our spring tour is ready, its waiting, and its going to be quite hot and bothered.
in massive rooms across the united states and canada we truck our lives and our cargo into your ears. Ticket links are available on SHINYTOYGUNS.COM, make double sure you move quickly as the radio power of all american rejects will have these admits snatched away before you can reach them.
If you truly want to come see us and the tickets are sold out completely for a show, write us here and if we can pull something to get you in we will do so within our means.
This involves direct and complete honesty with you .. please do not just try to get free tickets as we need to save the ones we get for people who wanted to come and were unable to get the tickets in time.
AFTER AAR ..
our beautiful canada :)
shiny toy guns and offspring.

Let me explain.
When we make moves to do things .. whether it be tours, free shows, appearances, new music, anything that we do that is impactful to music, to people's lives we need to make sure that the right people know about it and the right people are excited about it. But this is completely impossible for us to do on our own. We cannot depend on a "record company" or anything like that to do this right.
So enter FANCORPS. Its free. Its simple. And everything you do is recorded and noted and highlighted. And you are rewarded for everything you do with all of the things that you want from us as an artist.
Things like free T-shirts ... hats ... all of our merchandise.
Free tickets to shows.
Free backstage passes to shows.
How about ride in our bus to a show?
Even how about let us FLY you to a show if you do something incredibly crazy in return.
So join us via FANCORPS ... move mountains for music that you believe in .. for a message that you believe in, for a movement in forward thinking that you believe in.
Because alone we are nothing. Alone you are nothing.
Together things happen. You know this! .
And ALL of you ... follow the day to day lives that this band lives .... on TWITTER. The ups and downs, the ins and outs. All of the things we try and test, learn and live through.
You can get this to your phone during the day, or your computer at home. However you choose.
Do this :)
Go tell this on the mountain.
shinys 2009 :
Finally the wait is over ! ! ! !
Without further ado, the anticipated animation video for our new single "GHOST TOWN" is now ready to be revealed ... exclusively on myspace!!!!.
This video was directed and created by Glen Hanson, a native of toronto and an internationally acclaimed illustrator and writer. Together with a team of amazing artists at SIX POINT HARNESS in Los Angeles, the GHOST TOWN video was fully realized from the concept that Glen created for our song.

We streamed this through the party complex of BOXEIGHT .. the location of the Mercedes Benz Los Angeles Fashion Week for both 2008 and the upcoming 2009.
We had some technical issues that evening with the servers .. but now we are about to reveal this video live and to the public ... here, exclusively, on MYSPACE.

some people really do live in a ghost town.
and most people don't notice.
we notice. and so do you.
As much as we possibly can we do what we can to help where we can : : and in this moment of life help is so much more important than really anything to so many lives.

join us for helping people that are house-less. or electricity-less. or unable to satisfy hunger for their families.
Because no one is truly HOMEless. not while there are others alive to reach out to them.
reaching sometimes stretches.
and one day, if not today, you will need someone to reach out to you, for whatever reason.
so think around yourself. instead of just straight ahead:)
I need to do the same, just as you and her and him.
