It’s been awhile. I’m glad you all made it out alive.
Let’s begin our discussion with the Merch.
Number one// We just got our split 7inches with Ocksen in the mail today. Currently working on screen-printing hella covers, will be officially out and ready for trades within the week.
Number Two// “Exclusive” Wake The Machines shirts, only available at:
10 Bucks a pop.
Long story short, we have a lot of sick projects in the air because we owe alot of money on alot of shit, so buy some shit, so we can put out more shit. Which brings me to my next point.
We are hitting the studio on December 20th and again in early Jan. to record for our split with Actuary, among a few others. These will be our first recordings with our new 2nd guitarist J. Just wait, you’re all fucked.
Splits w/ Lunge, The Communion, +HIRS+, Total Hipster Crusher, Gorgonized Dorks, Six Brew Bantha, Lt. Dan, and Maximum Thrash also in the works.

It’s been awhile. I’m glad you all made it out alive.
The year, 2011 AD and three quarters. Several years after the great Grind War. Somehow, the posers were able to overtake the Bay Area. All hope was assumed to be lost. Until, in the distance of the long black night, shone the tip of a fat joint. Creeping out from the depths of disgust, from where the dust roams, a figure starts to materialize. Could it be? No…
It is! It’s J the fucking joint. Long story short, this guy is your new hero. He plays 2nd chair guitar in Wake The Machines now. He’s pretty much always been behind us, pushing for us, endlessly supporting us and passing us joints, except pep. So it only felt right to close off our first year as a band by adding him to the line up. It’s just not too often you find another real grinder in Concord and we’ve chosen to capitalize on it. So here’s to J the Joint and another year of noise!
P.S. writing lots of new shit.
L.A. was pretty sick. Stayed at Danzig’s bodygaurd’s house. Smoked some Cypress Hill weed. Fucked shit up pretty hard, got a good portion of it on film. I’m sure that will surface at some point or another.
Oh and also, our good friends Macula, fucking noize-violence from Arcata, got added to this killer show in CONCORD with fucking GODSTOMPER.
That will be all.
(INFORMATION SUBJECT TO CHANGE)
So we are heading down to L.A. to play a few shows. We’re bring along our hometown buddies Hose Beast & Striations, with plans to keep it concord as fuck.
We’ll have some crap for sale, but I would count on us being largely unprepared to meet your needs. So anyways, WEED TRIALS III.
Fucking striations is playing this too! It’s gonna be a fucking party. Our good friend JTHEJOINT is turing 29 and we are gonna fucking party, hard. ETC.
GODSTOMPER IN CONCORD??
Ya. 21+ up though.
So anyways, we are writing a bunch of fucking shit. Splits with ACTUARY, LUNGE AND SIX BREW BANTHA. Plus still a whole bunch of shit that we still need to release but haven’t because we are broke. ETC.
Also, we made a bunch of demos. If you want one:
Send us a few bucks to cover postage and it’s all you, man.
Tour was pretty cool. Here are some of my favorite pictures…
P.S. we have some leftover split tour tapes (and cds!) with morose for sale. (Leftover tour edition split 7”s with Ocksen too!)
There it is. That’s what we are up to.
+ Wednesday April 6th, we are recording for our split tape with Morose, for our tour with Morose. Jef Leopard will be recording us again. He rules.
++ We will also have Tour Editions of our splits with Agathocles and Ocksen available for conversion into gasoline, so you know, buy.
+++ Wake The Machines and KittenDonkeyPunch are heading down to L.A. the first weekend of July. So look out for that or whatever, I guess.
++++ VENUE CHANGE FOR ANAL CUNT SHOW. It’s now at the Oakland Metro. Here’s a flier:
Fuck you, Get into it.
More info on anything stated above: email@example.com
Hello, J here to let you guys in on some shit. First of all we just recorded for a bunch of fucking splits with Jeff Leopard. Dude fucking rules at making us sound presentable. So we have a split 7” w/ Ocksen (UK) about to be sent off to the pressing plant.
Hopefully in time for their tour across Europe! Check these dudes out here:
We also record for our split with Agathocles… But more on that on later.
Tracks from both releases will be made available for streaming on our website (sites.google.com/site/wakethemachines) within the week. That’s how much we like you guys, super unreleased shit man. LOTS of other shit in the works too! Like splits with fucking ACTUARY, LUNGE, + MAXIMUM THRASH just to name a few.
