We leave soon for tour and we need some help...

Hello there.

I'm about to leave on tour with my band, This Flood Covers the Earth, and our friends, Lanterns. We have a split record that just came out on History Major Records, and were hoping to play some shows this summer in support of it around the country.

Flood plays epic, heavy post-hardcore, some influences: Botch, Isis, Drive Like Jehu, Unwound, Mission of Burma, Funeral Diner. Lanterns plays spacey, aggressive indie rock, some influences: Pavement, the Jesus and Mary Chain, Meneguar, Cap'n Jazz, My Bloody Valentine, Heroin. Both bands have Myspaces with some sounds on them, so you can hear for yourself, Flood's is here, Lanterns' is here.

We could really use some help on some of these dates, and honestly, we'll play pretty much anywhere, as long as it's all ages (or [grudgingly] 18+). This includes a DIY space, a club, a bar, your living room one night, your garage in the afternoon, your basement at four in the morning... well, you get the idea. We don't need guarantees or to be fed or to be given places to stay, we just need places to play, and we really will take anything and will just be stoked to each play for twenty minutes and make some new friends with the dozen or so people that trickle in and pay attention to us for two-thirds of an hour total.

Tour Contacts?

Hi there. I'm trying to book a summer tour for my band, This Flood Covers the Earth, and our friends, Lanterns. Flood sounds like mid-'90's Ebullition crossed with early-'00's Level Plane, with some doom metal and indie stuff thrown in. Lanterns are like Drive Like Jehu covering My Bloody Valentine songs. Flood's Myspace is here, Lanterns' is here. Recently, we've been having some trouble throughout the midwest, New England, and the south, and were wondering if we could get some help as far as contacts go.

States we need help with:

Connecticut
Florida
Georgia
Illinois
Iowa
Kansas
Kentucky
Nebraska
Massachusetts
Michigan
Minneapolis
Ohio
Oklahoma
Rhode Island
South Dakota
Tennessee
Virginia
West Virginia
Wisconsin

So yeah, if you book shows, or know people who do, feel free to get in touch with us, either through this medium, or by emailing us at thisfloodcoverstheearth@gmail.com, or by shooting us a line on Myspace. For those interested, yes, we can offer show trades in San Diego, Orange County, and Los Angeles.

Thanks!
