|This Flood Covers the Earth tour help?
||[22 Nov 2006|09:19pm]
Hi. I'm Charlie. I play guitar and scream a lot in This Flood Covers the Earth, a post-hardcore band from San Diego along the lines of Botch, City of Caterpillar, Drive Like Jehu, Funeral Diner, Isis, Swing Kids, Unwound, etc. We have a Myspace account with some songs on it that you can listen to here: www.myspace.com/thisfloodcoverstheearth.
We have a split 12"/CD with fellow San Diegans Lanterns that came out this summer, and we have a new 7" coming out on Dood Records mid-December.
So far we've done a west coast tour, a southwest tour, and a full US tour, and are looking to tour the west coast again this winter... however, we've run into some snags with booking and are looking for any help that anyone could give us. This is our itinerary...
12/29 San Diego CA @ the Che Cafe, w/ Comadre, 400 Blows, Secret Fun Club
12/30 Tijuana MEX @ TBA w/ Comadre, I Am Cataclysm

|We're pretty fucked... think you can help?

Hey guys, we're more than a week into tour and still looking for some help...
This is for This Flood Covers the Earth and Lanterns.
Flood = screamy epic post-hardcore, hear them here: myspace
Lanterns = loud indie guitar rock, hear them here: myspace
Basically, we're looking for anything, and I will stress ANYTHING at this point. We have our own PA with us, if you could just give us access to your living room or basement or garage for an evening and invite your friends over and let us pass a hat around and try and sell some shit, that would be amazing. A lot of people have been really great and helped out, but a ton of other people flaked on us and pretty much fucked us while we're a thousand miles from home. Any help at all would be amazing, so if you can, please hit us up.

|We leave soon for tour and we need some help...
||[06 Jul 2006|09:51pm]
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.

If you think you can help, please feel free to respond in this medium, or to email us @ email@example.com, or via our Myspace, or by calling Travis @ 858 442 3161 anytime of day or night (my phone is being rather persnickety these days).
We can and will offer and honor any and all show trades in San Diego, Orange County, and Los Angeles. We try to be upstanding, role model-worthy young men.
Thanks for reading, and thanks for your time. Hopefully we'll hear from you and see you on the road this summer.
xoxo Charlie / Flood / Lanterns
