This will be endless fun. I’ll also be playing with VOW. Come out
On August 4th, 2013 we played IS SURVIVED BY in its entirety to support the Bridgetown DIY space (in La Puente, CA). Our friend Chris Avis came to film the show. This song is called DNA.

Anonymous asked: I've noticed that you design a lot of stuff for Touche Amore and I was wondering if you were behind the logo, if so, is it supposed to represent anything? To me it kind of looks like a road going into a vanishing point.
CORRECT! Yes, I was behind the logo. Originally designed for our last record “Parting the Sea…” it was meant to show the sun vanishing behind a horizon, the tunnel vision of being on the road, a point of convergence, forward momentum, as well as a physical divide. We decided it really represents the band and our ethic far and beyond just the underlying themes of that specific record, so…it lives on.
incredibly excited for this
