It has been an incredible month. In mid-February we spent two days mixing songs for our upcoming release which is set for 3/25. The wonderful people over at Surviving the Golden Age will be providing a premiere of our single, “Girls”, a few days before release. I’ll be on the road in a couple weeks time and am very excited to see you at some shows. THAAANKS.
1/26 was spent in Brooklyn, NY, where we tracked our upcoming EP. It’s become apparent that consistent rehearsal pays off and we are so excited to see these tracks through. Release date will be announced soon, as well as the reveal of the very catchy and colorful cover art.
I’m doing a West Coast solo tour with Lucy Arnell and Rob Coonrod in March. Confirmed dates and venues are below. Would be so great to see you at any of these shows. Thanks so much.

It has been an absolutely incredible year. In 2013, we released two EPs, embarked on three tours, and played over forty shows in over a dozen states. Our two recent local shows at Trash Bar and Cake Shop in November and December, respectively, could not have been a better way to cap off this tremendous year. Thank you all so much.
We will start out 2014 in the studio, where we will track our fourth release in our almost three years of existence. We will be working with our very own Kyle Joseph at Cowboy Technical in Brooklyn, NY.
Our first full-band show will be on 2/7 at our beloved Trash Bar. My little brother, AKA Mugen, as well as our friends in Good Times Cocaine and Boompa (MA) will be sharing the stage. See you there.
Despite show cancellations and other headaches that come with being on the road, this trip could not have been better. There’s something special about getting on the road and playing awesome shows away from your hometown. This wouldn’t be possible without the unbelievable support from friends, family and fans. Touring as a new artist/band comes with many challenges and frustrations. Empty rooms, shitty PA systems, ungrateful promoters to name just a few. The encouragement, support, and generosity displayed by the aforementioned groups makes it all worth it, and just saying “thanks” is not even close to enough. We have so much to look forward to, including our EP release (drops 10/14) and mini-tour, all happening this fall. One million thanks for your continued support and maintained interest. Good day.
After almost a month on the road, we’re back to our respective homes. Since Elko, NV, we made our way back across, first stopping in Boulder, Chicago, and Oberlin. On September 11th, we played in Milwaukee at Art Bar. Cool people and great beer made for a highlight night. Now that I’m back, the full band work begins. On 10/14 we’ll be dropping our third official release, “Appendectomy”, which will be available on iTunes, Spotify, Bandcamp, and the rest of the internet. Additionally, we’re booking a full band mini-tour for November, and will be learning some new material in the meantime. Many, many thanks to everyone for making this tour possible. Love and health to you all.
