Looking for some fun?

That fine fellow to the far left is none other than your old friend and mine, Andrew Dost. As previously mentioned, Andrew joined forces with Nate Ruess (from The Format) and Jack Antonoff (from Steel Train), formed this new project, and called it fun. They're new record, Aim and Ignite, came out Tuesday and they're currently zigzagging all over the country on tour (including a few Michigan dates). Check it out!


Return to the West

We've returned from the Far East and what wonderful time we had! We traveled to many familiar places but a few new ones as well. Some of the first-time highlights were: Kinkakuji, The Kamakura Daibutsu, Hachimangu Temple, a Tokyo Giants game, playing with Qurage and Sistertail.

It was also great to see some old friends. We were able to play with Buddhistson the first night of the tour. Our goods friends, who play in the band aie, were nice enough to pick us up at the airport and take us directly to our favorite ramen shop 角ふじ. I recommend this place if you ever find yourself just east of Tokyo. We were able to visit Stiff Slack record store and Tak helped put on a memorable show at KD Japon in Nagoya.

The trip couldn't have gone any better (unless it lasted for another month) and it's all thanks to Moor Works. Wonderful people, running a wonderful label. We're indebted to them for giving Anathallo an experience we won't forget for the rest of our lives. Getting back won't happen soon enough!

This past tour was in support of a DVD documenting our December 2008 tour in Japan. If anyone thinks they would like to purchase a copy of the DVD I think we can get a few shipped over here. If you are interested please send an email to contact@anathallo.com.
