I trust everyone had a great Thanksgiving (except for those of you who aren’t United Statesians. In that case, I trust that you all had a great Thursday devoid of extreme turkey-gluttony and naps). We had a lovely Thanksgiving… thank you for asking. That being said, this mailer was supposed to be sent yesterday, but guess what… I was too busy eating leftover turkey and napping.
Now that our brief break is over, we’re right back in the studio, so I’ll try to keep this short. This is the last mailer-style warning before our quick 3 night stint (Dec. 12-14th) with I Fight Dragons, MC Lars, and SKYFOX. It will (more than likely) be quite a while before we’re back up that direction, so don’t skip it because you want to sit around and play your Pac-Man video games. If you live in the affected areas and are still ticketless, you should fix that immediately. Who knows how long they will last? Spread the word.
We added another show the next night on our “way home” in Madison, WI. For those of you who are good at geography and such, you may already know that Madison, WI is in no way on our way home… but that’s just how we do. Either way, we’re excited to be making our way back to the Madison area. Hold on to your butts.
15th – Madison, WI – The Frequency
On December 21st, we’ll be playing a fancy End Of The World Show in Nashville at 12th & Porter. I’ll go on record and say that you don’t want to miss this one. Makeup And Vanity Set will be joining us, as will Uncle Skeleton. We’ll be celebrating our newest fancy release, a super bad ass cassette single for Drove All Night from our forthcoming covers record. The B-side is a revamped version of Breaking Out (as well as other secrets). Intriguing, right? Also… we just may play that Act III jam again… and maybe some other things. Come end the world with us!
21st – Nashville, TN – 12th & Porter
The next night (if the world somehow remains), we’ll be playing in Columbus, OH at Armageddicon‘s End Of The World After Party. Honestly, if the world doesn’t end the night before, the kids of Armageddicon are sure to do the job on the 22nd. They’re absolutely insane. Don’t miss this.
22nd – Columbus, OH – Sheraton (ARMAGEDDICON)
CYBORG MONDAY – WWW.ednesday
For those of you who don’t know already, today is/was Cyborg Monday. A day of online savings, shopping, and superness. Our SoundMachine Store is taking part in this fancy online sale, but we’re not stopping there. We’re extending our savings over the next 3 days. Cyborg Monday, Terminating (prices) Tuesday, and WWW.ednesday (we just coined that… and if we didn’t… don’t tell us). It is a storewide 20% discount ENDING at 11:59PM CST on WEDNESDAY. We need to make room for some fancy new merch things on that page, so buy it all before it’s gone.

Also coming down the pipeline very shortly is the 2nd pressing of the Act I vinyl. Instead of colored vinyl, this time we’re doing 180gram vinyl. It’s sure to sound even better than the last version (which I think is already the best sounding release of that album). Only 1,000 are being pressed this round, so keep an eye out. We’ll let you know when they’re ready. And before some of you ask… the long rumored Act II Vinyl is in the works, too… we swear (it’s just a little further off).
Since we’re in the re-releasing mood, I supposed it’s time to bring back a slightly revamped version of the first shirt we ever made. This heather grey American Apparel shirt will be very limited in quantity (300). Check it out. Get one or twenty before they’re gone again.
If we make it through the month of December, you should all come celebrate the world’s survival with us in National Harbor, MD (right outside D.C.). MAGFest 11 is happening from January 3rd-6th, and they’ve asked us to come play some fancy jams for them! It’s going to be one hell of a weekend. We play on the 5th (Sat). Here’s to hoping the future still exists… Get tickets now!
We need all the hope that we can get,
