EP, Tour, & Merch Updates.

First post back in a while and there's so much to say. There has been a lot going on lately, so I figured I'd take a second of time to update everyone on how the band has been coming along. We took a small break from playing any shows to get everything settled as well as to write some new material for an upcoming one-sided 12" we're planning on releasing sometime in the near future. Still in the aggrivatingly slow process of finishing everything up before tour, but everything has surprisingly been running very smoothly. The Demo/EP layouts have been finished, hoodies, posters, and patches have been printed (shirts will be soon), and tour has been (for the most part) situated. We leave in 10 days exactly.

As for the merch, we've printed a limited run of 20 vegan straight edge pullover hoodies that will be coming along with about 45 shirts, so I'd recommend getting these fast; they WILL run out. I've also hand-screened an edition of 25 show posters for this Sunday at the Che. Our Demo/EP is going to be out of 150 with an extra 10 in exclusive colors that too will most likely be available on Sunday.

I'll leave you with an updated account of the West Coast Tour:

Dec 30th: The HQ @ Reno, Nevada.
Dec 31st: Baxter's @ Salt Lake City, Utah.
Jan 1st: Calabozo @ Boise, Idaho.
Jan 3rd: Chaos Cafe @ Portland, Oregon.
Jan 4th: Squid And Ink @ Seattle, Washington.
Jan 5th: Cretin Hop @ Spokane, Washington.
Jan 7th: TBA @ Berkeley/Oakland/San Francisco, California. (HELP NEEDED)
Jan 8th: TBA @ Santa Cruz/Watsonville, California. (HELP NEEDED)
Jan 9th: Bici Centro Bike Collective @ Santa Barbara, California.

Goodnight and thank you.

thank you, thank you, thank you.

It has been less than a day since we made our demo available for listening on the internet, and already the support has been overwhelming. We have all put a lot of time and energy into this band, and we're excited about it, but i don't think any of us expected the response we have gotten so far. For me, to know that others can relate to and enjoy our expressions of indignation is the only affirmation i need to know that this is worth doing. There is also a select group of people whose support deserves much more praise than can be put into words, let alone this blog. They know who they are, and so do we.

So, i figure i should let everyone in on some of the plans we have for the near future. Our demo now recorded, we're going to be putting together a d.i.y. packaged demo with a lyric/explanation booklet in the next couple weeks. We'll do a fairly small run of those, have a release show for it, and hopefully get going on some more shows in the area. We're also looking to do a short west coast tour sometime this winter, but that is still in the works.

Again, thank you to everyone who has been supportive so far. Long live the vegan straightedge.

andy and abandon.

here we are.

so after a few months of being around, we are making our internet debut.  not all of us were exactly ecstatic to jump into the vast and nonsensical ocean that is the internet, but the good does outweigh the bad, and we want people to hear our music.  consequently, we now have a myspace page ( with our recently recorded 3 song demo posted on it, as well as this blog account which we will use to update everyone on what's going on with us, in a slightly more intimate fashion than we would on myspace.  check back, please.
