It has taken some time to put the wheels back on, but now we have the traction we needed to handle the double horsepower. The spokes have been tuned to quartz crystal standards. The tires have been laced with carbon fiber. The band is a whole. There is jet fuel in the tank.
We now roll.
Having given the go-ahead from the pit-crew we tested the full-throttle version of this new groove at the Fisherman’s Festival in Everett WA. See pic below.
We now turn the compass toward Boise… and Missoula. SF and LA are directly next. Stay tuned for after parties and house visits under the radar (these are the kinds of light tours that can afford a little socializing on the side before we pile back in for the long hauls).
It has been too long since we have seen your beautiful faces. There’s gonna be lots of hugs.
Looking forward to an EP this summer and an LP soon to follow. Our moon waxes and is soon full.

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.

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.
