Wolves In The Throne Room



I saw WITTR last night and they were excellent. They played for about an hour and I could have easily watched them play for another. They were everything I'd hoped they'd be. It was fantastic. I tried to take some photos but most of them didn't come out very well. The only ones that came out kind of cool looking were the ones I took of the candles they had lit all over the place.

BĂȘte Noire

People just do not like me. It's painful to know that for whatever reason you are unlike the others. I've always had a hard time relating to people and I thought I'd found my way out through punk but often times I feel hurt and unloved even within a community of people who are "different". I can't seem to find unconditional acceptance anywhere. I'm awkward, I'm often times too negative and sometimes too passionate. I know there are others like me but I so infrequently find us face to face. I find them more often in the art of gray matter expeditionists that I'll never meet. That might just be my misperceptions though. Maybe it's all just fucked fate that I've brought upon myself. There's evil shit that goes on inside my head. Shit I'd never want anyone to find.

I had...

...some real moments last night. Some good moments. The cherishable type.

On another note, I have a very short list of people that I wish would fall off of the face of the planet. One of them was there last night and solidified his status.

Ignorance Truly Is Fucking Bliss

It's not necessary to always fill the air with words. Meaningless questions and conversation enrich no one and hollow out my insides on a daily basis as I struggle for air while awaiting those precious few real moments in life.

Or maybe I'm just the most unpleasant person I know, in an infinite amount of ways.

All kinds of stuff...

...has been going on.

We have a new bass player in Moutheater. Aaron had to leave due to some other stuff he had going on in his life. Our new bassist is a long time friend of mine named Brett Mathews. He was in a couple of amazing bands previously called Jesuit and The End Of The Universe. He's in another band now called The Crimson Electric that do more of a rock n roll style of stoner metal. Anyway, we're stoked to have him on board. He's a great dude and a fantastic musician.

The new record has gotten a couple of reviews. You can check them out at the Moutheater myspace (the link is over to the right).

Pre-orders are up at Thrashed Records (link also over to the right).

Our record release show is booked and looks like it's going to be pretty awesome. It's us, Heathens, Swallowed Up, Surroundings, and Brain Damage on July 5th at the Kempsville Ruritan Hall in Virginia Beach. Stoked to be playing with some friends that we don't get to see very often. Our friend Amber is doing us a huge favor and booking it and handling all of the venue stuff so in return we're going to be donating 50% of the money from our merch sales that night to her for the new DIY venue that she's opening.

We've also got another local show coming up that I'm stoked about on May 24th with Fight Amp, Kingshead, and Vicegrip.

I'm currently dubbing the Bjerga/Iversen cassettes. They should be available for order soon. The covers and everything are already done. The Debris Amour cd's will be ready after that.

That's about it for now I think.
