Rival Schools

Liskfest, aka the festival in Cali that Gorilla Biscuits was reuniting for, has been cancelled due to "poor ticket sales". Rival Schools were supposed to play the fest too. Check out a new/unreleased track streaming at their myspace...

"Sweet" was on the vinyl version of United By Fate. I'm not sure now why it didn't make the album because I really like it now (hindsight!). It's very poppy and has a New Order-ish feel that is only hinted at on the rest of the record. The lyrics are about hidden relationships, there's a lot of them, lyrics I mean. Anyhoo, while we're getting our new stuff together and gearing up for our US shows thought this might be interesting for the page.
Both NYC-area Rival Schools shows are now sold out. Updated tour dates below...

The reunited Rival Schools
RS

Rival Schools have reunited, this much we knew. But now, the band is announcing that they will work on a follow-up to United By Fate and plan to play "a few choice autumnal shows". The only announced US show so far is Lisk Fest in Irvine, CA (tickets here). This fest which will see Walter working double time because Gorilla Biscuits are also playing that show. To quote the band, "our stokeage level is high".

*cough*Quicksand*cough*

Rival Schools

Walter Schriefels' short-lived post-Quicksand project, Rival Schools, have reunited to record some new tunes and lined up a seven date tour of the UK leading up to an appearance at the Hove Festival in Norway. Here's Walter from an interview posted @ RockSound:

"We have got this June tour and we still want to play some shows in the States. Especially if we are writing new songs it would be good to live in them a little onstage before we come to record anything. Whether the album is out first part of the year or spring we are not yet sure but we want to play out with new material to test it all out so expect a few more dates to be announced."
Awesome..... US dates are comin'! Full tour dates, most history and videos below.....

GB/CIV @ CBGB (more)
GB @ CBGB

I almost forgot to mention that that the special guests at the Black and Blue Ball happening at Studio B in Brooklyn this weekend are/were supposed to be CIV and Gorilla Biscuits.....which is probably a good thing becuse when I first saw it, tt was 100% confirmed in a Black n Blue Productions MySpace blog post, but that has since been deleted and Punk News is now reporting that Gorilla Biscuits are probably NOT playing. It is suspicious that the Black n Blue Ball still has Gorilla Biscuits listed as one of their top friends though. Either way, tix at the door (and Agnostic Front)
