    Spring Has Sprung & New Show ShoutOuts!

    We are back from awesome Austin!

    There were a lot of great bands at SXSW this year & we want to give a quick shout out to old friends Gnarly Charlies (Muscle Shoals), Peter Gréen & friends (Finland, Norway), Carrie from Dallas, Case Federal (Austin by way of Charlotte), Megan Jean & the KFB (true nomads) & Furniture Girls (Seattle) and to new friends Blaine The Mono (Orlando), Bellusira (L.A. by way of Australia, New Zealand & Rhode Island), and American Mannequins (Athens) all of whom brought smiles to our faces and made Austin feel like a second home.

    Due to scheduling conflicts we were bummed to have missed other friends rocking the stages at south by: Today The Moon Tomorrow The Sun, Matrimony, and Rachel Kate, and some others we are sure snuck by in the chaos — we will see you all soon!

    Oh! And this happened, which was a very cool surprise to come home to…

    Since we’ve been back, we’ve been adding show dates all over the place!

    It only seems quiet... spooky quiet...

    It might seem like things are quiet. Cold and icy, with a wind chill cutting through, rustling the bare branches & making the moonlight shift and dance on the ground… But your friendly neighborhood band with superpowers is not afraid…

    We hope you all are as warm as we are, we’ve battened down the hatches and are plotting, planning, writing, recording, videoing, and getting ready to announce new things on the horizon. Finishing touches are being brushed on to a video, and we have new songs we can’t wait for you to hear!

    Our basement practice room is our own secret lair, mostly soundproofed, and we can’t hardly wait for the unleashing to begin!

    So hold tight, and check back – new announcements (including new shows!) are imminent…

    In the meantime, check out our newly updated Press Page!  People wrote some nice things and mentioned us in the same sentence.
