Everything Is Green & Submarine...
Ah, the sweet smell of Spring below the Mason-Dixon line... When we left the good ole US of A in early April for the Old World, god's green earth was just beginning to stir, sporadic blossoms here and there among the many stark naked trees. Upon our return a mere month later? The Earth screaming green and vernal! Glorious! Well, George said all things must pass. Even winter, I suppose.
Our travels across France and Belgium and jolly ole England were triumphant and invigorating. We sang songs. We rode trains. We released a record. We met old friends. And made new ones, too. And we made a video. A real music video. The French call them clips. We call that cute. Our French clip is lovely, if we do say so ourselves. It's for a song called Fistful Of Swoon. We'll release it soon. We promise. But for now, you can click that fancy link below to see the moving picture we synced up with the tune. Newfangled devilry!
So much to share, where to go next? Ah, vinyl! Yes, we're proud as peacocks to announce the arrival of our very first 7-inch record. A limited edition run whipped up extra-special like in conjunction with Providence's Supply & Demand Music, our very first 45 RPM record features two new tracks, Turpentine and Woolgathering, both of which will appear on our new and as-yet-unreleased-outside-of-France'n'Belgium'n'Switzerland record. Why wait for the full length when you can enjoy two new tracks today? For more information on the Turpentine b/w Woolgathering 7-inch, please skedaddle over to www.sad-music.net. To help celebrate the birth of our very first vinyl, we've lined up a healthy string of US shows stretching as far north as Maine, as far west as Chicago, and as far south as Nashville, with lots of other stops in between. For more tour date info, please see the SHOWS section of this very site.
So much more to share with you so very soon. All in due time. Yes, all in due time.
