CLICK HERE TO PRE-ORDER “NOTHING WORKS”
STREAM FIRST SINGLE “SINK OR SWIM” HERE!
Here are two videos from our last show of the May tour with Holy Death! HOLY SHIT, WE ROCK!!!
A very important thank you has to be passed to the film maker, Emmanuel Villanueva Cruz II, who not only took a ton of awesome pictures but also put together these two videos!
Without any further ado, please enjoy the songs! The first is a tune from our pending full length “Nothing Works” and the second is a brand new!!!
She’s Crying in the Mirror
We made it home after another short tour! The only issues we had the whole way was a very heated argument over how the opening riff to “No One Else” goes, weither or not Steely Dan is a valid form of music (which opened up a new segment of tour we like to call “Dad’s on Dan“) and a very drunk night in Lowell that led to a viewing of The Shining that lasted all night/next day thanks to a endless loop DVD player.
Looks like we are done for the summer when the road is concerned. We have a show coming up on July 2nd at the Barbary in Philadelphia, but no road plans.
This doesn’t mean we won’t be busy. Lots of things needing focusing on including finishing up the much delayed “Nothing Works” LP, weeding through demos in NH for the follow up album, and planning a couple weekends in September with a bunch of bands that mean the world to us!
There are some amazing newly released music from bands you should be listening to this summer as you burn yourself out on the “much anticipated/pitchfork worshipped” major releases…
Check out these bands:
Now, that’s all we’ll give you, go out and find some on your own…damnit! Also, if you have music you would like us to hear that you think is most excellent, feel free to email us at email@example.com or simply put a link on our guest book!
Remember, any good art is a two sided conversation, so, don’t sit there with your head on your desk…raise your god damn hand!
See you all very soon!
First order of business, thank you everyone who made this last tour amazing! We had the best time playing for and with some of the raddest humans on the planet! We are not worthy…
