Change A Life Uganda Documentary

We’re excited to announce that our buddy, Brad Patocka, will be volunteering his time and heading to Uganda to shoot a documentary to help promote an organization called Change A Life Uganda (CALU). CALU has been building schools and helping to educate children in Uganda since 2007.

Brad is the amazing videographer that shot the in-studio footage for our Making The EP: The Places We Leave Behind video (see below). He and his partner, Molly Petrie, are the perfect duo for this job. You can help them make this important documentary by donating to their campaign. To find out more information, and help support a great cause, please visit their campaign page here.

Goodbye 2013 (behind-the-scenes video)

Hey friends! Josh here. It’s that time again for the obligatory blog recapping the year. Many of you have been loyal fans of ours for years, so you already know the awesomeness that was 2013. So I won’t get into all of that here. But for our new fans, and those who’d like to take a trip down memory lane; I’ve been sharing our favorite 2013 memories on twitter using #TAL2013. Feel free to click on the hashtag to relive all the awesome moments. You can also tell us your favorite 2013 memories using that hashtag, and I’ll share some of them on the band’s twitter.

I do want to take this time to sincerely thank you for a great year. I know it sounds cliche, and we say it all the time, but it’s because we truly mean it. Without you, there’s no us. 2013 was a great year for TAL, and it’s because you’ve been there for us. All the shows, the new music, videos, fun times.. we do it for you. And you love and appreciate it, just as we love and appreciate you.

One of our biggest accomplishments of 2013 was the release of our new EP, “The Places We Leave Behind”. As a thank you, we’re giving you the entire EP for FREE on Facebook. I also put together a behind-the-scenes video, giving you a look into the making of our new EP. The video was shot by Brad Patocka, with commentary by Thor and myself. Be sure to check it out below.

Thank you for another badass year!! I hope your year was just as amazing. And I’m most definitely looking forward to an even better 2014!

On behalf of TAL.. Much love!

– Josh
