So pleased to bring you are latest music video, directed by Michael Chiu. Thanks for the love, as always, and enjoy!
Yo! Been a minute since I posted something. We’ve been in the midst of a major transition the last few weeks, as we have been working hard to bring in our new drummer, Derek Swink. Derek is originally from Michigan and has lived in LA for the last couple of years, teaching and playing drums. We’re EXTREMELY excited to have him on, and know that it will be a great fit.
Over the last month or so, I’ve been making a bunch of weekend trips to various cities, most recently to DC and Boston. In DC, I had the incredible opportunity to open up for Andy Suzuki and the Method. Friends came out and it was a blast. We’ve got a bunch of stuff lined up, including an acoustic EP, more shows, and a solo tour announcement. PEACE!

When I started this project in the summer of 2011, I really just wanted to make music with good friends. Three years later, after various personnel changes, multiple full band and solo tours, and much headache and reward, we’ve released our second full-length record. Thanks so much to everyone who contributed to this record and to our unbelievably loyal and solid support group which grows by the day. Here’s GIRLS, the latest LP from Dizzy Bats.

Yo! Hello from Oberlin, OH. It’s been a total of three shows since I left for the Northeast/Midwest leg of this tour, and it’s been nothing but good times and questionable choices. Dave and Eric joined me for the first two nights in Boston and Albany before heading back to NYC. The local Beantown crowd seriously came out and supported some talented acts including our friends in Box of Birds and Pulitzer Prize Fighter. It was so much fun teaming up with those dudes and girls for a night of very loud music. Albany rocked hard and we had the pleasure of being served a home cooked dinner from Eric’s mom. Ohio came through once again, as I ran into friends old and new at the show in Canton. I’m off to Chicago today (8/13) to meet up with the talented Conor Walsh of Fin-Folsom. Thanks to everyone for the support, and be sure to check out our recently released single, “I’m Drunk, She’s Sober”. Peace!
Friends, it’s been an incredible summer. After working at a Mandarin Chinese language camp for a month, I had the great pleasure of working with Michael Chiu again on another music video. We were able to take over a fast food joint for an entire afternoon and shot into the early hours of the AM. After that, I flew to the Bay Area for a run of five shows. As always, California treated me extremely well, as these shows keep getting better and better. Thanks to all for a great week.
It’s with great pride to announce that our second LP, “Girls”, will be released on August 26th, 2014. We are extremely stoked to share these tunes. Thanks for the incredible support.
Still a lot of shows left this summer! Hope to see you on the road. Take care.

I feel extremely lucky that I have been given so many amazing creative opportunities. Co-producing this video was one of the most rewarding experiences I’ve ever had. Thank you all so much for the support.
2014 continues to be our most prolific year yet. We have made so many unbelievable strides as a band and it’s all thanks to our incredible support system. Thank you so much.
Like many bands, we too have had our fair share of lineup changes, as members have come and gone. I’ve spent the entirety of April bringing our new bassist and guitarist up to speed, and they have exceeded expectations. There is a new and wonderful energy that has come with these gentleman, and I’m so excited to see how it plays out on stage and in the studio.
On May 11th we’re in Brooklyn to finish up our second full-length record. It’s still blows my mind every time I put that together. It’s been a wild two years and we’re so proud of these new tunes.
In late May we will be releasing the music video for “Girls”. This video was shot back in March when I was on my solo West Coast tour. We grabbed some beautiful footage, and I cannot wait to show you all.
This June we will be releasing two new songs that will also be on our full-length record while also gearing up for another music video shoot. I’ll also be sending out a stupid amount of emails to booking agents, bloggers, and labels as we continue to spread that good Dizzy Bats word. Thanks, all.
May and June Shows:
May 9th, Trash Bar, Brooklyn, NY
June 11th, Cake Shop, New York, NY
