Dressed Sharply MTV video premiere

Mar 24 2011

Hey friends

How are you? We are both well. We are really enjoying playing new songs and we hope you have liked what you have seen so far if you have a caught a recent show. Thanks to everyone who came out and saw us play at SXSW in Austin. There are so many bands playing it’s a miracle anyone gets to see anything. Personally I just want to find a dark corner and cover my ears with my hands and rock back and forth. Not you guys! No way! You came to our shows and were awesome!

We made a new video for new song Dressed Sharply in New York City recently with director Alan Ortiz. It has been selected to be a part of MTV’s Indie Music Month. MTV2 and mtvU are premiering the video starting at 6pm TONIGHT! That’s Thursday, March 24. Make sure you tune in. I want to tell you to set your VCR’s but most people don’t do that anymore. I think most people record TV digitally or something like that. My TV is only hooked up to my DVD player. That’s as technical as I get. However, if I did have a TV that showed TV I would watch it. You can watch the video online now HERE >

Also, if you pre-order our new album WALLS now from anhorse.com you will instantly get Dressed Sharply and 2 other album songs delivered to your inbox!

If you haven’t already seen our tour page it is growing like a teenager. We have added a whole stack of US dates and there are more to be added. If you live in the New York City area don’t forget we are officially launching WALLS on April 26th at the Knitting Factory in Brooklyn. The entire Album Launch show will also be streaming live on the web via Livestream. RSVP HERE > The rest of our US dates and ticket links are HERE >

We are also really excited to be playing a few shows around Bamboozle with the Alkaline Trio and heading out on a run of dates with Manchester Orchestra. At all the shows from April 26th we will be selling our new record and we will have a stack of new merch. Speaking of new merch, a couple of new items have been added to our online merch store. Check it out.

Planet Earth is on the TV in the hotel room and because of that this took me a long time to write. Those camels eat so much snow!!!

Thanks for responding to us on Facebook regarding this blog! Your questions are awesome and funny. First of all, if you ask us if we are coming to your town, we can’t confirm or deny if we are BUT please know, we are doing are best to get everywhere. The world is very large and we are quite small so it does take time. We will do out best.

In short form (please refer to Facebook q’s and in no particular order): Yes, I like cheese; No I have never kept a kangaroo or koala as a pet. My friend had a pet kangaroo growing up and it often puncture her parents water bed (it was the 80′s) with its claws; As for an afternoon snack, anything that involves Jatz and Vegemite or say BBQ shapes or simply chocolate; WALLS is just overall way better than Rearrange Beds; Right now I am reading lots of Raymond Carver, but he is a bit of a bummer to read; I loved The King’s Speech. Geoffry Rush should have won the oscar. OH and Animal Kingdom!!! If you haven’t seen that go and get it out!!!!!!!!! Amazing and brutal insight into an awful Australian family.  Jacki Weaver SHOULD HAVE WON BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS. Damon told me he loved Blue Valentine. I didn’t want to see it because I thought it would bum me out but I loved it; Top 5 albums of all time is just too hard to answer; I have never really watched any reality tv and I don’t plan to start; I have ridden a horse many times. I can’t say I am really into it but I know a lot of people who are; It’s hard to choose a favourite track from Thriller but please know I did sit here and think about it!

I have to get back to band practice! See you soon.
