Email Update!

What's shakin? So we made it home from tour alive and well even though we almost didn't.. Taking
the wrong train from Manhattan to the Bronx and wandering around searching for your van at 3 am
for a couple hours isn't something I recommend... It seems every time we go out the tours just
keep getting better and better and this was no exception... Thanks so much to all the bands we
played with and kids we hung out with who made this tour awesome... Extra big props to our boy
Mike (Slur/Smeegle) for representing on this tour with us and doing a great job selling our
stuff and dealing with our crap... We definitely had a great time and can't wait to hit it up

Highs: Leaving, Megan's House, Freddy Vs Jason, Breakfast at Megan's House, Drill Sergeant Wake
Up Calls, Cul de Sac Football, Downtown Baltimore, CT Kids, Reject Clothing, Almost dying while
ordering food at Hubbas, Almost dying from eating food from Hubbas, Dorm room showers, Late

Inner Goth in Columbus, El Mariachi 24 hour Mexican Food!!!, Getting to see pics of certain band
members with mullets from the Jr High days, Mike's amazing technique of insulting kids, Ashley
from Reckless Industry, Riz Vs Slur wrestlemania and the Insane amount of idiocy that followed
resulting in way too much exposure with the photographic evidence to prove it, and the sense of
satisfaction you get from not having to wake up and go to work the next morning...

Lows: 17 hours drives featuring engine problems and blowouts that rip the fender off your
trailer.. Playing a show for 12 kids following said drive... Getting sick, Shows with 2 local
bands that have a whopping 4 kids paid, 3 of which came to see us, the band from 1000 miles
away.. Being subjected to the stories of wannabe tough guys for far too long, 3 am wake up calls
from campus security, Pretentious Scenester kids (Florida has nothing on the scenester level of
the kids in NY ), Getting lost in the Bronx (mainly just the walking and the impending sense of
death), Getting sick, again, The aftermath of finding out people in West Virginia really know
how to party, Being propositioned by some not so savory locals in Painseville, Realizing none of
us own enough black to be cool in Columbus, Kid without enough geographical knowledge to know
Florida = Far, pretentious scenester kids (again), and coming home....

To anyone and anything I forgot, I'm sorry.. It's 2:45 AM, forgive me?

We've got a few shows coming up so try and make it out if you can. We're making our first ever
trip to South Florida this Friday so if you live in that area or know anyone that does try and
come out... We're also heading back to Texas from around Nov 7th to the 21st.. If anyone can
help us out this time around.. please get in touch... Take care, hope to see you soon...

help... Keep Rokken...
