Back in 2016, I went on 3-month Arms and Sleepers tour which started in Central America and ended in Belarus. I remember flying from Guatemala City to Amsterdam, arriving there in the morning of the Brussels airport bombings, and then driving overnight from Amsterdam to Paris after the show in order to avoid long cues at security checkpoints. On that overnight drive with Sun Glitters and Rome In Reverse, I remember feeling utterly exhausted, far away from home, and uneasy. I just wanted to be in the comforts of home. During that long drive, I listened to AAMAR's album ‘Drips’, and one song in particular, appropriately titled ‘Home’, really hit a nerve. I’ve listened to this song many, many times since then, as it’s become kind of a coping anthem while on tour for long stretches of time. Last Friday, the record label I’m involved with, Future Archive Recordings, officially released this album. You should check it out, esp. the first track ‘Home’. There’s something magical about it, and it's worth a listen. http://futurearchiverecordings.com/release-aamar-drips _____________________
Playing in Paris tonight at Petit Bain, minus some equipment thanks to Norwegian's failure to put a suitcase on a plane (not the first time they have failed with this fairly standard airline task). Will do my best to entertain anyway! AAS on at around 01:00, this will be a late one. More info here --> Noble Silence Paris: Blockhead & Friends ________

tour is over. I've been doing this for 12 years and it doesn't get easier being on the road for 2 months straight. the state of exhaustion while on tour is hard to put into words. but we do it cause that's what we do. there were many wonderful shows on this run, and of course a few shows that I'll throw straight into my internal trash can. if you came out to one of the tour dates, thank you. if you helped organize and promote a show, thank you. if you are Achillea Music, thank you. if you are The Real Blockhead and Yppah, thank you. that's a wrap for 2018, I'm sure I'll be back at it in 2019 cause that's what we do. thanks for supporting what we do.
LAST DAY FOR THIS: https://wearearmsandsleepers.bandcamp.com/merch/fall-2018-n-american-tour-special ______________________
