obscurity in moderation

the show with blacklisted went really well. thanks to everyone for coming out. we leave for tour in 2 and a half weeks. i love alabama, but it's been 6 months since i've been away from it for longer than a week and i'm itching for tour. it'll be an interesting first tour, but i can't wait.

show today

so our demos are finished and we're technically "releasing" them tonight at the blacklisted show. the recordings are rough, but that's how a demo should be, or so i hear. the lyrics are included in the package. everyone should try and swing by cave9 tonight and get one.

we're playing with blacklisted, which i am really psyched about for several reasons; playing hardcore shows always sounds like a good idea whenever a band i'm in gets asked to. blacklisted is a good band, in my opinion, doing seemingly inventive things for a scene that is steadily obtuse and/or disappointing normally. it's cool. i like it when a band takes popularity and does something worthwhile, and it seems like that's what they're doing.

also playing is trample (whom i know nothing about), legion (who are awesome), and someone else from kansas? maybe? regardless, you should come. it'll help cave9, make mike parsons happy, and you might get a p.s. eliot demo WHICH features the one and only mary stephens on recorder. just saying.

forget ahead

because band websites are obsolete, a blog is seemingly the only way to actually talk about what's going on in the brains and lives of a band. our lyrics aren't always overtly political, and we think it's important to have an outlet to talk about those sorts of things. think of it as discretionary ventilation? yeah, that sounds about right.

so we have a demo that we made in my basement last weekend. its got 5 songs, out of about 8 that we have written. some people might think that it's a little naive of us to tour on 8 songs and a shitty van and little experience/money/etc. but i consider it kind of necessary. we have the time and we have this sort of super-zealous, enthusiastic outlook on doing a lot with what we have right now, so why not?

tour starts on may 14th, the dates are:
may 14th-baton rouge
may 15th- hang out in austin
may 16th- hang out in austin
may 17th- ft worth
may 19th- el paso
may 20th- santa fe
may 23rd- riverside, ca
may 24th- los angeles
may 27th- oklahoma city
may 28th- atlanta
may 29th- nashville

we'll all be posting everyday, keep a look out.
