This Or The Apocalypse Issues New Album Update

This or the Apocalypse has checked in with the following update about the band's upcoming new album and tour plans:

"To answer the lack of news on the new record: Rather than spending time trying to craft an update that skirts around the questions all clever, I'll put it this way: When we release an album, we tour it relentlessly.

"For this next record, we wanted to wait until we could dedicate a year of our life, uninterrupted, into touring these songs and shouting down stupid mosh fights. It'd be awesome to release songs and show everyone, but it's just not good for the release.

"Rick had a pretty heavy surgery, Grant had to leave the band for health reasons, Jack/Rod/Matt wanted to save up and buy new rigs of gear, and years of touring on our own check had added up to the point where being home a few months actually seemed like the healthiest and best decision for the band and our families.

"We're not just dudes that crash on couches and ask kids to send us 5 bucks on paypal. We haven't been completely inactive, either. Our recent Canadian headliner tour with TWWK and BOAK was an incredible time, despite our van tanking out for 5 days, we even made it to the front page of reddit.com finding rides from show to show.

"The waiting is done and we're finally lining up our home for the next record. This year is going to be huge for us: Expect some amazing art from our best friend Sol Amstutz, new songs with material that reach as far back as to satisfy fans of our 2005 self-released albums, music videos, funny rants from Rick, all of that. TOTA fans, we miss you guys. See you soon."
