tiger & the Duke



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.

All upcoming tour dates can be found below. Tickets for all shows will go on sale Friday, November 15 at 12pm local time, here: http://www.thesoundofanimalsfighting.com.

The Sound of Animals Fighting - Act:II: All is Ash or the Light Shining Through.

I can’t explain why i can’t stop listening to this song….

Hey Tumblr it’s The Big Rufus back again once again. Im sorry I haven’t been regularly posting school sports and etc have been catching up you know how it is. Anyways thank you for all the support the love and the comments from all the previously done post I enjoy this a lot and I really care about this topic. Now to the topic at hand the NCAA Tournament finally has concluded. An I am sad to say I was nowhere near close to the final outcome to how the Madness concluded. Duke basketball ends up with the victory over a very strong Wisconsin team and wins their 5th basketball championship. This actually ties them with their in-state rival North Carolina who also has won 5 championships.Let me tell that was before I was alive so I do not count that haha(and before you all say something Lsu has won a championship in my time 2007 to be exact so ha). Lets talk about the game. In the beginning Duke and Wisconsin were on par with each other they were going back in forth bucket after bucket it was a great game, then Wisconsin started making threes it looked like they were playing a 2k game of My Park with Joseph Jordan (My MyPlayer currently) they pulled away at that point. At that point I was already on Twitter looking at the salt Duke fans were putting on there, heck people were turning off the televisions and going to sleep. I promise you 3 min after I closed twitter the young Duke freshman guard Grayson Allen went completely off and before you know it bam Coach K is cutting the net once again. In my oppion this was one of the best NCAA Tournaments I have watched in a while. All the games were really competitive and even if I didn’t win a million dollars of a perfect bracket (See my Bracket post) I got some really great games and wonderful stories. What about you? How do you feel about Duke winning this years tournament and the caliber of the games?

Detroit Tigers 2, Chicago White Sox 1: Game 10 Player of the Game

Who was the Tigers’ player of the game in today’s 2-1 win over the White Sox? The Detroit Tigers have been locked in a few pitching duels lately, but they continue to come out on top. Today, David price and Jeff Samardzija went toe-to-toe at Comerica Park, and the Tigers were able to walk off winners against Zach Duke and the Chicago White Sox in the ninth inning. Jose Iglesias got the glory today, slapping a single into right-center field to score Andrew Romine in the bottom of the ninth inning, delivering the Tigers a 2-1 win. Iglesias also doubled off White Sox starter Jeff Samardzija with no outs in the seventh inning, but was stranded on base. Nick Castellanos was the other half of that ninth inning run-scoring combo. Castellanos doubled to right field, though replays show he was tagged on a throw by rightfielder Avisail Garcia. The aggressive play was probably a little foolhardy from the young third baseman — especially since he knows Garcia has a great throwing arm — but the Tigers got away with a blown call. Castellanos had a second hit in the game and made a couple of solid defensive plays as well. David Price was almost an afterthought after the ninth inning heroics, but the Tigers’ ace was able to shake off some early struggles to put together another spectacular outing. Price threw eight innings and allowed just one run, a solo shot to right field from Garcia in the second inning. Price only allowed four hits and struck out nine. He has allowed just one earned run in 22 1/3 innings this season. Yoenis Cespedes delivered the Tigers’ other run, launching a mammoth home run off Samardzija into the left field seats in the bottom of the fourth inning. It was Cespedes’ first home run of the year, but he is still slugging .512 thanks to four doubles and a triple. Your browser does not support iframes.
