Well here’s a bad news for everyone who ordered a signed vinyl and other goodies from the PledgeMusic campaign 2 years ago. Apparently the previous AAF management listed many items that no longer exist and won’t be sent to the pledgers at all.
They will naturally get their money back but it’s not really nice at this point. Random people kept asking me from time to time “where is my pledge stuff?”, “when will I get my package?” and all I could say was “no idea”. At least right now we know.
Terry took the time to have a little talk with me which was really cool of him. Exciting times for Ant farm fans!

Terry how’s it going?! Thanks for doing this small exclusive for ant fans! Everyone knows you are prob super busy so thanks for taking the time out to do this..Everyone is proper psyched for this tour with hed pe and the upcoming tour in the Uk with P.O.D and hoobastank. The new album has been in the making for what seems like a lifetime (but worth the wait by all means) Was the process in making these tours happen as difficult as the making of the album?
These tours actually came outta nowhere but we did need the record to be out in order for things to make sense on the road again. It would have been hard to come through some of these venues again without released new music. I would have felt like more of a bastard than I already do about the delay of this record. Also, all these bands we are on or will be on tour with are old old friends that grew up together on the same Southern California stages for years now. Also we’ve all done many festivals together throughout the years. We’re all homies.
You shouldn’t feel like that Terry, honestly. I think I can speak on behalf of everyone that loves this band and say that a) it’s not your guys fault and everyone understands and b) it’s been worth the wait! The album is seriously awesome. It’s out now and what a relief it must be … what better way to promote “Always and Forever” than by spending it with your pals and touring around with old friends. It sounds amazing and I for sure can not wait for the tour in May. Which brings me to the subject of gigs. You’re playing a host of dates across the UK in May and the first night is at Koko, London. Are there any plans to reach out further than the UK in the promotion for the new album?
There were talks about the Hooba POD tour going over to Europe if it proves to be excitable enough. If that doesn’t go over, Im sure we will at some point. We are going to Korea in July for the troops then it would be awesome to hopefully make it to Australia and New Zealand. We’ll go wherever but we cant wait to get to the next record.
Man that sounds amazing. The tour has sold out at around 4 locations across the UK. I wasn’t quick enough to get additional tickets on top of London but I know for sure this tour is going to be amazing. The troops are in for a treat and so are we over in the UK everyone’s looking forward to this and I can’t wait to be apart of this much anticipated opening night at koKO. See you there man!
Hey everyone! The tour is in full swing and below is a video taken by our good friend Ray Tuthill. The video is from their show on the 28th of March @ Tubby’s club in Duncannon Pennsylvania. According to Ray the show was a near sell out and the guys put on an awesome show! If you attend any shows Please share any pictures or videos!
Kyle’s favorite song. First time seeing it live. His earplugs kept falling out, so he had to hold them. Also in this video, Timmy Pee shows off his bass players aerobics workout.
The guys kick off their 4 week tour this Thursday (26th) with the amazing (HED)P.E. The tour listing is pictured below! The guys will then follow with their much ANTicipated UK tour in May with Hoobastank and P.O.D. Until then over the next 4 weeks we will be posting updates of the tour with (HED)P.E. We want to see your Videos and pictures! So share them with us on facebook, twitter or Google+
Ant fans exclusive interview with Terry coming soon!!
You might have noticed that the final mix of the CD contains the wrong version of the single Let Em’ Know. The good version of the track is available for download on our SoundCloud and it was mixed by Jay Baumgardner. The version on the CD was mixed by Johnny K and it sounds a lot worse than the earlier mix to be honest – you can hear the same mix on E.P. Phone Home on PledgeMusic where they’ve posted a couple of tracks of the new album and demos before the proper release.
Too bad because the booklet on the CD states that it was mixed by Jay B.
You can compare the mixes on your own by downloading the Johnny K mix from here.
If you got the album online (or stream it on Spotify) you have the right mix though.
