While this track didn’t seem to fit on Harmlessness, the feeling it evokes seems more appropriate to recent times. The artwork for the song depicts a modern-day Terracotta Army being torn down. It’s unsettling to see the voices of positive change in the community around you get drowned out within a world of dated and regressive ideals. In an effort to help make those voices of change heard, we’re permanently donating all the Bandcamp proceeds from this track to the non-profit and nonpartisan group the ACLU.

Artwork by Dylan Balliett. Recorded and Mixed by Chris Teti at Silver Bullet Studios.  Mastered by Dan Coutant at Sun Room Audio.

what are kinds of jobs that you've found that work well with the touring/band life? I think my band is going to start touring and what not and my current job won't be cool with me disappearing for 3 weeks

Josh is a barista, steve runs a screen printing shop and gives drum lessons, greg is a booking agent, chris teti is an audio engineer, dave transcribes college courses for deaf students, chris z does construction and youth outreach programs, derrick and katie run broken world.

Just gotta find the right hustle. I used to deliver calzones, they let me tour.

Also every single food service job I have ever had has let me tour and even adjust my availability to have weekly band practices.
