Show at Siberia and Bears.

Voodoo was a blast. We have a picture to prove it too. Josh Brasted took a dope photo of Tyler and now it’s online at Chill.

Update: We can’t stop laughing at this one of Ross on

Bearz Are xCoolx

In other news, we have totally rad show coming up with Zula from Brooklyn. They’re fucking sick so we really hope you come out. Here’s a few tracks of theirs that we’re recently premiered on Stereogum back in august.

Also, incase you missed it, we put out a new jam the other day. Terterlly freeeee.

Still trying to figure out what the hell that bear is doing on that “poster” for the event.

Voodoo Fest


It’s been nearly a year since we wrote a blog post. That’s nuts. Well, a lot has gone down in the past year. Between the halloween show where we covered The Ramones, our Block Party set (video of us bustin’ out a new jam), and working on the new album this year has been real chill.

Anyways, we’re really excited to announce that we’ll be playing at this years Voodoo Music Experience. We play at 3:45PM on the Carnival Stage. We would love to see you! That’s about all for now….back to working on the album land.
