Tuesday. June 9. 2009. 8:55 am

So today is the day.
Try and stay calm
Try and act cool.

I'll go to the ice rink this morning.
No one there knows I play in a band or have a record out today.

It's hot in pittsburgh.
But perhaps I'm just uber sensitive.
Not to mention, on record release day, on a show day, the Pittsburgh Penguins have a huge game 6. PUKE CITY.

Crazy day yesterday.
Skated for an hour and a half.
Practiced for our CD Release show tonight, we played "Punk By The Book." crazy.
Had an eye appointment, I have 20/15 vision. That is better than 20/20 my friends.
They say I am a perfect example of Lasik Surgery working. Poster child. ha. TECHNOLOGY MAN!
I drove home in the pittsburgh sun, eyes dilated. Trying/hoping not to crash.
Then spent the rest of the day on the computer or cell phone.
YES, I LOVE TECHNOLOGY.
Had a great conversation with GREENPEACE that I am following up today.
We have always wanted to work on a campaign with them, it looks as if it may finally come to fruition.

Ok.
Deep breath.
All is great.

Much Love
Much Respect

greenpeace? sweet, i talked for a good half hour with a greenpeace rep on a freezing cold march day. we spoke for ages about governance, climate change, hypocrisy and in the end i joined up, paying £8 a month.
good bunch of people

kaitlyn said...

Adelleda said...

The new CD was wonderful. I pre-ordered it, so I got the shirt, the poster, the EP and the 2 extra download songs. They are all amazing. Thank you so much. It meant the world to me to hear it. I own all of your CDs and this one was pretty high up on the list as far as my favorites go. I love listening to it and then listening to Underground Network, my favorite CD of all time.
Thank you and I hope your show went well.

peaceloveunity,

Freeman

ps- hopefully I can see you all in VA on a non Warped Tour Date.

Hi #2,

I got the new album last monday. It sounds great, I'm really happy of your "never-lost" inspiration! Relevant lyrics, straight songs ("You are fired", what a hardcore song!) and real pleasure listening to it. My favorite one is still "Sodom, Gomorrah, Washington D.C.".

I've read some reviews on the web and you seem have the unanimity! It's a pleasure too because medias did not really like the last LP...

I'm glad to see you talk about Greenpeace, I follow them since several months. You also talked about Emmaus for next Antidote Eastpak Tour, you're generous and...I'm really proud of you! :-)

Unfortunately, the show in Belgium will be too far of my home...and I will not be at your next show at Pukkelpop this summer cause it's too expensive (you're the only band I wanna see that day)! Maybe another date in Belgium...?

Much love

Baptiste

PS: I've received the two unreleased songs by e-mail and they are as good as these on the album!! Really good job guys

I wish i Could Buy your new album so much , But I do not have enough money mainly because I am 14 years old.

My Brother introduced me to Anti-Flag. He gave me the "A New Kind of Army" album when i was 11 or 12 I sorta forget. Anyways Anti-Flag Rocks!

Kevin said...

I finally got the album it rocks!

I used very little of the $200 that my parents have back to me cause they owed me. Can't Believe It's Only $12!

nibbleceo said...

Beca is right , your journals are awesome! The People or the Gun is incredible! I Can't Pick My Favourite Song It Is Between "The Economy Is Suffering .. Let It Die" and
"When All The Lights Go Out"

ANTI-FLAG IS AWESOME!

Kevin said...

Kevin said...

Chris (#2) and Justin are my 2 favourite band members. My Favourite Album is "The People or the Gun"
You Guys rock.
