iTunes session, more shows, release in UK and Japan!



we are on tour with the good men and women in ra ra riot. it's been RA RA RADICAL!!! love those kids. and big ups to walter meego, ya know? hence the infrequent blog posts.

cool beans, dudes.

in fact, we have many exciting things happening now and in the future, and forever...

here's what's going down:

- a few weeks back we did a session for the exclusive "iTunes Sessions" or whatever they are called. we are really proud of it, and can't wait for you all to hear it. we did a few old songs, and a couple new ones, but even the old songs sounds completely different. we think you'll be surprised!! here's the tracklisting:

damnit anna (supersoul version)
i wanna be like you (jungle book cover)
back and again (big echo preview)
i was wrong (nico version)
doctor doctor (alt version of 'patient patient')

- we have a few more ra ra shows on the east coast, but we also have shows of our own. come check out the puma in-stores where we'll be doing some acoustic sets. these are a lot of fun. we get to play songs we don't usually play live/full band, and generally we take requests... we also have a bunch of FREE shows on the west coast at the end of this month. see all dates at the bottom.

- 'talking through tin cans' is finally getting released in the UK and Japan! yahooooooooo! we are doing a limited release in the UK now exclusively through Rough Trade. if you purchase the album you also get a limited edition 7" of waiting for a war. DO IT!
