Winter & Spring 2011

Wow. The nostalgia circuit is in fuckin overdrive but finally in a good way. All the obvious retro cash-ins have run their course and it's given way to another wave of the few real credible bands playing real hardcore shows for better reasons. I kind of can't believe we're playing with Crass, Unbroken and Citizen's Arrest all within one month, but then I can't think of 3 bands that have meant much more to me, as different as their scenes and eras were, so I'm not complaining.
Here's everything we have coming up. Thanks everyone that's written for your support. As I said, we're really far in the hole from the events of last year, so we won't be doing as much this year, but we're definitely still going to do (shorter runs of) both east and west coasts once, and a lot of weekends/fests in between. Meantime we're writing some new songs for another EP, and putting out a live split LP with Coliseum. Here's the shows, there's some more pending through the spring so check back and I'll update this as I have it. Thanks y'all.

There's still a lot to say and people to thank in regards to Europe. Despite the weather and a few setbacks, the tour was a great experience and again, Mike Persil is a champ. If anyone's looking for the European version of the SFBL LP (/500, alternate cover), you can get what's left of them from Reflections. As for 2011, it was such a blast but holy hell are we broke as fuck. Unless we find a bag of solid gold bars somewhere, 2011 is looking like it's not going to be as tour heavy as last year, but we're making our plans. Thanks for everybody that booked shows/tours and let us sleep on their floor last year.

Sorry to hear you're too broke to tour much in '11. Definitely appreciate the effort made in getting over to Europe again. Thanks

It's a shame you guys are low on income but, hopefully me and some friends can catch you guys again in Montreal! Seeing you twice in NS was good enough but, I mean....C'MONNNN!

Make it happen, best of luck!
