Sad as it is to say, last week we had to say goodbye to the amazing Rise Against tour and all of the awesome bands on it. But not to anyone’s surprise, the Rise guys showed their notorious support for peta2 and animals to the very end with shout outs and Joe, their bassist, even wearing one of our peta2 shirts on stage in Buffalo, NY!


As they headed out to do big things overseas, we left to start a more cozy, intimate trip across the US with infamous animal lovers, Cobra Starship. One of my favorite things about this band is how much they love their fans. They intentionally booked small venues for this tour so that they could be closer to their fans when on stage, and have time to talk to each and every one of them after the show. How sweet! It works out perfect for us as well. We can honestly say that we have had conversations with every single person at each show so far about the hideous product testing methods that major cosmetic and household product companies are still using to torture animals.


Even better: Our stickers go so well with Cobra Starship merch—it’s like we planned it.


And I’m not the only one with news from the road—Paige has been up to some interesting things as well …

This week we hit up a few more 10 for 10 shows and Rock the Bells in Vancouver (featuring rapper Murs). There has been an overwhelmingly great response to our McCruelty campaign, in which we are demanding that McDonald’s suppliers end their malicious treatment of chickens. These very social birds are being tormented and hung from shackles while their throats are slit, all while conscious.

Billy and Alicia must have talked to thousands of people last week who agreed that cruelty to animals is wrong!


We’re also welcoming back Daniel to our outreach team! He was just in South America with his band, Die Young.


Keep on the lookout for us this week on 10 for 10, Rock the Bells, Cobra Starship, and Warped Tour!!!

See you soon,

Heather and Paige

    Born and bred in Britain. I've always lived with animals and loved finding out new information/ caring about them. I currently do eat meat although I am not a huge lover and I do intend on going vegetarian when I'm older. I've always wanted to support charities and I am the head fund raiser at my school. I am looking forward to supporting Peta and becoming a member of their Street Team!

    I am 13 years old and joined the street team June 2015. I am a vegetarian. I have a passion for working to help save animals. I love my family and my 2 pugs, Daisy and Diesel. I plan to work for Peta or Mercy For Animals someday because they helped me become a vegetarian and begin a whole new life of having common sense towards all animals.
