Methinks it is no journey.


We are back from our 40day trek across (a solid half) of North America. Thanks to everyone who helped with the shows, came out, bought merch, etc. Our apologies to those who were put out by the confusion stemming from our last-minute cancellations/moved shows/obscure addresses.
