EQUAL VISION RECORDS’ ALUMNI OUTFIT THE SOUND OF ANIMALS FIGHTING ANNOUNCE SPRING TOUR DATES, INCLUDING FIRST EVER EAST COAST SHOWS
Equal Vision Records alumni outfit The Sound of Animals Fighting, which features Anthony Green (Circa Survive), Matt Embree and Chris Tsagakis (Rx Bandits) and Rich Balling (formerly of Rx Bandits), will unite in March 2014 for a series of shows. This will be the band’s first time performing together in over seven years and will see the band performing on the East Coast for the first time ever.
The ever-evolving experimental outfit, who has carved out an incredibly unique niche in the modern musical landscape with their distinct style, shifting pool of guest artists and unique production methods, last performed in 2006 with a run of shows in San Diego, Las Vegas, Hollywood, and Anaheim – their only shows ever, until now. The magical artistic experience of the band’s previous Anaheim show was captured on film and later released as a live DVD called We Must Become The Change We Want To See.
The just announced dates will include performances of songs off of the band’s Equal Vision Records’ releases Tiger & The Duke and Lover, The Lord Has Left Us…, as well as never-before-performed songs off of their 2008 release The Ocean And The Sun [Epitaph Records]. In the signature spirit of The Sound of Animals Fighting’s always unique ventures, fans can again expect a one-of-a-kind experience at the upcoming tour dates, complete with intimate vignette solo performances by the likes of Embree, Green, and C-Gak as they enter the shows.
The Sound of Animals Fighting will be joined by Kansas post-rock practitioners The Appleseed Cast on the West Coast shows and supported by ensemble Unwed Sailor on the East Coast dates.
A special discounted bundle of The Sound of Animals Fighting’s We Must Become The Change We Want To See and Lover, The Lord Has Left Us is available now through equalvision.merchnow.com as the Equal Vision Records’ Deal of the Week.
FAVE DISNEY CHARACTERS : ONE KING : EMPEROR KUZCO Will you take a look at that? Pretty pathetic, huh? Well, you’ll never believe this, but that llama you’re looking at was once a human being. And not just any human being. That guy was an emperor. A rich, powerful ball of charisma. Oh, yeah! This is his story. Well, actually, my story. That’s right… I’m that llama. The name is Kuzco… Emperor Kuzco. I was the world’s nicest guy and they ruined my life for no reason. Oh, is that hard to believe? Look, I’ll tell you what. You go back a ways, you know, before I was a llama, and this will all make sense.
