So.....none of us are really that good with technology. Not an excuse,really, just an explanation for our hiatus from the blogosphere. Big Whoop! Wanna fight about it?

OLD BUSINESS: You can check out the pictures from the CD release show on our website www.thecoathangers.com
That includes the photo booth pictures promised in our last post.

NEW OLD BUSINESS: We did a 5 week North American tour in June/July in support of Scramble. It was an adventure to say the least.

We made it up to the Great White North for the 1st time. Beautiful! The ppl were so nice (besides the annoyed cafe worker who served us even though she was closing)! In Toronto we found that you cannot make left turns and some streets cease to be two way when the green light is blinking at you. Winnepeg showed us just how crazy they could be when one of the members of the band we played with began shouting and throwing shot glasses at the wall behind the bar. Vancouver revealed it's dual nature. Driving through Kootenay Park reminded us of how unreal unspoiled nature can be.

Along the way we got to catch up with old friends (Demon's Claw, The Suicide Squeeze Posse, TAAS) and make new ones( the Numerators and A.J. the 85 year old comedian).
We got stopped by Bubbles the border patrol pooch in the middle of the desert for some questioning....and for her to show off her tricks like sniffing merch and swinging around on a stick. Tuscon's Hotel Congress gave some of us bad dreams....ghosts? The Pancake House in Lubbock, TX is half-restaurant & part make-shift museum. PLUS they have bacon pancakes!

Each us arrived home bruised and in one piec
Thank you to everyone that helped along the way!

This brings us to....
NEW NEW BUSINESS: Fall Tour starts 9/27. This time we're going out with Japandroids from Vancouver. Prepare for totally domination!
