This Means War

ped Tour Has Begun

Photo by Jered Scott

Considering that today was the first day of Warped Tour, it was a great day. Not perfect, not entirely smooth or comfortable (108 degrees during our set), but still great.

I think we're going to post a new song on our myspace tomorrow. Its called The Lining Is Silver.
Its another one off of The Bird And The Bee Sides (26 songs - comes out July 1 - ten bucks or less at most retailers).

Can't wait for San Fran tomorrow. Its supposed to be sunny with a high of seventy six.

O.K. Scott posted 107 and you say 108... which is it? ;) JK LOL That's pretty warm out. 76 is pretty hot for San Fran.

I saw the pic on Jon's blog. It's a great shot. Classic Jon stance. :)

I pre-ordered said cd already, but I think I paid more than $10, but I don't remember.

See ya next Sat. Stay cool. :)

today it was sunny with a high of about eighty and then it was cloudy with a chance of tornodoes ^^

i'm extremely excited about warped [and about the bird and the bee sides ^^], so i'll hopefully get a chance to talk to you and the rest of the guys when you're in cleveland :)

Your blogs always make me smile. :)

war... ped tour has begun lol.
just got back from amazon and the new album previews are awesome! "the last, the lost, the least" and "beaming" are probably the best. Beam me up, Scotty!

are those one of the nikes from the horror film shoe line? i don't like horror films myself.. well, only select ones, BUT i love haunted houses (the rides) and the shoe line looks extremely killer. i forget when they come out.. not till fall, right? so i guess they're not.

just miss talking to ya buddy. :(

sorry to use your comment box, matty. :/

I saw your newest picture on myspace. You looked like an angel. :) I love your music. God bless.

Amazazing! I feel like using all of the coolest words that aren't really words but should be... however none of them could really express how amazing you truly are. ^_^
I already get "The Lining Is Silver" stuck in my head just by reading the title! So what if I listened to it on repeat for an hour when I first got to download it because I pre-ordered the EP... -shifty eyes-
hehe "sunny with a high of 75 since you took my heavy heart and made it light and it's funny how you find you enjoy your life when you're happy to be alive!" YAY!
One of the many songs that, combined with prayer first, can bring me out of the depressing portion of my slight bipolarity.
Gah! I'm writing a book! >_< sorry I like leaving long comments because I can't stop talking/thinking/typing when I'm excited about Relient K (which is ALL THE TIME!!!) =D
Anyway, hope you guys are stayin hydrated! I wish you all could have done both warped AND creation this year but I guess that's always a tough decision... Oh well, just know that I'll be here in Washington praying for you guys =)

Christi said...

I can't wait for this record. So amazingly excited.
The Lining Is Silver is an amazingly awesome song.
I don't get to make it out to warped tour this year :(
But I DO get to see you guys on November 13th in my home town :D
November 13th is so far away though...

Andy G said...

Hope warped tour is the best for you this year Matt.
Hope Jesus gives you a wake up call!

Favorite band since 99.
Love you dudes despite the constant member changes and losses, haha.
YOU are my inspiration for songwriting

the new album is just... ownage.

Thank you for outdoing yourself once again!

And I'd like to conclude with five great things about America: Freedom, Justice, America, and Taco Bell.
