NEW ALBUM, BILL // 10.5.18

Friends!

We're thrilled to share the release date of our second album, BILL: October 5th, 2018. We made this record with Steve Albini at Electrical Audio in Chicago IL. We're so proud of it and so ready for you to hear it. The first single and video, "Horrify," releases on all digital platforms on August 17th! There will be more to come between then and the album's release, so please be sure to follow, like, and subscribe to us wherever you get your music! Links below.

As a body of work, BILL is about to trying to be a human and know other humans during inhumane times. Part of that is reckoning with one's self, part of that is either accepting those around us or letting them go. And yet another part of that is making sure that we're not just focusing on our own success and safety, but those of the community around us. It's time for tolerance and service and hope, not destroying one another and ourselves.


The stunning album cover photo was taken by Zach Barocas; we love it so much. The design was done by Buick Audra and Ric Simenson.

RAISE YOUR VOICE TOUR IN MAY + RED FANG SHOW!

Hello!

Happy almost Spring! We're dropping you a line to let you know about some upcoming live shows. We're heading back to Texas for our second year of Houston Punkfest at the end of April! Also, we're thrilled to announce that we're doing a hometown show with RED FANG on May 4th! Tickets are available now HERE

In addition to those shows, check out the RAISE YOUR VOICE tour! We've decided to travel to some of the states with the lowest voter turnout numbers in recent elections and offer voter registration options right at the shows. In states that have any kind of online voter registration, we'll have electronic registration stations. In states where you still have to fill out paperwork, we'll have that, too! We believe in everyone's right to have a say, and voting is part of that process. Plus, these shows will be rad hangs. Dates below, and more will be added to this list! Be sure to track us on Bandsintown for updates and additional events.


Last, we know we haven't told you when the new record will be out. Soon, friends. Soon.


Yours in friendship and PMA,

FC

THANK YOU FOR 2017 // NEW ALBUM COMING IN 2018

Hello hello!
We've made a new album; a second album! We spent six days in the studio with Steve Albini at the end of November and beginning of this month. The experience was positive, singular, life-affirming, and quite productive. Electrical Audio is outrageously cool and we feel fortunate to have made some art there. Steve made the process so enjoyable and easy, we don't know how we ever worked without him.

The album will be released next year and we look forward to sharing it with you! We're working on making that happen right now. In the meantime, here are some photos from our sessions, and there are more where these came from.



* * *
Earlier in the year, we released the JUNEBUG 7" and also had our song "Scuffle" included on the Resolution of Happiness compilation. If you haven't yet heard either of those bodies of work, check them out! They benefit the ACLU and Lambda Legal, respectively. We made videos for "Berlin" and "Scuffle," too. Fun projects all around. We also did a few tours within the U.S., all of which were fulfilling.

We'd like to thank you for making our 2017 such a purposeful year. To everyone who came out to the shows, bought music, watched the videos, shared the work with others, talked to us, hugged us, played shows with us, let us crash on your floors and couches, and simply just believed in the mission: we thank you.

May the new year bring us together again, and give us all opportunities to be of service to others.

Yours in friendship and PMA,
FC
