Little Heart Records is now taking pre-orders for a new 7" from Allister titled You Still Can't Do That on Vinyl. The band will also be headlining the labels' 5th Anniversary show in Louisville, KY on January 8th.
As one of Drive-Thru Records' initial signees, Allister had the distinction of being one of the first in a long line of bands that assisted in introducing the new era of the indie-label craze that SoCal pop-punk helped create (we all remember Epitaph's early success). Their debut, Dead Ends and Girlfriends, is a classically-themed pop-punk album that paid homage to both pioneers like Descendants and modern-day prophets like blink-182. Before their 2007 demise, Allister continued to grow as snot-nosed pop-punkers who loved to play loud & fast, sang about girls (and why they suck) and even alcoholism. If you were a fan, come share your memories with us, and if you're new to Allister, feel...
The Get Go (ex-Mest, Allister, and Showoff) entered the studio with producer Marc McClusky on Monday to start recording their debut full length. They will be hard at work on the album until November 6th.
Allister will be playing their last show ever at Chicago's The Metro on July 20th. Tickets will go on sale to the public on June 16th, but the Ticketmaster website will probably be activated Friday of this week or so for tickets to be purchased. Supporting the band will be Punchline, The Fold and One Black Tooth.
The Get Go (Ex Mest, Allister, Home Grown and Showoff) has set a webstore up on their myspace where you can be the first to get a "The Get Go" T-shirt or pick up a demo cd with an unreleased track on it. They will be playing this friday in Pittsburgh at Mr Smalls Theater.
Allister will be touring the mid-west / east coast with Self Against City on September 20th through October 9th. The Transit War will be joining the second half of the tour which begins on September 30th. All of the tour dates will be announced shortly.
Allister will be teaming up with Lucky Boys Confusion for some US dates in late June to july, and then heading out to the UK with The Aquabats from late July throughout August. Dates will be posted soon!
On March 18th Third String Productions will be having their two year anniversary show in Plano, TX. Allister, My American Heart and Umbrellas are scheduled to perform. Click the link provided for details.
