The end is nigh upon us.

As many of you already know, Bear Vs. Shark has decided that it's best that we be smart and call it quits after deciding that each and every one of us has too many individual idiosynracies to count that each clash with as least one or two of other people's in the band. Some people just felt that it was time to disband and proceed to the next calling in their lives.

We had a good tyme together and sincerely appreciate all the support you all have given us over the years. I don't think when we formed the band that any of us ever thought we'd get this far along and have two full-length records to show for it. I've now been to 47 States and met a ton of wonderful people who fed us, gave us beds and floors to sleep on, and helped restore my faith in humanity.

It is, however, time to move on. We didn't want to beat a dead horse, or squeeze blood from our stone. I mean, the grass Is always greener, but they do say that when one door closes another one opens.

Keep your eye out for us; I'm sure everyone we'll be getting into something else good really soon.

Hey everyone! We are finally back home for a few weeks and VERY excited about that. We are sad, however, to have ended Dudestorm; it seems as if it had just begun. This tour was probably the best tour we've had so far, and we feel incredibly greatful for having fans like you guys that continue to support us! Plus, all the bands on the tour we're so great musically and dudeally. The dudeability was at a 10, and Fear Before should feel like wise sages for predicting a totally dudebro tour. The only down sides of the tour were the hurricane, and that Since By Man had to drop off the tou due to sickness towards the end. We missed those guys incredibly, but are planning another something in the spring with them... keep your eyes open for that.

Also, if you haven't noticed, we have new tour dates up for late Novemeber. We'll be heading down to Gainesville and back and then out east to finish up the tour. It's with the Tight Phantomz and the Esoteric and should be great. And guess what?! We are playing NYC on Nov. 26th at the Knitting Factory. If you're coming to that show or the Philly show, we recommend you get your tickets asap, because we're expecting a good turnout.

For December, we are going to be playing a few shows in Michigan, so far Lansing on the 8th, and Traverse City on the 9th. Both of these shows are with Ari Ari (Friction Records) a very good band from Indiana. Hope to see you all soon!

We had to cancel both our shows on 10/22 in Florida (St. Petersburg and Tampa in-store) because there is this crazy massive hurricane that's heading that way.

Hope everyone who was planning on coming out stays safe and can catch us next time.

So we are on tour right now, and it's going well! All the bands are really the tops. Just wanted to let you all know that are going to be doing an instore performance at the Tampa Vinyl Fever record store the day of our St. Pete show. To check it out, go to this link:

That's it! We're just keeping busy, eating food, you know.

Hey everyone! We are leaving for tour this weekend and will be traveling throughout the US for over a month. We will cross mountains, steppes, plateus, marsh, lakes, rivers, estuaries, tributaries, monkeys, and air. Some of us may get sick, some of us may not. It will be fun sometimes, and sometimes it will not be. It will be hard at times. That's why we need to see your faces! Come to our shows, and cheer us up if we need it. Or just bring us a sandwich and a Fanta.

Also, thanks to everyone for replying to the request for street team affiliates. The response has been overwhelming, and we're slowly sorting through the members to make sure we have everything straight.

Also, to all you message board people, we don't hate Canada, we were just there. We do not enjoy customs very much or the taxes we have to pay to get into the country. We actually love hockey as much as you damned Canucks. Curling however... that's another story.

And for those of you who want to write something about Mike being a terrorist, don't. Instead, go outside or look up porn.

A quick reminder to everyone that we are having a show Friday (9/16) at the Blind Pig in Ann Arbor. It's with our good friends in Fire When Ready who are coming all the way from Binghamton, NY to play the show. Also playing is Detroit's Holy Fire, and Russian Circles (Jade Tree) from Chicago. So it's going to be an awesome show, unless you'r under 18. Then you can't go and then it's not too awesome. Chastise your parents for not making sweet, sweet parent love earlier.

On the 27th, we are playing with Hella in Lansing at Mac's. Then we are playing Grand Rapids on the 2nd of Oct., to begin our fall tour. Hope to see you at a show!

Well, we are finally back home in Michigan after being away almost all of the summer on tour. Thanks to everyone for coming out and seeing us, we really appreciate your support! We have a few shows coming up in the month of September; one in Cleveland, one in Ann Arbor, and one in Lansing. After that, we are leaving in early October for another U.S. tour which we are really excited about. We are currently working on a video, a new website, and also writing some new material so don't think we are getting lazy on you!

Hello again from the road. We are in Indiana right now about to head to Dekalb. Just wanted to point out two things; first off, we have a new fall tour posted with Fear Before The March of Flames, Since By Man, and Fall of Troy. It will be awesome and hit alot of places in the USA. Sorry if we don't hit somewhere near you, but Fear Before is booking the tour so send them an angry email about it. We are merely the tour leeches and will follow them like loyal cubs. Secondly, most of the lyrics have been posted by fans on our message board, so check them out if you're interested.

Thanks for showing your support by coming out to the shows, sending us emails, calling Mike a terrorist on the message board, and being on our street team. We appreciate it more than words can describe. Also wanted to mention that the street team is pretty full right now, but we'll be adding some more members later on. Hope you have enjoyed our shows so far! Oh and if you have live pics, send them over.

Hey there. This update is being done on our phone in the van. We have officially stepped into the '90s. Tour is great, more shows being added daily. This is hard to do in the van. More later...

Couple of show changes for you all.

Tonight our show in Louisville got cancelled, then moved to Cincinnati. Sorry for the short notice.

Also, we got added to this crazy, extremely extreme, "Xtreme Challenge" in Pontiac, Michigan this Sunday. There is going to be some basketball, some skateboarding, some paintball, and some music, so if you're in the area come and hang out.
