... real quick like

We all made it back from Europe no worse for ware.
The trip was better than any of us could have expected! I'll post a full breakdown just as soon as we get back from this Southeast trip with the almighty Boris!!

We leave today for a quick trip through the Southeast with one of our all time favorite bands Boris (Japan). As a matter of fact the first show the 3 of us saw together after forming TW was Boris. There are only a handful of dates with them but I couldn't be more stoked!
To say we've been looking forward to this would be a huge understatement!!

After our last show with them (New Orleans) we make a stop in Baton Rouge for a show with Thou and then return home to play Dallas with Joe Lally.
the next week and a half should be great!

I'll have a full wrap up of the trip to Europe and the Boris shows in a few weeks.

Our new E.P. comes out today and we hope everyone that's enjoyed our stuff so far has a goodtime with it! I.N.O. is one of the first song we recorded as a band. We did it where we practice and on our own recording gear. We got a chance to play around with several ideas on that song and i think it stands as a nice bridge to show where we've come since the beginning. It's strange to be saying this for a second time this year, but we'd really like to thank Kemado for putting this out! We never expected to get I.N.O. on wax but we're stoked we did! 

We'll see everybody down south just as soon as we get home. Once we start to run wild with Boris!



:::Back from the East to go back to the West:::

According to Dr. Dre California knows how to party,
and we're going to put that to the test in just a few days time!

We'll be all over the west coast playing shows with the ever so awesome Grails and even a couple with our good friends MOAB! After that we head north for our 1st return to Portland & Seattle, and then it's on to new territory in Boise & Salt Lake City. 
Sorry Denver! 
Hopefully we can work something out for next time. 

***Not much has been said about it yet but we have an E.P. being released by Kemado in early October. It's titled "I.N.O." and will be available on 12" vinyl. The album will contain 3 songs from the As High As... session, 2 songs recorded by us at our jam space (I.N.O. was one of our first recordings together), and new artwork form D.H., Kenneth, & Mats!!!***
