it’s been brought to our attention that it’s test press friday. pictured is our record on actual vinyl, and the experience of unpackaging it / holding it / hearing it (it sounds amazing) is a dream i’m expecting to wake up from any minute. we couldn’t begin to dole out the thanks deserved to the scores of persons who made this record possible. to all involved (and to Flannel Gurl especially for bringing this stage to completion), we love you with all of us. sinai vessel is a band made possible by our community of friends, and we couldn’t be more humbled.
in the same vein, a tumblr post could *maybe* just scratch the iceberg we’ve to melt in extending gratitude to everyone on this past tour who booked us, put us up, bought merch, came to a show, took photographs or engaged with us as human beings in general. we met so many new friends and grew not only as a band, but as friends and people. sincere love to You’ll Live (who are in Japan currently!) for being some of our favorite people and bringing us along for the adventure. we’re pictured in Vegas above, $25 lighter than we were when we entered the city.
we’re taking a small break from shows to write, move and recuperate, but here are our next appearances for good measure:
on AUGUST 1, i (caleb) am playing a relatively rare SV acoustic set in support of The Collection and The Mailboxes at The Camp House in chattanooga. besides the fact that their bandleader produced all of our recorded output, the former released an insane new record that everyone should hear immediately. event: (http://on.fb.me/1kb3qxj)
on AUGUST 3, we’ve the honor of playing alongside empire! empire! (i was a lonely estate), Warren Franklin & the Founding Fathers, and local favorites Couches in charlotte at Area Fifteen. we adore playing this venue and it should be a perfect night like every other. attend or you’re stupid. it’s just the truth. event: (http://on.fb.me/1nkXMYn)
we love you.

Sinai Vessel @ Exponent Manor. July 11 2014
i haven’t posted anything other than band matters in a minute so here’s a recent picture of me
everything feels hollow and uncoupled and loose again and it’s for almost no reason at all
cycles of days like these make me yearn for normalcy. i honest to god hope to grow old and plain. monotony is better than being out of control to the point of seriously considering killing yourself every couple of weeks
"but she’s a handsome prize"
Sinai Vessel's profanity test presses arrived last week and well… They sound pretty great! Just curious, have we ever mentioned that mail days are the best days?
last night’s secret show in utah left nothing to be desired, and that’s not just because the practice space we played was no more than 100 square feet of horror movie set concrete. we’re forever indebted to Nora Dates for risking their lease to set up this adventure.
