Stoked to see Frank Turner's coming back to Canada so soon! Wasn't expecting it to be with Joel either, but that's awesome. I also recommend checking out the new Cancer Bats single if you haven't yet.

Otherwise, I don't know about the rest of the country, but Manitoba had the best first week of January weather ever.

Lifestory:Monologue is amazing, everyone who hasn't yet should check them out. Drag Your White Fur Make it Grey is an incredible record, one of 2011's best imo.

New Cancer Bats song reminds me a lot of Hail Destroyer, i'm loving it.

And agreed with Deborah first week of January was absolutely beautiful here as well, it feels like its already spring time.

I do hope it is only an occasional thing. Although I prefer Make Your Mark to Holy Shit, Stu is a much better vocalist.

I agree about Stu and I'm almost certain he's not going anywhere. It's just cool to see they get along enough to be able to do stuff like this.
