Liferuiner Announce They Won’t Be Breaking Up

Not that there appeared to be any evidence to the contrary, but the Canadian based Liferuiner have released a statement in which they have decided to not breakup:

“So after almost 10 years as a band, writing and recording 3 albums, a demo, and an EP, touring the world with bands that have now become life long friends and also meeting some of the best friends well ever have on tour all of the world we as a band have decided NOT to break up. Literally what’s the point? The idea that a band has hit it’s plateau means nothing, it just means you aren’t working for it anymore. There is no limit to what a band, an artist, a person can accomplish if you keep pushing forward.

Canadian legends Rush toured in a van for almost 20 years before they were discovered and now they sell out arenas. I know we probably haven’t toured to your city, but that doesn’t mean we won’t. It just means we haven’t yet. So with that being said we’d like you all to know we are recording a new record and are pumped for you to hear it….and yes at some point well come to your city to play all your favourite new and old tunes. Thanks guys!”

Oh, Sleeper Recruit Ex-Guitarist For Upcoming Shows As Shane Blay Tours With Wovenwar

With their guitarist/vocalist Shane Blay on tour with Wovenwar, Oh, Sleeper have had to recruit some replacements to fill-in at upcoming shows. Ex-guitarist James Erwin will return to the fold temporarily to help fill in on Blay‘s vocals and take on the rhythm guitar parts while Oh, Sleeper guitarist Nate Grady will thus oversee the leads. The bands screamer, etc. Micah Kinard said of the matter:

“…WHO’S PUMPED ABOUT DIRTY SOUTH FEST COMING UP IN AUSTIN HOUSTON AND DALLAS!?!? Our brother Shane is going to be with WOVENWAR at the time of these shows and wishes he could do it all but didn’t want us to cancel them so the one and only James Erwin will be returning to fill in on vocals and guitar while our very own Nate “The Mouse” Grady covers the leads! (Thats right, Shane “BLAYZOD” Blay is such a baller, we gotta divide his parts between two people). Please show your support for WOVENWAR by getting their debut record and making it to both our shows in Austin and cheer him on as well!
Lots of exciting stuff on the horizon! See you all soon!”

Oh, Sleeper dates:

08/01 Austin, TX – Dirty Dog Bar
08/03 Houston, TX – Walters
