LOST CAUSE (dec. 1st, 2013)
New LP ‘Waterboarding’ finished recording
You realize the shit we went through?
So we’re still in a haze and wondering what the hell we’re doing. We did however finish recording a full-length record in Squamish, BC to be out sometime in 2014 on 12″ vinyl. I think we all think it’s some of our best stuff! It’s dark with the weasel leads as per usual. With the band scattered across North America we don’t see any dates in the future for this band. It may be because this band is a curse or just a headache. It could’ve been you but it’s probably us.
Sorry to anyone that wanted to see us at the Fest 12 in Florida, we had to bail because of border and legal issues and let Sarah and No Idea know 6 weeks in advance. To people who set up shows for us in the south without confirming and we didn’t show up, we’re sorry. But, you need to confirm with any band that they’re coming before you set stuff up. Again, thanks for the hookup, no thanks for the flack.
We’ve been receiving some hate mail about not getting a record or tape or something because you donated to our ‘crash fund.’ To be clear, UNFUN the band, never said they would send anything out. We also didn’t start the fundraisers. Thanks to everyone who helped and donated, but, UNFUN the band, never promised any merchandise to anyone. Some labels that put out some records by us might’ve and some people who set up the fundraising stuff might’ve but it has nothing to do with us. I’m sorry you were expecting a tape or 7″ or anything, but figure out where you saw that stuff and try to get ahold of them directly.
We’re basically dead.
NO SNOW NO SHOW (aug 27, 2013)
Shows on the west coast confirmed
New record to be recorded in Squamish, BC
Looks like starting September 11th we will be starting to record a new full-length in Squamish, BC and playing some shows on the west coast. Super stoked about hanging again and we’re flying not driving most of the time, so that’s a bonus, if ya know what I mean. Shows listed below are for real.
September 14th – Oakland, CA @ Eli’s w/ oog nasty
Septmeber 15th – Seattle, WA @ The Victory w/ Murmurs and Siren Songs
Septmeber 16th – Vancouver, BC @ Alf Haus w/ Murmurs & Siren Songs
Look out for Siren Songs and Murmurs killing it on their west coast tour, now! Skin Colour is also doing some west coast shows so get hyped.
So, I think many of you have heard that we were in a fatal car wreck a month ago near Gary, IN. We lost our van and have bills piled high. If you haven’t donated and would like to, you can go to http://unfundraiser.blogspot.com to help us out.
With that out of the way, THANK YOU SO MUCH to everyone else who has donated and helped us! It was way more than we could have expected and your love and support through this traumatic experience cannot go unheard. We’d also like to thank our families and friends for standing by us through such hard times and it was up in the air if we’d ever even hit the road again. I know most of us are feeling overwhelmed and fucked up still because that was some crazy fucking shit.
We are however going to playing the Fest 12 in Gainesville, FL this year. Not sure if we’re going to be doing a little east coast stint for this, or possibly some west coast shows and then fly down there or just flying down for the shows. Still up in the air.
Plans on going into The Hive (Burnaby, BC) at some point in the next couple months to record a full-length 14 song LP are now in the works and we are super excited about it!
‘Shores of Lake Erie’ 12″ep is scheduled now to be out in September.
Again, thanks for everything! We’ll hopefully see you all soon!

“Shores of Lake Erie” 12inch EP to be released late May on Dead Broke Rekerds
Coldsores 2013 Spring USA/CAN Tour
so, this is the way to get a ahold of us when you wanna get ahold of us or just see what the hell we’re doing as of late. we have a new one sided 12″ ep coming out on dead broke rekerds in the late spring that will follow with a usa tour with select canadian dates. clean kids will be handling the cassette version of this ep. we’re not sure if we will be supporting another band on our next trek or hitting the road by ourselves.
we have another 12 songs ready to go for the northwest solitude full-length which we will be hopefully recording at the end of march in long island.
heres the art/tracklisting for our new record and tentative may tour dates.
art done by the talented legs of east vancouver, bc!
