We are back from the UK and putting some finishing touches on our next release while also preparing for some local shows. The next one is June 7th at Boot and Saddle on Broad Street. We are psyched to be playing with Philly bands Langor and Dream Safari and to share some brand new songs with you!
Our UK schedule was jam packed. We played 7 shows in 8 days with only two days off. We explored museums, worked on the record, and when we had time we went out for a “pint” or two. We traveled the countryside playing music together and life was just like a dream.
We made many new friends in England and we were reunited with some old ones. Thank you all for being so supportive! It was incredible to feel so much love so far from home. Thanks to The Hold Steady too for taking us with them on the road for a couple shows. In Manchester we were able to watch from side stage as they awed a sold out crowd at Academy 3. They were amazing and they put EVERYTHING into their music. They’re the real deal. We also opened for a new Canadian band called Alvvays, and if you don’t know who they are yet, you should definitely get familiar!
The NME stage at Corn Exchange for the Great Escape Festival was the high point of the journey. We pulled up to the venue and the streets were flooded with people. There was so much electricity and excitement in the room — I know all the guys in the band will remember that show for a very long time.
