So we're about to be back in new
orleans (our gps says our eta is 5:37pm) and that means our summer
tour that consisted of 40 shows covering most of the continental
US, is coming to an end. We have a homecoming show coming up in New
Orleans on the 28th with Summer Blondes (met them in Oakland. So
amazing) and Twin Killers (we met two of the dudes in this band at
one our first shows in Baton Rouge ever and their music is fckng
insane, in most definitely the best sense of the phrase). The
info's all on the flyer. Hope to see our Nola homies there.

We met so many
amazing/hospitable/helpful/generous bands and individuals that we
are incredibly thankful for and indebted to for being slices of
heaven on earth.
We are so lucky and glad to know and have met such great
people while on the road. We can't do it without all of you.
We love touring and will do it again soon.
