My oh my.

What a cluster-fuck.

Last 3 weeks have seen a ridiculous online flurry of activity, culminating in us releasing the Fed to the Ocean video, which can now be seen in shiny HD on, well pretty much all of our online bits which have mushroomed/bloomed/whatever.

We're obviously going on tour tomorrow and we always promise tour blogs and then get fed up with doing them halfway through ( we being me ), and whilst I'm sure this time will prove no exception I have asked the rest of the band to remind me daily to put something up, most likely on here or the myspace, Jag tends to be the Facebook man these days and bloody good at it he is too.

The nice people at Vans in particular have asked for regular updates so I should do my bloody job really, fuck it's not like I'm writing a novel or anything whilst trundling around in the van, usually its just listening to man-rock and looking out the window and the tundra/desert/concrete jungle ( most likely in Europe )

Case in point, promised a big SXSW blog and nothing happened, guess why? Oh cos we were having to much fun thats fucking why, jesus you people leave us alone etc etc. I think maybe next time around I'll resort to the Godspeed approach and leave all press/ blogs yadayada to a simple one page release, such as this :

Funnily enough I was chatting about them the other day to a fellow friend and fan and relating how missed they were...if you're not familiar with their really quite extraordinary body of deeply disquieting work, then please feel free to congratulate me on introducing you to one of the best bands ever to have quietly stalked the planet. No please, I insist, keep the expensive gifts, you DESERVE them.

I digress, we're on tour as of tomorrow and packing and ipod filling is needed. Til now I'll say look at out nice new myspace layout and video and come and say hi at the merch stand.

Cancer Bats Tour poster.

Which is very nice, keep meaning to ask who did all the illustrations on their new record under the band logo, very cool. Looks like Tom Hooper possibly ( hard to tell, sorry if not please feel free to correct me ) but can't be sure til the album drops, either way.... here's the Punk Euro tour of the year you cheese eating surrender monkeys!

SXSW pics and bits.

Ok, so lifted this from the myspace one, but can be much more flippant here about the whole thing, although as it's just gone midnight I've lost an hour putting this up. Bloody DST.

Thought we'd start a little blog of shots of us out in SXSW, being our first time in the states. Unfortunately Mem couldn't make it out with us as he had a few delays with his visa ( all sorted now ) so a friend of our Hayden drove down from LA to fill in, and did a fucking awesome job too.

We'll just keep adding to these, some really cool ones, some really stupid.

Doesn't look right without Membo being there.

They were handing these out at the Stone Temple Pilots show, the koosies not the beers, both made the whole thing more tolerable.

We got this for Mem to say we missed him ( not just this, we're not that tight ) and the ungrateful bugger hasn't eaten it yet.


We don't endorse violence, death, any of that shit, but the fact remains that you put an assault rifle in a young mans hands and suddenly you feel like you're either :

Danny Dyer ( Gaz )
Leon ( Jag )
Grizzly Adams ( Andy )
Lord Byron ( Tom )

Just can't be helped.

Oh, we played a show or two as well. More of this coming, still collecting photos.

The Fear is Here.

I'm going to complete this properly after the outcome is certain, some of the more perceptive of you may have noticed an air of tension over our twitter/ myspace and er...well now this, maybe the few that stalk us on Facebook may have also read about some issues regarding SXSW... well today we find out if its all good in the hood or .....urm...... not all good in the hood.

As ever, eyes peeled.
