After seeing this band with the Police Teeth kids in Seattle last weekend, i feel like a goddamn idiot for ignoring this thread. My jaw was quite literally hanging open through the entirety of their set, and i was unable to make a sound, i was in so much awe.

And i've been listening to Night Terror nonstop. "Grandfather Claws." Oh my god, "Grandfather Claws."

I would also lambast you for ignoring my PERSONAL recommendation to you on tour as well, but I think i've flogged that horse enough. The important thing is that you are on board now.

Love that band!
So excited for their next record (or whatever).

Since I am going to be in L.A. this week, I bought a ticket to the Boris/Helms Alee show at the El Rey on Friday Aug. 27th. Looking forward to Helms Alee more than Boris.

Anyone else gonna be there?

I play bass in a band called "Drumlins" and we are playing the Sept. 9th show at the Bord Ward in Milwaukee. Anyone coming out to that one?

+1

When i saw them live i was drunk and mindblown and really wanted to talk to her and be all, "holy shit you were awesome," but i was certain i'd just end up pathetically hitting on her or something in my state of inebriation, so better judgment prevailed.

That was a great show in Milwaukee last night. I'm really glad I was able to see them. They sounded incredible, rocked great music, and were very tight.

DJ and Josh, good seeing you. How late did they end up playing? I bugged out at quarter to midnight.

According to my outgoing text message, they finished up at 11.50. So you didn't miss much.

Helluva good band. I fully throw my support behind them.

I'm not going to go into it too much now, as it doesn't do most folks much good.

But I have gotten a copy of the new record and it's probably (somehow) (amazingly) BETTER than Night Terror.

When any of you gets that record, know two things:

1. It's very good at first, but side 2 (if it ends up on one piece of vinyl) is absolutely great. Absolutely.

2. There is a song on it called Revel that ... oh my god, this song. Listen to the whole thing start to finish, but keep an eye on that song coming up. When it does, stop everything that you're doing, absolutely crank it and just listen to that song.

Like I said, not much about it now.

Christ, this record.

We just played with them a couple weeks ago on tour.
They definitely played some new stuff, it all completely slayed.

As crazy as that claim is, I believe the hell out of it!

Preorder is up. A month and a half or so of solid listening confirms that this record actually beats first one. It's incredible.

If you are going to the NYC Torche/Big Business/Helms Alee show on 7/20, PM me. I have secret news you will want to know about.
