New single "AND IF MY BODY" out today // New vinyl pre-order open!

 Hello, all!

As promised, we're thrilled to share our new single, "AND IF MY BODY," with you today. This is a work of protest, a boundary against bodily control and the attitudes that got us here, to this post-Roe reality. Our usual collaborators Kurt Ballou and Brad Boatright worked on it with us. The folx at Treble premiered the video yesterday. Watch it here:

We are also pleased to announce RELEASE THE REST, a limited vinyl compilation of the singles we’ve released since HOLD ON TO YOURSELF, remastered for vinyl by Brad Boatright. Many people have asked us about "STONECHILD / YOUR REIGN IS OVER" and "ALTAR / LAND OF MEN" being released on vinyl, and now those songs will all be in one place! “AND IF MY BODY” opens the EP!

Available for pre-order now, ships on December 1st. Semi-transparent violet vinyl, 45 RPM. Grab one while they last!

We have more dates to announce soon, but mark your calendars for these upcoming shows if you're nearby!

11.26 - Youngstown, OH @ Westside Bowl
12.16 -  Nashville, TN @ DRKMTTR

Thank you for being here! We hope you enjoy the new work.
Yours in protest and solidarity,
Buick & Jerry, FC

September shows!

Hey pals!

We hope you've had a great summer so far!

We're doing well, save for the absolutely destructive and dangerous Supreme Court ruling that overturned Roe v. Wade on June 24th. Unreal and yet also totally real. We stand with all who support bodily autonomy and have much more to say on the subject; stay tuned for an announcement about that very soon. 

In the meantime, we're thrilled to be heading out to play two festivals in just a couple of weeks! We already told you about Scorched Tundra XII in Chicago on September 2nd. We're playing the second of the three nights with REZN, THOU, and HUNTSMEN. If you don't already have tickets, get them now!

CHICAGO: BUY TICKETS HERE


The very next night, September 3rd, we're at PRFBBQLOU2022 in Louisville! It's another incredible line-up and we truly can't wait. We hope to see all kinds of friends and other bands.

LOUISVILLE: BUY TICKETS HERE

In other news: the first two singles from Buick's forthcoming solo album, Conversations with My Other Voice, have been released! "Afraid of Flying" and "The Melody" can be found anywhere you listen to music. The third single is called "Deadbolt" and is out this Friday, August 19th; pre-save it if you're interested! If you'd like to pre-order the album and book of essays she wrote to accompany it, you can do so now! Both are out on September 23rd.

If you missed it: Jerry released a rad EP of instrumental tracks in April called Track Guy Kloarb 1.1: Origin of Doomkloarb. You can stream and/or buy it here! He also released a cover of "Goro and the Emperor" and made a whole video of himself tracking it during the early shutdown of 2020. Check it out!

Hope to see some of you very soon!
Thanks for being here,

We made a new album!

Hello, friends!

We hope you're all doing well in this new year! We know it's been a minute since we've checked in. We have a good excuse: we've been making our third LP! When we last spoke, we had just released "ALTAR" and "LAND OF MEN" (thank you all for listening and watching!) and we were leaving for our November tour. So great to see some of you out there! As soon as the tour ended, we went up to Salem and made a new record with Kurt Ballou at his awesome God City studio. Here are a few photos from the sessions, all by Kim Maroon. 



Buick sang the record back here in Nashville over the course of December, and then it was mixed by Kurt; Brad Boatright has since mastered it. We're getting it ready to bring it to you! We're really excited about the territory we covered on this album, both sonically and thematically. If you'd like to read a bit about that, here's a brand new piece that was published yesterday! Thanks to Josh Ewers and Main Street Nashville for the interview and feature!


Buick also talked about the album and the two recent singles in this interview on the Heavy Hops podcast!
That's it for now! We'll have more announcements for you soon. Thanks so much for being here.

Last, Buick has started a new written series called Massachusetts Memories; works of flash non-fiction. They relate to our new record! Check them out over on her site; the first one is up now and she'll be adding to them as she can.

We love and appreciate you!
