Wow!! Saturday night’s show in Denver was just crazy! We played at 7th Circle Music Collective which is a local all ages DIY venue. When we rolled up I wasn’t really sure what to expect and we haven’t played a place like this in a very long time, so it was nice to change things up from the bars/clubs we’ve gotten used to playing. There ended up being 5 other bands and I can honestly say there wasn’t a bad one in the bunch! There was really only one unexpected problem (always something..), Drew’s voice. He woke up with a cold and could barely talk the whole day. I think we were all hoping that once we started playing he would magically pull it off, but as soon as we started the second song it became clear that he wouldn’t be able to really sing at all unfortunately. In the end it didn’t matter too much, we had our friend Kurt come up and sing a couple songs (Maxwell Murder and Knowledge) and I sang a couple of his parts so I don’t know if people really even noticed. Everyone was dancing/moshing/ singing along, basically having a good time, and I can easily say it was the craziest crowd of the tour/one of the best ever! It’s so rare these days to find venues like this, and I know I would have killed to have a something like this back in the day to hang out and play music. Kind of reminded me of the house shows we used to put on in college except on steroids. Anyway, we were happy to be a part of it and want to give a huge thanks to everyone who came out, the other bands, and all of the volunteers who make that place possible!
After spending a delightful evening in the “van” (Honda CRV) we have already broken down and got a hotel haha. Catching up on some sleep now before our Fort Collins show tonight, should be a good time!
Alright well we just kicked off our tour with a beauty of a show in Amarillo, TX at Leftwoods. The motto of the city seems to be “at least it’s not Lubbock,” a statement that proved to be true as far as I could tell. Upon arriving we were asked to do two 45 min sets which is a Bear Suit impossibility but we still had a blast and met some awesome people. The amazing Kurt Armstrong of Use The Boost sang a couple songs with us and Cameron opened up for us and hooked us up with some delicious brews. Today we’re heading to Colorado Springs to play with some more awesome bands and embarrass ourselves in front of another crowd of 3 people. We’re planning to update this with each show so stay tuned, mom.
Special thanks to our closest pal Evan for putting up with us and giving us a bed to spoon in. We’ll be back soon!
Hey guys, hope you all had a great holiday season! We each got a chance to take some time off from Austin to rest and spend time with our families, but we are now all back and ready to hit the new year running! We’ve been working hard and have a couple exciting announcements:
We are very excited to head north next month on a small tour to Colorado! Here are the dates we’ve got lined up so far, more info will be up soon-
Feb 14- Amarillo, Tx Leftwoods
Feb 15- Colorado Springs, CO Triple Nickel Tavern
Feb 16- Denver, CO Seventh Circle Music Collective
Feb 18- Fort Collins, CO Surfside 7
So yes it has taken us a VERY long time to finish up the Chasing the Night/March of the Pigs single, but we just finished mixing this week and now we just need to complete the mastering phase. I am promising that they will be finished and released BEFORE THE TOUR! we are very happy with how they turned out and can’t wait to share them with you all! (Also a music video is in the works)
Our next local show is coming up this Saturday Jan 19 at Headhunters (Metal and Lace). There’s a great lineup with Bass Line Bums, Gally West, Shitty Advice (hehe..), and Secret Identity. It’s also free so come and hang out!
Huge thanks to everyone who has made playing in this band such a great experience! To anyone who’s ever come out to a show, to all the bands we’ve shared the stage with, and to anyone who has helped us out in any way in the studio/on the road, this would not be nearly as much fun without you all!
