You'll see. Check the links below!!!
WE MADE IT!!! WE DID IT!!! The debut single off our brand spankin' new record, I'm Rich Beyond Your Wildest Dreams (out later this summer on Infinity Cat Recordings), went up today on Pitchfork.

Anyways, we'll keep this brief, but we're incredibly excited to announce that we'll be playing our last show in Nashville until our album release at the end of the summer, with our best buds in Titus Andronicus and The So So Glos! It'll be on May 13th at The Stone Fox. This WILL sell out, so if you can please get tickets in advance! The poster and facebook event are below. COME DO THE ULTIMATE PARTY WITH US!!!!!!!!!
I'm gonna keep this really simple today. SXSW was completely insane and totally amazing. Thanks to EVERYONE who had anything to do with us being there, interacted with us, took pictures or videos, got sweaty, grabbed crotches, drank beers, crowd surfed for the first time (looking at you Jon Blistein), and had the absolute best time possible this March in Austin. We definitely had a a great time!
And now, on to the main order of business: APRIL TOUR DATES! THEY'RE HERE AND THEY'RE FRESHER THAN EVER! TAKE A LOOK AT THE POSTER-ISH THING BELOW! THANKS!
WOOHOO!!! HERE IT IS!!! OUR SXSW SCHEDULE FOR 2013!!! If you see any open times and would like to have us on a showcase/do an interview/hang out/whatever, please don't hesitate to send us an email regarding said option. Let's goooooooo::
3/13 – Shea Stadium/Consequence of Sound Party @ Palm Door (10PM)
3/14 – Texas Jumpstart 6 w/The Midgetmen Party @ Side Bar (3:30 PM) AND Fuzz NYC/God Mode Party @ The Brixton (9PM)
3/15 – Impose Magazine/NYU Party @ Long Branch (10PM)
We had a blast on this most recent run out to Denver and back. DENVER WAS TOTAL CHAOS thanks to our main babes at Volcom. The rest of the tour was also a total adventure seeing as we hadn't ever played a lot of the places we hit.
Also, BIG UPS to the boys in PUJOL, had a blast running around the southeast for a couple weeks with them in January.
Now we're just gearing up for SXSW, some AWESOME local shows (including the infamous FREAKIN' WEEKEND...what up www.nashvillesdead.com), and prepping the release of our BRAND NEW FULL LENGTH that's coming out this May 2013. It's gonna boast some pretty incredible album art, courtesy of the incredible Perry Shall. More details to come soon.
OH! I almost forgot, most importantly, we're gonna be putting up a Kickstarter to help us get a new van so we can tour to even more cities this year. Our faithful, maroon beauty finally gave out on us this last December, literally as we pulled into the last stop on our December tour. So until we get a new van ya'll are gonna be seeing a LOT of us in the form of two cars. One hatchback, and one souped up Corolla cruiser. Bring it USA.
