WHEREVER I MIGHT LAND

This September, we’re crossing the pond for our first-ever tour of Europe and the UK. It covers 9 countries and will have us playing 24 shows in 24 days.

To support the tour, we’re releasing a 5-song acoustic EP called "Wherever I Might Land". It contains a new song, some alternate/reworked versions of old songs, and a cover of one of our favorite bands.

Touring overseas an absolute dream come true, but it’s also proving to be a massive logistical and financial undertaking. Airfare alone costs us $5,000, and that’s before driver/van fees, equipment rental, tolls, shipping merchandise internationally, and keeping 5 people fed and sane for a month in Europe. 

If you have a spare $5 to help us out (or more, if you’d like), it will go directly towards offsetting some of those costs. In return, you’ll get a high-quality digital download of this EP, recorded specifically for this cause. 

Thank you for supporting our little band. It means the world - especially now, in a totally non-hyperbolic way.

Back in early 2012 we put out a split with a great band called The French Exit from Los Angeles. They’re probably two of my favorite songs we’ve ever recorded / released, but I feel like not too many people know that it exists. "Milkcrate" is about the house where we formed and played our first show. (THE MILKCRATE IS DEAD. LONG LIVE THE MILKCRATE.) "Stale Air" is another one of our favorite jams - I think we played it most nights on our full US tour in 2012.Stream the songs on our Bandcamp / grab the 7” from Solidarity Recordings.STREAM IT HERE // BUY IT HERE
