I stepped out into the night and put my feet down on the wet patio floor The sky’s air had been cooling and steam rose from everywhere I could feel drops of rain slipping off tree’s leaves and splattering to the ground It’s always misty after a summer pour And I’ll remember turning around and looking out And staring in and focusing on this one beautiful girl And I said, “Oh who is this? Where was she all those crazy years? Where was she when my heart couldn’t take its beat?” I sipped down some warm ginger ale And drew back a breath And headed over to see about this girl I couldn’t say a thing and I just stared open and wide And I connected with her eyes to feel my gut fall through the floor Oh my god, I think I’m falling.
and they meet late on a Saturday in the grip of winter’s chapped lips one’s blind to all he has inside one’s sure that he knows what life’s got in store and when the stars and drunks have left the bar He says, “we’ve just met, but I’ve seen you around, can we share a car?” back to my place with movies made about outer space and so it seems they’re off to share their wasted dreams
That was our response when anyone asked us about details of our upcoming tour. We hope you picked up the clues. If not, we’re now showing you the answers that were always waiting in the back of the book. Are the rumors true? Yes. We’re going on tour with Say Anything, Reggie and the Full Effect, and we’re rippin THROUGH BEING COOL from front to back.
All summer long, we were chillin and rippin on the Vans Warped Tour, meeting so many of you, making new friends, and just having a blast. We never wanted it to end. Thirty minutes a day isn’t enough. And now, we’re coming back around to play TBC and more. We’re fully psyched!
Say Anything is performing …IS A REAL BOY. This album is 10 years old. Reggie and The Full Effect is performing UNDER THE TRAY… this album is 11 years old.
THROUGH BEING COOL is 15 years young. Picture a 15-year-old kid who just got a learner’s permit, and the waves of glee they experience when they first put the car in drive. That’s gonna be us every night. Buckle up.
And yet, for the sum total years between the three bands, this is new. No one’s done it the way we’re doing this now. Every night: three bands, three albums. Full Bananas.
This one goes out to all the old punks, all the young punks, every backpack-wearing emo kid, everyone who was at St. Vitus September 2013, everyone who wasn’t at St. Vitus September 2013, our past selves, and our future selves.
