… October 14th!!! Stay tuned for a special MySpace only pre-sale in late September.
I think our legacy towards being the most accident prone band ever is becoming a reality. Justin is currently crutch bound and was informed he is going to have to undergo knee surgery to remove a “foreign object”. He can’t extend or bend his knee which pretty much sucks. Needless to say, no more shows for a bit, including the one with Viva Hate. It’s sort of ironic that the healthiest member of the band is always the one who breaks. Anyway, time to stock up on vitamins and milk before we break anything else.
This Saturday we’re playing at Kelly’s Olympian w/ Accidental Gun Death and The Crawlers. We’re going to be playing a few songs from our upcoming album live for the very first time. Could be magic. Could be awful. Either way if you are of age check it out. Even if we crash and burn, the other bands are fantastic and can pick up the slack. The second show of note is on the 31st at Rock N Roll Pizza w/ Wednesday 13, Still Dead and Regiment 26. In our half-ass attempt at borderline bribery we’re making CD-R’s with some new songs from the upcoming album on it. First 50 people who ask for the disc will get one. Come to a show, get free music that literally no-one outside of the band has ever heard before and will hear for about 2 more months. The last Wed 13 show in Portland sold out, so get your advance tickets at TicketsWest.
I think we’re done with zombie makeup because this guy puts everyone to shame!
Despite our two cancellations last week we just added two pretty cool shows in July and August. The first is in Portland on July 31 w/ Wednesday 13. If you aren’t familiar with Wed. 13 it’s part of the Murderdolls doing punk style tunes with a B-movie flair. Word on the streets is that their shows are pretty awesome. In fact their last Portland show sold out which seems to be rare these days. The August show we added is in Salem w/ Viva Hate, which contains members of Tiger Army and Swingin’ Utters. Should be some good summer fun so check them out if you can. Lastly, if you know Dave send him an e-mail or MySpace message. He’s stuck in the Philippines for a month and we can only imagine he’s bored to tears. Last time there he saw a guy get shot. Thug life.
Sadly we have to cancel our upcoming Roseburg and Astoria shows. What really sucks is that both of these shows were reschedules from last year and now we have to “re-cancel” them. For those of you who might have discovered us recently this whole cancelling thing is actually kind of new to us. In our first 13 years as a band we had a total of three cancellations. In the past three weeks we’ve doubled that number. Awesome. Apologies to the promoters, other bands and people who might have wanted to see us. I’d say we’ll be back soon but I can’t imagine a 2nd shot to redeem ourselves will come too quickly.
Are you supposed to give your van a tip when it bends you over and screws you so well? Thanks to a starter that broke 30 miles from the venue we missed our show in Olympia this weekend. It also led to the sketchiest tow truck ride ever as shown below. Apologies to anyone who attended or cared.
We were looking up our Zombie Prom photos online and thought we’d share the whole link with everyone. Check out the photos here to see what you missed.
It’s the morning after and we must say the zombie prom was a success. Never thought we would see 400 people in a room dressed as zombies dancing to ‘Thriller’. As for the recording we’re done and have final mixes in hand. Next week it’s off to mastering and then we start the artwork and production. We’re still shooting for a September release!
Our label just unearthed another box of ‘The Return’ CD’s. If you want a copy you can get them directly from us for $8. See the merch page for more info.
