Well, the Summer Sickness Tour has ended. The last couple weeks saw shows in Florida and Texas through Albuquerque and ending with two solid shows in Flagstaff and Tucson. All the guys on that tour were great to hang with. We all got along very well. Much respect to Authority Zero and Versus the World. Great bands and super professional. The morning after Flagstaff, we ended up at some diner drinking 2 for 1 Bloody Marys and eating pancakes, trying to work off the hangover.

The turnouts were very good. Lots of people singing our songs back to us. We put on some awesome performances and I sweated like never before. It's been fun watching the new album get out there too. Lots of people already know the songs and it just feels comfortable playing them live.

On to the next one! We've got a few weeks off and then we head back to Florida for a couple shows with Less Than Jake and we'll be announcing a fall tour very soon. Looking forward to seeing our Hooligan community again this fall. We have the coolest and most caring listeners ever!
