Tour Wrap-Up/Last Shows of 2012
Last week was incredible. We still can’t believe the positive responses we have received. Or the fact that we sold out of all 35 copies of “Spite” we brought with us. And while it ended a little off with having to pay for van repairs before we could headed home, the trip as a whole more than outweighed that minor negative aspect. Matt already wrote a pretty detailed run down of the tour (which you should take the time to read), so lemme end this with our final dates of 2012.
12/1 - Asheville, NC @ The Get Down: LP Release show featuring Late Bloomer, Muscle & Bone, Means Well
12/2 - Savannah, GA @ Taco Abajo w/ Hollowed Out
12/15 - Charlotte, NC @ The Milestone w/ Oddczar, Apart, Muscle & Bone, Barrow, Radio Reds
12/21 - Asheville, NC @ The Get Down w/ You’ll Live, Muscle & Bone, Quiet Clouds, Lions, Fresh Prints (End of the World Party!)
12/31 - Johnson City, TN @ The Hideaway w/ Sundale, Mic Company
Thanks to everyone who was involved in setting up our shows, who came to see us play, who bought us merch, who let us crash on their couch/floor, who took us to great places to eat, who walked around new cities with us, who played shows with us, to our road dogs from tour and all other shows prior, to all of our friends who love us dearly and support us, to our families, and to everyone else who has been part of this amazing experience for the past two years. You know who you are. You are incredible and we love you. Here’s to another Year of Fling!
"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.
