I'm about to leave on tour with my band, This Flood Covers the Earth, and our friends, Lanterns. We have a split record that just came out on History Major Records, and were hoping to play some shows this summer in support of it around the country.
Flood plays epic, heavy post-hardcore, some influences: Botch, Isis, Drive Like Jehu, Unwound, Mission of Burma, Funeral Diner. Lanterns plays spacey, aggressive indie rock, some influences: Pavement, the Jesus and Mary Chain, Meneguar, Cap'n Jazz, My Bloody Valentine, Heroin. Both bands have Myspaces with some sounds on them, so you can hear for yourself, Flood's is here, Lanterns' is here.
We could really use some help on some of these dates, and honestly, we'll play pretty much anywhere, as long as it's all ages (or [grudgingly] 18+). This includes a DIY space, a club, a bar, your living room one night, your garage in the afternoon, your basement at four in the morning... well, you get the idea. We don't need guarantees or to be fed or to be given places to stay, we just need places to play, and we really will take anything and will just be stoked to each play for twenty minutes and make some new friends with the dozen or so people that trickle in and pay attention to us for two-thirds of an hour total.
