We've released a new song called Juror B37 and it is available as a free download on our Soundcloud until August 2nd. We're asking that if people download the song, they consider making a donation to the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.
Big news people. We're releasing a new single on a 7" called Torrential Zen, coming out on Uninhabitable Mansions on Nov 9th. This audibly and visually exquisite 7" record is a partnership between bands from the wonderful cities of Brooklyn, NY and Milwaukee, WI.
Starting today, for the next week, you can stream our contribution to the record, "New Frontier":
After a wonderful summer spent gardening, writing and watching Mystery Science Theater 3000, we're gonna be hitting the road again! We'll be hitting some of our favorite spots in the midwest, south and down the east coast, as well as a few new cities, including Lexington, Cincinnati and Greensboro!
Best of all, we'll be hitting the road with our best Brooklyn buds, Shark?! And for the last leg of the tour, we'll be joined by the fantastic BRAINSTORM, out of Portland, OR.
