I’m writing this from a starbucks lobby in Toronto, so maybe “return to Canada” is a bit preemptive, but here we go.
This July, we will be doing some dates with handsome gentlemen Make Do and Mend/Balance and Composure, including a couple of them with boyfriends Touche Amore and new friends-to-be White Wives.
Ticket presales and facebook groups and whatever else comes with announcing dates will come soon. For now, enjoy this bright poster and the list of cities we will be in. Hope to see you!

If you have seen us in the last year, you might have seen the flower logo we’ve been using:
It’s been on shirts and flyers and whatever. I hand drew it and it kind of bugged me when I enlarged it because some of the proportions were weird but it served it’s purpose for a while.
Since I had some down time on this tour, I redesigned the logo to make it clean and geometrically sound.
Leave a comment and tell us what you think of the redesign. And all our new merch after this tour will have this one instead of the old one, starting with stuff on the Canadian tour with Alexisonfire and Norma Jean.
Lastly, speaking of new merch, we have a couple exclusive designs for sale online now at shirtsanddestroy.com/la_dispute
they are in limited quantities so order quickly if you’re interested. the prints on these are INSANELY well done, thanks to Ryan at SnD and the folks at Liberated Images.

Down – I lost everything on my computer. Every program and file that I didn’t have backed up somewhere (which was most) got erased. Life happens.
Up – I got to replace my old photoshop CS1 with CS3 and have been exploring all the new features today. also replaced fruityloops 8 with 9, not much difference there. still hoping to get adobe illustrator cs 3 or 4; i downloaded 4 but had a problem with a keygen.
and from my messing with photoshop and my tablet comes the following. what do you think of it as a shirt design? might be getting some made before the december tour with native. if you like my artwork, you can see more of it at my sporadically updated blog of my own, http://adamvass.wordpress.com.
Side note, our best friends in Touche Amore are coming through our neck of the woods soon and it is our goal to show them a crazy good time. We’ll be with them for 4 days, the 19-22 in Kalamazoo, Ann Arbor, Grand Rapids, and Chicago respectively. We aren’t playing the GR show, but some of us are in another band called ENDS and we might play it. There is more information about all of these shows in our shows listing, but for the sake of staying on topic of things i made today, heres a flyer for the first of four: kalamazoo.
I miss my old fonts and photoshop brushes already. If you have any suggestions for things I should do with my newly revamped computer, leave a comment. And get a new one isn’t a valid suggestion, unfortunately; i haven’t a nickel to my name.
I'm a lot happier now than I was this time last year.
