We're adding a few more shows to October - We're playing Pop Montreal on October 7th with BIONIC, and there might be a show added on the 6th either in Montreal or Ottawa, and we're playing The Halifax Pop Explosion on October 20th and 21st, a licensed festival showcase on the 20th, and an all ages show with Risky Business on the 21st. Venues TBA. The Montreal show is at Petit Campus. Probably we'll go check out VITALIC later that night.
Ok, a few things to note. This is a special Youtube-links-only special update
1) Canadian's BORN DEAD ICONS have been added to the Sunday night show on October 29th. 2) If you are planning to come to the Sunday show, wear a costume, since we'll be giving prizes (test presses) out for the two best costumes. 3) We aren't playing in Las Vegas tonight unfortunately. 4) We will most likely be in Europe (including hopefully Barcelona) and the UK at the end of December 5) We might next be playing Sept 13th at an undisclosed venue as part of the Toronto International Film Festival, stay tuned for more info if it looks like it's going to happen. 6) Anyone who bothered looking for Mars in the last two days would have been sorely disappointed, since it was all a hoax. 7) We should have full info for the Nov 2-7 mini east coast tour shortly. Cities will include New York, Philly, Pittsburgh, Chicago and that's it. 8) The Euro version of Dangerous Fumes will be out in a few weeks. The Gasos Peligrosos 7" will be out a bit after that. Looking For Gold II is sold out. 9) Make sure to concentrate very hard on the two images below this post. 10) Pink Eye's new band will be playing at the El Mo on Friday at around 8pm. 11) We will be playing the entire Planets Cycle by Gustav Holst on the Friday of the record release show. 12) The Korean War was never officially ended, making it the longest war of all time, and the US and A still has over 40,000 troops stationed there. 13) We're adding a matinee to the release weekend, it will be on the Sunday at a venue TBA. It's gonna feature THE REGULATIONS, SAILBOATS ARE WHITE, ATTACK IN BLACK, NINJA HIGHSCHOOL and a few more depending on what happens to the Sunday after party, which will probably be cancelled. 14) Anyone who plays road hockey should bring sticks to the fest. 15) The second Mix Tape is all done and ready to go. Deranged should have them made in a few weeks/months. Less BS this time, and also pro-mixing this time. Features UNRELEASED songs from Brutal Knights, Social Circkle, Cold World, Sex Vid, Urban Blight and Look Back and Laugh. Cassette only release! 16) There's a bit of confusion regarding some Fucked Up records coming out soon - the Dolly Mixture/Shop Assistants cover 7"'s will ONLY be available at the release shows. The Year of the Dog 12" will be a WIDE release and you'll have an easy time acquring one if you buy records on a regular basis. IF you were a member of The Dolly Mixture OR The Shop Assistants, please get in touch for you free copies. ALSO IF you can get me a copy of the Dolly Mixture documentary movie entitled DOLLY MIXTURES that just came out in England get in touch for your payola. 16) Our arch-enemies CAREER SUICIDE are playing a record release show on Sept 8th before they go to the island of Japan. It's at the White Orchid so you better make other plans.
Ok, TRIUMPH OF LIFE and DANGEROUS FUMES are out today. You can get them. We might be playing in LAS VEGAS next TUESDAY, so if you live there you should come. Its at the DOUBLEDOWN.
For people who've pre-ordered concert tickets for the release shows: -you will be given your tickets when you arrive in toronto -you can buy as many as you like -bring ID so we can get your name off the purchase list when you get here -it'll take us a few days to email everyone back who's emailed for reservations.
Ok we finally we have the full info to annouce regarding the record release. First a few pointers:
*These are the record release shows for HIDDEN WORLD, our first full-length. *This is also the release show for YEAR OF THE DOG our first in a series of "Year" 12"'s *It is also the release for the Dolly Mixture and Shop Assistants cover 7"'s You will ONLY be able to get these records at THESE SHOWS. *There will be FREE after parties every night. These will be CRAZY. Please BEHAVE, though. *We will most likely add a THURSDAY Oct 26th show, and a SUNDAY MATINEE on the 29th, but we didn't have enough info on those to include them in this annoucement at press time
*These shows will be limited capacity, and if you are interested in coming, you NEED to buy advance tickets. We're going to reserve some tickets for door purchase for the locals, but unless you are a lunatic, you should reserve/purchase your tickets in advance.

There will be a 4.5% service fee that paypal charges us for every transaction on there, so that number will be added to whatever your total is.
