Happy Holidays and Merry Recording!
We hope you enjoyed your turkey, frenzy-inducing shopping deals and awkward conversations with family as much as we did. And we hope you have a great deal of fun doing it all over again this Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and/or Christmas.
In the period in between, we’re going to be busting our butts to make our next record. We recorded the drums and bass for all 11 songs on Sunday, and will be recording a great deal more over the next four weeks. Keep an eye on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for picture, clips and more.
Have a wonderful holiday season — you’ll be hearing a lot from us in the new year!
Come Overthrow Pop With Us!
First of all, we want to express our deep gratitude for the hospitality and support you all gave us on our first tour. It was heartwarming, humbling, and truly life-affirming. The good times we had with all of you are we make this music in the first place.
We’ve got one last show in 2014, and it’s gonna be a doozie. We’re honored to be a part of Boston’s leg of the International Pop Overthrow Festival, a roaming showcase for up-and-coming acts put on by the illustrious David Bash. The festival runs 11/19-22 at O’Brien’s Pub in Allston, and we’re kicking off this celebration of local music at 8PM on 11/19 ($10, 21+). We’ll be giving our new material one last run through before we record it all next month. We’ll see you there!
C-C-CMJ and the Jets!
We started working on a certain cover when we had to play a gig last summer down two of our members, and were inspired to make it as loud and silly as possible. Since then, it has only grown sillier and louder, and we couldn’t be more proud of what has become a live staple and a source of endless fun for us. We’re so happy to share our version of the illustrious Elton John’s “Bennie and the Jets”: download it RIGHT HERE. Special thanks to Brendan Machowski, Dom DiMaria, and Ryan Jordan.
As we’ve been readying this song for release, we’ve been biting our tongues about some other incredible news. We’re unbearably excited to announce that we will be a part of Berklee College of Music’s showcase at CMJ Music Marathon in NYC on 10/24!!! This is one of the largest and most prestigious conferences in the world, and we couldn’t be happier to be a part of it. More details will be available in our show section as well soon.
In the midst of all this good news, there is some disappointment — we won’t be heading to Charlottesville on this tour after all. Virginia, we love you, just think of this as a raincheck. But Boston, Newport, Bridgeport, NYC, Philadelphia, Baltimore and DC, you best be ready…
See you all in about a month!
