Excited for new Cancer Bats and Propagandhi in 2012. And definitely grab the free Shad download if you haven't yet.

Hahahahaha I can't believe A Sight For Sewn Eyes is being posted about here...I went to high school with the majority of the members.

Those dates mostly made the cut because of Lifestory: Monologue, but awesome nonetheless, haha. I don't listen to a lot of heavier stuff, but I've noticed them on tours with "bigger" bands like Dead and Divine, Counterparts and Structures too.

Ah ok, I think I read that somewhere. And now they're headlining, always like to see bands go from opening to headlining like that (:
