What exactly is the tattoo 7'? I've been hearing about it, but I wasn't sure what it was.
A way to say thank you to everyone with a TSL tattoo- artwork will feature them- 7” is just for those people (not that we don’t appreciate everyone’s support tattoo or not) - just want to do something for them to show our thnx and reward em for doing something so cool. Working on a way to do something for everyone else with it as well but for now you send a photo with a tattoo and an address, you get the 7” for free.
so nevin over at IFB was nice enough to send us the rest of the copies of the her breath on glass “we aimed straight down” LP, it has been a long time since we have had any, and this will most likely be the last, and we only have a small handful,
the record comes on split/red black vinyl, with really nice multi colored screen printed covers, a 13 piece insert, most have a hbog patch as well.
as we are in need of money to pay for the upcoming tattoo record (again deadline to be included on the artwork for that is july 1st), they have been bundled together with a bunch of other things, sort of an old/new/old/old gift pack, so even if you have some of the stuff consider it a gift, and you can share records with friends, oh and it can be ordered here:
HI, Just wanted to say that seeing that you guys have serious day jobs yet still find the time to make the music you love has really inspired me tonight. I've been worrying about holding up my job and giving as much as I can to my band and it's great to see that it is possible to do both. So, thanks!
absolutely! and that’s cool to hear. it’s not easy and honestly i’m surprised we can make it work at all at this point but it’s kind of like anything in life where if you really enjoy something you’ll find a way to make it work somehow and figure out the right balance.
can't believe you guys have never been to canada. we're your backyard!
ha true. some of us have pretty serious day jobs so the ability to tour/travel is limited. i.e. i have 3 weeks off a year and if i don’t use some of that to go on vacation with my girlfriend she will murder me. So that leaves 1-2 weeks a year where we can actually go anywhere. But enough of my sob story- we’ll get there one day. we’d really like to.
Hey you guys, you know what would be the best ever? is if you guys would come to Thunder Bay, Ontario. that would seriously make my life if you did, your music mean so much to me. So in the near future when you're planning a Canadian or North America tour, stop by Tbay! it's awesome here! :D:D I'd really appreciate it :>
thanks man, we would like to. we have never been to Canada. One day!
In your song In Love With The Sound, in the line "We've got our old pride and we've got our honest sleep", are those references to the pianos become the teeth album and the touche amore song? Haha i always thought it was buzzy as
correct. i didn’t write the lyrics but know what they mean and share the same sentiments. the particular lyrics you mention are paying homage to those 2 and the newer bands of this style that do it for the right reasons. Most of the song’s lyrical content though is a middle finger to elitists that are more concerned with their own warped, self-dictated scene politics than the actual music itself.
just did an update to the store, we now have a handful of copies of the “cover your heart” repress (it came out killer, expanded artwork, a new remastering job that makes “the sixth golden ticket” sound better than it ever has), it is on cream vinyl, after this it is out of print. i also put together some new package deals as well, please support us if you can as we are in a little need of money to help offset the production costs of the free tattoo record we are pressing in a few weeks, thanks.
which reminds me the deadline to be included in that is july 1.
23 TSL Songs for $1 Still Going (For a Good Cause)
A huge amount of thanks to all of you who have been helping us towards our goal of raising $1,000 to help cover the medical bills of our friend Barrie and her mother. Thanks to you, we are getting closer and closer to this goal. It is very much appreciated.
A very good friend of our band named Barrie has recently fallen on some hard times - her mother has unexpectedly become ill and the family has medical bills that need to be covered: http://www.giveforward.com/tonimariecohn
Barrie is someone that has given endlessly to the punk & hardcore scene of the tri-state area- if you’ve gone to shows here over the years, chances are high that you know her or are already friends with her. She’s a wonderful person and we’d like to try and help her out during this difficult time that her and her family are going through.
We’ve put our early discography up on bandcamp- it’s $23 songs for a $1. Our goal is to raise $1,000 over the next few weeks. It might be a lofty goal, but we want to set the bar high. Every cent goes towards the Cohn family and helping them get through this difficult time.
