I was rushed out of the hotel the other day when I was trying to catch up on tour blogging. We are now in Atlanta, GA chillin before the gig tonight and we have some time so i figured I would get caught up as much as I can before we have to leave again. SOOOOOO after the show in Albany, NY we played Boston, MA at the ICC Church. KM booked the gig and it was fucking rad. He always hooks us up there. It's a good feeling to know you're going to be taken care of when you come through a city. The Boston show was the first of three shows we did with NEW LOWS. I'm hyped they did those shows with us cause they fucking rip. They played some new songs and they were fucking heavy. If you are sleeping on NEW LOWS you need to wake up. We decided to play on the floor at the church and it was cool. I'm glad we did that. Here are some pictures from the gig. Check them out..
After Boston we made our way to Long Island, NY. We hadn't played LI in about a year so I was super stoked on getting back there. It was also our friend Hernik's birthday show and I'm always down to rage a friends birthday show. The show was also in a backyard in about 40 degree freezing weather. Kids had to slam around to stay warm. It was a gnarly gig. We showed up super late and missed SHORT END and BACKTRACK which bummed me the fuck out cause I need to see those bands. Good LI dudes making good hard LI jams. Get with it. This backyard show went by pretty fast. The cops came and told us we had to hurry up so we jammed through it as quick as we can. Here is a video of the set. Check it out for yourself....
Edison, New Jersey was up next. It was our roady NICK FIT'S and our good friend ALAN'S birthday show. The line up was fucking rad. it was BAD SEED/ALPHA & OMEGA/NEW LOWS/SPANISH BOMBS/WAR HUNGRY/CRUEL HAND/TRASH TALK. You have to set up an ill line up for fit's bday show. Every band fucking killed it. The show was raging. We decided to play on the floor again cause doing stuff like that is rad. It was by far our craziest NJ show yet. Kids were diving off of anything and everything. Here are some photos check it out...
Baltimore, MD the next day was fucking rad. The show was at CCAS which is a super small art space. Everyone packed in. People were bleeding. I was bleeding. I tried to rip down the ceiling but it didn't work out in my favor. Instead my hands are just bashed up now. Bracewar played the gig and I haven't seen them in awhile so it was cool to see them gig and just hang out. The show went by pretty quick and I don't remember much from that night so who knows. After the show we made the drive down to Richmond, VA where our drummer Rashod lives. If there is one thing I know it is that going home for a few hours in the middle of a long tour is a straight tease. It fucking sucks. Go sleep in your bed for about 5 hours of great sleep then get back into hell mode. I don't like doing that but rashod loves it so who knows. The show in Richmond was cool. A bunch of homies came out to hang. It was nice seeing some people I haven't seen in awhile. Shout outs to Trapped Under Ice. Naysayer played the RVA gig and they are one of the hardest new bands out. My boy gary sings for that band. Solid dude/solid jams. Check them out. You will not regret it. After richmond we played Johnson City, TN. We played JC on our last u.s. tour with Cold World/Iron Age and it was raging so we were all super eager to get back there. Johnson City did not dissapoint. It's close to halloween so people were dressed up moshing around. Here is a picture of a flying twink from that show. Check it...
After JC was north carolina. We hadn't been to NC in over a year. The last time we were there was with the Mongoloids/Cruel Hand we played this ill skatepark with a plywood stage/barbwire fence surrounding the stage. It looked like a scene straight out of a biohazard video. The venue wasn't as cool this time around but the show was way better. Kids from all over NC/SC came out. A&O killed it. We have been on tour with them for a few weeks now and watching them never gets old. I love that band. That's all for now. I am caught up on the blog ! I won't fall behind this time I promise. We are heading out of the house right now to go play tonights gig in atlanta. If you live in the area you should be there. FC 5 is playing and they came from a long ways away so you should come support them. Shout outs to Daiki. See you all soon.
Heres the flyer for tonight... Be there..
