From The BandHello friends. The internet is abuzz with rumors we are told. Thank you for your concern. Algernon Cadwallader has officially been laid to rest. We were 7 years old. That’s 49 in dog years. A message from one of your fearless leaders…
Your friend Tank wants to say something to the people! I’ve had an amazing past 5 years touring and writing music with my best friends Peter and Joe. So heres the news: I’m having a kid and got a nursing job! I’m stoked about a little Tank running around with drum sticks. Unfortunately I’m unable to tour anymore.
Thanks so much to all the people who have let me crash at their houses, use their hot water and their Dr. Bronners. I love every one of you and I can’t thank you enough! Without being in this band I wouldn’t have gotten to see and enjoy all the amazing places around the world we had the chance to play.
If you see me around say hi and give me a hug. Thanks for making the past 5 years incredible.
I love you,
From the author of this blog…
It has been a pleasure to narrate our story to you for the past 2 and a half years. The world spins pretty damn fast when you’re having a good time. Looking back on these old posts I am glad I wrote it all (not even close) down. Thankfully there was an audience otherwise I doubt I would have taken the time.
I feel obligated to announce that our friends and listeners have been each bit as (way more) important to us as (than) we have been to them. The things we did, people we met, and places we saw during Algernon Cadwallader have changed my life forever. Thank you so much.
Best wishes to my friend Tank! A true tour dog. Looking forward to meeting your puppy.
As you can imagine Joe and I will be at you soon with new music. Maybe we already are. Do your research. That’s the funnest part of this game.
You know it!

i was supposed to see them at gnar fest in chicago, but didn't because my lame friends had no clue who any of the bands where. add another band that I never got to see live to the list. this is truly not cool.
any video of their last show? if they have had one yet?
