PLEASE READ!

Hi, Alex here, I’m afraid I have some bad news. Unfortunately we have to cancel the rest of our tour dates because of our trailer situation. We’ve been putting off getting a new trailer and it finally caught up with us, our trailer is on it’s last leg and we hope it gets us home in one piece. Most of you that know us know that we are not the type of band to cancel shows, we’ve been through this before, we’ve blown a transmission, we’ve been broke and dug deep into our own pockets to fix the problems just to get back on the road. Right now, it’s not about fixing it, we are concerned about our safety and our equipment. We feel absolutely horrible about all of this but we will be back in Seattle, Portland, LaCrosse, Cleveland, and Chicago this July so please, please don’t be mad at us, we love you all so much and please know we had to do this mainly for our safety. Thank you for reading and understanding,

Love,

Alex, Matty H, Preston, Rick, and Matty F

Goodbye California, Hello Washington!!

Hii! so I’m pretty bummed we are leaving California because I’m going to miss the near perfect weather I’ve been soaking in for the past few days but, I’m leaving with some good memories. Lately I’ve been doing a lot of thinking and it absolutely blows my mind to think that I’ve toured the entire country with my band, when I first started this I always dreamt about touring, owning a 15 passenger van, playing big music festivals, seeing the west coast and meeting new people. It’s been two years and those dreams have come true, it hasn’t been easy but seriously….it’s all worth it. I can’t help but to think that it’s all because of you, it’s all because YOU support what we do….pretty crazy huh? We are five best friends out of New Jersey living our dream, just goes to show that dreams do come true. I’ve always wanted to visit San Diego, I heard about the perfect weather, the amazing food, the amazing beaches and last night was amazing. It was my first time to the Pacific and as I stared into the open waters I realized, there’s no place else I’d rather be, it was peaceful, the air was cold but so soothing. Today we are leaving California for Washington and I’m stoked, I love Washington, last time we were there we met so many cool people, I hope to see a lot of them this weekend. We come home April 25th and I can’t wait, I admit, I miss my family badly…I’m very close with them so it gets hard when I don’t see them for months at a time. We are going to spend the month of May with our families and of course, we are going to be recording some fresh new music, we already picked out a new song were going to record soon and all I can say is it sounds bananas, it’s going to blow your mind!! How stoked are you for our music video tomorrow, I’m so pumped, we’ve already seen it and love it, we can’t wait to share it with the world! It comes out tomorrow on PopStar magazine’s website, www.popstaronline.com!!!

Thanks for reading,

Love,

Alex
