"electronic saviors" benefit comp

the chinese theatre remix of "duct tape my heart" is included on "electronic saviors: industrial music to cure cancer", a massive 4-disc compilation! released today on metropolis records, this 83-track collection is to benefit the foundation for cancer research and wellness.

we're definitely wayyy on the softer/poppier side than most of the other bands featured, but we were psyched to be included. here's an interview with promoter Jim Semonik, who put it all together:

and here's more info about the compilation:

Pocket Zombie!

So we've had songs in video games before... but now i'm actually IN a video game! or my zombie alter-ego is, anyway. Go check out this nifty lil' iPhone game, Pocket Zombie! they just released their Zombie Girlfriend Charity Pack featuring me, IGN's Jessica Chobot, Destructoid's Chad Concelmo, and Game Informer's Meagan VanBurkleo. We all chose charities to donate to (mine is the Humane Society) because zombies sometimes get a bad rap, what with all that terrorizing and brain-eating.

hey, bostonians! one more reminder!

TONIGHT! we are very excited for this...

Friday, December 11 - at the Middle East downstairs, 480 Mass Ave, Cambridge. With our wonderful pals Plushgun, Televandals, and the Appreciation Post! This show will be the debut of our new lineup!
