I dont know if i got any followers around Ontario, but my band is playing a couple of shows there. share plz.
1. Originally everyone is from Montclair, NJ, while I ( Tyler) am from Lodi, NJ.
2. I play guitar in the band.
3. A split 5” with Arrows in her and we are contributing a track for the swollen lungs 7” compilation featuring bands such as MNWA, Discord of a forgotten sketch, Gas up yr hearse, coma regalia, carrion spring ETC.
4.At the time of our demo recording our ages spanned 16-20, we were very young and did it all ourselves. Also, we feature members of the band Tawny Peaks. Whom, are quite amazing.
5. The guidelines “S/T EP” released last year was probably the best release of 2012. I know Josh ( our other guitarist) and I love bands like Capacities, Guidelines, 7 Angels 7 Plagues and Loma Prieta. Also, we listen to a shit load of corny metalxcore.
6. We are close with and love Dirtdrinker, Gifts, Mallard, Arrows in her, Capacities, Tawny peaks, Guidelines and Toasted Plastic!! Kyeo Speaks and Seven inches to freedom are two of my favorite zines for sure. Mark chen is the funniest dude on facebook.
7. I think we are all aiming to express ourselves and do something different. I hope that with our future releases we show that we want to break the mold and change what people expect from your average screamo or “skramz” band. I, myself want to simply sound like the kind of band that i’d love to see at a show or hear.
8. Isabel was very close with the monk Daido Loori in her life.
9. In Philly, I was hella schway.
10. Not even we know what the future holds, but hopefully we will continue to put out music. Expect new songs to be darker, longer and to blow the demo out of the water. We will be touring the east coast and midwest with DIRTDRINKER from the UK this summer. I hope that we can leave an everlasting mark on each of our listeners. Thank you for asking us to participate in this interview, though we were so late to reply!

someone tags the bathroom at soybomb and all the dude bros get pissed cause it’s someones house. but people coming into the space who have CONSISTENTLY asked soybomb to remove their offensive signs that use shitty language and that insinuate offensive behaviour get called a bunch of pc-fun ruining…
soybomb is one of the best venue, not only in Toronto and its runs by some very good people.

Leaving Toronto and the hospitality of Skramden Yards was such sweet sorrow but we knowing Montreal was our next stop was enough to get everyone up at 9 a.m…. even though we didn’t leave till 1.
The show in Montreal was nuts. There was lots of excitement and beautiful people speaking French. At the end of Ittō’s set, a dude got slammed into a wall and starting bleeding from his head. He left a huge smear on the wall alongside a giant dent.
After the show was over, we all went out to get poutine. It was worth the wait. Yummmm.
I love these Chicago boys. Can’t wait to see them again.
