New Works In Progress on Our Youtube Channel


This song was recorded & performed January 21st in Tyler’s bedroom as a last minute get together before our show that night @ the New Orleans Howlin’ Wolf. It had been written just a couple days before then and we wanted to take some time to work out some parts before the show. Luckily, Cody from http://www.goodmusicallday.com had his camera on him and managed to catch it. Enjoy! Let us know what you think

Two New Free Songs – “Arrange/Got Along” Live & “Tell Me Why” (Cover)

First off, HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY!!!! As part of our ongoing campaign to keep gaining Facebook fans as we release a new demo, song, cover, etc, etc for every 100 fans gained, we are excited to announce that we have two more tracks for you guys that we’re sure you’ll love. Since we have now reached the 1,200 & 1,300 mark, we have two songs for you today!

1. Arrange/Got Along

[Right click save as to download]

This past June 2011, we had the pleasure of being able to play a benefit show @ local DIY mecca, Breezys in a very rare 3-piece form that was a hella good time. The track opens with the ever so smooth & sweltering Sharks Teeth track “Arrange” & then moves into “Got Along,” a track off of our upcoming EP “Gifts.”

2. Tell Me Why

[Right click save as to download]

This one is quite the gem. Just a good old lazy day homage to the great Neil Young and his track “Tell Me Why” recorded by Tyler in his bedroom after we ran out things to watch on Netflix. Hope you like it!

So, Thanks again!

Be sure to keep on keeping on with suggesting us to your friends! We can’t thank you guys enough for the support you have given us already. Also, if you haven’t already, sign up for our email list on the right side of the page – we’ll be announcing some more exciting news very soon!

Day 8- Asheville, NC

After staying the night in Knoxville with our new friend Brandon, we headed out early in search of a Mac store to fix Devin’s crotchety old laptop.  We had a reliably-par lunch in the food court and loaded up into the vehicle.  It was my day to drive.  The mixture of swerving mountain roads and our big bad trailer kept me on edge, and the 3 hours to Asheville went by pretty quick.  The city was especially charming.  We played in a strange little restaurant/venue and made lots of inappropriate jokes about the rapture.  After the show, we decided to light some gas station fireworks in celebration.  They were supposed to be sparkler fountain things, but 2 out of 3 just exploded… relatively unsafe, yes. But a damn good time.  We arrived at our friend Jon’s house a little later to crash.  It just happened to be UP IN some mountains.  Asheville was a beautiful place.
