Feb. 19 |  HELLO KINGDOM OF THE UNITED!

boomtownAfter spending way too much time holding a grudge against you for subjecting us to excessive coverage of your silly little royal wedding, we’ve decided to make a move to get back on speaking terms with you, our cutely-accented counterparts across the lake. This move is in no small part due to your introducing us to the incredible Charlie Brooker, and let’s not forget your gracious and self-sacrificial harboring of Madonna, fake accent and all. So we figure the score is 2-1, and we owe you one. We’d like to pay up in the form of a concert on your continent! Namely, we’ll be coming on by to play at your lovely and awesomely-named BOOMTOWN FESTIVAL! HURRAH!
It’s been a long while since we’ve played anywhere in England, and we have no idea when we’ll be back, so how about you all meet us at BoomTown sometime around, oh, I don’t know, August 15, 2015? Sounds good? Good! Head on over to www.boomtownfair.co.uk or https://www.facebook.com/boomtownfair1 for more info and to buy tickets! IT’S TEA TIME, SON.

Nov. 6 |  Once More Into The Fray Micro-Tour Wrap Up

omitfwebpostnews
We made it! Six huge shows! Six awesome nights in the Northeast US and Canada. 5 Sold out shows! Much good times had! Yelling in short bursts! Word words words! So we survived our little concert run of 2014 and we’d like to once again thank you all for coming out to rock with us. Each and every night was incredible and each and every night was a reminder of how lucky we are to be able to bring our music to all of you. We’re currently planning our 2015 and hopefully we can fulfill some of the requests you’ve made of us. There are now a lot of ins and a lot of outs when it comes to playing/touring but we’re hoping to deliver in quality what we cannot deliver in quantity. So, once more, THANK YOU ALL SO VERY MUCH. For coming out, for singing, for dancing, for enjoying the concerts with us. We hope to see you all again, and soon!

Oct. 2 |  HOLY SUPER-DUPER SALE, AFFLECK!

It’s a slow news day, which could mean one of one things: time for a giant merch sale! For one week, starting right now, you can buy anything in our merch store for a whole damn third off. A WHOLE THIRD (ok, technically it’s .333333etc short of a third but we’re not nerds are we?*) 33%!

Head on over to www.riscstore.com, throw anything you want into your shopping cart and use the code “FALL2014″ at checkout. Easy peasy.

Also of note: many of the designs in the store are going the way of the dinosaur (i.e. will be appearing as mechanized versions of themselves in a Michael Bay movie) as soon as they are out of stock so now is the time to get them. Unless you only wear the most recent SM swag, you hipster you. Or, wait, hipsters love the vintage stuff, don’t they… I CAN’T KEEP UP WITH THIS CRAP.

Buy stuff if you want, support the band, or don’t, and indirectly support terrorism. Your choice. DON’T EFF IT UP.

*we are in fact nerds 8-(
