"Recording guitars at our home studio for the new Marasmus album due out this fall!!!!! Before this picture was taken, we had just finished working as a group on writing the lyrical content that inspired the guitar parts. Our new album is a concept album about paranormal activity and things such as ghosts, body-snatching living victims to use for killing sprees. We had some drinks and watched some spooky ghost movies beforehand to set the mood for writing the lyrics and guitar parts. The rest was up to our imaginations to run wild and take it from there."

"After a show at the Replay Lounge"
"This photo was taken June 9 on the front porch of the Jackpot Saloon and Music Hall during a deluge. We had been working on dressing up our sound and wanted to test it out on some drunk people, so we were doing an extremely early (and wet) sound check for our Lawrence Field Day show at the bar. One of our victims took the pic."
Dots Not Feathers
"Outside of playing music together, we're about as tightknit as possible. This picture was taken outside of Blank Space on Cherokee Street in St. Louis before a show. We showed up about two hours earlier than necessary so we could all hang out, eat pizza and figure out what we were doing afterwards. Most shows and hangouts end with us back at Stephen, Ryan and Nick's place playing Super Smash Bros. until 2 a.m."
"This is Austin and Dansare of Eyelit. This photo was taken on March 12 in Austin, Texas, at the MidCoast Takeover showcase at Shangri-La. It was a gorgeous sunny day. Everyone enjoyed their mini vacation by walking around downtown and taking in the sights and sounds."

"This pic was taken of us last month, just after we'd boarded an Airberlin jet to cross the Atlantic Ocean to begin our European tour. I believe we'd just been informed that the drinks would be free on the flight."
Me Like Bees
"We were playing for the Ernie Ball Battle of the Bands Final Showcase that night and needed to take a picture in front of the landmark venue, being our first time playing in California. There was no one around to take a picture for us, so we took our only selfie as a band. We then went to lunch across the street, where Luke rode a mechanical bull, was awarded copious amounts of cotton candy, played the show and won the 2013 Ernie Ball Battle of the Bands."

"We were on tour in Berlin and had some time to do some sightseeing. We drove past Checkpoint Charlie and noticed David Hasselhoff was posing with some fake Cold War soldiers. We jumped out of the moving van and started taking pictures. He was shaking our guitarist's (Will Knauer's) hand when this photo was snapped. I (Philip Dickey) sensed it was the photo opportunity of a lifetime. I'll never have to change my Facebook profile again. Also: Our van broke down on the way to Hamburg later that day."
