We’ve got some announcements to make. These will come, shortly, we swear (European and local tour dates, plus more!).
But firstly, we’re playing an awesome show as part of MEGAPHONO’s festival here in Ottawa at the Diefenbunker on February 4th. This won’t be one to be missed.
Next up, we were just hailed as one of Canada’s best punk bands by the CBC. We’re in great company with a lot of friends on this list, so be sure to check them all out.
It’s been a wild year, and a particularly intense summer. Thanks to everyone who came out to our album release show in Ottawa, as well as Arboretum Fest.

WHoa… So, we just finished recording a new LP for Dirtnap in Oakland, California with Matthew Melton (Warm Soda, Bare Wires etc.), and we have to say, it’s going to be a great one. Should be out THIS SUMMER! Matthew grew up in Memphis and learned to record with Jay Reatard – He even took the “Blood Visions” cover photo. Let’s just say we were in good hands.
We’ve also got some dates in Canada, Japan and beyond coming soon. Check the “shows” page for more.
Lastly, our pals LATIDA Records in Vancouver just released our HIGH ABOVE EP on 7″, and word has it’s been selling quite well. Check out http://www.latidarecords.com for more info!
Go grab a copy of Razorcake #77 from your favourite rag store NOW! Even Chapters sells it, so go grab one!
Also, big news coming: we hit the studio in February to start working on our NEW LP!
Lastly, our new 7″ EP “High Above” is now out on http://www.latidarecords.com. Grab one of those, two!
More shows! Euuu!
Well, hello. We’ve been added to Vancouver’s own Fall Down/Get Down Festival this November. Really excited to be a part of it. The Vancouver show will also be a release party for our new 3 track 7″ EP out on LATiDA Records! We’ll be at Logan’s in Victoria on the 15th as well. Hope to see all you west-coasters there.
Hey ya’ll – just a quick update here from SAB headquarters. Our third LP, aptly titled “Third”, will be released on Dirtnap Records on February 12th on LP/Digital formats (a CD version will also be available on Waterslide Records from Japan). Might be our best yet! We’ve also completed our first video, which we’ll be able to post shortly. Our album release will be March 2nd at Babylon in Ottawa. Plans for a west coast US/Canadian tour currently in the works, so stay tuned.
In the meantime, here’s an interview we did with Nardwuar for FFWD Weekly in Calgary during Sled Island:
