Thank you to everyone who came out to the shows, talked to us, gave us a place to stay, put on a show, etc. It was tons of fun and hopefully we'll see you all again soon. Thank you most importantly to our friend Brendan Ekstrom from Maryland who played for us on the entire tour. Everyone check out Brendan's band called 200 North, their new cd is amazing and will be out in a few weeks on Da Core Records. Also thanks to Pat McCormick and Kelly Missell for going along with us and making the experience that much more fun and Smalley for running around naked more than we needed."
