Autumnal Road Arks


This is approaching. Perhaps a little faster than I'd like. But soon Arks will be back out on the highway, throwing equipment onto stages and looking at the backs of people's heads as they freshen up their drinks. What are they drinking? If it ends up on our faces, we'll let you know.

We have discovered through experience what it takes to be a band on tour. Does it take passion? Does it take vim? We're not sure, we were too busy driving like hell to the next show. And so we found this out: it takes a van. Our old van, dubbed "The Shepherd" has gone to greener junk yards (though you can read about its adoption here: "In The Van"). So we've garnered another. And shaped some new songs. Let's hope all the new constructs hold up on the road.

That's awesome! despite the running around (nyc one night, Pittsburgh the next? that's gonna be a haul), I'm sure it's all going to be good. Looking forward to seeing you guys, I'm definitely going to try and make it to one of them.
Even the tour poster layout looks awesome, btw

Thanks for the compliment on the poster, and hopefully we'll see you at one of the shows. Most of the shows we have lined up this time around should be pretty great. I know we're all looking forward to heading back out on the road, eating far too much crappy fast food, and making noise in the handful of states gracious enough to host us.
