It’s a beautiful day back home in Philly, where we’re recovering from our crazy week with Civil Twilight! Looking back, its hard to believe we squeezed so much into such a short time:
– Had some killer iced coffee (and played some music) at Jammin’ Java in VA
– Shot an in-office acoustic session at RELIX magazine before our Bowery Ballroom show
– Played some cornhole with our new friends at WRRV
– Quick trip to the Midwest to see some new faces and old friends in Cleveland and helping to #KeepIndyIndie
Our proudest moment may have been surviving #NoSleepTilXPNfest, driving to Buffalo to play the KERFUFFLE afterparty then driving back home overnight to play XPoNential Festival the next morning. Despite being sleep deprived, the XPoNential Festival was one of the most fun shows we’ve ever played! When you pair great bands like Courtney Barnett & St Vincent with super supportive fans, you can’t go wrong. You can listen to our set here
Also, a lot of you have been asking about the last two songs in our set since they’re not on our debut album. One of them is actually a very old song called “Waiting, Waiting,” which we started playing live fairly recently. And the other is a brand new song called “Feel Like That.” We hope to record and release them soon but until then, you’ll have to enjoy them in person!
You can also expect another music video pretty soon… But if I told you any more I’d have to kill you. Not really, I just like keeping you in suspense.
What I CAN tell you is that we are gonna be playing Philly again on September 12th at the TLA with our good buds CRUISR. You can get your tickets here:http://concerts.livenation.com/event/02004EC9CCFE55EB
One last thing! We’ve heard the requests for an online store, and we’ve answered!
You can finally get your hands on some sweet new CHEERLEADER shirts or that vinyl you’ve been drooling over for weeks. If you enter the promo code METACOMET we will include some rad stickers for FREE with any purchase.
Thanks again for tuning in, see y’all next time. Cheeeeeeeyeahhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!
