Hey gang! Just wanted to introduce you to our new site. Many thanks to Matt Arbogast at Leadtooth for designing and re-plumbing our Internet tubes so that it is cleaner and more functional. That’s how it works, right?
Sean and Ian Graham (from Cheap Girls) are about to hit the road for some shows in the East/Midwest. Sean will be playing AJJ songs new and old. He will be accepting new requests each night from a clipboard stationed at the merch table.
Also, we will be doing a full band show at the Marquee Theater for the Phoenix Am skate contest after party with Black Lips, Destruction Unit, and Freaks of Nature. Click here for tickets.
We’ve got some fun stuff in the pipeline for you. Unfortunately, I’m not at liberty to talk about it yet…
Okay, so we have some good news!
Our group of friends got into Against Me! around the same time AJJ started playing music. One Halloween we even did an entire set of Against Me! song. Needless to say, we are huge fans of their music. We are very excited and honored to be going on a tour with them in early September. As an added bonus, our good friends, Joyce Manor, are going to be on the the shows as well as The Wild for Santa Cruz and Reno!
Speaking of bands that we love, we will be appearing on a Mountain Goats tribute album. It is called Tallahassee Turns Ten and it is a compilation of a bunch of great bands doing covers of every song on that album. Thanks for putting this together, Blade.
Lastly, we are taking our full band out on a tour with the incredible Future of the Left. We are really excited to spend a couple of weeks getting to see them play every night!
See you in the pit!
So, we went into audioconfusion on Thursday and recorded three songs with our dear friend, jalipaz . First of which was a Mountain Goats cover to appear on the Tallahassee Turns Ten compilation. AJJ ringer, Deacon Bachelor, offered percussion assistance on this song and also learned and recorded another song with us in 15 minutes! That song will appear on a compilation of PHX and LA bands soon to be released on Kingdom Mammalia records.
Lastly, we recorded a song in support of the Occupy Movement with a little help from AJJ lifer, Dylan Cook, on mandolin. It can be found here and in the spirit of the movement and the season you can download it for free. Feel free to share it. Stay warm and spend time with your loved ones!
