Salutations from the Big Game Lodge! We're gearing up for day number two in the studio and you know we're cooking up some fire for you. The heat outside is pretty ridiculous, but the plush interior of the spot is keeping us sheltered from that mess. Sound and Fury is coming up this weekend, be sure to stop by the TTC table to check out the wares. We're gonna have a ton of surprises throughout the weekend so don't get caught sleeping. We finally have a new webstore up and running and this time around we've got a staff on deck to help us get your items out swiftly. You can expect your orders to be processed within 48 hours. Thanks for being patient on your previous orders from TTC. We greatly appreciate you sticking by us while we've been working out the bugs. To those of you who missed out in March, the sold out East of Eden single is being repressed in the UK by our friends at Holy Roar. Pre-orders for the limited run, colored vinyl repress are available now so don't miss it again.

No peace,

Sweatin to the hits...

Carl's garage has been on fire and the neighbors are starting to stop by to exchange words... and the reviews are good. Earlier today, while running through the intro to a song for an upcoming release on TTC (duh), we were interrupted by fervent knocking. The interloper was an ex-marine who was surprised to find a "brotha" like him "rockin it like that." He alleges to play saxophone and piano and proposed a collaboration. I'm thinking no...

The songs for our upcoming EP are nearly finished. Good thing too, since we're hitting the studio on the 26th.

If you live in Sacto and can hear us, bring some food by will ya?

3313.80 miles...

We are currently sitting in a hot apartment in Chicago, IL. We traveled here from NYC last night after a fun filled night of fireworks, music, drinks and friends. Now we are getting ready to get back in the van and finish the rest of this drive across the US of A back to the great state of California. It's crazy to think about how many miles we have traveled in a van together. I wish I would have kept track of the number. Tour ended 2 days ago in NYC. Thanks to all the punks, skins, crusties, hardcore kids and whatever other kind of freak you can think of that came out to any of the shows on our last tour. It was a blast. Extra big thanks to The Casualties and Leftover Crack for making every night a wild one. Tour was great but it's been awhile since we have been back in our home state. I can't wait to get back to California and do the most summer things possible. BBQ's, rivers, cliffs, movies, adult beverages and hang with friends just to name a few. We have tons of NEW stuff coming up soon in the Trash Talk camp that will make your head spin so keep checking back for updates. I believe Slayer is playing at the Sleep Train Amphitheater this Friday in Sacramento. If you live in the area you should definitely try to make it out. Hopefully I'll see you there.

That's all for now. Hope everyone is having a great summer. See you soon.
