The acoustic take of ‘Sculptors And Vandals’ was put to tape for an limited run of pre-orders, but they’ve all now but sold out. That’s what we call a super exclusive, is what that is. Greg Barnett of the band explains:

“When Epitaph first approached us they asked for a couple acoustic demos that we were working on. Initially we thought we were doomed from the start because… Well we’re not an acoustic band. Nervously, Tom and I recorded a couple new songs we were working on and thankfully they liked them and signed us. We continued to demo new songs acoustically and ended up with these jawns.

Basically, my brother preordered the newest The Mountain Goats record “All Eternals Deck” and while driving back to Lake Ariel one afternoon he told me how much we fucked up by not including acoustic demo tapes with our preorders like The Mountain Goats had done. Suddenly the lightbulb popped up above my head and I thought, holy shit we can steal their idea and release a tape with our acoustic demos too! So their ”

Nothing much matters in August other than Reading & Leeds Festivals, right? This year we really were spoilt for choice as Blink-182, You Me At Six, A Day To Remember, Sleeping With Sirens and so many more GREAT rock bands brought the festival back to its roots. Plus there was the small matter of a couple of VERY special warm-up shows from Sleeping With Sirens and Gerard Way...
