Comments guitarist Josh James: "Going to Europe is like Christmas morning - you never know what's going to happen but you know it's going to be awesome and better than what you already have. It's refreshing to leave our own country and go to so many countries in Europe that really are dedicated to the music they love. Our good friends in Stick To Your Guns are coming over with us this Summer so make sure to show them a killer time, if you haven't heard STYG then get ready to be blown away, this will definitely be a memorable ET tour!

Evergreen Terrace has recently announced that the band will be playing a string of dates across Florida with several other Florida-based acts in tow. Florida is passed over by a lot of tours, so the band decided to play shows specifically for home state fans. Guitarist Josh James explains further:
"It's strange to think that even though we tour 9 months out of the year we rarely get to play Florida. This state has a great scene, amazing bands and mostly importantly it's our home. In early December we will head out for a weekend trip with our friends Casey Jones and Boys No Good to explore some of these scenes and to catch some great local bands. Later in the month we will be participating in Jack Rabbit's infamous 12 Days of Christmas event in Jacksonville. It's been almost a year since we've played our hometown. The show has an amazing lineup featuring Kids Like Us, His Name Was Iron, a rad band from Tallahassee called Livid and a new local Jacksonville band called Atlas. Remember, the best way to support your scene is by attending local shows and supporting not only touring bands but local ones as well. We look forward to seeing old and new faces at these shows and closing out 2011 in a memorable way."
The band's upcoming tour dates are as follows:
12/8 - Tallahassee, FL @ The Engine Room
12/9 - Tampa, FL @ Transitions
12/10 - Cocoa, FL @ The 321 Local
12/11 - Lake Worth, FL @ The Speak Easy

Evergreen Terrace has issued the following statement regarding a fight at the band's August 12th show in Cheswick:
"Because of the amount of attention that the ‘ET fight’ rumor has caused, we want to answer your questions and clear up what happened at our show on 8/12 in Cheswick, PA. We attempted to let these ridiculous comments pass and not to take part in the absurdity, but because the rumors continue-even if by only a small group of people - we think our fans deserve the truth. Craig and Jake, a crew member of the tour, (NOT Andrew) were sitting by a red car (not on it).
"A girl approached them and told them to get off her boyfriend's car. They told the girl they weren't on the car and to chill out. Craig asked where her boyfriend was. The boyfriend walked up and both parties began shit talking. The girl dumped a beer on Craig and Jake and threw the beer can at them. Craig stood up. He and the boyfriend lunged at each other. The boyfriend tackled Craig to the ground causing Craig to land on his back. The boyfriend hit Craig 3 times, and the girl jumped in swinging. Craig was on his back, his arms up to block. Jake and witnesses pulled the boyfriend and the girl off. There was a large crowd of people by this time. The boyfriend sustained his injuries from someone else (not in the band) after being pulled off Craig. When Craig got up, the girl ran toward him again. Craig shoved her away and walked off. She did not fall on the ground from this action. Later Craig went back to the area to get his phone. The boyfriend apologized to Craig, said the whole thing was stupid and that the girl was drunk.
