Sup ya’ll? Tom and I are married now. Married life is pretty cool. We just got done touring with Title Fight, Balance & Composure, and Cruel Hand, and that was hands down the best tour we’ve ever done in our lives. It’s honestly the best thing in the world when the bands you listen to all of the time are incredible, down to earth people. So, thanks to all of those bands for being wonderful individuals who also happen to be the most amazing musicians as well!
We are touring down to Fest with Prawn for 2 days! Here is the info! We hope to see you all there if you’re not at Fest already :)

We are playing at 8 seconds on Sunday November 3rd at the Knapsack show! I believe our set time is 5 pm and then the AMAZING HOP ALONG PLAYS RIGHT AFTER US! ahhh!
Thank you to everyone who came out and supported us on our recent tour. We seriously had the bar set low in terms of anyone checking us out, and you all exceeded our expectations! Thank you for your love and we hope to see you on our lil’ trip down to Gainesville!
Oh, hey! We are going on a magnificent little run with Allison Weiss! To make it an even sweeter deal, our best friend Chrissy is coming with us, and she’ll be doing hair wraps. WHAT?! A ROADIE THAT DOES HAIR WRAPS? Yes. So, get your hair done and come to these shows. Tom will have 200 hair wraps by the end.

So whenever we go on tour, I get into the (terrible) habit of checking twitter. Are kids having fun at our shows? Do they like us? Are they in love with our roadie? How freaking awesome was Owen on this tour? But, as the curious search goes, I find the not-so-into Slingshot tweets. And, honestly, I get it. Kids love the internet, they love being anonymous, or not. I honestly do not love every band, every song and every genre. It’s human nature! And, it’s totally fine. But, I find it so weird that people write either mean things about bands they don’t like, or in one case, constantly write about the band they DON’T LIKE. It’s just counter productive maybe? Do they want me to write back with happy faces, because I will! Are they really into our band, and want to advertise us subconsciously? I used to say I hated the Power Rangers when I was a tween, but I really liked them. I was called out by my sister who said “If you really hated the Power Rangers, why are you watching the movie?”
Point taken, sis. Point taken. I guess what I’m trying to say is, say what you want.Tweet what you want. But it’s just weird when you don’t like a band, you write about them on the internet for them to see. I guess it’s no different from hating on celebrities. Maybe they’re like me, searching the internet for positive things. But, truth be told, you won’t really find positivity on the internet.
Life lesson to Carly: Get off the internet, do what you love. If I don’t like everything everyone does, they don’t have to love what I do. But, DO consider that every mean thing that you write on the internet exists and that energy is put into the universe whether or not that person sees it. And, it is free advertising for that person, so thank you? Poor Amanda Bynes is going through something bigger than anyone could ever relate to, but that girl is getting more PR than she got when she filmed “She’s The Man.” Which I absolutely admit I loved.
