In 2011 Apple released the iPad2, we witnessed the capture of Osama bin Laden and Megan Fox was replaced in Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon and no one noticed.  Wheat continue to forge their way through the treacherous terrain of the music industry on tuesday, September 6th with the first of three Limited Edition cd singles: the used to be in love blues/house of kiss. 

Each feature 2 new tracks and hand-screened artwork and liner notes.  Subsequent months will see the release of two additional cd singles and will culminate in a yet-untitled full length in Limited Edition, along with hand-screened artwork, liner notes and exclusive downloads; part making their way past the weird and the low points of the object, part they want you along for the ride, glad to say that you were there when it happened.  

2009 brought us the completion of the Large Hadron Collider, H1N1, the innovative music video game Living 2 Die Vs. Dying to Live, the 3 CD reissue of Medeiros, Hope & Adams (with the unreleased 30 Minute Theatrik) and band favorite White Ink, Black Ink. Together with current band member luke hebert and engineered by Ray jeffery [bostones, the beatings]. Simple, consice, and rockin' and rollin'. "The punchiest, most disciplined exercise in pop-frosted skronk indulgence you're likely to hear." Bullz-Eye 

2007 brought us Apple's iPhone, the massive Chinese toy recall, Shrek The Third and Wheat's Every Day I Said a Prayer for Kathy and Made a One Inch Square. Some said, "a return to form," but wheat said, "same as it ever was," always refocusing the lens, always trying to find new and unique ways of delivering the love song. Spin declared: "You probably won't hear three such beautifully sweeping songs start another album this year."

2006 brought us the Nintendo Wii, Pluto's downgrade to a dwarf planet, Miami Vice to the big screen and Wheat's mini-album That's Exactly What I Wanted… Exactly That.  A 5 song program that featured some of Wheat's most experimental music to date. Aversion declared, "Wheat conquers everything with this ep, from start to finish."

In 2004, 2.1 million people saw Win a Date with Tad Hamilton and heard "Some Days".  That same year movie goers heard "I Met a Girl" in A Cinderella Story and in 2005 "Don't I Hold You" in Elizabethtown; all from 2003's Per Second, Per Second, Per Second… Every Second.

2003 brought us SARS, Prometea, the first cloned horse, Governor Schwarzenegger and Wheat's Per Second, Per Second, Per Second… Every Second. Signed to Aware/Columbia and based on their growing momentum, the band share stages with the likes of The Flaming Lips, Liz Phair, John Mayer, etc. 

1999 brought us Napster, MySpace, the first in a series of disappointing Star Wars prequels and Wheat's Hope & Adams; the lush and yearning indie-pop classic. Recorded and mixed by Dave Fridmann (Flamings Lips, MGMT, weezer), and featuring "Don't I Hold You," the album received extensive worldwide critical praise, garnering 4 star reviews in Melody Maker, Q, and also making end of year lists in both select and Uncut magazines. Rollings Stone's Dave Fricke called the music, "beautiful murk..."

1998 brought us Google, Eddie Murphy's Dr. Doolittle, Apple's iMac, and Wheat's Medeiros; recorded in Providence with Dave Auchenbac
