show numero uno. [event]
yo! caleb is now booking shows at his house in Cleveland, TN (greater Chattanooga) in an attempt to relieve the massive debt of kindness and favors so many humans have showed our band over the years. if you’re in the area (or not!) toss us a like on facebook and start participating in this brand-new community.
serendipitous-rocketship said: So I walk into Krankies coffee in Winston Salem, NC with my Sinai Vessel shirt on and the girl behind the counter said, "You know Sinai Vessel?" and of course I do, why else would I be wearing this and we became good friends and have decided that you should totally play here, at Krankies coffee.
that’s rad / surreal. the fact that our output could be the initial common ground for a friendship is incredible. the fact that this happened in north carolina is also wonderful—we struggled to find our footing in our home state for a long time, so it comes as somewhat of a relief to discover that stories like this are becoming more and more commonplace.
i’ve heard krankies is lovely. we’ve never played explicitly within w-s, so we’ll place it at the top of our to-dos.
Now available to order: Sinai Vessel’s 2nd edition of “Profanity” on tape! This is a split release with Ozona Records.
Sinai Vessel is a three-piece emo band from North Carolina. Describing themselves as “punk for sissies”, harsher vocals mix with melodic instrumentals to create a unique sound. Differing from the more refined vocals in previous releases, “Profanity” creates a good middle ground between punk and pop influences.
FFO: Weatherbox; You Blew It; Mansions
all copies will be split randomly between the two available covers

using a word derived from Sister negatively is alienating our sisters
not used negatively. it’s a reappropriation—see: one paragraph below the line you borrowed from the wikipedia article. additionally, the wonderful human that first bestowed this term upon us is a queer feminist. we sincerely appreciate you and anyone else who takes the time to alert us of something potentially problematic, but taking up that matter with the party concerned directly is always a better route than assumption without context. we love you and we mean no harm.

rough night for me (caleb), so excuse the tuning malfunction. everyone in denver was so, so unbelievably kind and supportive on this night regardless of the fact that i was less than deserving. humans are lovely, and i was so humbled / grateful for the response we received. much love.
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.
