One again, huge thanks for a positive year filled with purpose.

We'll have more news for you soon!

Happy World AIDS Day, and Happy Holidays,

OUR MID-WESTERN TOUR STARTS SUNDAY!

Hello, friends!

First, thanks so much for your support of our Halloween single, "Swan Dive." The Nashville Scene was kind enough to do a great write-up about it. Check it out!

Also, thanks to all who made it out to our set at FEST! It was rad to see some familiar faces there.

We're heading out for our first Mid-Western run on Sunday, November 13th. If you see your city on the list, come say hello!
























We're sending all the positivity in our hearts out to you all. These are weird times; listen to rock music.

Yours in friendship and PMA,
FC

INTRODUCING OUR 2016 HALLOWEEN SINGLE: "SWAN DIVE"!

It's the most wonderful time of the year!

Our Halloween single is out today, and this one is very special to us. This year, we chose to cover a song by a band that was once part of Nashville's Rock scene. Iodine, in our opinion, made some of the finest music to ever come out of this town, and we wanted to pay tribute to them by doing their song, "Swan Dive."

As usual, the single will completely benefit a charity, but this time the money will go to MusiCares, a wonderful organization dedicated to being of service to musicians in need. The money will be donated in loving and respectful memory of Chris Feinstein, bassist for Iodine. We had the privilege of playing his bass and guitar on our recording of "Swan Dive," thanks to the generosity of his family.

In other news, we JUST completed our first tour out West (last night!) and we had the best time. Thanks to all who contributed to the experience.

We are playing our only Nashville show of 2016 on October 28th with our friends in He is Legend and Look What I Did. Hope to see some of you local pals there! Then we're off to FEST, which we play on October 30th.

THEN, we have a week long tour of the Mid-West in November! Dates below. We love this life. Happy Halloween.
Yours in friendship and PMA,
FC

NEW SONG OUT TODAY! PLUS, OCTOBER TOUR DATES AND FEST!

Hey friends!
SURPRISE: We have a new song out today! It's called "Fighting Shape," and it's exclusively available on Ball of Wax, Volume 45! It's a great compilation, and every song is shorter than ninety seconds. We hope you like it! We recorded it the day after our incredibly awesome tour with BELLS≥ and the EFFECTS. We can't say enough about that touring experience. If we saw you, thank you for coming out. If we didn't, trust us when we say that the quality of music and fellowship were unmatched. We're so gad to have been a part of such a cool tour.

And there's more touring yet! We're finally making our maiden voyage West in October! There are still some dates to be added, but here's the list so far. Oh, and we're playing FEST in Gainesville on October 30th. Stoked!



Last, our new video for "NMA" will be out on September 16th! Can't for you to see it!

Yours in friendship and rock,

TOUR DATES, VINYL, AND PMA!

Hey pals!
We're heading back out on the road this month and into August. We're thrilled to be doing seven dates with BELLS≥ from Brooklyn and the EFFECTS from DC, as well as a few shows on our own. Other great bands on the shows include VAPERS, Drew O'Doherty, Billy Bouchard, Callowhill, Day of the Locust, and J. Robbins. Please check out the complete list of dates at the very bottom of this message and see if we're coming to your town!


The vinyl copies of DAVE came in and they're so rad. Vinyl comes with a digital download of the album, too. Grab one while they last!


The letters that B. wears on her stage suit stand for "Positive Mental Attitude." She made a few PMA bracelets for people who requested them, so we decided to sell them as band merch. Part of the proceeds benefit the health funds for HR and Dr. Know of Bad Brains, longtime champions of PMA. Here's a picture of HR himself, rocking his, alongside Lori Carns Hudson. We'd love to send one to you and spread the positivity! Buy here.


Also, if you haven't watched the video for "Animals of Pride" yet, check it out. Our second video, for "NMA," is in the works now.

Can't wait to see you all out there.
Yours in friendship and rock,
Jerry and B.
