic music; we always end up with a Buxton record.

Sergio couldn't write for almost 2 years after 'Half A Native'. The answers to "why" had run dry. We all saw each other, hung out and everything was like normal. I can't really pinpoint the moment it all made sense again. The question had suddenly changed to "why not" and we were back in the studio making demos. There was a lurking sense that nobody would ever hear these songs, and that lead to a sort of creative charge I'm not sure we'd really experienced before. All ideas were on the table, and more importantly they stayed on the table.

There are a handful of truly great masterpieces and the attempt of achieving that is one of the most daunting and exhausting pursuits any artist can take on. In the van we're constantly educating ourselves and finding new and in many cases old points of inspiration. Whether it be Mark Hollis, HC McEntire, Micky Newbury or rediscovering the genius of Bette Midler, we find ourselves at the mercy of our own limitations of expression. Yet somehow in our most vulnerable project, we're simultaneously the most comfortable in our skin as we've ever been.

The core of record is about being in it for the long haul, looking back, and being able to accept it all.
We can only hope that the listener can in some way share and make tangible the joy that went into making this record.
