Interested to hear the new Lifestory: Monologue record.

brandon_260 10/09/11 09:38 AM

Same here, they've really improved since I first saw them in 2008.

brent_ster 10/09/11 10:41 AM

Pre-orders for Lifestory:Monologue are now up as well.


brandon_260 10/09/11 11:19 AM

Contemplating ordering it, but they are playing Peterborough 4 days before the release. Might just pick it up there and save the shipping.

If we're talking about Canadian music (or any music, really) there needs to be a mention of Bruce Peninsula. Their new album came out on the last week and it un-fucking-believable!

brandon_260 10/09/11 10:12 PM

Come talk about Lifestory!! http://absolutepunk.net/showthread.php?t=2470732

Thanks! I'll try and include them in the future. I definitely lean towards the punk side so sometimes I miss out on other types of bands.
