Day 3: Sunday 7/17/2016
The best part of being Cuban/Irish is that I'm tan year round but still shrivel up like bacon when exposed to too much sunlight. I had the nastiest sunburn ever which even days later had my forehead covered in acne and the skin on my nose flaking off. And after looking at myself in the mirror, the first two words that came to mind were, “worth it.” As somebody too perpetually broke to wear sunscreen and already shelling out ungodly amounts of money just to stay fed and hydrated, a sunburn was a rather small price to pay to continue to have a really great time.
Since my arctic camo shorts were completely drenched in beer, I decided that now was the time to break out an even more egregious pair of camo shorts. Neon green and black are a pattern that can't blend into any environment which is why I bought them in the first place. Just the most outrageous thing I could possibly own... and now I had an excuse!
I missed the first three acts since I got there late. I kept waking up later each morning due to the sheer quantity of alcohol I was drinking as my car needed engine repairs and that meant that I wasn't driving. That fact that the gates opened earlier with each passing day didn't help either since Gemini Syndrome started playing a full half hour earlier than Through Fire did on Friday. So I ultimately have no opinions on Gemini Syndrome, Upon a Burning Body or We Came As Romans and I'm not going to fabricate a story just for the sake of comprehensiveness. There are some videos on Youtube and I watched them but I still lack anything resembling an opinion since bootlegs can never compare to the real thing. More...

Epitaph label mates Architects and letlive. will embark on a co-headlining U.S. tour this Spring. They will be joined by Glass Cloud and I The Mighty as support. Sam Carter of Architects states:
"We can't wait to get out with our boys in letlive. we're all big fans of the band as musicians and people! Looking forward to getting back out to America and playing news song from lost forever lost together! Bring your stage diving shoes lets party!"
Jason Aalon Butler of letlive. also shares: "We've been a band for nearly a decade and this is our 2nd proper United States headliner. That being the case, it is a rather significant and pivotal endeavor at once. Now that you know that, you can safely assume how important this tour is to us as well as who we share it with. I've noticed many comments polluting our considerably juvenile cyber spaces inquiring things like 'why would this band tour with this band?' and some other unwarranted entitled opinion on what bands should or should not do with THEIR art. I can sincerely say to you that letlive. plays music for people that want to listen to music with no real concern for specified or claimed genre, while playing that music alongside others that will do the same. In this case, those people go by the monikers of Architects, Glass Cloud, and I the mighty. Call it what you will, we'll keep calling it art. Holler."
Architects will release new album "Lost Forever, Lost Together" on March 11th via Epitaph, recorded in Sweden at Studio Fredman with producers Fredrik Nordström and Henrik Udd. Catch the band's live: More...

Check out the stream below. The band is also out on the Warped Tour, with a complete list of dates available after the jump.
Letlive. will release new album "The Blackest Beautiful" on July 9th via Epitaph Records and has now dropped new music video “Banshee (Ghost Fame).” Check it out below.
“This song explores the tragic humor in entertainment as an industry as opposed to an art,” explains vocalist Jason Aalon Butler. “Sonically this track was a pretty suitable representation of the record's sonic spectrum. We also employed some elements of groove that we have always been fans of.”
“The mindset was certainly a holistic one when regarding this record,” Butler adds. “The vibe developed on its own as we wrote it. While we certainly indulged particular tastes, stylistically, as individuals, we made sure that the product culminated as something we could all enjoy. Essentially we all got to explore elements we had always wanted to and somehow found a way to marry them tastefully on one album.” More...
