Just two weeks until our great big barn-burner weekend of Colorado shows celebrating the release of our long-awaited album “The Front Lines of Good Times Vol. I” and we are getting pumped!

Here’s a few reminders about some of the cool things going on around these shows:
- Our friends at Fire on the Mountain Buffalo Wings have named a sauce and dry rub of the month in our honor! The sauce of the month, dubbed “The Front Lines of Good Thai’mes” is a delicious Thai chili, Thai basil, blackberry sauce that is jammy, sweet, spicy and herby. It is soooooo good. The dry rub, named “MF Rub-Kus” is a savory, tasty and surprisingly hot Texas style rub that’ll have your taste buds slam-dancing and your forehead perspiring in moments. Fire of the Mountain’s Highlands location of 32nd and Newton in Denver will also be hosting a fee free ticket night on Wednesday July 12th where ticket holders can show their ticket or proof of purchase and get a complimentary featured draft! They will also be serving our special beer from O’Dell brewing…
- Speaking of O’Dell brewing, we have partnered with this mainstay Colorado beer brewer to create our very own, very crushable, very tasty beer called “We Don’t Party Pils” in honor of our record release weekend. This beer will be available at all three Colorado shows as well as both Fire on the Mountain Denver locations the week of the shows.
- Do you like to shred the gnar? Do you live for that sweet pow pow? Well then you’re going to be stoked to know that we will be giving away a brand new Never Summer Industries snowboard at each Colorado show! Never Summer have been one of our long time supporters and they have graciously donated these rad boards for our shows. We’re still working out how they will be given away, but rest assured, these boards are coming!
- NEW MERCH! We have placed an order with our friends at Blackout Screenprinting and will have some BITCHIN’ new shirts at the table!
- NEW MUSIC! Our final bonus single “Tres Reyes” along with a sick lyric video is scheduled for release on Thursday July 13th!
- KILLER MUSICIANS! In addition to performing as a six-piece lineup for these shows, we will also be joined by our friends The Blind Staggers from Chicago and local up and comers Ipecac, both bands you really need to see. We will also have quite the roster of local Denver talent joining us on stage for special cameo appearances.
- And finally THE NEW ALBUM! We will have copies of the long awaited album “The Front Lines of Good Times Vol. I” available for sale and signature at all three shows! If you want to reserve your copy in advance, you can do so via our label Glory or Death Records - https://gloryordeathrecords.bandcamp.com/album/the-front-lines-of-good-times-vol-i
Aight then. That’s enough gassin’ y’all up for one email. This is a big deal for us and we’re just so god damn thrilled. We hope to see you at one or more of these shows, give ya a squeeze and do some rockin’ out together.
See you in two weeks!
