Ooops, haven’t updated this since September.. here we goo -
We are excited to announce that our new 7inch, Tightrope Walker, will be out March 20th on Jump Start Records! The 2-song vinyl/3-song digital release was recorded by J. Robbins at his studio Magpie Cage in Baltimore this past summer. The first pressing of 500 will be available on white (100) and translucent red (400). You can pick up a special pre-order package now over at Jump Start that includes the limited edition colored vinyl of your choice, a digital download code for the record, a limited edition t-shirt (only available with this pre-order), a poster, and a pin pack. You will also automatically be entered to win a free test pressing of the record when you pre-order. If you’re not into all the goodies (because you’re dumb), you can just grab the vinyl/immediate digital download here if you’d like.
This record is also being released in Europe by Jump Start’s brothers from across the pond, Ass Card Records. They have put out a ton of great releases over the years, everything from A Wilhelm Scream to Kill Your Idols, and a lot of the Jump Start catalog. We are stoked to have it available for any friends overseas that are looking to pick it up.
We were also in Jump Starts most recent newsletter as the featured band of the month. We’re very happy to be putting out music with these peckerwoods. They are doing a lot of awesome things this year, from a double-LP by Belvedere to the new MxPx LP on vinyl. Keep an eye out for all these awesome things and more.
We are in the process of shooting a music video for Tightrope Walker with our buddy Samuel Gursky. Sami the Snake (Smalls, Bebe-Boi) has been one of our closest friends for quite a while. He has done tours with us, booked us local shows, and also happens to be a very talented film editor/producer. He’s got a bunch of awesome projects in the works right now, including a documentary with the Bamboozle - The Gursky Project and a documentary on the Brooklyn Rocksteady scene. Definitely check those out.
Anyway, we began work on the video last weekend and will be finishing it up this weekend. It was a ton of fun so far and we are excited to see the end result. It basically just captures what happens when a few All-American men hangout in close quarters for too long. Smelt like farts and butt the entire time. It should be out sometime in early March to coincide with the release of the record.
Lastly, we are happy to say that we are playing Pouzza Fest in Canada this May! The fest will take place May 18th to 20th in downtown Montreal, and headliners include Lagwagon, Hot Water Music, Less Than Jake, The Bouncing Souls, The Suicide Machines, The Lawrence Arms, Naked Raygun & a million other amazing bands. This fest we be insane and we are so pumped to be a part of it.
Also on the way, are two other equally awesome fests that we will be playing, Getter Better Fest 2 in New Hampshire and Stay Sweet Fest 2 in Virginia. Get Better will take place in Keene the first weekend of April; and Stay Sweet in Richmond the second weekend in April. Both of these fests are stacked with awesome bands from around the country. We will be doing some other regional dates around Get Better Fest with our little dingleberry boys in Aspiga. As well as a show with them, and our Long Island homies State Lines and Censors in Philly the day before Stay Sweet. Details on all of these dates shortly.
Alrighty.. think that’s it for now. We are stoked for this year, should be a lot of fun. We have a bunch of other stuff in the works too, including some more fests and hitting up most of this country before the end of this year. In the meantime, here is an interview from last month with Latency Magazine. Wipe your butt.
