We're shipping every day, so your physical copy will get there quickly!

NEW VIDEO FOR "ANIMALS OF PRIDE!"

Happy Friday!

We're dropping a line to let you know that our first music video is now up. We shot the video for "Animals of Pride" ourselves, using only our phones. The footage is from five different cemeteries in Nashville and Franklin, TN. It was shot in one weekend, and edited by us over the following week. We absolutely loved the process and hope it connects with you.


The shows for the rest of this month are below, and we'll be doing some touring throughout the Spring and Summer, including a tour in August with BELLS≥ (Brooklyn) and the EFFECTS (DC) . . . and J. Robbins will also be playing one of the shows! Confirmations are still pending, but you can be sure we'll be blasting those dates far and wide as soon as they're locked down.

Be good to one another. We'll talk soon.
Yours in friendship and rock,
Jerry and B.

SHOWS:
04/17/16 --- MurderHut, Murfreesboro TN
04/25/16 --- Haymarket Whiskey Bar, Louisville KY

SPRING SHOWS!

Hello out there!

Happy Spring to you all.

We had the best time on tour in February. Thanks to all who came out, shook our hands, played with us, and just made the whole experience so positive. We can't wait to return to those towns!

Here's a photo from the Bowery Ballroom show with the Loved Ones.


We have some tour dates shaping up for May, and we'll be sure to send them out to you when they're all confirmed. In the more immediate future, we have two shows somewhat close to home. We play a rad house show in Murfreesboro TN on April 17th, and we're stoked to be playing with Mutoid Man in Louisville KY on April 25th! Tickets for that are on sale now, and might sell out. Be sure to grab yours!

We hope you're enjoying the new album. If you don't have DAVE yet, physical copies can be purchased here (in three formats!), and it's available on iTunes. Our last EP, GARFIELD, is also up on iTunes and Spotify, as of just last week! It was previously only available on cassette and download via bandcamp.

Both releases benefit important causes. One dollar of every copy of DAVE will be donated to HIV/AIDS programs, and one dollar of every copy of GARFIELD will be donated to animal rescue efforts.

Last, we have some new shirts up for sale. Want one?


Be good to one another. We'll talk soon.

Yours in friendship and rock,
Jerry and B.

SHOWS:
04/17/16 --- MurderHut, Murfreesboro TN
04/25/16 --- Haymarket Whiskey Bar, Louisville KY

PRE-ORDER THE DAVE ALBUM TODAY!

Happy 2016, everyone!

Our first album is up for pre-order today! You can order whichever format(s) of DAVE you wish, and you'll get one song from the record now, "Animals of Pride." All physical formats will include the digital download of the album, and all but vinyl will ship out on the release day, February 12th. Because vinyl is such a complicated beast, it takes significantly longer to press. We're shooting for May 1st as the shipping date for that format. It's our first vinyl release!

One dollar of every copy sold (in any format) will be donated to HIV/AIDS programs.



A little bit about our new project: we made this album twice. Remember last Spring when we sent you a newsletter that said something like, "Our album is done! We can't wait to let you know when it will be out!"? Well, that was true. We sat on that record for a little bit, sussed out our best options for releasing it, and made the GARFIELD EP in the meantime. As you know, that EP came out this past October. Alas, it was better than the album we'd made. Somehow we had changed as a band, and we wanted our first album to reflect who and what we really are today.

We went back to the body of work formerly known as our album, kept four songs, kissed the rest goodbye and started over. We wrote the rest of the story, recorded it all, and it became DAVE. It is the story of changed perspectives, from negative to positive. It's about being the person you want to be, despite the losses and disappointments life will inevitably deliver. We hope you connect with it.

We tracked the record ourselves. Jerry mixed it. Alex McCollough mastered it.

The artwork is by B. David Walsh, of course. The pineapple is his sacred image, and it is also the image of welcome and friendship. We thought it was exactly right for this project and we're so grateful to have collaborated with him once more. The graphic rendering was done by our beloved team member, Ric Simenson.

Our updated tour schedule for next month is below. Two of our eleven shows are sold out (!), but there are still tickets for the rest. We can't wait to see all of you, and to share this new work we're so proud of. Happy pre-order day, and happy new year.

Yours in friendship and rock,
Jerry and B.

THE ALBUM, THE TOUR, AND HOLIDAY DISCOUNTS

Hey friends,

We have some solid updates for you this month. The album we've been telling you about for a while now finally has a name and release date: Our debut full-length, DAVE, will be released on February 12th, 2016. We're so stoked to be able to finally share this work with you; it's been a long time in the making. Pre-order will start on January 15th, and we'll share the cover art as well as available formats with you then.

Mere days after the album comes out, we'll be on the road in support of it. Our February tour dates are still being finalized, but several of them are confirmed and listed at the bottom of this post. Have we mentioned that we're a duo full time now? We are. We have been since September (and a for couple shows before that, here and there). We've played with some rad bassists in our time as a band, but it became clear that we'd be able to tour more as a duo. It's actually been a blast. So, if you've seen us before as a trio, we have something new for you.

As for right now, we're writing, rehearsing, and running the record label. If you want to give the gift of FC this holiday season, we've tried to make it as easy as possible. You can now buy downloads of GARFIELD, "TSS001"and the Halloween singles together for 15% less than buying them individually. We also have cassettes (that come with download codes), tote bags, T's and buttons. Because we love you, here's a code to take 10% off of our physical wares through Christmas day, too: FCPALS

We'll gift-wrap anything you ask us to, free of charge; just add a note to do so when you pay.



Huge thanks to all who have supported the GARFIELD release! Ditto, our most recent Halloween single. We made donations to a local animal rescue organization AND to the Butler Center for addition research, thanks to all of you. We truly appreciate you. Happy holidays.

Rock,
FC
