Update


Hello !


So here's a quick update since the last time we touched base on this thing. 


We started recording LP 2. It's going well and we're enjoying the process. Unsure when it will be out.


We just released a 7" titled Ring Around the Room for Record Store Day. It can be heard streaming by the kind folks at Stereogum HERE. It's possible all the physical copies are sold out but its available for digital purchase.



Next - We will be joining Ceremony and Tony Molina this summer for a run of shows starting in Omaha, NB ending somewhere in the Bay Area that may or may not be announced yet.  We will also be playing the first date of this tour in Visalia, CA. Tickets are on sale now. All info in the shows tab. 




That should be it for now. 

See ya,

-CA.

Update


Friends,

We've been quite busy. 

First off, we decided to put out a split with our Bay Area brothers in WILD MOTH and the pre-orders are available HERE from Broke Hatre (or click the cover art, which was done by our incredibly talented friend Angelina Rodrigues). If you'd like to stream this 7" the kind folks over at Brooklyn Vegan have it available HERE.




Second, we are finally coming to the East Coast and we're very excited to announce that its with our friends in Self Defense Family (Whom we also just announced another split 7"with due on Deathwish/Run For Cover and can be read about HERE) and Makthaverskan. The tour poster is below. 



When we mentioned the insane show in a small space earlier this month, we were talking about a show at The Hemlock with Total Abuse, Face The Rail and Culture Abuse. Unfortunately, Total Abuse ran into some trouble and had to cancel their west coast tour. So this show has been cancelled. But....we DO have a wonderful show to replace this coming down the pipe. There will be more room and it will be FREE. Details closer to the end of the month. Gonna be a crazy one...

Also, we will be joining Sabertooth Zombie and King Woman on two separate occasions to celebrate the release of their records. Details for each of those shows are to your left.

Los Angeles!!! We will be joining MOON DUO (Sacred Bones) for a show at Los Globos presented by Blundertown March 24th.


We have two more 7"s to announce, dates booked to record another LP and more shows on deck. 



Think thats it for now.

Over and Out,

-CA.

Hello Friends,

We will be playing two shows this week alongside some friends of ours. Those will be on Weds and Thurs in Santa Rosa and Oakland, California. Flyers are posted below.

In November we will be embarking on a tour of the west coast with our pals in Self Defense Family and Wild Moth. We'll be announcing some 7" pre-order information about a week before that, so keep an eye out. 

We have other 7"s at the press as well while starting to write a new LP. Still looking at the East Coast and Europe.  

Hope Yr Good,

-CA.





Hello. Hello. Hello

 We've added two new shows. One being in LA at The Bootleg Theater with the mighty OBITS (Sub Pop) and Toys That Kill. For some reason we arent opening even though all reasoning says we should? No matter.

 The other show will be in Santa Rosa with our friends in The Coathangers and Ex-Cult. Sure to be a good time as I (guess who) am a personal fan of both bands. Santa Rosa's Creep Beat will be opening that show joined by Zig Zags who are on tour with Ex-Cult. Should be a good time.  Will post a flyer for this ASAP. 


A friendly reminder we will be playing the Elbo-Room in SF July 9th with friends Wild Moth, Creepers and Drab Majesty. This show is FREE FREE FREE FREE. Unfortunately 21+ but as its been stated before, let us know if you really need to get in and we can try to work something out. 


Oh....and also we just finished recording a ton (over five but less than ten) of new songs for some splits, Ep's and a single or something like that. Information about these releases will be trickling out in the coming months. 


Currently working on getting some tours set up and trying to beat this summer heat. Better off staying indoors I say. 


Thanks for everything,

-CA.

Ps. Recent Playlist includes but no limited to::::: Obliterations, The Fall, Loma Prieta, Zed Cutsinger, Sick Feeling, Ceremony, Wild Moth,  Everybody Row, 1234Go! Records, Tony Molina, Antwon, RFC, Torso, Cloakroom, Synthetic I.D, White Lung, Youth Code, Dark Blue (Skins) Blaque Chris and PROFILE. Peace!




Its getting hot out.




