Sorry for the lack of updates. The last week has been pretty hectic. We traveled 23 hours through Asia, The Middle East and Europe finally arriving in the UK. Thanks to everyone who came out the shows last week in Japan. We will be back out there soon. We are playing 2 shows in Leeds tonight. The first show is at The Cockpit and it is 100% sold out. Since that show is sold out we decided to set up a basement show afterwards for free with our friends in Closure. The basement show will start after the first show at around 10 PM. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for the details on how to find the spot in Leeds. We are also playing 2 shows tomorrow night in Wales. The first show is in Cardiff at Clwb Ifor Bach and that show is sold out. Same deal since that show sold out we are doing another free show in Newport at Le Pub after our first show. Show at Le Pub starts at 9 PM and it's with Crossbreaker and Wardogs. That's all for now. Hopefully we will be seeing some of you tonight and tomorrow. Get weird. It's Halloween!

Last y'all knew we were trekking across the US with our boys in Touche Amore, Envy and ASIWYFA. After some killer shows in Lawrence, Omaha, Denver and Ogden we whipped straight from Utah to LAX, took a quick smoke break ;) and hopped an 11 hour plane ride over the Pacific to Japan!
Physically drained, mentally vexed and filled with Singapore Slings, we touched down at the Tokyo Narita airport where we met Ricky, our translator. Minutes later we were whisked to Saitama Super Arena for a Loud Park production meeting.
Saturday we hit the block in Harajuku, checked out some stores, ate some wild food and ran into our dudes Daiki and Kengo on the street. Small world...
Sunday we woke up at 6 to make our 7 o'clock lobby call to head to Loud Park. We were sound checking by 9am and drinking shortly after.
Words cannot do the Loud Park experience justice.
If you've ever seen MOTORHEAD...in an arena...in Japan...then you know what I'm talking about...
Fuck this industry. I'm in these streets.
