temper and hold - too soon to tell

Between 1995 and 2006, Grafton records had 11 releases.

Between 2006 and 2013?

Nothing. Radio silence. 

The era of quiet came to an end in August of 2013, when Jacob DePolitte and Paul Johnson showed up at my house and we set up our instruments to see what would happen. 

Good things are what happened. Things that made me ridiculously happy to be playing music again. 

For 7 years, I didn't know if there would ever be a Grafton records no. 12. Hell, I wasn't even sure if I wanted there to be a no. 12. Could I really be done with music?

Here in 2014, I am beyond excited to be unleashing temper and hold's first cd and answering that question with a resounding NO.

Fuck the silence: this is Grafton no. 12.
