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.
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:
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.
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.
Also, all of our tour dates in May with The World is a Beautiful Place and I am No Longer Afraid to Die and Dads have been announced. More information on individual shows coming soon. For now, here’s the final flier featuring beautiful photographs of my bedroom and our van.
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.
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.
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.

Additionally, we will be announcing some tour dates tomorrow as well. Stay posted.
All unshipped mailorder will be going out this week, ideally. Sorry, we’re really really busy.
The next show we’re playing in Boston (and the only one for quite a while) is the great SMASH IT DEAD FEST, running the weekend of March 29th through the 31st. I’m going to quote the S.I.D. page for some basic information: Smash It Dead Fest began in 2011 as a weekend-long benefit for the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center (BARCC). In addition to raising funds for this crucial organization, the Smash it Dead collective aspires to use punk music, workshops, and discussion as means for spreading awareness about sexual assault. We hope to open doors of communication within our community to deal with these issues in a better, more sustainable way.
There are a lot of excellent bands playing and the whole festival has a great mission towards one of the largest issues we face in society today in addition to benefitting a great organization. If you seek more information, check out the Facebook event. We’re very excited that we were asked to play and we hope to see you there.
In addition, we just got added to this year’s Pouzza Fest in Montréal, which will mark the first time we’ve played outside of the United States. We are playing on Sunday, May 19th alongside legendary bands such as Grade and Crime In Stereo, among others, and we are very excited to be a part of this event. You can see set times and lineups here. We will be announcing more dates relatively soon.
We also just got the reference master of our new record (split 7″ with Stresscase) and it sounds very good. We hope you all will enjoy it. Stay posted on Mayfly Records for that. You can still pick up copies of our first 7″ from Solidarity Recordings and Unfun Records if you’re in Europe, or A Mountain Far still has some first press copies in Canada.
Finally, here is a recent video of a show we played in Ithaca, NY in December:
More to come soon, as always. Thank you for the support.
