NEW ALBUM AND TOUR NEWS!
We are in the special time before tour when you realize that everything you've been thinking about for a while is actually going to happen. Arrangements have been made, records have been pressed, t-shirts silkscreened and songs rehearsed, and now there ain't nothing to it but to do it. Deep breaths and commencement of jamming. Awesome.
This weekend we're going upstate to shoot our first ever video, for "Money In The Afterlife" from our new record Fill Up The Room. We'll get the video up on the site here as soon as it's edited and viewable. From there we leave for a week of shows with the Blow and then CMJ and
then our entire US tour. Tour dates are finalized and up here now.
In attempts to show love to all the people in different cities who have been so kind to us over the years, we're treating every show kind of like a record release show, and subsequently a party. Ann Arbor is home to the band in many ways, so we hope to have an off the hook time
for the release show there, but Portland, San Fran, New York, Phoenix, and really almost every city we're going to also seems like part of
home, so we're treating our shows as such. Not to play favorites, but our Chicago stops are going to be especially sweet affairs, and I'll
tell you why...
There will be two shows in Chicago, one 21+ show at The Hideout one night and an all ages show at Schuba's the next night. The sets will be completely different, with the Hideout show full of our more spazzed-out danceparty jams, and the Schuba's show the next night with an extended band and different instrumentation, still a party, but focusing more on our dreamier and experimental songs as well as the guitar solo freakouts. We'll be playing songs for these shows that have never been preformed live before, including older stuff off of our earliest eps and records and material from Cold Colors, Green Mansions, etc. Both shows will be recorded professionally and then released in a deluxe double-live gatefold LP set sometime next year!!!
If that's not complicated enough, we're asking people who are coming to the shows, or just fans in general to send in their requests of songs they want to hear. Check out our MySpace blog about it or just get in touch with us directly at this address.
Ok, still so much to do before we leave. Words can't express the excitement for this tour, this record and to see everyone again. Take good care and we'll see you soon.

TOUR WITH THE BLOW
We are so pleased to announce today that before we begin our headlining tour to support our new record, we will be joining K Records labelmates and true sweethearts of pop sounds The Blow for a mini tour of the eastmost coast. With just five short shows, it might be hard to communicate the maximum amount of love necessary to cleanse the hearts and minds of everyone in New York, Philly, Boston, Columbus Ohio and DC, but we will do our very best. We should have a limited amount of copies of the new record available for sale before the official release date by then, but not sure. We will definitely have new t-shirts with new designs, as well as some possible reading material and even newer songs than the ones that are already new. Please make a point to be at these shows if you're in the neighborhood. I'm pretty sure they're entirely all ages and the combination of these two musical forces is one that will no doubt alter history or at least be a lot of fun every night. Thanks as always for your love and support.

We are supreemley stoked to announce we'll be doing a show in Brooklyn this summer. Tuesday July 17 at the Luna Lounge with our friends from Stockholm, The Shout Out Louds! Please come out and make New Yourke in the summer time all we know it can be. There may be another east coast jam or two in the works as well, we'll keep you posted.
Oh, and speaking of Stockholm, this just went up today:
It's footage of Betty & Fred walking through the streets of Stockholm right before our last gig there playing "Typing" as people gave us weird looks and wondered if we were shooting a very casual video. Maybe we were? Hope you enjoy it.
