08/03/19: Into the Studio
What’s up, y’all! It’s been a minute since I’ve included some news. Earlier this year we went on a couple of great tours down south and through the Midwest. Shortly after that I made the decision to take a break from shows, which is honestly weird for us. This is the first summer since 2011 that I personally haven’t been on the road at all, and I gotta say that it feels amazing. As much as I love touring, NOT touring certainly has it’s perks.
This decision was 100% due to our desire to focus completely on our new record, which we started writing over a year ago now. Happy to report that two preproduction sessions with our producer, Jon Markson, have already come and gone, and we’re slated for three more this month, before we head in to officially record in exactly one month from today (9/3). We are very excited to share these tunes with y’all. We went into the studio to record our first LP almost eight years ago now. Feel very lucky that we get to keep doing this. Thanks, fam.
11/15/18: Writing a New Record!
Hi friends! It’s been a minute. We’ve been quiet on the live shows front, but we are in the process of writing a new record which is very exciting. We played two new songs live the other night in Brooklyn, and we’re overall very stoked about our new material.
We’ll be heading out for a run of shows in January. More on that soon. Stay warm! - Connor
9/25/18: End of Summer News
Hi all! It’s been a minute since I’ve included an update. Literally a month ago to this day, we got home from a two week tour out to CO and back, with our friends in Hey Girl Slow Down. The tour was bookmarked midway by an incredible family reunion, where we got to perform for my many family members, and it was truly something special. It was a great tour overall, and I continue to be astonished by the amount of support we receive on the road, from friends, fans, and strangers.
We are currently working on writing a new record! It’s been four years since we put out an LP, and it’s time for a new, larger body of work to properly represent and display our sound. I’m extremely stoked. I’ve been working with our drummer Zach Sandel, and our bassist, Dave Ma, on a weekly basis to write and arrange these songs, and it’s been an absolute blast. We’ll be playing a few shows this fall, which will be announced shortly, but we’re mostly working on shedding some new tunage.
Thanks for everything, as always, I love you very much. <3, Connor
