The Rugs to begin recording new album in August

We recently received word from Eric Schuchmann, guitarist and co-songwriter for The Rugs, that the group will finally head back into the studio in August to begin recording a new album. Why August? Schuchmann says the band wants to wait until after singer Matt Dampier’s wedding, which is certainly noble reasoning. There’s no official word yet on a release date, but given schedule differences, distance (singer Dampier lives in Kansas City, while the rest of the group is in Springfield) and the group’s it’s-done-when-we’re-happy-with-it nature, we wouldn’t expect a pressed copy before late 2009 or early ’10.

The band’s last release was the single “Magic 8 Ball,” released last November on Moodring Records. The last full album was 2008’s Vacuum.
