Jam in the Van videos just hit the streets HARD and we are very pleased with how they turned out. How did they make us look good? We’re going on a little microtour over the next few days, opening for Arizona legends Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers. Also, we’ve got two, count em’, two, Halloween weekend shows (one at Bandit Town and the other in Nevada City). Get on board with us!
It’s been a great summer so far, and we’re really glad to be a part of so many cool events where we get to do what we love. Recently we were asked to do a live recording with Jam in the Van. There event, which was held at Lennon Studios was an awesome combination of great sponsors, musicians, with dedicated photographers, videographers, and engineers. Special thanks to the folks we met there and the awesome sponsors, including Dharma Eyewear, Kevin & Gail’s Chili Palace, and RADD.
We are also really glad to have played at the Phono del Sol festival which brought together so many awesome bands on one of the most beautiful days ever in San Francisco. Does it get any better than this?
Just wanted to throw a shout-out to all the amazing people at Lagunitas for making yesterday’s show at their LaguMiniAmphitheaterette so incredible. We are so grateful to Katie, Laura, Johnny Lightning, Caroline, Lenka, Travis, Jeremy, Taylor, and everybody else for taking such great care of us. Seriously, you guys are incredible and we never wanted to leave.
It was bassist Jon Payne’s birthday, and the guys from Delta Spirit (who are awesome, by the way) had us sing “Don’t Let Me Down” with them (see above pic). As an extra bonus, Chris sang “Harvest Moon”. This was the most fun we’ve ever had at a show. EVER.
Ok, now for the future. We’re playing at Davis Music Fest this Friday with the French Cassettes at Sudwerk Brewery. This is the last time we’ll be hitting up Davis for a while, so please check this out. Also, we’re getting fired up for our performance at San Francisco’s own Phono del Sol, with headliners Tanlines and King Tuff. This summer is already going off the chain!
We are pleased to announce that we have been featured in Noisetrade’s New + Notable section (the front page!) where you can download our album, “From the Beginning” for free. Just click on the link below:
Great news!! We signed a record deal with Randm Records today and they are going to release our upcoming EP, Silent Revolution, due out sometime in 2015. We are very excited to work with the label and record at their Lost Ark Studio. As a bonus, the label will be ‘officially’ re-pressing our debut record From the Beginning AND more T-shirts/merch are on the way.
It’s also a great time to announce that we will playing some amazing festivals this year which we’re very excited to be a part of. This is our first year on the circuit, so any help via word-of-mouth and attending these events will never be forgotten:)
