Tour's over. We're home. Updated merch section. - Oct 7th, 2013

We’re home from tour and we had a great time. Thanks to everyone who came out to the shows and helped us out in any way. We really appreciate it, and we hope to go out again soon.

We are planning on it being out early next year. Until that time you can order the CD or cassette of it (and our other albums) from our merch page. We are also clearing out some of our old shirt designs, so you can get them for $5 a piece while you’re at it.

Tony Flaminio - Grim Repair cassette is out now! Last Mohawk Place shows. - Dec 18th, 2012

Today Tony’s solo album “Grim Repair” was released. It’s a split release between One Percent Press and Sheets of Tens. You can order it for $5 from either of those labels or from our merch page. It has 13 songs that were written and recorded before Sinker came out. About half of these songs ended up becoming Failures’ Union songs.

In sadder news, Mohawk Place (our home in Buffalo) is closing down next month due to a handful of reasons. It is a bar/club/venue that has meant a lot to all of us in the band. We’re proud to have been asked to play the last show on January 13th. It’s a part of a two day send off that is going to be complete insanity. Tickets go on sale tomorrow at noon and they are $10 per day.

Quiet Country Audio - Aug 17th, 2012

Things have been quiet from us. We’ve slowly but surely been writing and recording our new record. We finally started mixing it, so it will hopefully be done soon. To take a break from that we did a session with Paul Besch at Quiet Country Audio. We recorded four songs live (two with video, two just audio). You can check them out here.
In other news, on September 27th we’ll be playing with The Jealous Sound at Mohawk Place. We played our first show with them back in 2004, so it’s great to be playing with them again. Also playing is Tony’s other band, Returners.

Tour's over. - Nov 9th, 2011

We’re home from tour now. We saw a lot of friends, played some rad shows, and got guns in our faces/bashed against our heads. Overall a good time. Thanks to everyone involved, but a special thanks to Christian for filling in on drums for us. He was a real champ, and it was great having him along. Now back to working on/recording the new album.

Tour starts tomorrow. - Oct 21st, 2011

We leave for our east coast/Fest tour tomorrow. Unfortunately Blake got into some trouble with the law, so he’s in the hut for a couple of weeks. We picked up our friend Christian in Michigan and he’s going to be playing drums for us. Hopefully we’ll see a bunch of you in the upcoming weeks.
