Show at the Lamplighter

Looking forward to performing at The Lamplighter Public House on Thursday night! The digs have been freshly renovated, complete with scratch ‘n sniff coasters and 50 different beers on tap. We take the stage at 10pm, armed with a variety of sonic treats and an industry leading, alcohol tolerance level. Party time, excellent.

ALMOST DONE

We are super happy to announce that like our friend the groundhog, we are finally popping out from hiding in winter’s cave. We are just finishing up final masters for our new record (title to be released soon, though some potential titles were Sports II, Mike’s Long Schlong, Wasted Cory, and 3 out of 5 Dad’s Named Bob) all recorded at Fader Mountain with the wizardry of the one and only, Paul Boechler.

The first single we’ll be premiering in the nest few days, so stay tuned!

Common Courtesy for the Kids!

We couldn’t be happier to have been a part of the Save On Meats presents Common Courtesy Vol 1 Launch Party!!!! The compilation album was released last Thursday, the 27th,  with all proceeds going to Kids Up Front (Vancouver). It was seriously an insane show. From the cops showing up, to Alexis smashing her tambourine on the ground thrasher-style (she says it was an accident, but we’re pretty sure she was momentarily possessed by Sid Vicious).

BIG UP’S to Adam Fink (from Gang Signs and every other band) and Jason Corbett (from ACTORS) for putting this together. I mean C’MON… 30 freakin’ songs from 30 amazing Vancouver acts! To the rest of the music world, I say “check mate”. Hope y’all take a listen to see what our great city has been stirring up. Take a listen here: http://commoncourtesy101.bandcamp.com/

Here’s the premiere of our brand new video “Behaviours”, courtesy of Exclaim! Thanks to our friends BKS Crew Productions Inc. and all of the actors involved!

Exciting Things A’brewing!

Lots to get crunk about between now and the end of March. We’ll be spinning Bill Cosby and Metalica at Save On Meats Sat. Feb. 23rd to celebrate our 6th anniversary. From there, we’re off to shoot a new video with our friends at BKS Crew Productions Inc. SWS will kick-off March with the release of a free remix EP for “Times Electric” and finish the month with another barf-inducing video release party at COME FRIDAY Mar. 29th!

We’re Updating!

Hello!

We’re back! And we apologize about the delay. We have all been working really hard on our music, and we’ve also got real jobs (except Alexis who is still getting learned, and will probably be a transient forever) so we’ve kind of been too distracted to give our website the love it deserves. But no longer! Stay tuned for updates, because we’ve got some exciting things brewing…

We love you all.
