So here we are safe and sound, home from tour. It's been a crazy year for all of us and thanks to everyone who helped make it that way. Also big ups to the JUNIUSguys. We spent the last 2 weeks of tour crammed on our bus with them, freezing, catching stomach flus, playing shows and just generally causing mayhem as the 9 of us crossed from Chicago down to North Carolina and then up the east coast.

Now we've all parted ways and we're catching up on rest for our 4th Annual Last Night on Earth Weekend. In case you haven't heard about it yet, here are the details:

DEC 30th @ The Middle East Downstairs in Cambridge MA

And if that's not enough...

DEC 31st @ 242 Main in Burlington VT
My Revenge
Brother Through Glass

After which we shall be celebrating the end of another year. After which we shall be recovering for a couple days. We're then taking a couple months to regain sanity and hopefully work on some new material.

We're headed back out on tour in March for SXSW and we've got some other pretty exciting news on the horizon. Keep your eyes out for live MP3s and lots of other goodies in the first few months of 2007. Happy Holly-daze from Constants and all that.

After having been on tour for 9 months this year we've managed to make some amazing friends. People have been asking us "so are you spending Thanksgiving at a homeless shelter?"

Today, we've been spending Thanksgiving with a friend's family in Great Falls, MT. We were invited over to his grandfather's house for dinner, and although we've never even met the man, we were welcomed - and fed - like family.

It's definately not easy to be away from the people we care about for as long as we have this year, but finding new and amazing people on the road is part of what this year-long journey has been about.

This year we give thanks to all the people that have helped us to accomplish our goals, and have taught us something about ourselves. Without the kindness, understanding and beer from amazing people like Doc, Roxy, Carson and everyone who has taken us in, fed us, and taken care of us, we wouldn't be the people we are today, and we certainly wouldn't be able to stay on the road this long. We've got 3 weeks left of tour this year, and it looks like we're going to make it. Thank you all and Happy Thanksgiving.

As we begin the final leg of our 10 month tour (only a month and a half left!) we're incredibly excited to say we will be joined by labelmates JUNIUS for the last three weeks of tour in December. Check for updated tour dates here.

Otherwise, we're taking 4 days off this week to make sure the bus is up to the task of another 2 months of driving (the answer being yes, she is), fixing gear, taking some naps and Duncan is still booking shows like an animal. Check the dates, if we aren't coming to your town, email us to help us something up.

We also just did some live recording with Dana from JUNIUS at RED 7 in Austin, TX. I should be able to edit that and post some MP3's soon. We'll also be doing more live recordings, including an in studio performance (hopefully some video as well) before the end of this tour, so stay tuned for all that.

Here's a couple awesome photos courtesy of Andrew Weiss:

You can see more from this show here.

Long time no update. Sorry. Believe it or not we're still on tour...and will be until the end of the year. But thing are going pretty well. Thanks to all our friends in the Northwest for taking such good care of us. We'll be back up there next month and we miss you already.

We just got a great writeup in Portland. You can read it here.

Other than that, the bus is running well, the shows have been good and we're gearing up for the fourth annual Last Night On Earth weekend (New Years). Radar is getting ready to announce this years headlining act, and we're all really excited about it. Should be a good time.

This is what happens when we have the day off. Thanks for the beahs Kristin.

July 26, 2006

Here we are in Salt Lake City UT. We've got a couple shows left before we head down to southern California to begin writing our next record. We're taking about 4 weeks off from tour, and hopefully we'll walk out of these sessions with a blueprint for the future of our music. If nothing else we should have a demo or two that I'll be sure to post online. Then we're back on the road until December. We've got a couple new tshirt designs, new stickers and we're looking forward to touring in some nice autumn weather.

Also, we have a new webpage. We're psyched on it, so check it out.

June 30, 2006

We were just featured on the news in Shreveport, LA!! Coincidentally that is where are are headed today to play with BRAZIL and STATUES CRY BLEEDING. We are pysched.

WATCH US ON THE NEWS HERE (Be patient it takes a while to load).

This is where fuel comes from.
After the first two and a half months of our 10 month tour, we've all taken the past 2 weeks off to enjoy the fruits of our labor and individually cause havoc all across North America.

But now, we're back to business.

CONSTANTS is headed out for another month, this time across the south followed 3 weeks up and down the west coast. We've still got our giant bus, we're still playing epic space rock and we've accumulated more tattoos, more tequila, more black clothing - and though we've lost a bit of facial hair, we are very much ready to bring the rock.

Below are tourdates, so come out. If it says TBA in your hometown and you'd like to see us play, throw a party in your basement and we'll come play it. For show updates, click here.

Orion was just complaining that I haven't updated our blog in a while, and I guess he's right, so here we go.

Today is Duncan's 23rd birthday and so far we've celebrated by seing Xmen 3, sippin some fine single barrel whiskey and enjoying the air conditioning in the finest mall in Dallas TX.

We're about a week away from wrapping up the first 2 months of our year long tour. A couple of days ago we kidnapped our friend Joel (INFINITE DIVISION/ STATUES CRY BLEEDING), and we've been having a great time.

We finally got a good review from our hometown too. Check out the Northeast Performer

We also got our first bad review here.

Here we are in El Paso TX. We're really just getting warmed up playing shows, but it feels great to be back on tour, out on the road, seeing friends and making new ones. We're definately still learning the ins and outs of living in and maintaining the bus, so if we ever decide to stop playing music, I'm pretty sure we could all enjoy decent careers as bus mechanics.

The shows have been going well and we're psyched to finally be enjoying some warm weather. We've been playing some new material as well....I'd say about 10 minutes worth. Plus we've been getting compared to Neurosis more, which I personally think is cool. (I think it's because of Duncan's light show).

That's it for now.

"Ambient post-rocker’s Constants have gutted a 66 passenger school bus and converted it to run on vegetable oil. The group has installed beds, a full kitchen and living area in the bus and are currently touring across the country in an environmentally sustainable vehicle and spreading the word of its benefits.

March 17, 2006

We've spent the last week or so busting our asses getting ready to leave for tour; we bought a school bus and have converted it to run on vegetable oil. The process, along with other complications have forced us to cancel the first few dates of this tour. We apoligize that we aren't going to get to see all our friends in the southeast, but we promise that we'll be back around before you even have time to miss us.

On a brighter note, the bus looks great. It runs on veggie oil, has a couch, table, kitchen and beds, so we are seriously going to be touring for eternity. I'll be sure to post some pictures as soon as we're done working 15 hour days trying to finish work on it... We're also psyched to be bringing out Jon Hassell (of SENECA) as our touring guitar player.

And even better news, "The Murder of Tom Fitzgerril" was named album of the month by Read the full article here.

More good news for our new record - "The Murder of Tom Fitzgerril" is #11 on the March Noise Magazine Top 30 Chart (Reporting stations: WAAF, WBCN, WFNX, WMBR, WMFO, WTCC). And here we thought Stairway to Heaven was the only song longer than 5 minutes on the radio....

Another review up at Wrank Music.

February 14, 2006

We just got our first review for our new EP by Deafening Sound. You can read it here.
Our new record is now available directly from our label RADAR RECORDINGS with full packaging and metallic ink.


We are currently going through the process of rebuilding our webpage, but we wanted to have some way to communicate with the world while doing so. So this is what we came up with.

We're in the process of buying and modifying a school bus into a bio-diesel. TRANSLATION: for our next 3 month plus national tour we will be zipping around America in a vegetable oil fueled Deathstar. Environmentally friendly, and we no longer have to rely on political administrations and the outcome of wars across the globe to determine how much money we have to spend in order to get from venue to venue. We're really excited.
