The summer is finally all done and I am sure you are all just as bummed as we are that it went by soo ridiculously fast. Warped Tour and the What Happens In Vegas tour were both incredible and I am sad that its all over. We made so many new friends on both tours and I am going to miss band summer camp on Warped so much. BBQs for life! Thank you to everyone who came out to either tour and partied with us every night. I couldn’t imagine a better way to spend a summer than playing for you guys each night and hanging after with all of you and the bands. I can’t wait for next summer haha!
We threw together a quick little two part video of just some of the craziness that went down this summer! Big shout out to our boys in Pretty Ricky, check them out at prettyricky.com. Here is the first part… and make sure you watch the whole thing for a little surprise at the end:
The Greatest Summer Ever (PART 1)

So some of you might have heard the news already but due to circumstances that are out of our control, we have had to drop off the rest of the Rockin Rodeo Tour along with FTSK and The Friday Night Boys. We are extremely bummed out about it and we promise that we will make it up to everyone who planned on coming to the show. Check with the venue of the show to see if the show is still going on with White Tie Affair and Kelsey and The Chaos. If it is, we suggest you go and hang out because both bands are amazing and they are great people too. If not, you should be available to get your ticket refunded.
As for us, we are at home now just hanging out. We will be heading out in about a month for the 2009 Vans Warped Tour so if we are coming through your area, please come and hang out with us all day!
Sorry once again, We love you all so much!A Rocket to the Moon
We started our first day of the Rockin Rodeo tour yesterday in Madison, Wisconsin with Forever the Sickest Kids, The White Tie Affair, Cash Cash, and The Friday Night Boys! The first day was awesome, I have never been to Madison before but I was more than happy with my first experience. Everyone was super nice to us and it was great talking to all of you that came and said hello!

So as you all know the AP tour has finally come to an end. We are all sad that it is over with but so extremely happy with how the whole tour turned out. We could not have asked for anything better, every single person on the tour was awesome and it was great to see our old friends and to make some great new ones. Also, thank you to every single person who had the chance to make it to one of the shows. Every night was a blast playing for all of you and you guys made every show amazing for us.
