Rabble-rousers, naysayers, malcontents:
Amidst the frozen crops, Scantrons, and toilet-hugging of these much-maligned days, we are righting our ship and setting course for direct impacts locally and (soon, ill-advisedly (during the winter months)) afar. We’re playing shows this week and next(ish) in and around the Greater Los Angeles Area with the likes of Loma Prieta, Graf Orlock, They As In Them, Seizures, Calculator, My Iron Lung, and others. Should it not diminish the quality of your holiday bargain hunting, we’d love to have you slouch toward Bethlehem with us:
In other imminent news, Secret Voice and Vitriol are soiling their ears with the test presses from Five O’Clock Shadows at the Edge of the Western World. I’ll be posting the lyrics up here in the coming days, so stay tuned on that front. We’ll have those available for purchase as soon as the plant cobbles them together and sends them back in our direction. Plus some random un-video will be up in a few days.
We’re heading to the East Coast and Midwest (finally) to play shows in January and February. If you live in any of the following areas and would like to put a show on for us, please send us an email or forever hold your peace: Boston, NYC, New Jersey, Philly, Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit, etc.
Suarez in beastmode. Homemaking furniture. Dead trees ad infinitum. Blue is the Warmest Color. Let’s Get Lost. Brubeck band meetings. Chapped lips. The importance of being Ernest Hemingway. Lydia Davis. Fenders bending. Forever fireworks.
God rest ye merry gentle(wo)men,
We are playing these:

We have returned from the heat-soaked climes of The Old Continent with reinvigorated notions of who we are, what we are doing, and how we plan on doing it. What that means for you, ye olde consumer, is a pending date with our new EP (it ships to the plant for production ASAP), a chance to view our practice facilities via streamed motion picture, an LP that will gut your better sensibilities, and, in the foreground, a chance to partake in a live performance we are presenting at the Chain Reaction musical performance venue in Anaheim, CA. Those deets are as follows:
Friday, September 6, 2013
Live at the Chain Reaction (starts at 7pm)
1652 W. Lincoln Avenue
Anaheim, CA, 92801

I am alone in a room in Begues. A-Trane is already dreaming of broken sticks and splinters. But I have just read that the Supreme Court of the United States of America took its first significant steps towards a more equal North America. As skeptical as I am prone to be, it is with little other than joy that the news was read. Here is to momentum, and to the notion that love, if two beings are ever lucky enough to find it, should never be discouraged. Our entire tour just got a kick in the ass. We will continue to do our part. You, yours. See you soon, Old World.

To Those Residing Upon The Continent:
It is with great excitement and anticipatory inclinations that we four, plus Jack, would like to inform you of our impending arrival upon your well-historied shores. Together with a group of fellow musicians whom have organized under the Painted Wolves moniker, we will be appearing in hovels large and small to play for you our modest attempts at music-making and thought-provoking. Our second foray into Europe sees us missing wholly the isles comprising the United Kingdom, but, in lieu, we shall be making what may prove our first and last appearances in such southern European hotspots as Spain and Italy. The former, in particular, will bring great joy to (at least) this man, as Spanish blood courses through my veins and the signage presents less formidable problems. I am currently in Barcelona, preparing for our upcoming trip here with keen observations, allergic reactions, and mounds of food from Gopal. Suffice it to say: we are all greatly looking forward to marauding across your many borders and would entreat you to join us at one (or more!) of our scheduled appearances (see below). The two days before Fluff Fest still need to be filled, so please send us an email at email@example.com if you should be capable of providing us with patch of ground that you think we should play on.

My arm is full of staph. My ears are full of this. I’m impatient for everything.

RIP Señor Manzarek. I hope you enjoyed the baba ghanoush Tim once sold you. And, perhaps, I hope this doesn’t make you squirm in your new grave:
