Still On Hold.

OTZ is still on hold while I work on my new apartment etc. I have everything ready for Volume 9, this won't be the end of OTZ. I'm going to change OTZ's mailing address. You can still mail stuff to the box 187 address for a couple months. OTZ's new address will be

Overgrown Tomb Zine
2450 Huntingdon Pike
Apt. A
Huntingdon Valley, PA 19006

There might not be a band of the week in a while. I have all the interviews for Volume 9 but I might not get around to it in a while. Busy with a new apartment which needs to be renovated before I move in. Be back at some time.
