Hopefully everyone is enjoying their summer thus far. If your going to the Warped Tour this year be sure to check out our bros in FireKills (as they'll be doing the whole west coast leg of the tour). Also be on the lookout for a re-release of ATA's "it will consume you" ep (remastered w/ videos and bonus materials) coming out soon on Dirty Fiction Records! check out www.ThisIsDirtyFiction.com for more info on this release and the new Natchet Taylor full length "Barley Legal" out in Aug on Dirty Fiction Records!
Also speaking of Natchet Taylor, our bro Rob (their drummer) and his girl Jess were hit by a drunk driver while walking to their car last Friday night. Please send your love out to the guys and girls in the Natchet Taylor crew during this time of hardship. (not only did that blow their spot on the Warped Tour this year, it also cut out their west coast touring plans) Right now plans are being made for a Benefit Show to help Rob pay for his medical expenses, so keep your ears open for more details about that show and how you can help out. http://www.natchettaylor.com/ has a paypal button set up on their highspeed site where you can donate your dollars to help out a friend in need.

Big thanks to everyone who came out to the APR cd release, the Pre warped party in San Antonio, or the Vans warped tour! We had a great time playing all of these shows and the Hell's Rats represented strong last weekend! Here are my top ten moments from the 2004 Vans warped tour weekend.
1. a flash flood in the pre show early morning and
our own stupidity caused Brady and I to have soaking wet shoes and socks for
the whole day.
2. the rain stopping and the sun coming out.
3. a bunch of kids I've never seen before rocking out in the front during our set like we were their favorite band (thanks kids)
4. our friend Jason from affordable sound actually having a long line in front of him waiting for ATA demo cds and stickers.
5. Adam puking after the set, and then later us watching some trendy pop punk kids sitting in that very same puke.
6. underoath's amazing set! all you could see was blurs of long hair and flying guitar necks.
7. sharing a lonestar with flogging molly
8. having a 3 day ROCK FIGHT w/ Firekills and Rubberhed, which I think ended in a 3 way tie w/ Rubberhed taking the apr show, Air Tight Alibi taking the pre-warped, and FireKills taking the warped tour.
9. cat trashing our hotel room with buttermilk ranch.
10. the Hells Rats taking over the Howard Johnson.
Next thursday night is the Austin Punk Rock Comp 2 CD Release Party!!!, the lineup is kick ass and the show starts early at 7:30pm. That night we'll be raffeling off one of our crew passes to this years Vans Warped Tour in San Antonio TX. $1 per entry could win you a band pass to the warped and a copy of our cd!
