Death’s Door // July 2019

As is tradition, welcome to Death’s Door, Hellions. Wipe your feet on the mat and pull up a bone throne. July was a good month for the ol’ plug-and-chug. I feel like garbage physically today, folks. Which honestly feels like an outward manifestation of how I feel on the inside…
