I play drums in Touche Amore and DNF
and I make Dad Punchers songs

pukesmoothie asked: Is the piano bit you guys played in the middle of your set from anywhere? Dying to hear it again.

That piano bit was something I wrote and recorded based on some of chords that are in “Harbor.” I spent a bunch of time at the piano trying to figure out a nice prelude to the song. I tracked it and bounced it down for use on our in between song looper. There are no plans to release it at this time.

Anonymous asked: Why Warm Thoughts now?

Because:

here’s the first of many “official statements” over the next couple months.

Dad Punchers moniker is no mas. From here on out, it’s just “Warm Thoughts”

I have had such an incredible summer with these people and am very sad to see this tour come to an end. Proud to call these people close friends.

Playing a place in Milwaukee tonight that is apparently very haunted and where multiple people have died in the basement swimming pool, and where Jeffrey Dahmer used to pick up people and take them across the street to the Ambassador hotel and eat them. Here we gooooo….

Anonymous asked: Could you see yourself living anywhere other than LA?

Ohhhhhh god yes. I think LA is a miserable place, but since I haven’t been home longer than a span of 4 continuous months in the past 5 years, it’s just kinda become home by default since it’s where my bandmates live. It’s too fast paced, you have to sit in two hours of traffic to get anywhere, things are too spread out to reasonably use public transit, and there are lots of terrible attitudes. I try to “rediscover” and make the best of it everytime I come home but I find myself discouraged by this stuff.

I don’t know why, but I think I’ll end up in the south at some point. Savanna, Georgia seems nice! Maybe North Carolina? Warm weather and beaches with a slower pace and natural beauty, that’s my thaaang
