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.
On the live cd/dvd We Must Become The Change We Want To See (The Sound Of Animals Fighting, at the very end of Chasing Suns, Anthony says “You will be the last people to ever see this” and it makes me so sad because it’s true and I wasn’t there
(Yomihime) That's right, Yana can write amazing fights. If they can really shrug off lost limbs, I expect more gore in Shinigami battles in the future. Do you want to see more battles in Kuro? We kinda discussed this earlier, but I hope Kuro doesn't become as battle-oriented as most shounens. IMO Grell must be a mix of Sayaka and Kyouko :) I forgot to say that I love your William human life headcanon, is that the only one you have so far? I have one for Sascha, but it's ever changing.
Sorry I didn’t get a chance to respond sooner. >.<
I feel like in some ways we haven’t seen a proper fight since Campania (does Weston count? We saw Sebastian vs. tanks and soldiers in this arc…maybe what I’m saying is we haven’t seen Sebastian vs. shinigami in a while. So yes, more action and hand-to-hand fighting, but not the noisy kind of giant war battles where everything is lost in the shuffle.
(Ooh, yes, I can see Grell as a mix between Sayaka and Kyouko.) :)
Glad you liked the William headcanon! I’m not the greatest at coming up headcanons, so that’s basically the only one I have for his human life. As for some others, I think Will’s redemption ties in to being perfectionistic and always strictly following the rules, but I don’t know exactly what he needs to do to be redeemed. :)
