adam and i will both be master blasting...

bad news about friday's show

Nanda Devi had to cancel but that doesn't mean we won't be playing shows with them in the future. We are still planning on playing August 15th with them somewhere in town but it's just not confirmed yet.

Sometimes Ben thinks it's funny to alter fliers when there is a lineup change and this is the outcome. Don't be offended Nanda Devi, we still love you.

so yeah, that's the new band playing, The Hand that Bleeds. I've heard good things about them and look forward to seeing them and all of you on Friday night at Kelly's Olympian. Don't forget, this Friday night will not be enjoyable for you unless you attend this show. Also, don't for get Los Moustachios are doing a video show during our set!

where is the most comforatable place you have ever slept?

for me it would for sure have to be on the night of saturday june 21st, after playing a show on our way home from seattle.

i was in the van, on top of my amp and the fog machine while wedging my head between various guitar cases and jesse's kick drum to supplement for the lack of pillows.

maybe i'll publish pictures later. my camera is away from me right now.

oh, and big shout out to andy fenstermaker for taking photos. see them here.

drum staxxxxxxxs

today i played drums with Westfold. then their real drummer, Dustin, came, then we did dual drums. then i accidentally punched myself in the balls. somehow i feel like it was worth it. i love that band.
ps. we are playing with Westfold and Nanda Devi on Friday, June 27th @ Kelly's Olympian. it is a guaranteed positive experience. that is to say, great times are to be had.

Would you like to meet the Feedback King? We took some footage of him in his natural habitat; the video turned out a little FUZZY and DISTORTED. Will that scare you away?

more studio exclusivity!

Adam recording the end of Feedback King. Listen to that sweet tube overdrive mixed with big muff pi and that sweet sweet super hard on. mmmmmm.....

pretty rippin' for camera audio, don't ya think?

More details on upcoming AristeiA release!

So we are over at Nate's house recording up a storm. It occurred to me that we should share some of our information about the upcoming release with you guys. Basically it is going to be a maximum-album in mini-album form. (i.e. six tracks). It is about swords and dragons, politcally speaking of course.

Brandon wasn't flipping you off.
