from mike baggetta regarding this "aki tour 2023" by mssv:

    "Boy am I happy to be getting back on the road with mssv real soon this fall! The more I get to make my music with Stephen Hodges and Mike Watt the more this band really feels like home to me where I can try anything. We have a brand new record coming out on BIG EGO Records, my friend Chris Schlarb's label, called 'Human Reaction' on Sept. 1 so we're hitting the trail starting Sept. 5 to bring the music out to you all for about 2 months time around the US and a couple spots in Canada even too, whoa!

    If you came to one of our shows last year on the Haru 2022 tour you heard some of the new music from this upcoming record being worked out on the road every night. By the time we got back to Long Beach to make the record right after that tour the music was in a place that I could have never imagined it getting to when I was coming up with those ideas. The advantage of getting to do music with Hodge and Watt really shows in their dedication to making the songs better every night any way they can with me and I really am forever grateful to them for that, truly!

    We'll be working out a new set of songs on this Aki Tour 2023 to be recorded right after we get back again, as well as playing the music from the 'Human Reaction' album and a few pieces from our first album 'Main Steam Stop Valve' too. And of course we'll have some surprises planned for you along the way. I think the new music we're working on shows a lot of interesting new ways of thinking about how music can be... writing song ideas in different ways for different people, thinking about rhythm and connection and words and music all aiding and abetting in the moment, trying to make music that can help... I'm happy to have this opportunity again and I can't wait to see you all out there on The Road!"
