~ The end of an era, the beginning of another ~
We're sad to announce that our keyboardist, Andrew King, has decided to leave the band. After two years of touring, recording, and some incredible memories that we've made along the way, he's decided to take his life in a different direction.
Whatever the future brings for him, we know he'll never stop bringing joy to others. We'll miss him as a bandmate, but he will always be a part of the company.
~ That’s Pretty lunar, dude! ~
Our newest release, Lunar Dude (EP), is available for streaming!
~ Summer Tour and More ~
Good news, everyone! We finally have A/C in our van. And we’re gonna need it this summer, since we’re heading out on our longest (both in terms of distance and in time) than we ever have! Head on over to the “Tour Dates” page to see our full list of performances. Notable first-time locations include a few citiers in Colorado, Wisconsin, and Chicago.
In other news, we’ve been in the studio recording a couple of new tracks, “393” and “Lunar Dude”. It’s cumulonimbific. Keep your eyes and ears open, folks! We will also soon be releasing a music video for “Laura, I’m Sorry About the Cobbler” off of last year’s release, RemoteVision.
~ first official music video release ~
Unsuspecting patrons of the community garden, lo and behold! Thine eyes do not deceive thee. In the flesh, or shall I say in the fiber, five young plantlings and their dashingly handsome bee-friend (a weird and complicated symbiotic relationship I’d prefer to not delve into at this time), spread their roots deep into the fertile soil, like barnacles to a salty pier. Lucky for our plant friends, the sunshine on this glorious day was to beam down in full force. And so, a scrumptious photosynthetic brunch was to be enjoyed by all. Further on down the food chain, their cunning bee friend, a beneficiary of his plant companions’ supernatural autonomous food making abilities, will gorge on creamy nectar to his antenna's delight….which may necessitate a trip to the local hivegreens for some pepto bees-mol….but that’s another story. Our plant friends and their bee companion had quite the afternoon one could say. Vine-y Vine-y Vicci. And so it is fortunate for you, our dear reader, that you can live vicariously through their plant shenanigans from the comfort of your own living room! Enjoy at your own risk!
