Here’s the message from Mike:

Hi! You good? Good. Hi. Hey! This is Mike! Thank you for being there and reading this, and for being kind, thoughtful and courteous and for enjoying finely wrought works of arcane provenance.

I got a new such work ready for you, right now: it's called You Must Be This Tall, my new solo album containing 12 songs, 44 minutes of music, three-quarters of it instrumental and all-quarters of it designed to tickle a special spot in your head that just doesn't get tickled enough.
The release date is August 27, but you can pre-order it here and get an instant download of the album. You can also check out a collage of song samples there.

It's pretty out there. But in a good way, I think - I'm really thrilled with this album. I think all of the composition, arranging, production and playing is strong and it all just comes off right, to my ears.
There's a lot of guitar playing on it, a lot of crazy writing, and we focused hard on doing mixes which got the best out of the arrangements. A number of people who don't lie to me have said they think it might be my best album. I sure can't say, but I know I really enjoy hearing it.

I play a lot of the instruments myself, and also had some killer assistance on key tracks from Bryan Beller, Marco Minnemann, Joe Travers, Rick Musallam, Missy Andersen and Andy Partridge.

It is a real pleasure to bring you You Must Be This Tall and I hope you dig the hell out of it.
