our summer plans got totally fucked. we are keeping it low key until we start then finish recording our lp towards the end of this summer.
we are playing a show this tuesday with off with their heads, dear landlord, and fire first.
we played an “acoustic” set two nights ago with midi and the modern dance, ninjessa (pa), and birth of flower and the show was really fun. if you can hunt these bands down, please check them out, lots of interesting talent and really diverse musically. whenever i hear bands as awesome as the three listed above, i cant help but get inspired, and think “wow, i wish i was as good as this band.”
see you “soon.”

So today was supposed to be our Gainesville show, but it shit the bed. NO WORRIES, we have been relaxing in Tampa for the day with our friends Tyler and Woody, and got some well earned rest from our pretty wild trip here in the south.
A huge thanks to Greg and D-ray for helping us out while we were in New Orleans. They drove us around, let us use their kitchen, crash on their floor, and were extremely accommodating! Please check out their record label Community Records because “they’re doing good things down in New Orleans.”
A giant thank you to The Rooks, Chilled Monkey Brains, Paranoia Dance Party, Fatter than Albert, the Brunt of It, and The Flaming Tsunamis for letting us borrow gear and being really fun people to be on “tour” with the last few days. It’s so comforting to see everyone pull together to make something great happen! Everyone that helped out with The Block Party and the Florida shows, thanks so much!
May will be a slow month for us while we finish recording our lp. We will be playing with Paramedic! and Spraynard as they hit the road with their new split 7”. Support the Square of Opposition.
OH and here is a video of us playing at chris’s house! Thanks robert!
See you soon-ish.

Hey everyone, we are currently in the eye of the storm of our endless spring. I’m sitting in a photo studio in Nashville, Tennessee in my underwear with a space blanket with Andy. We are driving some equipment down to the Block Party in New Orleans and our drive has been really incredible. We had a back road detour in Kentucky yesterday where we rolled over hills and through meadows, it was really fucking cool for a kid who grew up in the city his whole life.
Anyways, this is one of our songs off our tour cd-r which you can see at our following shows this spring. If you were at any of our shows in New York or Pennsylvania two weeks ago, we just want to say thank you for checking us out and we will hopefully see you soon!

Why we shouldn’t carry knives.
So over the weekend, we played a few shows out of state. We were fortunate enough to see and play with lots of friends son it goes without saying that we have a few thanks…
All the friends: killed it thursday and saturday night! Please be their friends and check out their music!
PINK COFFINS: made me less ashamed of the fact I still like 90’s style hardcore.
Paramedic!: let us borrow gear and let us hop on their show last minute in Philadelphia! The new songs are so good and I can’t wait for the split with spraynard (who we met and are so nice!)
Useless children: GO SEE THIS BAND WHILE THEY ARE ON TOUR IN THE STATES YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED.
Sam gursky and Cody Klein get super thanks for the show and vegan big mac pizza respectively. Chris Regec for printed our shirts and let us stay in the eagle’s nest. 1994! was super nice and so fucking good. Our buds in Snowing came to see us too, awesome!
With that being said, we are super excited to go and play Louisiana and Florida next week. Come say hi to us!
We also have t-shirts. here’s a poor quality photo:
They are 100% sustainable and locally printed/manufactured in the lehigh valley. Printing by xLVACx and put together by a garment workers union nearby. Woo! They’re $13 shipped, $10 at shows. Email us: swearjarct (at) gmail (dot) com if you want one.
OH AND WE’RE PLAYING THIS SATURDAY IN CONNECTICUT WITH SO MANY GOOD BANDS:
