CYNICS 7" OUT TODAY!!!
Fuck yeah everybody! The day is upon us! Our brand new Cynics 7" comes out today, and we’re streaming the single “Filthy Habits” on our myspace page as we speak (type/read) so go and check that shit out.
OR! Just come out to a Dropkick Murphys/Flatliners show this month in Canada and buy it on yellow vinyl. Hell yeah!
We’re very excited to have this thing out for you guys to (hopefully) enjoy. Special thanks to Fat Mike and Chad Williams at Fat Wreck for putting this together with us, Richard Minino (aka Horsebites) for putting together some incredible artwork for this, and of course the illustrious Steve Rizun for recording our songs and making sure they actually sound good. Our hats go off to you gentlemen.
If you’re wondering what’s happening with our new album, we managed to buy ourselves some time before turning the thing in, so we’re going to take full advantage and record some more songs before the end of the year to add to the mix. With no solid release date known yet, I can say that it will be out sometime in early 2010. I hope that vague-ish news gets you stoked!
MYSPACE.COM is currently premiering the new full length from DEAD TO ME titled AFRICAN ELEPHANTS out on November 10th. Click here to hear it and here to pre-order your very own copy! Since we love all this DTM activity, we decided to give away a free MP3 to coincide with the album premier. We are pleased to present âA Day Without A Warâ. Click here to get it now!
A few words from Chicken on *DTM*âs recent activities:
Dead To Me has been on tour for the last couple weeks, having a blast playing and partying all over the country. We played THE FEST 8 in Gainesville on Halloween and it was probably the funnest show we’ve ever played. I was playing bass while crowd surfing, Ian was getting bear hugs while trying to play drums and Nathan had to play while being outsung by sweaty girls that kept hogging his microphone. We’re super excited to be playing the songs off our new record “African Elephants” and we cant wait for the record release show in San Francisco with Grant Hart from the mighty Husker Du. Thanks to all the kids who have been coming out to sing along and jump around. Up the punx!
Check out DTM in INKED Magazine.

Check out this brand new review!
Alternative Press reviewed this fine EP, click here to read it!
The Lawrence Arms, celebrated their 10 year anniversary with a hometown show at the Metro in Chicago this past Saturday. The sold out event came with limited edition posters, vinyl and a film crew. Check out what Brendan had to say by clicking here. SPIN is currently debuting a brand new MP3 from TLA which you can only hear right here! The song is titled âDEMONSâ and will only be available to those who purchase the EP digitally. Brendan Kelly of TLA has written a very detailed blog about the release which you find in its entirety here but weâve included a wee part of it below. Enjoy!
Okay, so usually I like Bad Sandwich to be a bit of a respite from punk rockâ¦a place to come read about dick jokes and pussy farts and just kind of escape the mindless claptrap surrounding Taking Back Sunday, Dan Yemin and Justin Sane and Davy Havok and Tom Delonge and all that. Right? Sure. Itâs never been about the music here, folks. Itâs always been about the felching. Thatâs our motto, at least.
SO, today is where I break form completely. Iâm in a band. Some of you probably know all about this. Weâre called the Lawrence Arms, and while weâre not as popular as, say, Eric Clapton, weâre a lot more popular than, say, your band (unless youâre in the Alkaline Trio or Against Me! [and even then youâre still mondo gay]), AND weâre coming out with a record called Buttsweat and Tears on Fat Wreck Chords next week. In the spirit of promoting said release, SPIN.com is putting a free download of one of the songs on the internet. The song is called Demons and I think itâs pretty cool.
We made this the focus track because itâs the bonus song thatâs not on the vinyl version and only available on itunes and we figured that we shouldnât penalize the people who were cool enough to buy the 7â by giving them one less song. Everyone should be able to have the five songs if they want em, right? Right. So yeah. We decided to pass out the bonus track for free because weâre cooler than all other bands. Thatâs right, other bands, weâre talking about you. Nice haricuts. Sweet matching outfits. Nice sustainable careers. Blehâ¦
