Hey everyone. So after much thought and consideration, I have decided to open my own business this spring! Please, I need all the support I can get! I'm hoping to make enough money doing this out of my house for the first year that summer 2015 I can rent a space in town and open a real shop! I'm not open yet, but am taking ~DISCOUNTED~ pre-orders! It's custom metal work! Check out the page below for more details.
Also, I know most of you on VF are far away and not in my area. NEVER FEAR! I do orders globally, but do charge extra for shipping. My eBay page will be listed below as well. Thanks for you're support!
I'm making it a point to try to record or write something new every day. It's been a long time since I've had the will to live for me, and I've lost a lot these past few years. It's like starting again from nothing. And I've done it multiple times, but this has been the hardest. I'll be playing some low key spots the next few weeks gathering my strength and my abilities again. This year will be the culmination of a lot of shit. I hope you enjoy it.
All Ingiegogo pre-sales over $20 will receive a discount voucher from Angelspit's webstore. This discount will work on CDs, Merch, Jewelry, NEW Tshirts, NEW posters and additional content for the USB Drives.
We will have pre-sales delivered to you late March....BE READY TO ROCK!

In a world of untrustworthy people, and especially on a website full of drama and people who blow things out of proportion, you really should consider getting your facts straight before you judge someone. People who talk shit about me, that doesn't bother me, if they want to blow things out of proportion, exaggerate or even just make shit up, that does nothing but prove their own idiocy, what DOES bother me is when my "friends" believe the shit without even asking to hear my side of things. Here's a rule of thumb I follow: Someone says someone that I know did or said something, I get both sides of the story before I make any kind of call on who is bull shitting and who isn't.
On a personal note, THANK YOU FOR THE INSPIRATION AND ENCOURAGEMENT!
I have posted many questions on Angelspit's FB - and have welcomed your opinions and thoughts. The lyrics were inspired by what you had to say.
...and it sounds like we've all had a rough few years. Keep making your art, and know that we can make our situation better!
I don’t think there is a song more personal to me than this one…
I’ve known a lot of people who have struggled with depression over the years, and Bram, my best friend in high school, was one of them. You would have never known it to meet the guy… he was always smiling and had a razor sharp sense of humor. But he told me that underneath it all a sadness was always present.
A few years after high school Bram took his own life. Many people, including me, were left hurt, confused, and angry, wondering what could have been done to prevent it. It took several years to accept that what happened was in no way my fault.
The lyrics to Many Miles came to me while we were out on tour. It was something like 4 in the morning and I was driving down an empty highway toward our next show while the guys slept in the back of the van. I was listening to the instrumental part of this song and had the overwhelming sensation of Bram’s presence. Gave me chills… The lyrics came out of me missing my friend and finding the strength to let go of the regret and guilt I had been carrying.
“As the miles roll by in silence all the while
I feel your presence at my side”
I think of Bram often, and wonder what our friendship would be like today had he chosen a different path. I still miss him a lot. We used my favorite photo of Bram for the cover of our album “The Death Rock EP” years after his death to pay tribute to a truly amazing guy.
“No need for words, time moves on
If in the end there's something more
All this will seem strange and small
Hope, in the end, is something more...”
If you or someone you know is having suicidal thoughts, please seek help… there are people who love you, and the emotional mess you leave behind is far greater than you think. http://www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org/

Having teetered on the edge myself I know first hand the silent chaos that ensues. Dont stop making music, some of us out there really need it. As sad as many sound it gives a sort of stregnth to stand up and try again.
