ART DISTRICT 7"/SUMMER U.S. TOUR

TODAY'S A GOOD FUCKING DAY. AFTER A SHIT TON OF STRESSFUL GARBAGE RAINING DOWN ON OUR HOPES TO TOUR THE U.S. AGAIN… WE FINALLY GOT OUR BRAND NEW (2001) VAN E TESTED. IT PASSED. THE SWAMPER LIVES. JAMES FROM LAPSARIA HAS JOINED US ON BASS AS JOHN DEPARTS.



WE WILL BE RELEASING OUR NEW 'ART DISTRICT' 7" (SCHIZOPHRENIC/SCULL CRASHER) JULY 26TH IN HAMILTON AT THE DOORS.... THE SHOW IS A FUNDRAISER TO GET US OUT OF THE RED FROM THE VAN/INSURANCE AND A BILLION OTHER THINGS. SORRY ITS SO EXPENSIVE AND THANKS TO ALL THE BANDS PLAYING TO DIG US OUT OF THIS. MAD RESPECT SERIOUSLY.



WE WILL ALSO BE PLAYING AT S.H.I.B.I.G.B.S IN TORONTO JULY 20TH WITH NUDES FROM SEATTLE AND HOME INVASION. 

ALSO CHECK OUT THE NEW MAXIMUM ROCK AND ROLL FOR OUR OCTOBER TOUR DIARY. NONE OF US HAVE SEEN IT YET BUT I WROTE IT AT SOME POINT SO ITS PROBABLY STUPID AS SHIT JUST LIKE THIS.



STOKED TO SEE ALL OF OUR AMERICAN FRIENDS AND THANKS TO ALL OUR HOMIES FOR THE SUPPORT AS OF LATE.

TOUR/7"/HOME

IT'S BEEN A WHILE SINCE WE'VE POSTED ANYTHING UP HERE BUT IT'S BEEN BUSY.
WE JUST FINISHED A FULL MONTH TOUR IN THE STATES. SOMETHING LIKE 22 OR 23 SHOWS. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO HELPED BOOK US A DATE, LET US SLEEP ON YOUR FLOOR, BOUGHT US A DRINK, BOUGHT A RECORD OR MERCH TO PUT GAS IN THE TANK. EVERYONE OF YOU MUST HAVE RECEIVED A MILLION DRUNKEN THANKS FROM EVERY INDIVIDUAL IN THE BAND BUT ONE MORE CANT HURT. WE'LL DEFINITELY SEE YOU ALL VERY SOON.

IT WAS GREAT TO RETURN TO HAMILTON AND PLAY ONE OF THE MOST FUN SHOWS WE'VE EVER HAD. WE RELEASED OUR NEW "HOLDING CELL" 7" ON SCHIZOPHRENIC RECORDS WITH T.V. FREAKS (WHO HAVE A NEW INCREDIBLE LP THAT JUST WON A HAMILTON MUSIC AWARD) AND LOCAL YOUNG GUNS BURN VICTIM. THE ONLY THING THAT SUCKED ABOUT THE NIGHT IS THAT TORONTO PUNX, KREMLIN, PLAYED THEIR LAST HAMILTON SET AS THEY CALL IT QUITS. LUCKILY WE GOT TO SEE THEM PLAY/SHARE THE STAGE ONE MORE TIME AT SNEEKY DEES FOR NOT DEAD YET LAST THURSDAY. THE ENTIRE FEST WAS GREAT AND IT WAS REALLY FUN BEING PART OF IT. THANKS AGAIN TO THE ORGANIZERS OF NDY AND DOORS PUB STAFF.

AS THE COLD WEATHER IS COMING WELL BE PLAYING SOUTHERN ONTARIO AND WORKING ON NEW MATERIAL.

WE WILL BEGIN RECORDING AGAIN OVER THE COURSE OF THE WINTER FOR A NEW RELEASE.

AUG/SEPT/OCT/NOV

THE SUMMER IS COMING TO A CLOSE AND WE'VE BEEN SUPER BUSY. A HUGE THANKS TO GREG FOR LINING US UP WITH DC HEAVY HITTERS COKE BUST IN TORONTO. THANKS TO DUSTIN FOR ORGANIZING AN INCREDIBLE SHOW WITH BURNING LOVE AND WASTED POTENTIAL IN LONDON. ONE OF MY FAVORITE SOUTHERN ONTARIO SHOWS WE'VE PLAYED. WE ALSO HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO PLAY WITH HC LEGENDS NEGATIVE APPROACH AUGUST 3RD. THOSE GUYS STILL RIP. GREAT TIME. TOOK A WEEKEND TRIP TO OTTAWA AND MONTREAL ON THE 10TH AND 11TH. OTTAWA PROVED PRETTY FRUSTRATING AS WE HAD A BUNCH OF EQUIPMENT PROBLEMS AND ONLY GOT TO PLAY A FEW SONGS BUT WE HAD A BLAST PARTYING WITH SKA JEFF AND THE DUDES IN ABSOLUT WHO RIP HARD. THANKS TO SAMMY FOR LETTING US JUMP ON LAST MINUTE. MONTREAL WAS INCREDIBLE. PLAYED WITH NAUGHTY GIRLS, MY NEW FAVORITE PUNK BAND FROM MTL, AND SAD BOYS FROM NYC. HUGE THANKS TO MONTREALS NICEST DUDE JTA AND THANKS TO JANNICK FOR HAVING US AT KATACOMBS ONE OF THE COOLEST VENUES WE'VE BEEN TO PERIOD.


WE'LL BE PLAYING THIS FRIDAY AUGUST 23RD IN HAMILTON WITH HASSLER, SMOOTH BRAIN, NOT AND A LAST MINUTE ADDITION OF ACOUSMA FROM PEI. $5 AT RETIREMENT HOME ASK A PUNK FOR THE ADDRESS.

WE WILL BE PLAYING THE FOLLOWING DAY IN BARRIE AT THE NEW D.I.Y. ARTS COLLECTIVE OUT THERE. EXCITED TO GO A BIT FURTHER NORTH!

WE WILL BE RELEASING A LIMITED ED. POST CARD FLEXI WITH GRUESOME ART WORK PROVIDED BY BUDDY HAWLEY SS#2. SHOULD BE OUT SOMETIME IN SEPTEMBER. THANKS AGAIN TO SCHIZOPHRENIC RECORDS FOR HELPING US DO SOME COMPLETELY RIDICULOUS SHIT.

ALSO
WE HAVE OUR NEW 7" AT THE PRESSING PLANT RIGHT NOW THAT WE WILL HOPEFULLY  HAVE FOR OUR OCTOBER U.S. TOUR.

WE HAVE ALSO BEEN ADDED TO THIS YEARS NOT DEAD YET LINEUP IN TORONTO. NOT SURE OF ALL THE DETAILS BUT REALLY STOKED TO BE A PART OF IT.
