Well, we seem to have brought the storm with us. The last sunny day we saw was in Sacramento. As we ponder upon Seattle’s grey and gloomy skies hovering over the twinkling lights of San Antonio, we can only hope that with it we brought Seattle’s taste in good music, and that it will follow us to Austin, TX, where Rolling Stone named us one of the top 25 SXSW bands not to miss. Sorry for all the bad weather, we’ll make it up to you.
Here’s where we’re playing in Austin. Come say hi.

We have returned from yonder melting mountain of doom and will deliver unto your ears very soon a sneak peek demo of what will become our second album. Now home we prepare for a short tour down the west coast with the ever popular Typhoon and our dearly beloved friends Ravenna Woods. We stop in Eugene, Nevada City, SF, LA, some where in Arizona, Dallas, San Antonio, and come to rest (if you can call it “rest”) in Austin before heading back through Denver, SLC, and Boise. We promise to have some new songs in the live set up and running for your enjoyment, and we promise not to swagger too much at having been showcased on the front page of the SXSW site on more than one occasion. We are SO EXCITED to be a part of the destruction and havoc we have heard that Austin will inevitably rend upon your souls and livers. We are equally excited to shop the new record around and see what dreams may come. Do not hesitate to tell your label CEO friends that we are in the market. ;) God willing, we won’t have to stop riding around in this van ever…ever…ever.
Onward, my fellow creatives. Be who you want, you know you are the one.

Happy New Year! We got an early holiday gift in the form of the unveiling of our Daytrotter session. MAN! Seems like we recorded that thing months ago on our way back from our first east coast tour. OH THAT’S RIGHT! WE DID! What a gift and a surprise.
Our plans are simple, folks. We have taken our plunder and loot from this past year and are investing it into two sectors. 1) Time/space and 2) recording equipment. That’s right! After our BIG SHOW at Neumos with Brian John Appleby and Tomten on January 12th we are taking the whole Motopony magic machine up into the mountains of North Central Washington and hiding out in a cabin until we have channeled the best second album ever recorded by anyone. We may be gone as long as 6 years….but hopefully God favors the bold and we are back in time for SXSW!
Hope you all are well. We look forward to seeing you at Neumos on January 12th and you should look forward to hearing some of the new material we ALREADY have to show you that night. WHAAAAAAAAAUUUUAAAA!??!?!?!
You can purchase tickets for our show on Thursday, January 12th, at Neumos HERE.
