Rule Britania

"Hi, do you have North American to British power converters?"

"Yes we do. Are you American?"

"No," I replied. "Im from Canada. I'll take one of those please."

"Where are you from?"

"Toronto," I said to the shopkeeper.

"Is that in America? That will be 3 pound 50."

"No, it's in Canada."

"Canada is in North America?" he asked as he handed me back my change.

"Yes. Yes it is."

Today we are in Oxford. Just down the road from one of England's finest academic institutions. So, I was somewhat surprised with peoples confusion about the location of the country I live in. More confusing were the two young kids around the corner that were threatening our lighting guy, and up the road Dallas was getting yelled at by an old drunk weirdo. It seems like a lovely city. I can only imagine what will happen when the bars let out tonight when the show is finished.

We are falling into things right away. It's been a reunion with Anti Flag and Ghost of a Thousand. We have known both those bands for a while now, and the Four Years Strong dudes seem really nice and really bearded.

Tomorrow in Nottingham we are gonna be doing a signing so come say hello,
@ Non Stop (14 St James St)

back to the matter at hand

Hello friends, fans and downloaders of illegal music,

We are gearing up to get back on tour so I thought it was time to resurrect the blog. It was pronounced dead on a hot summer day shortly before the end of this summers Warped Tour. Our spirits were dwindling and I was having a hard time not writing anything except........."woke up today, played at noon, walked around aimlessly for hours, Escape the Fate still suck." But, tonight after a couple beers and a few hours playing a Simpson's video game I know now the blog must come back.

Since you last heard from us we played some festivals in England, did some university's shows close to home and we even managed to shoot a video for our next single Born and Raised. Things may have been quiet but we certainly have been busy. We even wrote some new songs that are gonna be released as EP in the new year. The EP will be called "Dogs Blood" and more than likely we will just do a vinyl release and put in on Itunes (so go to grandmas house and take her record player). Can't wait to get to the UK in a couple days we have missed you cheeky blighters!

Happy Birthday George you old bastard!
