Hey guys, I used to play in a band with/am currently best friends with these guys. They just finished a new full length, and I swear to god, it’s the best thing I’ve heard in a long while. It won’t be officially out for a little bit, but I’m way too excited to wait, so here’s a track off it. Hope you enjoy it. Southern Ontario punk rock at its finest.
The Wars - Beat Noir
All these days are just the wars we fight, the little struggles to get to the nights when we grapple with the things we decide. Decisions made in efforts to survive. Survival imitating our young lives. Still we’re pushing the same old pieces around on a map in a harsh-lit room, waiting for someone to make the first move. Waiting for these fragile bodies that we’ve grown to trust to be broken, to betray us.
All these days are just the wars we fight, so keep your secrets locked up tight, don’t let them see how we strive for something more than our brief lives. In each other we will never die. So never stop feeling the pain. Wear your bruises and your scars like moral emblems in these wars. Survive. Every day that you’re alive is a source of pride when these wars are just the days going by.

Thanks for spreading the word, Vuk! I’m helping run this screening, so it would mean a lot if everyone came out. Thanks!
We’re playing with New Armour and Spore this upcoming Saturday at Nocturne, right at Queen and Bathurst. We’ve played with Spore in a basement and they’re fantastic. We’ve never played with New Armour, but they put out one of the best demos of the past few years. All great people.
COME CHECK IT. It’s a matinee, time TBA. Gotta tell Evan to solidify that shit.
I’m in this band and run the band blog. If you’re here in Toronto in the afternoon this upcoming Saturday, come check out the wonderful sounds of 3 awesome bands playing alongside one crummy one that I’m incidentally in.
New Armour rule heavily, Spore are wild (plz plz plz put out the demo), and even though I’ve never seen Goatface Killah, I’ve met the drummer through Bri a bunch of times and they’re awesome people. Just checked out their stuff on Bandcamp and it’s cool!
Show’s at 3:30pm at Nocturne, which iirc is a goth club right around where the Funhaus used to be… Yes, I know I’m dating myself. NO I never raved there…. Anyway, it’s right at Queen and Spadina, so come and check it out. If you can see things on facebook, the event is linked here:
