check it out.

The show in grand rapids went super well!
I had a lot of fun talking to new people, and hearing good feedback from people is always nice.
was sad though we missed Positive noise and the other bands i have been waiting to see them for a while :/

Then later that night we headed to Ryan's house for some fun and fun it was.
I had some pizza that had the best crust then i drank some really great beer and chated with some really cool cats about all kind of things.
oh and i also stood and stared in amazement to Ryan and Claire's little library they have, lots of great books i want to read

Then later that night much to my dismay i got to see Rorik and a bunch of other men get really excited and sing Bruce Springsteen... (not a big fan of the boss ha)
but much joy was brought when i heard he ran off and went to a hipster party down the road and danced his fanny off..then proceeded to pee on a girls car.

Overall it was a great night.
We leave for tour Thursday! got a great show that night in Kalamazoo

Oh and patches are now available!

Cool Stuff

Things are moving along well here at the Cloud Rat lab.
Our debut LP is getting mastered this week at Moresound Recording Studios in Syracuse, NY.
We have a couple patches and a back patch being printed up right now, and we are doing a four day weekend tour with our friends For The Sake Of Motion at the end of March.
Also, the artwork for the LP is coming along nicely. Almost done!!!
Lots of good things happening. Stoked.
The record will be put out by a few labels collectively. At this point, Otherwise Dead out of Muskegon MI, and Midwestern Decline out of Fort Wayne IN are on board. We are waiting on a couple others, and then we will see about getting this baby pressed!!
Come out to our upcoming shows, and participate in all of the other cool things happening within the Michigan DIY community!!!
