We will be playing Hopscotch Music Festival in North Carolina this fall. Go here to see the initial lineup. More than a few updates will be coming between now and then including album recording plans, tours, tours and more tours!
Last week we posted on facebook/twitter/instagram that Jesse was a guest on Eugene Robinson’s KNUCKLE UP Podcast, but we figured we should post it here too! http://www.bloodyelbow.com/2014/3/10/5490604/knuckle-up-427-the-mauler-v-manuwa-jones-genius-the-dude-from-kenmode
Christopher Mills’ masterpiece is finally upon us.
Check out the video Converse shot with the help of our friend Scott Kinkade back in November:
Happy new year everyone! As some of you know, we’ll be on the road with RUSSIAN CIRCLES, INTER ARMA, and HELMS ALEE very soon. We have a few new shirt designs we’ll be debuting by our main man Randy Ortiz, have a new video for ‘The Terror Pulse’ coming very soon, and are starting to put together some new material for our next record. Hopefully 2014 is as interesting a year as 2013 was!
Here’s a fairly extensive interview Jesse and Shane did on the Canadian tour with FULL OF HELL back in Oct/Nov that we figured is worth posting on here:
After an extremely busy fall touring Europe with UNKIND, Canada with FULL OF HELL, and the US with NORMA JEAN, VANNA and THE GREENERY, we’re finally at our respective homes in Virginia and Manitoba. It’s been an extremely busy year, with us on tour for the last 9 months, so we’ll be taking a well deserved month and a half off before hitting the US again with our pals RUSSIAN CIRCLES, INTER ARMA and HELMS ALEE in February (see TOUR DATES for details). Time to write some new music, drink eggnog and try to keep from freezing. It was a wild 2013, here’s to an even wilder 2014! Be good to one another.
We’ve debuted yet another video! The fine people at Exclaim! in North America, then Kerrang in Europe have put up our ‘Romeo Must Never Know’ video! Check the links, or stream the track below:
See the TOUR DATES section for constantly updated bookings. We just announced a 2013 cap off with Norma Jean, Vanna and Exotic Animal Petting Zoo in the US. More dates TBA. Big things are cooking for 2014 too!
Interesting fall so far…we just got home from Europe with our friends UNKIND, recorded a BBC session in London which will be broadcast at a later date, we won a Western Canadian Music Award for Best heavy metal/Hard music (the first award of its kind – this is becoming a trend), we were interviewed by FORBES.com, and we’re about to embark on a headlining tour of Canada with our pals Full of Hell. Expect to see us in the US before the year is through as well on a killer tour that has yet to be announced. Big things coming for 2014…writing needs to start to boot.
I figured we could make an update since it’s been a bit…
We’ve basically been on tour since ‘Entrench’ came out in March, and it’s not looking like it’ll let up any time soon. See the TOUR DATES section for our upcoming headlining dates in Europe and Canada, and look back frequently as we’re likely adding a whole load of US dates to cap off the year. Two more music videos are on the horizon as well; be on the lookout on your various social media, as I’m sure they’ll be all viral and whatnot.
