well well well.... been awhile. we took all of november and most of december off. first time in 3 years we didn't have any shows for 2 months straight. it was a nice break. got to clear our heads and get used to home again. we broke that fast with a super fun NYE show up in Ketchum at a new restaurant bar there called Sego. they treated us really well and threw quite a party. sold out the day before the show and despite the sub zero temps outside it was a rip-roaring celebration to welcome 2011.
felt really great to be back in the saddle again. we're excited to put this fresh energy we have into new material as writing and recording a new album will be our priority for 2011. we will continue to do some touring around the region with the occasional larger jaunt... all in all, super excited about the Boise music scene right now. it's churning. good stuff happening all over. pumped to be spending more time here in the midst of it all.
quick couple things of note: we're touring the NW with our good friends World's Greatest Ghosts (portland) in February in two stints. those tour dates (and the tour poster by Santiago Uceda to go with them) as well as an upcoming date in Boise with Tennis are below. but first, wanted to share our new video for "Dali" that was premiered by Magnet Magazine a few days before Christmas. this was shot and edited by fellow Boisean Tyler T Williams here in Boise and features several other friends from Boise and a few from Moscow. LOVE how this came out.