Whats up

Were playing two shows in June and July while recording some new stuff. Both are free. One is in Oakland and one in SF. After that, were doing three shows with Fell To Low, Basement and Cloakroom. Those shows are all sold out but if you really really really need to get into a show for some reason, get in touch and we will see what we can do.  Lots of things are happening. 

Do whatever you want,

-CA.



Welcome Home


Hello old friends

It's been a while... hasn't it? We hope you are in good health and doing well.
 

We have returned home from tour and are feeling refreshed. The shows were fun and we are planning to be leaving again shortly. As of tomorrow, Psychic Mess will have been out for one month. The support we have been shown is at times, overwhelming. We thank you for that. Thank you to anyone who has purchased our album, bought a garment from us, come to a show or told a friend about our message. We are fueled with the energy to continue onward by your support.


South by Southwest was hectic to say the least and was as always, a curious moral grey area. Consumed by industry and handshakes we put our heads down and made our way through the early mornings and late nights. Good to see old friends and new. We know who our allies are.

We will be playing a few shows around the Bay Area in March and April w/ friends in Criminal Code, Vexx, Loma Prieta, The New Trust, Yodaki and a handful of others. The shows list on the left tab has been updated, so go ahead and check those if you feel so inclined. In the next few weeks(ish?) we will be announcing more and more dates. Photo's currently being developed will be posted to the blog for some visual evidence of our trip to Austin, Tx as well.


Be Well,

-CA.




Hello

So here is the information for our Record Release shows in SF. Two nights in a row. One is 21+ but the first isnt, so come to that one if you're not of age. These will undoubtedly be a good time.  All the bands rip. Theres a bar at both shows. Come have a good time.


Thanks in advance,

-CA.


Second wave of Tour Photo's//Shows update


Yo

So here's a few more photo's from the second leg of our west coast run with Japanther and Self Defense Family. We had an amazing time. Some of us got to head down to the LA Art Book Fair and check it out...needless to say it was awesome. The day of our show at The Lyric in LA, we got to play a daytime show with the band DOSES at our friends Madison, Adam and Zeds house. Adam runs a VHS company called VIPER VIDEO and was cool enough to film our set at the house for an upcoming VHS tape he will be doing. Thanks to all the homies for letting us play their house and making it happen. 


The shows tab of our website has been updated, so check that out to the left. 

Our Record Release shows for Psychic Mess will be two shows in SF in a row...the first being for Noise Pop w/ No Age, The Hindu Pirates and Dune Rats on 2/28 at The Bottom Of The Hill. The second will be a joint Record Release with our friends The Vibrating Antennas celebrating the release of their LP "The L'ength" out on BROKE HATRE. Buffalo Tooth and Culture Abuse will also be playing that show...the show is 3/1 at The Hemlock Tavern. Flyers posted soon.

All info for our SXSW show's will be posted in the next month so if you're out in Austin, watch out cause were coming. 

Thanks,

-CA.

P.s New 7" is being recorded this month. 
































January West Coast Tour//Recording Photo Blog




Hey, 

So a few things have happened recently...first off, the fine people over at SPIN MAGAZINE were kind enough to premiere the second song off our new LP. The song is called "Public Transit" and can be listened to HERE.


Next up, just a little reminder that Pre-Orders for the record are still available. Not sure exactly how many package deal's are left, but theres not many and there's only 50, so check that out HERE.

We just finished the first leg of our tour with Self Defense Family and Silver Snakes. The show's were cool and everyone was nice. After a nice day at home we are starting back up this evening tonight at Thee Parkside in SF...we will also be meeting up with Japanther for the rest of the shows. 

Here's some pictures from the first leg of the tour and from recording last August in Montreal, QB. 

Hope to see you at a show,

-CA.

Ps. I dont know if I made an official post on here about it, so I figured I'd mention we have added a new guitar player to the family. His name is Ian Bruce Simpson. You might know him from playing guitar in No Sir and Not To Reason Why....so if you see him at a show, say whats up cause he rips. Also S/O to our homie Casey Colby from THE DOWN HOUSE. If you arent planning on coming to our gig tonight, go check out his band at Gilman tonight. I had the pleasure of previewing their new 7'' recordings and its safe to say that bands future is good.
