    Thanks eadric! Glad you like it!

    Here's a link to Deep Cuts #146 if anyone is interested. "Routine Maintenance" is the first song, played; starts right up just after the intro medley theme song stuff:

    Thanks Neil!

    Yes, we're slowly starting to schedule shows. You can check bubblemath.com for updates. Right now we have one on 10JUN, one on 22JUL, and one on 29JUL. But we'll be steadily adding more.

    a LOVELY review from Goldmine:

    Re-emerging with their first new album in fifteen years, Minnesota prog monsters Bubblemath continue down much the same path as last time around (2002’s Such Fine Particles of the Universe, in case you’re keeping score), but all those years of waiting still don’t prepare you for a soundscape that can swing from Yes-sy pastures to growly Heep vox, and never once sounded rushed. Or even Styxed.

    All manner of minds have been exercised trying to visualize where prog would have gone had exhaustion, punk rock, and a desperate need to escape the genre not conspired to rip its heart out, somewhere around 1975.

    Not until the emergence of Bubblemath, however, did any suggestions really seem to fit… too many attempts to either emulate the old, or completely redesign its parameters left us swimming helplessly in a sea of cosmic mushroom soup. (And not even the fun mushrooms).

    Bubblemath, however, hit the nail on the head, and they continue to do so today, with an album that could never have been released at the time, but if you follow an imaginary lineage from then-till-now, Edit Peptide is exactly where we should be today.

    Indeed, with “Avoid that Eye Candy,” they’ve even included a prospective hit single!

    Wow, I cannot wait for this!

    Incredibly ugly cover art, in my opinion, but I'll still get this of course.

    Fair enough, Steve-O. And like I said, I'll still get it.

    Sorry I haven't picked up on the clues though. If it was on social media, I don't hang out on there very much.

    It had better be textured like that other Bubblemath cover!

    I got a laugh out of that meme from Bandcamp!

    I must have missed some myself! I only saw one I think. I can't quite remember it, but it made me laugh mostly because now I'm getting memes from my 13-yo son and from you!

    You totally turned me down when I rightfully demanded a new album.

    I still don't have a clue what's going on, but it's really funny so I don't mind

    I loved the one where the Bubblemath guy was giving looks to the Turf Ascension hottie while his gf (Edit Peptide) was annoyed. But I didn't quite get it. I thought Turf Ascension might be a new Cunei band that the guys in Bubblemath would like..

    But this is better news. Peptide was probably my album of the year for 2017, so looking I'm very much looking forward to this one.

    Agreed, and Edit Peptide was indeed my favorite album of 2017. Played that thing to death, and still love it.

    It is very nice and good to hear of a new and upcoming Bubblemath rock record album.




    So am I right to assume that indeed it was the usual circumstance facilitating those 15 years in-between the first two - i.e. education, dayjobs, wife or girlfriends, kids, mortgage, garden, hammock and perhaps even a funny/stupid hat or something? Or doesn't this last part somehow count for anything anymore?

    I'm buying anyhow, of course.
