March 2010

Good day blog reading dinks of the internet. Haven’t posted in a while, been busy living in the real world. Last few months have been fun, you may have seen us play in your town. Despite hating touring in the winter (because of the whole death thing) we’ve been on the road quite a bit. A fun little run with lovers in Whiskey Trench up into their chilly province and Ottawa. Neither we, nor the van died, so it was a success. We also played three shows with UK legends Leatherface and charming French nice guys Yesterdays Ring. Again, great bands and no snow covered graves so we win again. There was also that sold out hometown rager back in January with Chuck Ragan and Tim Barry that left us all warm and fuzzy inside. Needless to say, the last few months have left us quite happy. But we’ve dropped enough names, on to business…

There is some gorgeous vinyl on the way in two short weeks. Our self titled debut full length will be available on LP by mid March 2010. The test presses have been approved and its only a matter of time. Alex over at Art of the Underground has set up a pre order option, so if you want to get a hold of the limited red pressing, pre order HERE. We’re starting to slowly assemble a ‘collection vol.1’ type thing of all our pre-LP 7”s and demos. It will (eventually) be available digitally from Juicebox, but we haven’t made any decisions about physical formats just yet. More info soon.

We’ll also continue our long running behavior of playing Toronto more than Windsor with our next show, depicted above. Stay tuned for spring / summer touring plans.

Some big news for the coming new year that we're very excited about...

-January 30th will see us playing a hometown show with Chuck Ragan, Tim Barry, and Cavaliers at the Coach and Horses. Its no secret that Hot Water Music and Avail are big influences on us, so we're ecstatic to be playing with these fellas, whose respective solo projects are fantastic as well. Don't miss the chance to see them in such a small venue.

-Early February we'll hit the road for a few shows with Whiskey Trench to celebrate the recent release of our Split 7" on Vinyl Addict records. Ottawa and Quebec, we're on our way back!

-Late February we're playing a string of shows with England's legendary Leatherface! Again, another huge influence on us. The St. Catharines date features Fucked Up as well. You will leave this show with hair on your chest.

-Our self titled CD is out now on Art of the Underground, and the LP version is off to the pressing plant. It will be available at the aforementioned shows.

For more thorough show listings and some recent reviews of the record (including a glowing review in Exclaim!) visit our myspace.

CD Release: Windsor.

Well, this is it Windsor, put your dancin' shoes on. This Friday, October 9th, we're playing at the FM Lounge to celebrate the release of our debut self titled full length CD. We'll get things rolling at 10 pm with the debut performance of Kid Brother, followed by James OL & the Villains. If you can't make it to the show, you can grab of copy of the CD at Dr. Disc or HMV.
Windsor residents should also pick up this months issue of WAMM magazine, which features a nice little article on us by Jamie Greer. A quick note on that article: Ryan Ward is the name of our bass player, and he is still very much a part of our band.
Keep in touch with our myspace for upcoming shows out of town. We've got a little run in november with Hostage Life, and have already started making plans for the new year including shows with Leatherface! Many more surprises to come.
Vinyl nerds take note, the LP will surface this fall, and the long delayed split 7" with Whiskey Trench is on its way before 2010 as well.

Windsor Show: 07.31.2009

We'll be doing a more thorough update soon regarding the release of the CD (its SO close) and our touring plans for August, but this is just a quick one for Windsor residents. We're playing a show this Friday, which will be our last local show for the summer. Its with 'Sewing With Nancie', who some of you may remember if you're old like me (they went on to become the Reason), and our friends from Edmonton 'the Famines' (ex member of the Wolfnote). Its gonna be a ripper, so be there with bells on.
