"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.

Enter the Doomsday Year!
2011 has been a fun year for us. Over this past year, we went from being a small-time, “on the side” sort of project to giving serious priority to our endeavors and making an effort to construct this band into a true and constant outlet for Matt, Travis, and I. Thus, we are very excited to enter 2012 with a bunch of shows already lined up, with the likes of The Menzingers and the Ataris!
