.. Unhappy with the current state of ska music, We Are The Union decided to stick out their own necks and tried to change things for the better in the summer of 2005. Getting a paycheck is not on their agenda. Instead of following typical ska punk conventions, WATU takes a harder-nosed approach to the genre. With influences ranging from Philadelphia/New Jersey favorites Lifetime and Kid Dynamite, and bands like Slapstick and This Is A Standoff, they rage with the best of them while still retaining a heightened sense of melody. Their love for fast music, horns and their incredibly short attention spans are a simple explanation for why WATU sound the way they do. Over the past two and a half years, they have also been incredibly hardworking. With nearly a dozen tours in the US and UK under their belt in this short span of time, they’ve now thrown caution to the wind and continue to be on the road full time. This will surely add to the list of heavy hitters they’ve shared the stage with that includes The Suicide Machines, Shook Ones, Mustard Plug, Set Your Goals, The Flatliners, Voodoo Glow Skulls, Make Do And Mend, Spring Heeled Jack, Bomb! The Music Industry, The Aquabats, Four Year Strong, Such Gold, Fireworks, Hostage Calm, Transit, The Wonder Years, The Swellers, A Loss For Words, and Hellmouth. Their work ethic cannot just be applied to their tours either. Their first full-length “Who We Are,” self-released in the summer of 2007, was given away for free by the band via the Internet. Their generosity was met with a rapidly surging fan base and an offer to have the record released in Japan via InYaFace Records. Their expectations for the band are simple. They want to keep making music they love while touring relentlessly in order to provide people with a positive environment for fun and the venting of frustration. Paper + Plastick saw the youthful exuberance and the amount of integrity this young bunch of punks had and quickly wanted to become involved. 2010 brings the release of “Great Leaps Forwards”, the Billy Bragg-inspired new full length from We Are The Union. Already outselling their previous releases, WATU hits Canada and the US in support of "Great Leaps Forward" with Strung Out (Fat Wreck Chords) and Rufio this August and September. ....Fast dudes, fast tunes.....

Father John Misty: After dropping out of college in New York, Josh Tillman (b. 1981) moved to Seattle and spent a year paying rent by freelance writing and donating plasma. Befriending Eric Fisher (Damien Jurado, Rosie Thomas) while on tour in the fall on 2004, Tillman coerced him into recording what would become ” I Will Return”, a full-length reminiscent of the southern-gothic writings of Flannery O’Conner and the music of Nick Drake and Pete Seeger. The CD-R would be distributed and promoted word-of-mouth in paper sleeves while on the road (with acts such as Damien Jurado, Dolorean and Saxon Shore) for over a year until spring 2005 when KEEP Recordings offered to release a limited, special edition run of the record. Tillman continues to record constantly, finishing a full-length with Fisher entitled ”Long May You Run, J. Tillman”.

Artist is also tagged by download services as J. Tillman, and aside from his role as a prolific singer-songwriter, also plays drums for Seattle WA based band Fleet Foxes. Since 2012, he has taken a drastic departure from his previous musical style. Now touring and releasing music under the moniker Father John Misty, Tillman's creative direction has taken an ethereal and meandering direction that has become a hit with old fans and new.
