Hi everyone,

I just want to thank everyone for all the love we've gotten as we finish up the 1st leg of the Slackers' rocksteady swindle tour. We really couldnt have asked for a better time.

We started the tour out in california and 32 shows later we are finishing it up in boston at harper's ferry.

Its been fun sharing the new songs with you guys and we are planning on continuing our mission in august through the fall. We got festival shows and some club dates in Europe in August, followed up boat gigs, midwestern, and eastern canada dates through the end of october.

Yeh, if you havent been swindled yet, check out the latest slackers release on epitaph, the Great Rocksteady Swindle. Its available on Epitaph in the states/canada, Epitaph Europe in europe (obviously), and Disk Union in Japan. You can get it in cd or vinyl for or download it on whatevsi or itunes. Whatevski has special package versions with bonus dub tracks and live concerts.

Also, in true slacker fashion we just received the vinyl of Lost & Found (our 2009 release). Its courtesy of the lovely people at paper or plastic. It should be available soon on places like Interpunk and at the slackers merch table on tour.

We should have some more limited edition vinyl out by the end of the year. We should also have some more live recording available on whatevski.

Plus coming soon on authority music, will the be the first slackers song put into the Rock Band format, Everyday is Sunday. Yeh, its a brave new world.

So thanks for all the love we have received. We are gonna be out on the road again come august. See you then!

Thanks to everyone for the great turnouts we are having on the Slackers' Rocksteady Swindle Tour!
So far we have had a couple sellouts and a bunch of packed out shows. Regardless of the turnout though,
i got to say Im really thankful for everyone's enthusiasm. I could ask for more love.
Here is a nice review of our recent london show by the way. http://www.distortedmagazine.com/reviews/the-slackers-the-skints-dirty-revolution

So we did Belgium, UK, and Koln. We got the rest of Germany, France, Switzerland, Denmark, and Holland coming up!
We are being joined for many of these dates with an up and coming band from the UK called the Skints, and I know I will finally get to check out the dutch band, the Delegators in Amsterdam.

And to our North American fans...dont think we are ignoring you. We got some east coast dates in early june and we got some tour dates coming up in the midwest and eastern canada that we are just starting to post for september & october!
Sooner or later...we will get around to coming to your town!

And the east coast shows, Im really happy to note that we will be playing with some fun groups including the Caroloregians/Moon Invaders, Karuhata, Jordan Valentine & the Sunday Saints, the Scotch Bonnets, the Forthrights, and Guns of Navarronne. Should be a blast!

Thanks again. I hope you are enjoying the new disc.
See you out there.
