We did a special cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “I’m On Fire” over the weekend. It’s a minimum $1 donation (but give as much as you want). All of the money raised will be donated to the Green Acres Farm Sanctuary in Silverton, OR and write for us home.
Your generosity will help sustain one of the best animal sanctuaries I’ve ever come across.

Remember when we talked about doing that cover? #youngturks (at D Wreck Studios)

We’re excited to announce these handful of shows for the next few months. It’s good to be in the Northwest.
You’ll notice a band on the 3/7 show called Bad Land. This is a new project that features Matt and Bryan from YT, as well as Wayne from Gravemaker, and Jim from Champion. If you miss their first show, you’re fucking up. If you’re straight edge and you miss their first show, you’re a fencewalker.
As many in our circle of friends know, Gareth’s last show with us will be in Vancouver, BC with Clarity (meaning go see his last Portland show when we play with Terror). I can attest to the fact that Gareth is one of the most talented musicians I’ve ever had the pleasure of playing with. He’s got an ear for tone, a knack for being tasteful, and can double pick faster than you’ve ever even thought of trying. We begged and pleaded with him to find time for this band when we first started, and it seems like that time just sort of ran out. I will cherish the entire process of “Where I Lie” as some of the best times of my life, and Gareth is a big part of that.
I sound like a broken record, but we appreciate the constant support and positivity we receive from many of you on a regular basis. We’re looking forward to seeing you all at some shows.

PropertyOfZack is happy to be posting 10Of’12 End Of The Year Lists from the Animal Style Records family. Check them out below and come back every day for more!
EDIT 11/13/12: We’re playing with Power in Portland.
We’re home. We’re tired. We’re broke.
Thanks to everyone who was a part of this tour. Tony @ No Idea/Fest, Matt Medina and Animal Style Records, our trusty merch lackeys (Ashley) Jenkins and (Josh) Drink Cup, our friends, and our families truly made this tour happen. We are incredibly grateful for their support. There are too many individuals to name specifically. But to everyone who booked a show, bought merch, put gas in our tank, sang along, stagedived, or told us they had fun, thank you.
This tour had some really amazing moments that I’ll never forget, and some really bad moments that I’ll also never forget. At the end of all of it, there is nothing I would have rather done in the last 4 weeks than get in the van with my friends, play 25 shows and support our new record.
I’ll probably post a chunk of pictures when we get it all organized. There should be a few videos floating around too.
We are going to take the rest of the year to chill, enjoy some Blazers basketball, continue to complain about the NHL lockout, and write some new songs. We’re glad that the record has been received in such high regard with many of the people we met.
I have no definitive answers to what we will release next, a split, a 7”, another full length, who knows. But we are locking ourselves in the practice space and time will tell how much music materializes. The winter is long in Portland, and I don’t imagine we will be rushing out to tour for a while.
We do however plan on touring more extensively in 2013. So if you didn’t see us on this tour, or if we skipped your town, we won’t next year.
If you want to keep up with us more often than the seldom post on here, follow our Twitter and Facebook (there are some links to the right). I realize this post is really just a long winded “thank you” and “we didn’t kill each other so we’re going to keep writing music”, but if you want details, I’ll always deliver in overabundance.
That song is called “Three Goggles”. It’s named at Wesley Matthews (Of Portland Trailblazer fame) signature crowd salute after sinking a 3 pointer.
