Greetings everyone, we’re flying out to the Power Of The Riff festival in Los Angeles this weekend and wanted to drop a line with our upcoming tour dates and a new video for “Lost In Groningen”.
Western North American Tour with Burning Love:
Thanks to everyone who came out for the first half of the Coliseum / Burning Love North American tour. We’ll be kicking off the second leg starting August 27th in Chicago, all the dates are below. It’s been a while since we’ve been to most of these spots and we’re really looking forward to the tour.
House With A Curse LP/CD Out Now:
Our third album, House With A Curse, was released June 22nd on Temporary Residence Limited and seems to be our most well-received record yet. Folks at SPIN, Decibel, The Onion AV Club, Alternative Press, and many others had very nice and humbling words to say about the record. We’re incredibly happy with the record and it’s great to get it out there and share it with everyone. All of the colored vinyl from the first pressing is sold out, but the nice embossed / spot gloss LP jackets are still available from Temporary Residence and Shirt Killers.
New video for “Lost In Groningen”:
Our collaborators on the “Blind In One Eye” video, Matt Whitson and Justin Gaar, are part of the Emmy-winning Alabama Public Television program We Have Signal. They filmed us at the first show of our tour in June at the fabulous Bottletree in Birmingham and have given us an exclusive multi-camera / multi-track audio clip of “Lost In Groningen” to share prior to the airing of the show in coming months. The video is on our Facebook and Vimeo sites, so swing over and check it out!
European / UK Tour:
We’ll be returning to Europe and the UK for the first time since our 2008 tour with Converge and Integrity, this time with an awesome bill featuring Vancouver’s Bison BC and Norway’s Kvelertak as support. Spanning most of November and a bit of early December, we’re covering as much ground as we can manage and are so looking forward to returning to some of our favorite locations in the world. It’s going to be a great bill and a great time. Check out the dates below.

Hey guys, get your girl something nice – a Jamie Prott original from Skull Alley’s new Etsy store! These aren’t the kind of goods that will end up on Regretsy. Help out Jamie and Skull Alley by picking up one of these or a One Small Step shirt from the site. More shirts will likely be available in the near future, so check back often.
“This design was hand drawn (or rather, hand-doodled) and then screenprinted onto ultra soft Alternative Apparel girls shirts with professional grade soft-hand inks. These shirts are super super soft and comfortable, lightweight, and fashion cut.”

Via Keith Lucius on the forums:
“Since Louisville shows are on another level right now and pretty much all of the bands are awesome I’ve decided to get together a tape compilation of a handful of locals as a way to sample whats going on in the city right now. Each band will have one demo or older song and one song that is exclusive to the tape. The original pressing will be hand numbered out of 100 and will include a professionally made layout and an included link for a digital download. Here is who is currently involved in the project…
If you have an active hardcore band in Louisville and want to be included on the comp, please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I want to include Skinwalkers and Will Allards new band on this but I dont have anyone in those bands direct contact info. If you guys are interested let me know.
This will be coming out under the Living Touch Records moniker I created to book shows/put out a couple bands demos with circa 03-05. We’ll have a site up shortly and will be putting out demo/ep tapes for Written Off, Mustangs and Another Mistake. Theres a lot of stuff were trying to do and its all coming together shortly.
For now we have a crappy blogspot where you can check out updates on releases/shows/etc. livingtouchrecords.blogspot.com. That will have a more extensive update shortly as well. Stay tuned.”
