Back from tour, lots of things to talk about!

Admittedly, with the 50 millions sites we have to update all the time, this site gets the short end of the stick.  I am going to try and change that, but no promises.

First off, we had an incredible time in the West Coast, and we are hoping to make it happen more often than once every 5 1/2 years.  Thanks for making it special!

When we were over in Nevada, we got a chance to stop by Punks in Vegas, and they were kind enough to record a stripped-down version of “The Only One Who Could Ever Reach You” from our 7″ on Topshelf Records called On Time Spent Waiting or Placing the Weight of the World on the Shoulders of Those You Love the Most.  Watch it here:

In other news, we have about 9 songs already recorded, all going to various projects like splits, comps, etc.  Expect news on those soon.

The biggest news has to be that we are going to be writing for our next full length in a few weeks.  We are beyond excited for that, and we will keep you updated as we go into that.

Finally, we are hitting the road again in May, kicking it off with Bled Fest in Michigan, then a week in Canada.  Date will be posted soon.  We are also playing Stay Sweet Fest and Weapons of Mass Creation fest, in Virginia and Ohio, respectively.

In the meantime, head over to our brand new BigCartel store under the store tab.  We just put up shirts and posters along side the vinyl and cds.  Go nuts!
