"Black Hearts" Fall Tour 2012

Okay, here is as much complete information regarding our upcoming tour as we have at the time of departure. First off, let me say how I wish we could be heading out for longer than just 8 days, but my job and my desire to not have to look for work right before the holidays prevented that from happening.
Second, we are all very excited to be taking two friends with us: Ally Hoffman, who I used to know from hanging out in Charlotte every other weekend in 2004. Ally moved back to Charlotte from Austin a few months ago and now sings in an amazing new band called CENTER OF THE SUN. Check them out if you love gloomy, poppy, dreamy stuff, and My Bloody Valentine. Next, we will be picking up Roger Anderson in his hometown of Richmond, VA. Roger plays bass for two of Richmond’s best bands, SPRINGTIME and FAMILY CAT. We love Roger immensely and can’t wait to spend a week with him. Ladies, he is single and ready to mingle.

Now, onto the tour!

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.

Ta-ta for now. Don’t forget to order the new t-shirt before we run out!http://oldflings.bigcartel.com/product/holy-fuck-tee
