    I know I must have some followers on here who are Defeater fans:

    In case you weren’t aware, Derek has been sidelined for several months now by a deteriorating hip that’s forced the band to curtail all touring until he undergoes surgery. Unfortunately, both insurance and workman’s comp have declined to cover the high cost of the operation…so it’s down to a crowdfunding project to defray the costs. As an incentive, we got together in my studio and collaborated on an Alcoa “covers” EP (featuring songs from I Am The Avalanche, Blacklisted and more), plus an alternate live version of Defeater’s “I Don’t Mind.” The digital version can be had for a $5 pledge, and a limited handmade CD is available at $20.

    Please consider giving what you can if Defeater or Alcoa have brought you any joy and you’d like to see ‘em back on the road. We’re all well-aware of the Kickstarter stigma, but punk cred be damned. Derek is an extremely kind and genuine person who’s too talented and too passionate to stay dormant for long.

    Derek and the rest of the Defeater guys have been very cool to us over the years and we hate to see them inactive. Please donate at a level commensurate with your interest, if not more.

    Almost at 69%! lol!

    Keep on giving though.

     

  3. Anonymous said: Are those shirts that were up for preorder a while ago going to be shipped out soon?

    Yes! Sorry, I meant to send out emails about it. The shipment will be in our hands this week and orders will be sent out immediately!

     
  4. These are our next shows, a short northeast run immediately following the release of ‘Head In The Clouds, Hands In The Dirt.’ We’ll have copies of that, plus ‘I’m Not The Lonely One’ and our 4-way split 7” with Native Wildlife/Glass Lungs/Killing Thing.

    We’ll be documenting the shows for a tour diary feature for Funeral Sounds as well, so look out for that and get a glimpse into our sorry lives.

    We’ll definitely be back later this year, which is dope because our last show in Richmond was one of the best we’ve ever played!!

    Got another new song from ‘Head In The Clouds, Hands In The Dirt’ coming in a couple days. In the meantime, give “Pipe Dreams” another spin, or show it to a friend or five.
