Tour update #1

Hello again, friends.

Today is day three of our nine day tour across one quarter of the US. Things have gone well so far. The van still runs, there's a picture of Rob, the bus, and a Flying J above.

Tonight we play Grand Rapids, tomorrow Milwaukee. Nothing of interest has happened yet, all in due time...



Things of note

We just finished a weekend with Trainwreck and Comadre. Wonderful people doing wonderful things whom I hope that you will support.

Our future holds for us a show or two. On the 20th of this very month we return to Edison to rage with good friends Suburban Scum and Soul Control. Come hang out in the bus with us.

We leave for tour on the 11th of July. Dates are as follows:

11 - Pittsburgh

12 - Lakewood, OH

13 - Grand Rapids, MI

14 - Milwaukee, WI

15 - Chicago, IL

16 - Dayton, OH

17 - Lancaster, PA

18 - Richmond, VA

19 - Shamong, NJ

On the 25th, we enter Steve Roche's studio to record for two upcoming split records that we're very excited about. One split 7" with our friends in Fleshtemple. Another split 12" with our good friends Swallowed Up. We've been playing a few of the songs out now and I personally am looking forward to hearing them recorded.

Mosh naked,

Here we go...

I was sitting around in my living room with Rob today and he mentioned that he had set up a blogspot for Zhenia Golov in an effort to avoid myspace. I was, in a word, inspired. This is a blogspot for the New Jersey band Black Kites. It will function a lot like the blog thing that's on our myspace. I'll also put some songs up as well, if I can figure it out. 

March 5, 2009 we are playing in New Brunswick with our good friends Fleshtemple and Seasick and Divisions who are on tour from Florida. Fleshtemple are some of my favorite dudes around and they'll be releasing their first 7", which is a certified rager, at this show.

March 6, 2009 we are playing in Clifton with our good friends Fleshtemple and Troublemaker. The venue is called Dingbats. I hear bikers hang there, so come in (faux) leather.

March 14, 2009 we are playing in Lancaster, Pennsylvania with Sinaloa who are on tour. I think it should be a good time. I'll update this when I figure out where it is in Lancaster we're playing.

March 15, 2009 will be our record release show in Pine Brook with a bunch of cool bands. It's at the Gardensk8 skate park. It's an excellent venue and I hope a lot of people come out. We'll have our records available of course. There are probably 40 or so of the clear left. I think that we will have some kind of record release cover available. We will also have t-shirts available for the first time in our nearly year long existence as a band. 

In the works: new songs for various planned splits, maybe some more shirts, new covers, etc...
