On tonight's episode of The Gunz Show, A Loss for Words frontman Matty Arsenault announced that the band just finished recording a 9-song acoustic album, featuring four songs off their recent full length, No Sanctuary, plus one older song and four covers. The album will be exclusively sold on Warped Tour this summer
How's this for a way to kick off your weekend? To make your Friday go by a little faster, we've got a full stream of the Glamour Kills Tour Split featuring The Wonder Years, Polar Bear Club, Transit, The Story So Far, A Loss for Words and Into It. Over It. The concept of the split is that each band on the tour covered another band on the tour. So head to the replies to stream each of the six songs on the split, and read a little ditty from each of the bands talking about why they covered the songs they covered and why they're stoked for the GK Tour. Dates can be seen in the replies and the tour starts today.
Tickets for the Glamour Kills tour featuring The Wonder Years, Polar Bear Club, Transit, The Story So Far, A Loss For Words (3/29-4/20) and Into It. Over It. (3/9-3/28) will go on sale at 3 pm. The direct link to the ticket purchase is here. Options to include the tour-only 12" (limited to 1,000) will be available, and you have to register an account before you buy tickets, so hurry up and do it! The artwork and tracklisting for the 12" can be seen in the replies.
We didn't have any staff reviews to post today, but Drew and I did post a couple of sneak peeks at some upcoming albums. Check out my preview for A Loss for Words' No Sanctuary and Drew's preview of This Is Hell's Black Mass. Are you anticipating either of these records?
A Loss For Words' van died in California. As a result, they have been forced to cancel their upcoming off-shows with Vanna. The band needs a new van for the upcoming tours (and they need to get home from the west coast), so please consider helping them out by donating to their PayPal via firstname.lastname@example.org or by picking up some merch.
