There is going to be a benefit show in Philadelphia tomorrow to help The Saddest Landscape after their accident that totaled their van. Check out the event page below and attend if you live anywhere near there!
Hi all, since there have been so many questions about this, wanted to get one final update out there.
The relatively short version of this all is:
We were involved in a serious van accident on the first day of our East Coast/Mid-Western US tour this week.
En route to the show in Pittsburgh, PA, the back tire of our van came off, causing us to lose control of our van on the highway and crash, totaling the van and leaving us stranded in a nearby town. Thankfully, no one was seriously hurt. However, a few members of the band sustained injuries that, combined with our current financial situation, are forcing us to cancel the remainder of this tour.
In lieu of the cancellation, we’ve scheduled a few benefit shows on our way back home this week.
-Wednesday, 12/10 in Baltimore, MD (details still TBD)
We’re incredibly bummed to have to cancel this. We’d like to thank everyone for all of the words of encouragement and well wishes you’ve sent us the past few days, along with all of the promoters on this tour for being so understanding of their current situation and to everyone who was planning on coming out to the originally scheduled shows. Hopefully we’ll see some of you in Philly and (hopefully) Baltimore.
that was fast all tour records are now sold out, we can’t thank you enough. hopefully we can get out of breezewood PA and on the road and the rest will be available at those shows.
time to go back to getting weird on snapchat. while we watch raw deal in a best western, eating sheetz, reading rock bios, wishing their was a hot tub to soothe or hurting selves but instead its a snow storm.
added a handful of the exclusive tour records and shirts to our store to help as we are still trying to find a way to leave lovely Breezeway PA, anything helps, even just simple well wishes, thank you.
Can’t thank everyone enough for the well wishes you’ve been sending us.
We are a little banged up but OK and are extremely lucky to walk away from what happened last night. Our van is completely totaled and we’re stranded in PA right now while we try to figure out if we can do the rest of the tour.
We are not going to be able to make it to Grand Rapids, MI but please please still go and support that scene and the great bands playing.
Thanks again everyone for being so understanding about this.
The Saddest Landscape got into an accident after one of their tires exploded on the highway tonight. Their van is totaled but everyone is okay. They’re not sure if they’ll be able to continue their tour or how they’ll be getting home. Could use some support: http://tpshlf.co/1eYEd1U
So, The Saddest Landscape and My Fictions did not, as most bands do, release a split. They went and created a collaborative record: one song each plus a third song in the form of a 13-minute piece of magnificence by the name of ‘When You Are.’ But I’ll get to that later.
First up on this three-tracker is My Fictions’ own ‘You Never Stay’. A brilliant burst of hardcore noise that starts hard and maintains the intensity. My Fictions absolutely shred. It’s unrelenting, bordering on the grotesque – A living reminder that the raw and the furious are forever at the heart of hardcore.
With My Fictions having set the bar so high all the pressure is on The Saddest Landscape to keep to such a high standard. Or at least the pressure may have been on if they hadn’t hit the mark within the first second of ‘Loss Will Find Us’. Coming to life like a shot before twisting through varying degrees of desperation from the intensely chaotic to slow, breathless builds. At times it could be jarring. Truth be told, ‘Loss Will Find Us’ does legitimately appear to operate as two songs rather than the one it claims to be. That being the case though, I’d just consider it more bang for your buck. One song or two, The Saddest Landscape bring the big guns to this one.
Where have all the dangerous bands gone? Why do I have that yearning? Why have I asked that question to myself repeatedly this past week? The Birthday Party, G.G. Allin, The Jesus Lizard and my generation’s unappreciative equivalent - These Arms Are Snakes. I asked this question on Twitter the…
just a quick heads up we just restocked our store with a few items we thought were gone, including 1 copy of the bramble jam comp, 3 shirts (small) and an expanded version of the box set with a bonus hand engraved zippo by us, thanks for supporting us, this all helps us pay for tour costs.
