Rock/punk from Asheville, NC.

    Supremely bummed that Just Die! called it quits. Matt and I both played in that band, though him longer than I. Despite being criminally under appreciated, they managed to last longer than most hardcore bands and accomplish more than most, and helped shape many young punks and hardcore kids in Asheville and elsewhere (including me). So many bands have come and gone in Asheville’s punk/hardcore scene, but it won’t be the same without Just Die!. 

This is my dedication to the band I both played bass in for a time and sang along to as a fan. Tattoo by Mile Rennie (Absolute Art, Richmond, VA).

    Greensboro/Baltimore/Roanoke

    What an absolute blast this past weekend was. Thank you to everyone who put us on a show (Matt Watson, Rachel Taft, Reilly Embrey), bought merch, fed us food, let us play in your house, Grant McCracken for tagging along (and even driving), all the old friends we ran into (Tara, Nate, Dan Craycray, Cali, Rachel, Stephen Kent), all the new friends we made, and all the rad bands we played with (Swordmasters of Ginaz, Dead Ellington, This is Your Life, Tiebreaker, True Worth, Hard Evidence).

    Also, if you’ve never been to Roanoke, VA, they have a sick DIY house spot that kids are really excited about. Don’t pass up on this small town with a huge hunger for great hardcore and punk music. Truly amazing place and people.

    Last night, Matt&#8217;s other band JUST DIE! played the Orange Peel. This was his response to, &#8220;How do you feel?&#8221;

    You&#8217;ll download this album if you want to know what Converge&#8217;s album &#8220;Jane Doe&#8221; would have sounded like if it was even faster, heavier, shorter, and dirtier.
