We have been on tour with The Agonist and let me tell you, if you like metal and haven’t seen these guys (and gal) play live, you really need to check them out. The black-hearted singer, Alissa, is not only vegan, she speaks out for animals every chance she can get. She asked peta2 to come out on tour with her to get people to sign our petition to help improve the conditions for chickens in slaughterhouses.

The Agonist’s video “Business Suits and Combat Boots” has also been nominated for the best music video of 2007 on Head Bangers Ball. Make sure you help them out and vote for them.

While on tour we stopped by Chicago and met up with Jason and Loyd who have been following Ringling Bros. Circus, letting people know how they beat their animals to make them perform stupid tricks.

Most of you don’t know this, but I’m pretty much obsessed with pirates and while in Portland, OR, we came across the best place I’ve ever seen by far.

Pirate’s Tavern is an all-vegan pirate tavern. They have everything from fake fish sandwiches to vegan chili cheese fries.

So, make sure you check out The Agonist and if you can, please come out to a show and say Ahoy!
