In case you didn’t notice, Cerce is dead. Cerce will always be dead. Cerce will never be a band ever again nor will we ever collectively play music in the future. It’s over and has been for a year now. All potential was completely exhausted and we could no longer function to create music together. For an account of why Cerce is dead and why it shouldn’t affect you personally, you can read this blog post I wrote recently.

TIME WARP TO PRESENT DAY…

4/5ths of the members of Cerce renamed the band and started playing new music under the name lovechild. lovechild is still very active and will continue to be. If you liked the music Cerce created during our short existence, chances are you’ll might like lovechild as well unless you really hate us which is also totally fine.

We released our first record as lovechild, “In Heaven, Everything is Fine.”, on Mayfly Records in March 2014. You can order it from Mayfly, Deathwish, RevHQ, amongst other distributors. We are currently writing and recording for a few future releases as well so stay posted.

All of the current members of lovechild (and likewise: most of Cerce) are also playing in the indie rock / dreampop band Burglary Years, which has been a thing since 2011 and you may have seen us post about it in the past. The debut Burglary Years LP, which has been in production for the past two years, will be released ideally by the end of 2014.

I uploaded every single Cerce flier I could find here. There are a few missing due to the layout of Facebook events changing and those fliers being gone forever unless someone saved them, but I think this is a roughly 90-95% complete archive.

Also, I am uploading every Cerce recording here as a hard-archive rather than Bandcamp. This webpage will expire in 2015 which is a-okay because it deserves to, but you can still browse it in the meantime. I am also currently remixing and remastering both Teen Bible and our side of the Leer split as I stumbled upon the Pro Tools sessions recently on an old external hard drive and decided to do them sonic justice. I will probably update this post when that happens.

Adieux, the final Cerce record, is still not quite done. It’s pretty much 98% there, but honestly working on that record makes me feel super uncomfortable and it’s very difficult to make progress with. We recorded it over a year ago to this day so maybe if I keep telling myself I’ll finish it, I will. I’m aiming to randomly upload it to Bandcamp sometime within the next few months when I have more free time. It is NOT up on my priority list right now. There will be no physical release of the album and Becca still isn’t on it which is why we still refer to it as a C_RC_ record. It was intended to be a Cerce record and definitely doesn’t have anything to do with lovechild but shit hit the fan, obviously. Stay posted for that, too, but not too posted or else you’d probably just get anxious waiting.

Thank you for the continued support. Thank you so much for continuing to care about the music we all created as Cerce. Thank you for continuing to support us moving forward as lovechild.

P.S.: Please, for the love of all things holy, never pay more than $8-10 for an old Cerce shirt. I see people trying to make a profit off used and old band merchandise all the time and it makes me sick. Merch flippers are fucking con artists.

May 2013 Tour

May 6th, 2013

Hello,

We leave for tour in about a week, in which we’ll mostly be traveling to cities we’ve never played in before. May 18th is our home show at the Cambridge Elks, so looks like you now have plans for next Saturday night.

5/18/2013

Additionally, we are playing at the University of New Hampshire on Friday with our friends in HOST. It will be our first time playing in New Hampshire in about a year (and probably the last time for a while, as well).

After this tour, we will be taking a break for the rest of the summer, so here are all of our upcoming dates and hopefully you can make it out to a show:

April 30th, 2013

In a month, we are playing a show in New Bedford with our friends Centuries (on tour from Florida) and Raindance. This will be our last show in Massachusetts until next fall. Email zachxweeks@gmail for more information.

Additionally, we will be entering the studio with Alex Garcia-Rivera in a few weeks to begin tracking for our full length record to be put out by the great Mayfly Records. Stay posted.

Hello,

We are making some new merchandise available. Since we have had an overwhelming amount of requests for them over the past year or so, we’re going to be printing crewneck sweatshirts of the “baby doll” design and they will only be available to order online from our Bandcamp. Here is the link if you are interested.

Hey,

Thanks a lot to everyone who came out to the shows this past weekend and to Smash It Dead. We had a great time and it was excellent playing music in both new and familiar places.

Here is a video of us playing at Today’s Mixtape Fest in Long Island:

MARCH 27TH, 2013

Here is a song from our upcoming split with Stresscase. This is from a compilation / first release by Heads Up Records, a new DIY label a few of our friends started up so please support them and their endeavors. We have a lot of friends on this compilation as well: William James, Native Wildlife, Aviator, among others.

March 26th, 2013

Hello and greetings to everyone,

  1. First of all, we are only going to be playing in Boston a couple of times for the next six months or so, one occasion is Smash It Dead Fest 2013 this weekend. Smash It Dead is a benefit for BARCC (Boston Area Rape Crisis Center) and and overall great cause so be sure to come out and support bands from all over and educate yourself on sexual assault. We are playing the Sunday show (3/31) and will probably be playing a few new songs as well. We are also playing a show in Boston on May 18th but after that we probably won’t be around for a while.
  2. Our good friend Nick has recently started a D.I.Y. label called Heads Up Records and their first release is going to be a compilation featuring thirty songs, some of which are by friends of ours. We will have an exclusive unreleased track on this compilation from our split 7″ with Stresscase from California. The compilation will be posted online tomorrow so be sure to check it out.

  3. Additionally, we will be announcing some tour dates tomorrow as well. Stay posted.
  4. All unshipped mailorder will be going out this week, ideally. Sorry, we’re really really busy.

Thank y’all.
