Lost Ground pre orders.

So the pre orders for Lost Ground went up this morning on the B9 site.
You dig vinyl? Thats cool because we have a few different color ways to choose from. Or are you like me and you're record player has been broken for the last four years because every time you fix it it breaks after five rotations? Thats cool, it's pressed on CD too.

We've got a bunch of different option for you all up on the Bridge 9 Store so head over there, pre order the record and come out to our tour that starts tomorrow in Moo York City and hear a new jam or two live.

Last night Ruiner slept over and Steve had a wet dream.

He was dry humping our hardwood floor. I know, right?

So anyway, every Monday from now on we'll be posting a song from Travels that hasn't been on Myspace before. We'll do this until the entire album is up on our page or the new double 7", Lost Ground, is released on November 17th. We're too slow to do the math and figure out which will happen first but it's whatever, it doesn't matter. Come back every Monday and check out the "new" song and eventually there will be a real new song from Lost Ground posted. We're all siked (and nervous) for everyone to hear it.

We leave on October 22nd for an east coast tour that we threw together to get down to The Fest in Gainesville and back. If we're coming to a city near you come and hang out. Bring food, blankets, canned goods or unused toys. Basically anything you'd bring to a homeless shelter and donate around Christmas time will be treated like gold by us when we're on tour because we're either broke, forgot/lost a sleeping bag or emaciated due to lack of food or malnutrition. The toys are just for fun. Oh! Also, our friend Davey will be on tour selling merch for us. He sings in a CA based band called All Teeth. Check em out. He is out with The Swellers right now so go to one of their shows and give him a hard time. And then a tip. Anyway, enough rambling. Here are the dates:
10.22-@ The Studio at Webster Hall- New York, NY(CMJ Showcase)
10.23-@ The Yippie Cafe- New York, NY
10.24-@ The Wounded Healer-Pitman, NJ
10.25-@ The Belly Of The Beast-Parkersburg, WV
10.26-@ The Brickhouse-Nitro WV
10.27-@ Legitimate Business-Greensboro, NC
10.28-@The Soapbox-Wilmington, NC
10.29-@The Oasis-Charleston, SC
10.30-@ The Fest-Gainesville, FL
10.31-@New Brookland Tavern-West Columbia, SC
11.01-@The Peppermint Beach Club-Virgina Beach, VA
11.02-@ TBA-Richmond, VA
11.03-@Charm City Art Space-Baltimore, MD
11.04-@ The Warehouse-Somerset, NJ
11.05-@TBA-Wilkes-Barre, PA
11.06-@ The Oneonta Armory-Oneonta, NY
11.07-@The Wallingford American Legion-Wallingford, CT

Lastly, I'd just want to let you know that we have a Twitter account. I made it a while back and never really advertised it because I was kind of embarrassed but all the cool kids are doing it now and it seems like less and less people are checking Myspace these days. The URL is just There is a Facebook page floating around somewhere too but Im sure it desperately needs updating.

Alright, that's it for now. We'll be sure to remind everyone with bulletin posts, twitter updates and maybe even Facebook messages about the songs being added every Monday and we hope to see you come out to a show.

Lost Ground masters and Polar Bear Club record release weekend.

So we got the masters for Lost Ground back from Kurt at Godcity just before we left for the Polar Bear Club record release show in Buffalo NY. It sounds great and we're all siked. We'll be practicing some new songs and playing a couple of them on our October/November east coast tour.
Honestly, I can't believe we made it to Buffalo and were not too late for the show. We were up and at em' at 8am and in the van by 9am. Gus was still drunk from the night before and none of us wanted to drive but we pushed on, hungry and tired and we still made it to Buffalo in time to hang with Polar Bear Club before the show. Met a lot of new people and ate a lot of pizza and burritos before the show kicked off. The first band that played, Such Gold was fucking rad. Sounded like old Crime In Stereo from the Explosive And The Will to Use Them era. Sick. Then we played and that was blah blah blah and then Forfeit. It was my first time seeing these guys. Obviously I had heard a lot about them because Reaper Records is just killing it right now but I had never seen them before. I think we were all very impressed and realized we had been missing out. Gonna have to play with those dudes again sometime soon. Nice guys too.
After Forfeit, Polar Bear Club was up. They played a couple new songs that seemed to get just as good a reaction as some of the old jams so that's good sign. They have to be the tightest live band going right now. Every song sounds so good. Anyway, they played and our party kinda split up. We ended up heading back to Emmett's place in Syracuse so we could hang there all day before the show the next night. We slept in, ate some Mexican food, saw some funny looking metalcore kids waiting to get into the Emmure show and watched the NOFX reality show on Fuse before we headed over to the venue. The line up for the second show was Night Owls(former members of Another Breath), us, Fireworks(fun boiz) and Polar Bear Club. More pizza, more beer, more people and a big party afterwards. We danced, we drank, we got loud, I didn't sleep well and then we woke up and started driving to Hartford for our show with Have Heart, Cruel Hand, Crime in Stereo and Foundation. Solid fucking line up. I think the venue was a little bummed with the turn out but what did they expect when they book STRYPER right next door?! No one can compete with that. No one. Anyway, the show went well. We had a bunch of friends from The Stereo State, Hostage Calm and Make Do And Mend come hang out s that was definitely a nice way to end the weekend.

Now we're back to the damn grind of work and school. We've got that weekend with Hostage Calm coming up and then before we know it we'll be heading out on our east coast fall tour to The Fest and back. Dates for that just went up on our Myspace so head over there and check em out. Thanks for reading! We'll have more news about the upcoming release and any other shows coming soon.

Drum Sounds, EP news and an upcoming tour.

Hey party people.
Yesterday we started tracking drums for six new songs. I haven't been to the studio myself yet, but I'm told the drum sounds are great. Jay and Andy are hard at work there right now. I'll be there tomorrow checking it out and I'm pretty siked. These six songs will be released on a 7" through Bridge 9 Records in early November. We're trying to work out a US tour for that same time but things are still kinda up in the air.

What we do have planned for this fall is a two week East Coast run to Florida and back. We'll be heading down to Gainesville to hang out and play some house/backyard/warehouse shows Halloween weekend where we'll be meeting up with our friends in Strike Anywhere, Polar Bear Club and Ruiner for the last couple shows on the Bridge 9 tour(W. Columbia, SC and Virginia Beach, VA). We will announce all the other dates soon.

Thanks for reading. I'll be sure to report back with any updates to our touring schedule and recording progress.
