Bandcamp Tour Sale

In an attempt to keep the needle closer to F than E on the road, all releases on my Bandcamp page are now available for half off. Just enter the code unleaded when purchasing. Check said page to see all of the titles available. At half price, you can get more than one for the price of a gallon. Thanks for the support.

Local Autonomy Interview and Shows This Week

I recently sat down with James Davis of the blog Local Autonomy and he fired some questions my way. How do I feel about Columbus, noise, and historical context? To take a quote entirely out of context, "dissatisfaction is a deeply embedded character trait." What? You'll have to read the full interview to find out. Please do so here.

I also have a couple of performances this week for those of you in Central and Northeast Ohio. Both will be pretty unique.
