We are excited to make an announcement regarding SOME of our plans, projects, and general doings for 2013 (outside of playing shows, of course).
In the coming weeks, we will begin tracking for several releases this year, three of which are split 7”s we have already announced:
a split 7” with CENTER OF THE SUN via Self Aware Records
a split 7” with THE FAKE BOYS via Bitter Melody Records
and a split 7” with LATE BLOOMER via Kiss of Death Records
We’re pretty damn excited, so keep your eyes and ears open for info regarding those babies.
As for the releases we haven’t brought up yet, those announcements will come in due time. We can’t talk about them yet (we don’t wanna jinx it, ya know), but chances are you’ll almost be as excited as we are. Trust us when we say that no secret is too tiny.
Anyway, here are the latest updates to our list of dates for the year, which include a weekender with Atlanta’s BURNERS, a short string of shows with Orlando’s THE NEW LOWS, and various Spring festivals in the South East!

SPITE is officially available for digital download! You can get it from iTunes, Amazon, our Bandcamp, Google Play, MediaNet, eMusic, Zune, Rhapsody, Nokia, iHeart Radio, Verve Life, simfy, Muve Music, and Spotify!
As we mentioned before, the album will be available on vinyl in the next week or so. We apologize for the delay, as the pressing plant have been backed up all summer. Self Aware and Bitter Melody will begin fulfilling preorders as soon as they receive the records in the mail.
If you have already preordered the record, you will receive an e-mail from Self Aware Records or Bitter Melody Records, depending on who you ordered through, about redeeming your digital download. Please remember that both labels are small, one-man-operations, so please be patient. :)

HEADS UP: Tomorrow, our new record “SPITE” will be available digitally via iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Bandcamp, and other various digital avenues. We’re still patiently awaiting the finished pressing of vinyl copies, but we’re hoping for next week. In the mean time, Self Aware Records has only a handful of rare red copies left! And Bitter Melody is still selling black copies for preorder, too.

End of Summer Jams
Welp, a lot has been going on in Fling Land. Our drummer, Travis, is vacating the throne he founded in our band and starting a career as a trucker. We’ll miss you sweet baby love, but are proud of you growing up to be part of America’s backbone.
Self Aware Records have officially announced on their Facebook page that they will be hosting preorders for our full-length NEXT WEEK! Mark you calendars: head over to the Self Aware Records webstore on August 1st and reserve your copy of SPITE on hot wax! The first 100 preorders get it on sexy red vinyl. There will only be 300 LPs pressed this go ‘round, so get on it with the quickness.
Here are the shows we have confirmed for the next month!
- 7/31/12 - Columbia, SC @ New Brookland Tavern w/ Oddczar, I Am Carpenter, South Harbor
- 8/3/12 - Asheville, NC @ The Get Down w/ Random Conflict, The BAMFs, Drunk in a Dumpster, Killing Solves Everything
- 8/11/12 - Johnson City, TN @ The Hideaway w/ Sundale, Last in Line, Wooden Toothe
- 8/14/12 - Richmond, VA @ Church of Abe w/ Family Cat
- 8/25/12 - Baltimore, MD @ The Sidebar Tavern for Feed the Scene: One Year Anniversary
Sadly, the 31st through the 11th will be Travis’ final three shows with us. We’ll be getting someone to fill in on the 14th and 25th, and hopefully a permanent replacement soon.
So long and see you at the shows!
On May 4th, we’ll be entering the studio to record our first full-length, “SPITE”, which will be released jointly via BITTER MELODY RECORDS and SELF-AWARE RECORDS. We are very excited to share with you the evolution of our sound from our early Demo CD. It’s always a little funny sending people a link or CD to songs that you personally don’t feel embody the sound and aesthetic of your band. Not the songs themselves, you see, but how they are conveyed musically. Those songs are being re-recorded to match what we feel is a better representation of Old Flings, as they are perfectly good songs and need not be thrown away.
We hope you will love this record as much as we do. Thank you to everyone who has been consistently coming to see us play since our very first show with Iron Chic back at the Edge Frat and to everyone who buys shit from us or offers us shows to play! We are so excited to carry this torch on and play music that not only we love to play, but we love to share with you.
Lastly, here are our plans for after recording:
- 5/19/12 - Charlotte, NC @ Common Market for Treasure Fest w/ Rubrics, Restorations, Double Negative, Campaign, Black Wine, Just Die!, many more
- 6/2/12 - Johnson City, TN @ Blue Plum Festival on the Roan St. Stage w/ Cutthroat Shamrock, Mona Lisa Tribal Dance, This Mountain, more
- 6/14/12 - Asheville, NC @ TBA w/ Family Cat
- 6/15/12 - Nashville, TN @ TBA w/ Family Cat
- 6/16/12 - Memphis, TN @ Crosstown Arts w/ Family Cat
- 6/17/12 - Atlanta, GA @ Wonder Root w/ Family Cat, Burners
- 6/25/12 - Asheville, NC @ The Murder Basement w/ You Blew It (FL), Ents, Muscle & Bone
- 6/29/12 - Durham, NC @ Motorco Music Hall for DTFH Fest w/ Mikey Erg, Red Collar, Fake Boys, The Holy Mess, many more
- 7/21/12 - Charlotte, NC @ Tremont Music Hall for Breed Fest w/ Dead in the Dirt, Dreamend, Blue Streak, Pale Fire, many more
We’re way stoked for the weekender with FAMILY CAT! Most everything is solid except for the June 15th date, which will likely be in Alabama, Chattanooga, or elsewhere, as Nashville is turning out to be a dead end right now.
