We’re thrilled to announce our first-ever full U.S. tour beginning September 1st in Cleveland, OH.
This includes 20 or so dates with Scottish juggernauts the Fratellis .
We fully expect it to be an adventure and hope we can meet you in New York, Chicago, Dallas, Des Moines, and other sunny glens along the American interstate. Dates and locations are posted below. We’ll be announcing additional ones shortly.
Spin.com named us Artist of the Day today. That was very nice of them.
We’re playing Late Night with Conan O’Brien this Friday . Hope you can watch.
Right now, we’re on the 95 South, having just crossed the Delaware River (much like George Washington did back in the day, only with guitar amps). The tour so far has been amazing and ridiculous. We’ve had a few firsts this tour, including an encounter with a bear, a ping pong tournament with M83, and a helicopter ride into the Pemberton Festival, against our better judgment. The show was fantastic, the people were lovely, Canada rocks and rolls and stays for beers after.

We also had our good friend and L.A. blogger Mouse along for a few days.. You can read his highly readable account on his blog, Classical Geek Theatre .
Oh, and we’ve posted our second-to-last acoustic video, this one for "Missy" . We’ll release our final video on August 5th, the day of our album release.
