Our friends Rational Anthem just finished recording their new full length album that will be coming out in early spring 2012, and this is a track from it that will be appearing on this year’s Swamp Comp! IT RULES, POSERS. LISTEN TO THAT SHIT.
We are featured on this compilation along with other rad bands such as Creeper, Rational Anthem, The Creeps, and more!

They played a show in my town, and we ate burritos and ice cream and went to an arcade, it was pretty badass. I love those guys.
Oh and Chris Hembro stole my lost boys DVD on accident and sent it back all scratched up. I am never letting him live it down. What an asshole.
