💎FAIL💎 is out & MASS is open for pre-orders!

Hello, friends!

We're so proud to share "FAIL" with you today, the second single from our forthcoming album. We're also excited to tell you that the album is called MASS, and you can finally pre-order it!

"FAIL" is a one-sided conversation between Buick and her longtime friend Marc Orleans who died by suicide in 2020. The song grapples with speaking about him in the past tense, hoping he knew how much she cared about and respected him when he was alive, and wondering if he can see and hear her now. The video (shot and directed by Jerry) premiered in Metal Injection yesterday, and the track is now streaming everywhere. We hope you love it. The cover is a photo of Buick at Walden Pond as a teenager, layered with a photo of Marc's hands playing his resonator guitar. The images are inverted and upside-down to express the unmooring impact of his passing.

MASS is a co-production between us and Kurt Ballou, a concept record that we're going to continue to unspool over the coming months. It feels great to share the pre-order for the physical copies of the work, as well as the book that Buick has written to accompany the music. It's called MASS: Essays on Memory, Language, & the State of Massachusetts. Both projects will be out in September. We recommend ordering them now, as there are some very limited merch offerings, including hand-rendered cyanotype prints—all numbered and signed! 

Thank you for being here for chapters one and two, and we'll be back with more of the story very soon.

We're so grateful for your continued support. Enjoy "FAIL"!

More soon!

💎FAIL💎 is coming May 5th - pre-save today!

Hello, friends!

This is a quick note to let you know that the second single from our forthcoming album will be out on May 5th. It's called "FAIL." We'd be so grateful if you'd take a moment to pre-save/pre-add the track!

The new record is a collection about memory, language, and the state of Massachusetts; a co-production between us and Kurt Ballou. The project was prompted by the suicide of one of Buick Audra's longtime friends, and "FAIL" directly addresses that loss.

We're so grateful for your support of the lead single, "BLUE," and hope you love "FAIL." We sure do.

More soon!

💎BLUE💎 is out today - first single from the new album!


BLUE is out today! This is the lead single from our new body of work, a collection about memory, language, and the state of Massachusetts. A co-production between us and Kurt Ballou. We hope you love it!

“If you don’t yet have the language for what you want to say, you will.”
This is the thesis statement contained within “BLUE," which opens the forthcoming record. The work explores finding new vocabulary around lived experiences that were once cloudy and confusing for Buick Audra. We're so excited to share the first piece of this story. She says:

“Writing this project was largely prompted by the suicide of an old Boston friend. When he died, I glanced back at things I’d never wanted to, and I wrote a whole record about it. The process was like going underwater for short bursts and coming back up for air when I needed to. While I was down there, I was like, I suddenly see what all of this was, and I’m going to name it now.”

The video, which Jerry Roe shot, directed, and edited, premiered at CVLT Nation yesterday!

We're playing two shows next week to celebrate the new single, including a hometown show at DRKMTTR! Hope to see some of you there! Dates and links below.


Thank you for being here! We hope you love BLUE!

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,
