The Spill Canvas Announce ‘One Fell Swoop’ Anniversary Tour


This August, the Spill Canvas’ sophomore album, One Fell Swoop, will officially turn ten and in honor of the momentous occasion, the band have decided to head out on their own tenth anniversary tour.

“It’s so unbelievable to me that ten years later, we’re still able to call this dream we had our jobs,” said Spill Canvas frontman Nick Thomas.

“We’re grateful and honored to be able to play our fans an album front to back that means just as much to us as it does to many of you. It’s been such a long time since we’ve played some of these songs, and even longer for the few we’ve never even played live before. We’re beyond excited to get back out on the road, and hope to see you at a show.”

The almost month-long trek will begin on Aug. 5 at the Larmier Lounge in Denver and wrap up on Aug. 23 at The Middle East (Upstairs) in Boston. The band will welcome the Press War onto the trek about half way through the journey (at the Pinelands Music Festival in Millville, NJ, to be exact).

Pre-sales for the “One Fell Swoop Tenth Anniversary Tour” will begin this Friday, May 22.

In a twist, the South Dakota band is slated to head out on another tenth anniversary tour this Summer though it’s not theirs. Beginning on July 11, The Spill Canvas will be opening for Motion City Soundtrack on the second leg of their “Commit This to Memory Tenth Anniversary Tour.”

If Music Festival Commercials Told the Truth…


The weather is getting warmer which is a sure-fire sign that music festival season has arrived. In no time, our timelines and newsfeeds will be plagued with photos (mostly selfies) of people at the numerous music festivals the world has to offer.

With Ultra Music Festival already over (took place in March) and Coachella already half way through, there are many more coming our way within the next couple of months. Where else can you drink silly, listen to goo music live and hang out with your long list of biffles?

At least, that’s what the commercials for the festivals have us believing.

The truth is, high-profiled music festivals are usually packed with “celebrities” and people dressed as fairies, the heat that makes you feel like you’re literally walking on the sun, overpriced food and drinks, porta-potties that make you wish you didn’t eat or drink those expensive items, and if you live in places where random thunderstorms are common (what’s up South Florida), you have that added dread of “is it going to pour today, or not?”

CollegeHumor who we all know for making parody of things that we love, have decided to make their own music festival commercial for their own music festival, Opapotamus. Since parodying something usually makes it a little more honest, you can tell that this commercial will touch on all those aforementioned issues that we encounter when we go to a festival.

Side note, we know that music festivals are not all bad. We have mostly good memories from the ones we’ve attended in the past.
