Yesterday I played the last show with Another Day In Hell, screaming hate for the work-every-day life that we're forced into.

Today I'm back in my office, doing what I always seem to be doing.

This is how we die...

It's Another Day In Hell's last show this weekend. I'm not really looking forward to it because I had the best time being in this band and I didn't want it to end. But you know how life goes, it's like a dice roll. It's going to be emotional.

I got the CD back from the replication place a week ago. I'm glad that it arrived in time for the show, so at least there was some kind of record of us as a band.
Getting it, and the shirts, made was enough to prompt me to do something for the Half Shell webstore, so that's finally online. I've got a couple of other things planned for it later in the summer, including the Outbreak shows, late in August, that I'm promoting along with Demented and Red Ranger. More about that later. I should probably start a blog specifically for Half Shell.

Every time I visit the Half Shell profile, and the songs there start playing, it surprises me how much I miss Barntown.

So yeah. This weekend is Demented Fest. There's going to be heaps of good acts playing, including Forging Friendships, First Death, Real Talk! and CiarĂ¡n Parnell. The Half Shell distro will be there, so there'll be stuff to buy. Lucky you.

My home boy, Will, is coming over from England for this. I'm really looking forward to that because he's absolutely hilarious in a moshpit.

Look Back Records will also have their distro at the show. They recently put out the new First Death EP, and it's well worth picking up. They'll also have copies of the Looking Back zine, which was put together by Iano and Wally, and is well worth a read. If you can't make it to the show, and you should really try, you can get both of these from their webstore which is linked to below in the sweet promo poster for 'Ausgang City'.

Deep breaths...


I finally got around to doing some stuff on the Half Shell Records side of things. I updated the MySpace page and created a new webstore where you can come and give me all your beautiful money. I've put all the Half Shell releases to date in there.

Another Day In Hell's final show is less than a fortnight away. The closer it gets, the unhappier I become. I'm definitely going to be upset on the night. There are some other great bands playing over that weekend aswell. The flier's below. Everyone should go.

Our show on the 20th June with Crowd Control, Frigits and Exploding Birds was amazing. Easily one of the most fun gigs I've ever played. All the bands were great. Crowd Control are currently somewhere in Euroland being phenomenal. If you get a chance to see them, do it.

The last of the shirts that we got made up for the show went the other day. I'm really happy that so many people were interested in getting one, especially those who ordered one from outside of Ireland.

The often delayed ADiH CD went in to be duplicated the other day. It'll have all 7 of the tracks that we recorded on it and should be back in time for the final show. The cover and tray artwork is by the ever awesome Simon Erl. He's currently wandering round the states, being an incredible bum. He's seriously one of the best guys ever. Much love, bro.

Annoyingly, my XBox red ringed last night when I was trying to drive fast into stuff. I've had it since the european launch, so it's gotten a pretty good run, but I think I can still get it repaired free of charge. Here's hoping.

That's all for now.

Agony I was taught

There's very little I can be bothered with.
