The Sound. The Fury. 2011

The Northwest is being repped well this year. We're psyched! See you soon California.

We played this song at Rain Fest. Here are the lyrics with a little explanation.

Too young to have known better.
Now it's too late to get you back.
Said our goodbyes.
Made our amends.
Now you're gone.
Never coming back.

I've begged and I've pleaded.
It's not worth a damn.
Time may heal these wounds.
But it's made me a fool.

What I would give for just one more day.
Never felt so empty.
Never felt more lost.

What I would give for just one more day.
I would give everything.
And yet, everything doesn't seem . . . like enough.

Since this band started I've been struggling with writing lyrics about how I felt after my father passed away. After 2 years I think I've finally found the words to get across how I felt then, and still feel today. It's been 7 years and not a day goes by that I don't think about him. Losing anyone is hard. I think losing a parent (or whoever raised you) is harder.

What I think back on most is all the stuff I wish I asked him. All the stories I know he had. When you're a kid you don't think about it. You take for granted that your parents are there. Unfortunately, they're not there forever.

There is little that I regret in my life. But if I could, I'd give up every possession I have to spend one full day with him again asking him all the things I didn't when I was too young to know better.

My computer sucks so I've been really slacking on updating our blog the last few months. My apologies. Check out our shows section for our upcoming gigs. Not a whole lot going on at the moment, but there is news and some changes coming up very soon. This video is a hint.

(Intro into Healing Crisis - Pomona, CA - November 2010)

Thanks to Joey 6131 for this gig and to chupamisovarios for taping these songs. Big ups California! See you in July.

It's been a while . . .

It's been quite some time since we made a substantial blog post up here. A few things have happened since the end of 2010. In case you missed it, our 7" titled 'Our Choices' has finally seen the light of day. Thanks in no part to my own slacking. For those of you who pre-ordered it,  you should be receiving your copies over the next couple of weeks. I packed a few orders myself. If you live in the Seattle area, you can pick up a copy at Singles Going Steady, along with the Remission and Common Cause 7"'s. Both true ragers, so don't sleep on those.

Since the record actually exists and is no longer just a concept in our heads, we have 3 shows lined up in the Pacific NW to commemorate the event. All 3 of which are with Fought Alone (from PDX) and new Seattle/Tacoma heavy hitters, Dead Weight. The first of which is in Seattle on February 25th at Fusion Cafe with Sojourner, ON, Fought Alone, and Dead Weight. Then on Saturday we head south to Portland, OR where we play the Black Rose infoshop (sounds wyld) with those 2 bands and Young Turks, who I think is dudes from Broadway Calls. Last up on the weekend we play Olympia, WA (home to Kill Rock Stars and Evergreen College) with Outlook, Parasitic Skies, and our weekend tour mates. All in all, it should be a straight up banger of a weekend. You should be there. Possibly at all three gigs.

After that we have couple shows in the Tacoma and Seattle areas with Bully. We've been asked to play a couple of West Coast fests, which will get announced in due time. We're writing some new songs and looking to hit up the West & East Coasts, as well as the Mid-West this spring/summer.

Thanks again to everyone and anyone who pays attention. It is truly appreciated. We hope to see some of you in the next few months.

Friends of ours recently found out their dog was diagnosed with a brain tumor. It's going to cost thousands of dollars for radiation therapy. We just put 2 new shirts up in our bigcartel plus the 2nd press of our Moving On 7inch. 50% of the proceeds will be going to them. If you live in NYC, John tattoo's at a place called Daredevil and will be working as much as he can to raise money. You can also donate here.

Help however you can.
