SAD HOUSES video premiere

Hey gang.  Been sometime yet again. Whelp, had a nice summer did ya? Well that's just swell.

SO anyways, we are still firin' away. Got some upcoming shows this FALL and KG and I are currently wood shedding a whole new batch of songs. WHAT? Yeah, we just put out a record earlier this year but there's a whole new one written. C'mon, that's just dumb you say. Well, maybe you're on to something. So that should be out before 2019 or 2021 for sure barring any horrific natural disasters.

OH and OUR NEW VIDEO for the song "Sad Houses" came out recently.  Check it out here:

You can also read this rad write up of it on NOISEY, if you're into rad write ups. I have to say they kinda hit the nail on the head. Thanks Noisey. 

This gem was directed by our good pal Brendan Mcknight over the summer. A nice little suburban overture to take you guys and gals into the dreaded autumn. I like autumn so back off... Arrgghhh (wields rubber knife for effect. end scene).

Anyway, when I'm not typing things like arrggh, I'm further explaining the video. Brendan shot this in and around the town of Keansburg, NJ where some of us reside (note the now infamous Teenage Graceland back cover structure making its 2nd video appearance in the background!). Big thanks also to Frankie Caputo for editing this for us, Colleen Kamen for her killer acting, Brian Truchan for getting glass stuck in his foot running around in costume, Christopher Brown for somehow finding us in the woods and smokin cigs, and Abbey the dog. 

Okay. That's that.  Anyways, enjoy the big show, which is like life or something like it. Check the link on the side for some upcoming shows we're working on. Sooooo loooooooooooooong.

NEW VIDEO for "Shitty Parade" OUT NOW!

Hey gang.

Our newest video premiered recently over at Brooklyn Vegan for the single off our hot off the plates LP Teenage Graceland.  The track in question is none other than "Shitty Parade," your grandma's favorite song to tell her friends about.

Check it out below.


YES.  Surprisingly enough, it IS radio friendly.

The video was directed by our bud Anthony Palma from the great band Wild Rice, with assistance from Josh Stavola. Also, thanks to our friends Colleen and Shannon for helping and hanging out.

Stick that in your pipe and snuff it out.

More to come. HANG TIGHT.... and hang loose.

Hey everyone. After a long absence from the blogger scene, the brick mower machine is back writing some shit. Basically, this blog is first damn thing that comes up in Google, and then someone posted on twitter it looks like we broke up. Well if not updating a blog means we broke up, then shit, that guy can carry the amps into the next show... Cause this ship is still sailing.

Anyways, THE BLOG IS UPDATED.  Also, a good reason to update, we have a NEW LP that came out recently on Don Giovanni Records.   Teenage Graceland, 11 brand new songs from us, by us, for you, and you, and YOU.  

You can order the LP here from Don Giovanni Records, or stream it at our bandcamp.

Alright. Alright.  We're playing some shows, looking to do a tour this September. Check back soon. We should be posing a video on this site REAL SOON.   Thanks for hanging with us.  Take it easy.   

More thorough update to come soon. Soon. SOOOOOOOOON.

NEW LP IS A COMIN'/ Where Have We Been?/ Where Are We Going?

The title of this blog really says it all.  Okay then. Bye!

JUST KIDDING. I wouldn't do that to you. But seriously is says it all. Manages to ask a couple questions in it too.

If you follow this blog or band (we hope band before blog), you might have noticed we've been off this forum for a little bit. Well, sometimes typing gets too damn tedious, and you gotta get off the computer. But in reality, we were putting the finishing touches on some stuff, playing a few shows, and generally sluggishly limping through the winter. SO, what's new with us....?

OUR NEW LP Teenage Graceland will be released on LP via Don Giovanni Records on March 25th!!!

YOU CAN PRE-ORDER at the Don Giovanni Records webstore HERE!

Also, a post beforehand would have done some good but can't relive the past. (That's good advice everyone since it is impossible).  We got to play the 2014 Don Giovanni Records Showcase this year at the Music  Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, and it funking ruled.  Thanks to Joe and Zach for another awesome year.  Below's a video of reasonable audio, but pristine picture quality of us playing our song "Punched Out." Check out those moves!!!!  The part where Kitsin spins on her head while walkin' up the bass Mingus-style is nuts!

So anyways, pre-order the LP. We're having 2 record release shows March 21st (in Brooklyn at the Acheron) and March 22nd (in New Brunswick, NJ at Cooler Ranch).  Please check the tour dates link on the sidebar for details.  

More info to come on that.

FINALLY, we're going to be heading out on a 3 week tour starting April 18th.  Tour dates and locations will be announced soon as we stitch this thing together with a dull needle and tangled twine. 

THANKS!  See ya's sooner than we did the last post.  The wheel's are turning again on the rusty machine.
