Gosh I wish this tour started tomorrow.  I haven’t left my house in days and it’s getting weird.  Mike and I are dusting off the R. Ring songs and adding a few new ones.  Be on the look out for more info and updates here.  Until then, stay warm.

I guess it was a year ago already that Kelley and I played a show in Omaha, NE.  After we finished, a nice girl named Laura from the band Mynabirds offered us a place to stay.  She had a lovely house and a rugged, yet playful dog ( whose name I’ve forgotten… maybe ‘Robo’ or ‘Timmy’?).  The next morning she invited us to walk down the block to her pal Isa’s house who was preparing for us … The best goddamned brunch we’ ve ever had! Turns out that Isa Chandra Moskowitz is a renowned chef and author of bestselling vegan cookbooks.  Isa joked that if she ever got her own cooking show she would ask us to write the theme song.  Fast forward… The show, Make It Vegan, is here and our song ‘Salt’ will be featured in it.  We couldn’t be more honored!

You can watch the show here: Isa’s Post Punk Kitchen Site  

You can get the song here:  iTunes  Amazon  Kelley’s Store

From an amorphous glop of orange-tinted goo, the Gods of science have birthed a batch of transparent discs. We are excited to announce that our debut 7” will be released by Misra Records on October 30, 2012. The ‘Orange’ side is ‘Fallout and Fire’, the ‘Banana’ side is ‘SEE’.
The graphic depiction of cross-pollinating fruit was drawn by our weird friend Ali Calis at Able Projects. 
To mark the occasion we will do a short tour leading up to the release (see dates below). In the meantime, you can listen to ‘Fallout and Fire’ on Pitchfork, where they were kind enough to debut it for us. 
If you can’t make it out to any of the shows but still want to hear what we sound like ‘live’ ( or what we sounded like on a hot day in July) our Daytrotter Session has just been released. 
Dates:
Oct 25 at Shake It Records, Cincinnati, OH 7pm FREE 
Oct 26 at the Firehouse, North Manchester, IN  
Oct 27 at the Shitty Barn/Knitty Barn, Spring Green, WI ( Bring your knit or crochet project! ) 
Oct 28 at the Abbey Pub, Chicago,IL with the Avengers! 
Oct 29 at Omega Music, Dayton,OH. 7pm FREE
