Manual Dexterity Interview

The kind folks over at Manual Dexterity interviewed Max for their May 2012 issue.  The issue also features interviews with fellow Tiny Engineers State Lines, Keith Latinen of Empire Empire! (I Was a Lonely Estate)/CYLS Records, and Nate Kinsella of Joan of Arc.  You can read the interview HERE and check out a digital preview of the entire zine HERE, though we recommend picking up a physical copy because they look great.  The zine actually comes in a few different sections all stuffed into 7” packaging along with a CD and a few art prints.

Here’s the cover of our section. Killer design work.

i am wasted but i’m ready

Damn. This weekend was great. Big ups to Restorations, Red Collar, Josh & Sarah at Treasure Fest, Monument, Scotty Sandwich, The Dougout folks in DC, and of course the Tiny Engines crew.

Got a few local-ish shows coming up before we hit the road in July.

Sat 6.9.12 - Weapons of Mass Creation Fest (Cleveland, OH).  We play at 7:50 with some of our favorite bands like Algernon Cadwallader, Into It. Over It., Hop Along, Empire Empire!, Worship This and many more.  Check the schedule here.

Sat 6.23.12 - West End Art Space (Ashtabula, OH) w/ Tigers Jaw & CityCop // FB

Finally, tour is coming together really nicely.  Check the dates/RSVP here.

We have 19 of 28 shows confirmed.  Most of the other ones are booked and we’re just waiting on confirmation.  We’re still struggling with a TX date on Sat 7/21 (San Antonio? Houston?) and also on Wed/Thurs 8/1 & 8/2 in the Bay Area (San Francisco/Oakland/San Jose/Santa Cruz).  If you can help out, get in touch:  SignalsMidwest@gmail.com.

I’m gonna go sleep through this week. See ya.
