When they’re nothing left to lose.
Circumstances aren’t allowing us to announce the full details of the tour at this time, but we will be getting the details out very very soon. Thanks for being patient. In the meantime, if you live in Portland. You should come see the most stacked bill ever.
We have a bunch of new merch. Yes, we reprinted “It’s Okay Not To Drink Milk”.
We have four new songs. We will be playing at least one of them every night of tour. We plan on playing more than one new song at the Portland tour kick off. We learned two covers, neither was written after 1989.
We’re looking forward to spending the first chunk of summer in a van, playing shows, and hanging out with our friends. Show us the crucial spots to swim, let’s party all night, let’s wake up and go for a run in the morning. We’re just glad to be here.

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.
Your generosity will help sustain one of the best animal sanctuaries I’ve ever come across.

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.
