Devotion will be performing on Thursday August 29th at The Josephine in Seattle along side Owen Hart, Wreck Tacoma, and more. This show is a chance to wish Devotion guitar player Bob "Chef" Reed and his wife Amy well on their upcoming move to Los Angeles, California. Bob is moving south to further his musical talents, and if his performance on the new Devotion album is any indication, his future is extremely bright.


Almost exactly one year to the day of entering the studio, the final touches for the new album have been tracked. Over the past twelve months countless hours have been logged in engineer Jackson Long's HMS Studio, as well as Squared Studios where some key vocals were laid down, and of course the Columbia City Theater where all drum performances were committed to tape. Indeed, the arduous process of mixing down these explorations of sonic excess still remains, but we are all one huge step closer to hearing a new Devotion release.

Rainfest was a blast as usual. Thanks to everyone involved in making it happen and everyone who came out on Friday evening to enjoy some "Southernfriedhardcoregrungerock".

We printed a new take on a classic design for the fest, the remainder of which have been added to our online store, in addition to a reprint of our first "Mucha" baseball shirt design of yesteryear. You can find both of those right HERE.

With both Rainfest and our recent performance in Bellingham with Black Breath and Crag Dweller out of the way we will now resume work on recorded audio visual material. Stay tuned.

Thanks to everyone involved in making the tour a success, we hope to see you again soon. In the meantime, our webstore, which has been out of commission for some time, is back online and has been updated with the last few remaining new shirts that were printed for the tour, as well as our traditional designs.
