We had to postpone our show in Reno on Saturday… We’ve rescheduled for September 6. Greg broke his wrist a couple of months ago, and subsequently wasn’t able to do our recent Midwest/East Coast tour. Our friend Colin Delaney (from SF band The Hooks) filled in last minute and did a great job! Greg’s resting that wrist to insure he’ll be ready to tackle Europe in July…

We’ve been having some issues accessing the site, but all appears to be back to normal now (fingers crossed). Thanks to all of you who came out to any of the recent shows on our Midwest/East Coast tour with the Goddamn Gallows. We had a great time, and made some great new friends in the Goddamn Gallows… Next up, Europe in about a week!

…It’s been a while since an update, but we finally got off our asses and added a couple of shows (for this weekend, actually!) to the shows page. And, uh, that’s about it. Oh, yeah, we released a 7″ with 2 brand new songs. Well, new to you at least.
“The Librarians are Hiding Something” is an alternate-mix version of a song that will appear on our upcoming full length “Poorly Formed”, out Feb. 19 on Fat Wreck. Side B has “Rude Little Rooms”, which is the last song to be released with our beloved Spike Slawson on bass and backing vocals. See you this weekend!

We’ve posted our upcoming week-long run of the west coast, and also our European tour, which is just a few weeks away! We’ll be mixing our record in the next couple of weeks as well, so it’s been a busy time for us. By now you’ve all heard of Tony Sly’s passing. He was a good friend and label mate of ours. A father, brother, son, husband, and all around really great person. He is greatly missed, but thankfully he left a hefty amount of songs for his family and fans to remember him by. RIP Tony Sly.

Hey there everybody. Recording plans have been delayed slightly, but we’re still hoping to get our asses into the studio this summer. We’ve got 16 or so songs that are ready to go, and we’re just working on scheduling right now… Other than that, we’ve got a few shows here and there throughout the summer, and then we head out to Europe once again for the month of September.
