It has been a hell of a journey up to this point, and for those of you that do not follow facebook, because you are beyond the matrix, have probably been in the dark for quite some time about what is happening in the realm of [product]. Let’s get you up to speed.
I have crossed over fully and am now paying for things - dear god right, what would Karl Marx think?
There is an advertising campaign in affect now! I have paid for advertisement on COMA Music Magazine! I have purchased some more than amazing professional artwork from KALLISTI:DESIGNS, which I am extremely happy with.
I, Omega is going to be physically released through COP INTERNATIONAL, and is going to also be available digitally in both America and Germany! This is awesome news because they were considering not releasing it at all! But thanks to you all, and all of your support on the road and in the battlefields of the internet, it will be so!
I am in negotiation now to play some shows at the end of August in Chicago! which will be [product]’s first time in the midwest! So tell your friends there.

I’ve been back from tour for a couple of days now and it has been some of the sickest days in some time. I came down with the death cold swiftly upon entering Utah (surprised? I’m not - that place haunts me still.) I apologize for not updating promptly, I’m just now grasping the reality around me.
The Infiltration Tour 2012 with 357 and reakt[ion] was amazing. All three shows went off really well for [product] and we were happy to present some new material and an extended set to accepting audiences. I could go through a play by play of the entire tour, but that would take too long. instead I will one day compile all of the #shitwesaid on tour tweets into a list. Today is not that day however, the sun is out in Portland, and you know what that means, we have to get the fuck out of the house while we can because it’s going to be gone for 9 months in a couple of days! Get that Vitamin D on.
Seattle was a great time. We played at The Highline, which was an awesome vegan cafe/bar. The light show and sound was amazing. Seattle audiences are a little weird, they dont really come out to the stage to great you like they should, so I took it upon myself to go the fuck to them and pull up a chair. Dont worry, I’ll come to you to spread my hate.
Boise was also a great show. The crowd was much smaller, due to some unfortunate scheduling conflicts, however the few people that were there had amazing energy! (and that is more fun than 1000 people sitting down.) We spend the next day in Boise, burning down the city portland style (going to the mall, the CD/book/coffee shop, and the local metal pizza joint!) There are no subcultures in Boise… Only bros. I’ve deemed this scientific law. Subculture only exists at the Red Room, which we discovered too goddamn late.
Onward to the land of Zion! I wish we would have had more time in SLC, it was a beautiful and warm city! I was pleasantly surprised. We took a walking detour through shanty town due to some local expertise being dead wrong, but that was fun. [product] is always up for some hobostabbin’. The show was amazing! Again, not that many people, but really really high energy! The night started off with some sound issues, but worked out by the time [product] went on, due to some finaggling on our part. I again took it upon myself to go to the crowd (which happened to be outside the venue smoking) and yell the lyrics at them :) You cant escape it, I dont play that shit.
I would like to thank Ali (tour manager/Mechanismus), Ginger (promoter/Boise), and Aaron (promoter/SLC) for making it all possible! I would also like to that all of the members of 357 and reakt[ion] and my own crew for enduring my XVX lifestyle on tour and me grumpy! It was a lot of fun and we hope to do it again soon.
