RVCA presented Chromeo and Love & Electrik in Vancouver. Photos by Natasha Lands.
Just recently Altamont advocate Damien Abraham, of our good friends Fucked Up, made an appearance and threw down a really amazing interview with CBC's Q TV (a great show if you ever get the chance to watch or listen). Damien and host Jian Ghomeshi sat down for an interesting discussion on his recent appearances on the now infamous in Canada, FOX News' late night show 'Red Eye with Greg Gutfeld’. If you're a fan of the band or had even just been following the Canadian Military comment controversy with FOX news then this is definitely worth the watch. Big ups to Dame for representing in an Altamont New Era.

Also, if you like the interview so much that you want to listen to it again and again, this is a link to a podcast version.

In the latest in the series of insightful video segments Altamont has been posting on their site they spend some time with Altamont OG contributor and hardflip expert, Bryan Herman. A really interesting piece as he sheds some light on the early Baker/Emerica era that we so fondly remember him for, as well as what it's like to live the dream so many of us wish we could.

Recently, on a trip to Cuba, Chris Nieratko and Mike Anderson became BFFs. We thought it'd be cute to see listen in on a phone conversation between them to figure out what these two very serious men talk about while alone.
