We are between tours for just a few more days and have been each having our respective good times. I was spending some time in Boston with Make Do and Mend and the Topshelf/Run For Cover records gentlemen and other friends having a blast, but I flew home last night because…
Tonight at Pyramid Scheme (a relatively new venue in Grand Rapids which I haven’t been to yet) our boyfriends Touche Amore are playing! with our as-of-next-week-tour-mates Balance and Composure, soon-to-be-buds White Wives, and local staples Brothers. Its an early show because Pyramid Scheme are being awesome and letting it be all-ages, so get there on time.
Here is a facebook event page for it where you can get more details.
And lastly, speaking of boyfriends, my best friend Lazur, who many of you have probably met as our merch guy, or more recently Touche Amore’s merch guy on the Title Fight tour, won’t be there tonight. Instead, he is swimming in bail and court related debt in Ohio and kind of in a hard place right now (not ohio, the money thing). In an effort to help him offset some of his costs, I did a collaboration with the David Summers Photo, and we’re getting some shirts made up with his handsome face on it. All the money goes to getting lazur out of debt and back home or on tour with us, whichever happens first.
If you would like to help, there is a tshirt and a tanktop available for pre-order at freelazur.bigcartel.com. If you want to help spread the word, use the tag #freelazur on twitter! You might have already seen it floating around and scratched your head, but now you know.
Lastly, tour starts in less than a week in eastern Canada with MDAM and Balance, and I’m very excited to see those bands perform each night and to play dice with them.
And I think the mixing process of our new record is finished.

Although we aren’t playing this year, Brad and I will be hanging out at Sound and Fury festival this weekend. Since I picked up the 2006 DVD i’ve been so stoked to go someday and this will be my first year, so come kick it with us. Theres still plenty of passes if you are in California or want to make the trek, you can pick them up at http://www.soundandfuryfestival.bigcartel.com or hit up http://www.6131records.com/store where you can get passes and the third pressing of touche amore’s record.
No Sleep is going to be there and we will have our Touche Amore split available in person for the first time, including a pressing of 75 exclusive to sound and fury. We have a new shirt that will be at the no sleep booth as well.
Theres so much going on and so many people I’m excited to see, I can barely begin to tell you everything. If you do attend, make sure to check out our friends in:
Make Do And Mend
and all the bands. I’m especially excited to see Bane, that most recent seven inch they put out is so good.
Show us a good time, California! We’re going to have a blast. I’ll be selling/trading paintings and drawings all weekend too so get at me at adamxvass.com if you want to meet up.
In closing, here is an awesome video of our friends in Trash Talk destroying the fest last year in a Uhaul
