Just in time for Christmas is the repressing of 2009’s Tragic Boogie on 180 gram black wax and it sounds amazing. recorded by Eric and Allen, then mixed by Jason Livermore at the Blasting Room in Ft Collins CO, this kitchen-sink colossal was a new high-water mark for us as a band and still stands the test of time. please go HERE and get your very own copy.

there’s a wise old adage that says “never play in Florida”. but here at TLAT HQ, we brazenly throw the baby out with the bathwater and spit straight into the wind of logic and will proudly follow any fool off of any cliff. with that said, we’re really excited to announce these dates that cover Florida and much of the Beautiful South. please turn to page 436 in your hymnals and join us in singing “How Great Thou Art” while flying off said cliff. Amen.
