Karen Page has checked in with the following update about the band's activity:
"So here we are. May 2010. This marks three years of karen page. Where to start. There's a lot of memories, and most of you don't give a shit. But this band started out as a fun activity between four friends. Jonny, anthony, rick, and myself. The music was pretty much a joke in the beginning. We were at the end of high school, in between bands, and we were just trying to pass the time. It was fun but the music was pretty much, well, awful. But we didn't give two shits. We played a bunch of shows on those shitty songs.
"Then the formula was changed. Anthony moved to guitar and we added a new drummer, chris. Chris was a great asset. Having him behind us helped us tremendously. It helped us tighten up. It made us feel like a band. It made us solid (well, kind of). So we recorded a 20 minute long ep entitled: ‘operator, operator, the phone is dead!’. Which we marketed as ‘the greatest album of all time.’ pffftttttt.... I listen to that record now and i can't believe how far we have come as musicians and as a band in three short years. Somehow, about a year after the release of ootpid. We got signed to Rotten Records. Someone wanted to sign us off of that ep. Pffftttttt..... Seriously though. So we singed and immediately began working new songs. More...
Karen Page has issued the following announcement about parting ways with their bassist:
"Sadly Rick has decided to leave KP. He's going to college and working full time and decided tour life isn't for him anymore. So over the next few months were going to find a full time replacement. We will have open tryouts for anyone interested. You must:
-Be 18+ and able to tour
-Have transportation to and from practice
-Having a trailer is a plus
-Tour/stage experience is necessary.
-Be a real bassist. We're not looking for a guitar player who can play a bass. Ricks gave us a big full sound while still being technical which we rely on
-If you're a douche, stay home
-You must have good reliable touring equipment or be willing to buy them. If you don't we can supply an amp for tryouts, but you'll need your own.
"Message us if you're interested."
Karen Page has issued the following update about releasing a new self-titled album:
"Hey guys, figured wed give a little insight as to whats going on over here. Not sure if anyone even reads these things. but whatever. So over the past few months we've been writing and recording our rotten records debut. Today Matt finished up the last of his vocal tracks. Tracking for this CD is DONE! We've entered the mixing and mastering stage. We got a little sample earlier, and this is Andrew at sacred sounds best work yet. The CD is sounding phenomenal. The CD is self titled, so 'Karen Page' will hit stores on Feb 16th.
"As some of you may have noticed as well, over the past few months we've went through a few lineup changes. Anthony was forced to part ways with us due to personal obligations. we wish him the best of luck in his musical career, and there are no hard feelings on either end. We have recruited Bryce Seditz formerly of Nova Prospect to fill his position on guitar duties. Also, due to time and commitment constrictions, we were forced to part ways with Chris Vogagis. Alan Cassidy (ex-the breathing process) jumped in quickly and took his spot. Alan is a great fit both musically and personally to KP, and has quickly solidified his spot. So check us out on tour this feb and again in march with Vampire Moose, Ideamen, And Polkadot Cadaver."

1. Out Of The Woodwork
