Kate Hoos of Lady Bizness, Cop/Out, and Punk Island is back this week to get down and talk about her other passion photography.

Jason Tancer, my brother and bandmate from All Torn Up!, gets down to get some perceptive on our recent ATU European tour with Leftöver Crack, and touring in other countries in general. We talk a ton of shit as usual, and hopefully give you a little bit of insight about what it is like to be on tour with LoC, but we also try to process some of the differences between bringing conscious punk music to shows in the US vs. shows abroad, and spend some time processing all the wonderful people we met all over who firmly live life outside the confines of capitalist relations and treated us like family! But mostly we just talk about dumb shit that happened on tour.

Plus we listen to tunes from Leftöver Crack, All Torn Up!, Atavistic Traits, Con Era, and Deathbus.
