we have a split coming out with PISSWALKER from Omaha. they are our friends and they a fantastic band. we probably should’ve chosen a shittier band to put out a split with. you can preview it at the following links
the Brain Tumors Bandcamp has a ton of old stuff. unreleased versions of songs and shit. we will PROBABLY be doing a limited east-coast tour in may and we’re planning on recording another 7″ in april. we should have an LP done this year as well.
the 3/22/13 update of Brain Tumors in Birmingham, AL with Anwar Sadat and Drones will probably appear in an issue of Maximum Rocknroll coming up fairly soon. maybe by the time it comes out i will have lost the weight needed to fit into the badass shirt i got from them.
i hit my head on dan’s drum cymbal. i have done it probably 40 times before. no one has ever noticed that i do it (that i know of), even pat and joel. during the last song we played in the basement of a mercado for our friend jaime carrera’s performance festival, i hit my head on dan’s cymbal again. but i was too drunk or too stupid or too sad or too angry and nailed the wingnut. so i bled a lot. i did not get knocked out, but i got very dizzy for a moment.
a lot has happened since we last spoke. most of our gear is broken in some way and we’re all more broke than ever. i am contemplating pulling a poser move and creating an INDIEGOGO for this band. but then again, maybe it is not a poser move as BRAIN TUMORS has always been a poser band of sorts – except for joel’s record collection. but what the fuck, making an INDIEGOGO can’t hurt us anymore than dan shithead johnson wearing a Comeback Kid shirt at our shows.
i am going to Texas and will probably see some Chaos in Tejas shit, despite probably being blackballed from ever playing it. i guess that’s what you get when you send a bunch of emails about Ozzfest and Marilyn Manson to the organizer of a punk festival. Continue reading →
“dude have you heard what henry rollins said about gay marriage dude he is so right i cant believe the singer of a seminal hardcore band is brave enough to speak his mind about a totally brainless and rational issue that is already widely supported amongst people who know who he is”
“dude have you heard what revolutionary internet punk drew from brain tumors said about henry rollins he is so right i cant believe the singer of a largely unnotable hardcore band is brave enough to speak his mind about a totally brainless celebrity”
i got some free fingerless gloves which were left in a paper bag with my name on them at Extreme Noise, probably by Antoine from WILD CHILD. make sure you check out their new record on DERANGED RECORDS.
this is some shit that my work goes to every year. it is in St. Louis. my girlfriend is still watching Desperate Housewives. all of the women on this show look like puppies and all the men on this show look like dudes with goatees. Continue reading →
as i said before, we completed another tour. i am going to try to be better about updating this in a timely way so that i am not still writing about last tour when we are preparing to go on another tour. anyway, ahead is our Appleton, Wisconsin shit. it contains death, disappearances, and a personal meltdown related to wordpress failing to embed a Helloween video. also, i am still writing for the Riverfront Times, the most punk weekly of the Village Voice series because it is based in the most punk place, St. Louis. here is an article i wrote about commercials terrorizing my fucking brain
